ChrisK: And the challenge is conversely great when you're at the bottom. To be honest, I think the entire MM argument might have more merit if you had higher-Tier players complaining that battles against lower-Tier opponents wasn't challenging, but until now we haven't heard anything like that, which can lead to the assumptions by many players (which I have seen on here) that there are just a lot of whiny low-Tier players complaining because they're n00bz. Personally, I disagree - I think the higher-Tier players are still getting the challenge, so there's something missing in the mid-Tiers we should tweak to make it less frustrating. We're still researching exactly what and how to do that so that it doesn't break the game for the players who are fine with it the way it is now.
