    What follows is a Word/Excel document I created to explain my observations about getting to 10.49, I apologize for the small size but I think if you are interested clicking on the attachments will help. Also sorry it is so long, but a lot to cover...

    OK, how did this get posted on Twitter? Must be a copyright infringement! :)

    Thanks DARK! I am very much looking forward to dissecting and digesting this. I just don't have time right now, but I will definitely take a look when I do. Thanks!

    I just hit 10.49 last night so I quick checked my stats to see how they compare (didn't get the game until black friday (or around there) and play on xbox)
    It took me 155 hours and played 1029 games with only a 45.9% win ratio

    Thanks for offering DARK, I was able to save images of your post and zoom in on them.

    Very impressive analysis my friend. I know how much time it takes to put something together like this. Very well done!

    I absolutely agree with what I believe are you 100% accurate conclusions that basically this game was watered down and dumbed down so that everyone gets a trophy. The only caveat or disagreement I would have with you is about you. You are not an average or below average player. I feel 1000% confident that I can say matter of factly that you are an elite player. Why? Because I know what your preferred mode is, I know how you play it, and I consider myself an authority on that specifically. I KNOW, not think, but I KNOW that I was one of the best players in the world at Hardpoint Domination in TF1. I got inserted into a game of random players (good players and mostly Gen 10s, but not playing together or playing coordinated) against an entire really good clan of Gen 10s on the other side and my team won and I was the MVP. I know what Hardpoint takes and I've seen your numbers and I would say that you might even be better than me at Amped Hardpoint in TF2, so you are not average by any means my friend. In other modes, maybe, as am I, but in Hardpoint, we are elites my friend. We know how the game is to be played and we play the hell out of it that way.

    Very nice of you to say; just seems to me that AH is one of the modes where being strategic is more important and it suits my style and where I am in life. As I have said many times before the reflexes suck.

    Since I posted this I gave a lot of thought to my feelings and I still think this is a Beta version of the game, perhaps an upgraded version. Respawn has made the game more "vanilla" so it appeals to the "COD" type player. My caution for Respawn is look what has happened to COD; people are very unhappy with the game so why move in that direction.

    On an other front, I follow several YouTubers for TF2 and COD. Lately there has been a real drought of material being published and even on this forum there is a lot less chatter - why you might ask? Well my hypothesis is that folks have just gotten "bored" and have nothing left to offer, especially since it seems Respawn have stopped listening.

    Since finishing my Xbox I have gone on to both consoles in the past couple of days and frankly I feel "flat" when I play. When the game is over and I am MVP it is frustrating to see all those merits already posted and the new ones earned just going into the either - wasted! Oh yes I can continue to Regen my weapons and Titans but it is very slow because all those other merits don't apply. I lost interest in half and hour and quit.

    I am looking forward (with hope) to see what Respawn says tomorrow (March 23) about what is coming, more importantly what is coming this month. Sadly if it is not worthwhile I am gone just no point to the game as it is and without some meaningful enhancements it is just a waste of time.

    Let's hope for some good stuff, sooner rather than later!
