Why is MyM hated?

I do not understand why everyone hates valve's terrific new update, Meet your Match. 

 

It still has everyone's favorite pubs

 

The new balance changes are awesome especially for the spy and pyro.

 

COMPETITIVE! 

 

And a very needed revamp to the pubs we are continuing to enjoy.

 

What am I missing that is not to love?

I think everything theyve done is perfect, the people who are unhappy and still want their daily dose of quickplay cancer can play on skial. The only thing I would change is taking out random crits but we know that wont ever happen

Oh wow, there are people who like the update... thought i was going to get a ton of hate, thanks guys. Although i'd still like to hear from the people who truly have their reasons.

They should at least appreciate the fact that F2P's aren't allowed in competitive.

Lol, ain't that the truth.

You are right. Everything about the new "Me(a)et the Match" update is great ! But somehow people is still mad and sad about it. Competitive and deep balance changes is a huge thing.

When I first tried the update I thought it was bullshit! But when I actually got used to it, it turned out it was not that bad at all.

Well yeah, i think everyone did... Day 1 literally everyone was trying to get on and the servers just couldn't handle all that stress. Afterwords the servers were fixed the queue times dropped to instant, and it is a lot of fun!

The only thing I REALLY DON'T like is that they removed that you can search for a server for example defense vs attack, there you could see all the servers you could join and what map you came in.

Coming from a competitive TF2 player, casual mode is absolute shit, even with the few small changes they made. Competitive mode is generally fine, but the abandons need harsher penalties. 

 

The heavy vs pyro, weapons changes, items....meh, who cares.

Well with that kind of mindset people would just play 2fort or something and NOTHING ELSE.

I like this update because it forces you to get known with other maps which will become useful

Ok thank you, this is the exact reason why i created this thread, why does everyone dislike the new casual pub mode. They say it is awful but i never get a reason why. Could you please explain it to us so we can understand more?

Where the 9v9 option at? 9 Classes... Kinda makes sense

The option was grayed out in the beta of comp, I would believe that is coming soon. Prior i'd always main medic in 9v9 highlander. Good times.

I tried 6s pre-update and didn't care for it all too much, mainly due to the set meta, but now you can have heavies, spies, it is just an all around more fun experience.

This update is perfect.Competetive is the best thing. It will repair Tf2, we will get tons of players back. Casual is pub like just look: u can browser maps, players are same, one cares if u lose... Its almost same as pubs. If u rly like pubs u can choose pub like community servers. We got new maps, balances. Valve showed u that they actually listen to community (just check all the mess on day 1 they fixed every probs the following day). The only thing they should do is to let players to choose what map they want to play in the matchmaking.

1. Players just leave without slots getting refilled, so games become 12 on 6. 

2. Balancing ranks on both teams is flawed.

??? Both of those things have been fixed already, and regardless your rank doesn't even matter in pubs, just flavor. Valve said it themselves. "Levels are a cosmetic feature that show how long you've been playing." Besides, any game I've played always seems harder to pubstomp, making it a lot more enjoyable due to the fact the matchmaking system pits you between more skilled opponents more consistently. Generally the moment someone leaves the pub another takes his/her place. Making it almost always a 12v12.

They should've just focused on improving matchmaking instead of introducing casual.

 

Why do I sometimes get sent to EU or even Tokyo servers when I'm in the east US? 

When I solo queue, why aren't there anyone else higher than rank 1 on my team?

When I team queue, why aren't we facing teams of similar rank? 

 

They've failed to fix obvious things like these, since the Beta (really since Mann vs. Machine was released....). I think at any other software company people would've been sacked for a release like this.

Because it took away what I liked most, just joining a pub server instantly on whatever region I want, if the teams are stacked or too tryhard just leave and find another one instantly (or check the playerlist to see if there are some known stackers etc). And when i find a good server play on it for hours.

Most casual matches I played so far lasted ~5-10 minutes only and were rarely balanced. Oh and of course searching takes a few minutes and you can't pick the region that you want either.

And lets not talk about the first few days after the update when casual mode was even more broken.

 

There are only a few community servers left and if you count away all those with annoying ads and other popup messages even fewer remain. And of those very few most are stacked, have no votes enabled (sometimes no admin is present so cheaters ruin everything), also auto-balance forces you to play against your friends (which I hate).

 

I understand that not everyone has the same needs as I do but for me personally this update was terrible.
