Only two basic loadouts, no radar, no AA? How is it not skiful? How is it not competitive when you're playing to be the winning team?
Anyway, I disagree about SWAT and Custom being the only enjoyable things. I hate Customs, never go on them.
I'd say SWAT, Grifball, Big Team, Dominion and Flood are the only enjoyable things on MP (otherwise I'd throw in Spartan Ops too).
The MLG playlist.....isn't that Team Snipers, Team Throwdown and Rumble Pit? Probably whichever is the lowest populated playlist is the MLG one since the majority of players are nothing like those no-lifers. --- "If you don't like something, don't watch it again.
