Nothing like a 7-game losing streak in your most recent favorite competitive game to kind of put you off of playing ranked. :|
The lower I get, the less people cooperate, and pre-made teams are more likely to beat us. It's a vicious cycle. If I play with my kid, we play in Gold/Platinum and win games, and I sometimes get MVP... so I know it's not just me.
I mean, I gotta admit, I was never very good at competitive games, and now in my 50's my reflexes are trash... there's a noticeable lag between "I see that" and "I need to click to block that". I find myself going, "WTF, why didn't I catch that!?"
