Want to know the problem with PvP?

The problem with PvP is that you don't get to choose your difficulty. If you're getting scobbed, too bad. Play more for practice. Of course the problem with that is the people that are scobbing you play like 8-10 hours a day, so unless you want to do that, you're still going to get scobbed. If you want to chill and have a good casual Battlefield fight, too bad. You're playing on PvP difficulty where people get scobbed.

Yes, I suck at PvP. Yes, I want to play the new Battlefield games. How do I go about enjoying a specific game that has a major flaw like that in it?

I have never heard the term scobbed before today.

Thank you for teaching me a new word.

Uh, either stick to playing the campaign or try to find a newb server. If that fails, Just play like every other noob and choose recon and play it exclusively as a sniper instead of helping the team...

Easy, play Starcraft 2. That matchmaking system has got it down.

You don't. The older you get, the less appeal any of these games have. Well, on a personal level I still do well on most games I play compared to the masses. Its best to stick to new concepts and games where everybody is a beginner at the same time as you. That can have some lasting fun. Chivalry was fun, for instance. Until all the wannabe pro-clanner ruin every match, because hey, I only play once every week.

Kind of reminds me when I played Smash Brothers when I was younger. We only played it casually and had a lot of fun. Then a friend got so serious at the game and got competitive, it was never fun again. I've grown to be unappreciative of skilled people in PvP games. I'd rather just play people that DON'T play that specific game all day/week/month long.

Why is that a "flaw"? That's a ridiculous notion.

The problem with pvp is that other players are in your game. Screw that.

If you're connecting to a random server its a forgone possibility that you will be facing people that either a.) Do little else but play the game all day b.) Devote every free moment/a large amount of their free time to playing the game. Of course this means they will have more experience in the game, so you can either give up all semblance of a life to play a small subset of games, or you can simply try to find a server with like-minded players or accept that you will be defeated and try to learn something from each defeat.

Good luck with that, lol.

Or.... just suck less. Difficulty settings are stupid in PvP because then you would have people who are good setting themselves on easy or whatever and being bullet sponges or whatever benefit lowering the difficulty would have. If you cant spend a lot of time playing a game, that's understandable. What should be understandable to you, however; is that your going to be sub-par. It shouldn't be reason to get upset or even annoyed. Everything in life takes practice and experience to excel at, not just videogames.
