“It’s either that or play a really non-optimized competitive game with terrible people…Would I rather be bored getting shot in my side by some rat with [Dead Silence], or would I rather win the majority of my games and cruise up in the rankings?” he said.

This is a problem that many players hope will be solved when Warzone 2’s Ranked playlist drops in Season 3, but many players have warned that balancing issues could quickly bog the mode down.

As for Modern Warfare 2, the first Ranked season comes to a close alongside Season 2, and TeeP’s effort to make it onto the Top 250 leaderboard will at least be acknowledged through the end-of-season rewards.

There’s still time for Warzone 2 to get it right, but for the time being, TeeP and many other streamers are sticking by their choice to shake things up.
