I have been a hardcore fan of this game and have put in 100's of hours and dollars into it and I myself have been having a hard time enjoying the game lately for the same reasons above. The leavers and AFK'ers are killing this game for me. The lack of an actual match making system is a huge problem as well. There also seems to be more technical issues since the last update. I have had multiple matches where I get stuck on the map several times per match. Needless to say it usually leads to me dying which then skews my stats. How can we be keeping stats when the game is still messing up like this? The stats need to be wiped once this game goes live because I feel its BS to have these lame deaths count against me.
I'll still be playing IC, but not like I was before. I used to play 20-30 matches a night. Lately its been more like 5. Fix this Turbine or I and people like me will go elsewhere.
