Nope. Everyone is either SL, Assault, or Commander. Competitive play seeks to take advantages of the gameplay as much as possible.

Having playing with many of these guys before, they're deadly. Great shots, they know the maps like their living rooms. At range, they nail you in a heartbeat. That said, I'd love to see how competitive play evolves once Classic makes it into the regular game.

EDIT: Listening to John Gibson now in the stream... you guys have done a great job listening to the community. After hearing the Mass Effect 3 debacle, my god I am grateful that community input matters here.

RO2 really isn't a competitive game.

These players, some of them have farmed bots so they have a STATISTICAL, ARTIFICIAL advantage over other players.

How is that competitive?

Combine that with no latency compensation, and since I'm assuming this is a U.S. server the euro team is at a disadvantage.

Finished mid sentence . Probably turned off the stream during the delay, before we had caught up.

Anyway was good to hear the back and forth with Ramm and the others.

I can only vouch for my own, team, but we have not farmed bots at all. And you are obviously unaware of how the competitive scene works. Even if someone did farm bots, weapon levels, ranks, everything is equal. Everyone's weapons are the same level, 0, and everything else is even in that aspect. Everyone is on the same playing field. Regarding the euros having high ping, we are going to have to deal with the same thing next week, as the second half of the match will be on an EU server. Get your facts straight.

Wouldnt it be better to play both match on a Russian Server ? So both teams have High pin g during both match ?!
