I don't care about rankings at all. I want to play with smart and decent teammates who can play complex tactics. Why do I need a random set of partners and the same primitive tactics (aka inf rush)? It doesn't give me pleasure.
Before this patch, our team was mostly matchmaking with noticeably comparable teams in terms of skill, and we were getting tactically difficult, but interesting matches... Now I get random partners, and with them (in most cases) I get suffering and boredom over the past state of matchmaking and my smart and decent friends from this game.
