Good thread and video. I have made similar points on these forums and youtube comment section. Bungie doesn't care. They know streamers and youtubers are the advertisers for their game and are doing whatever it takes to please them, even if it pushes other players away. Top teir players wanted SBMM to go away for one reason only, they wanted to pubstomp in 99% of their matches. All the arguments against it were just a bunch of garbage. I always laugh at the "not wanting to have to sweat in every match" argument. I see luna's or not forgottens in every match. I guess these good players didn't get the memo about wanting to use non meta weapons. What Bungie could have done is create a playlist with SBMM, similar to what is used for Iron Banner. That way, at least average players had the option whether or not they wanted to get their teeth kicked in every other match. And NO competitive isn't the solution for casual players. Competitive matchmaking could possibly be worse than quickplay matchmaking.
Thank you and agree completely. All these people that like to say go play Comp just ignore or can't figure out that 1) it's completely different game modes 2) it's not skill based matchmaking, it's rank based (and poorly) and 3) no playlist exists in the game for regular everyday players. The only way Bungie will address it is enough people speaking up. Unfortunately the people who want to keep pub stomping have loud voices and lots of followers to echo their fake claims.
