AI is insanely easy, 100% of the time it's a win. I would rather go against the 1500s and get a -1 ranking for losing than play against the dumb AI. And, let's say I get +100 if I win, wouldn't that make my day? Also, let's say he gets -50 if he loses, wouldn't that be serious feedback about rethinking his tactics? Last match I played was against a guy I don't remember the name of (that's an useful detail, isn't it?) and was absolutely great. We were both on the edge, carefully thinking all of our moves, while time was running away. At the start of the last round I was 2/6 stars and with 50 seconds left - regardless, I managed to win, 3 seconds ahead of the clock. It felt fucking awesome, I tell you. Don't even get me started on the examples, playing against a real opponent is twenty times more exciting and feels way more rewarding. You shouldn't play MP to win. You should play to have an unbelievable amount fun.
