Yup, MW2019 was the breaking point for me too. I think people have simply assumed that newbies don't like being stomped on and treated it as gospel and never, ever challenge this.The system in MW2019 was terrible. Do well in one match? You're going to loose every match for the rest of the night.
No, when I start a brand new game I expect to be shit on. I am not a fucking idiot that runs off crying cause I can't play like a pro in my first game. I only started playing Halo PvP 5 years ago...so I was up against people with 15 years of experience. I was also from COD, so I knew nothing of Halo and it was so radically different I couldn't get a kill for ages. But I chalked it up to being new and worked my way up till I was great at it.
This idea that newbies hate losing may be true in some cases, but not everyone is a spineless little bitch. In order to attract casual gamers who won't stick around for the long haul anyway, you alienate all the hardcore gamers who have stuck around for ages. Devs need to stop treating this "no new players don't like to die" as gospel. It's simply not true.
