So you have a love-hate relationship. That's a tough one. I have more love than hate for the game, tbh.
It wasn't how you played that made me not feel like playing (I didn't rage during those games). It was more how utterly one-sided it somehow became for you both times in those high AP matches that ruined the fun for me lol.
Also, yeah. I really do love this game, but the sheer amount of frustration online matches can put me through is almost unbearable. I've been trying to control my own rage (when it comes to video game) recently, and had actually been doing well, but lately . . . it's just too much.
Sometime you have to take a break from the game to enjoy it in later time. I suggest you should do that if you need to cool down.
I haven't played Uncharted MP for 2 weeks, so I expect myself to enjoy the game with some causal fun and friends once I return to the game.
Hey, I'm looking forward to DMC next week, so I might take a break from PSAS to complete that game.
You should absolutely quit playing the game. That's what I'm doing. I gave up on it two days ago. I always play with my close buddy online(which kind of sucks since we can only do 2v2 online, can't do FFA unless we want to fight comps). We played about 4 matches and after running into everything you did I just said "F It" and turned it off. We've been playing Dungeon Defenders and Killzone 3 ever since and it's sssssssooooooo much better. I was already on thin ice since I didn't get my titles for the 2nd month in a row. And until Superbot fixes their awful servers and rewards system, I refuse to play anymore. What's the point when it's no longer enjoyable?
I have never been so let down by a company before. This game could be so amazing but it's so retarded and frustrating. I'm so sick of having to re-invite my buddy after every single match. We can't even talk in the score screen since we always get disconnected. Why did I work so hard for those set of Purple Belts(both seasons, 2v2 and FFA) if I was just going to get bent over and take it up the behind!? Superbot's complete lack of communication is so disheartening that I have no desire to even touch this game.
On a side note too, I'm honestly realizing just how bad some of the design is. Kill Confirms completely sabotage the idea of a 3 tier super system. And I can't stand how freaking spammy everything in this game is. Why is their no recovery time on any move in this game? The final match I played was against a Raiden(I was Sir Daniel). He did the Square mash combo and counter over and over again, instant kill confirm on getting level 1. Rinse and repeat until match end. The sad part was since he has no delay and all priority on all of his moves, I can block his full combo, only to have him hit me again before I can fight back. Why would they even make a character like that?
So in closing, take a long hard break from this game, I feel your pain completely good sir.
I'm sorry you feel that way, and I would like for you to keep playing this fantastic game that is only going to improve and SuperBot has already shown with the first patch that they will continually improve the game. But concerning what you said, what would you like the Raidens to do? Knowing you can combo into your level one, would you expect someone not to try it? Also, if it works, why not use it? Regarding the counter... you have to hit them for it to work. See what I'm saying? A lot of this game is player style and reading your opponent. Even with kill confirms I can have 2v2 and 1v1 games stock last a very long time. Long enough to where I badly want timed stock ( SSBB ). I am a player that utilizes my kill confirms and if you are going to allow me to land them, you will see a quickly ended match. Defend against it, now its a totally different game. It's honestly like standing in a Captain Falcon FALCON PUNCH without shielding. That seems silly doesn't it? Same concept here.
