Make a 10-20 hour mandatory playtime before u can play rank, or level 25.

Sure they can 'easily' be spoofed, but it's still better than nothing. Stop being hypocrite, they don't because they need these players, they're a big part of the pc community.

With this game having crossplay along with the new ramp up of cheaters on pc you will no doubt see a huge drop of players in the coming month's. One huge downside of the game being free is the lack of paywall for those that get banned do too a use of cheat menu free games have it worse for cheating.

The new wave of issues on all builds is just the cherry ontop of a cake that was delayed for years but still came out under cooked.

Mot too sure if this is just me or not but this write up seems way exaggerated. I haven't had many if any problems with this free game at all. I've played it quite abit 50-100 matches so far I'd say and it's run as smooth as butter for me.
Maybe I'm just lucky?
Could it be possibly the players internet connection?
Not giving excuses but just seems odd I've had no or few issues. Certainly no framerate drops that I'm aware of.
Currently playing it on the ps5.
