Why do people even bother playing multiplayer games that aren't scaled to newbs?

MMORPGs: A new level 1 player gets slayed right at the spawn point by a level 80.

Card games: Have s***** hands? Opponent destroys you with RNGESUS on their side and have better hands and a better deck.

FPS: Level 80 opponent has a better gun collection, you only have a secondary gun. Opponent pulls out 50000000 rockets and repeats when you spawn. You lose.

Smartphone/Pay to win games: Whoever spent the most money automatically wins!!

This is why I stick to games such as CS, Civ V, and Starcraft 2 where everyone starts off at the same level each game.

You sound like you're making excuses for not having time/ patience to understand the mechanics for individual games.

...It doesn't always work like that.

Just because you think it is right, it doesn't make it right for everyone. Even you.
You're being trolled only if you let them.

Sounds like the 3 people above me play those games and are offended that OP is calling out their lack of skill that they compensate for by having more unlocks or having paid more.

Every MMO I played had a big old, early game leveling map where you couldn't pvp. What MMORPG you see where lvl 1's are getting attack by max characters?

If its mostly skill-based then you can just improve yourself. After all the person who is killing you went down the same path.

All those things I listed gives a player with little to no skill an upper hand against skilled opponents.
