Currently trying to spade the Yak-141, and I’ve noticed that top-tier Air RB is just blowouts now. One team gets a minor advantage at the start and just steamrolls the other team. It’s not a fun experience for either team. It’s boring to wipe the floor with a team within 5 minutes, and its frustrating to have your entire team wiped in 5 minutes.
World of Warships has been having a similar problem recently, with a large number of players leaving, and making the team skill gap pretty large, making blowouts the de facto way games go. Their smaller gamemode, Ranked, is often touted as the better version of the game because the smaller teams let you have a bigger impact.
