So I'm Gen 15.30. I played the first Titanfall game shortly after launch and I've played TF2 since shortly after launch. Now when I first stared playing TF2, I was good. I usually finished top 3 on my team and on the overall ranking after each match, I was dominant, and I usually won the games that I played. But as each DLC has come out and various changes to the game have occurred, I've gotten slightly worse. And it's just gotten worse and worse to the point where I'm playing like a Gen 1. I feel like my pilot loadouts (which I've bee using since Day 1) are failing me, I'm generally avoiding any and all enemy pilots and I rarely use my Titan. Now I have a theory that this could be because I've been playing a little too much Frontier Defence, by my overall game was slipping before the FD update came out.
So I have two questions:
Have I just lost my confidence in my ability to be a good player, or was I taking advantage of the early yet-to-be-nerfed exploits the game had at launch and therefore have regressed into what my skill level actually is? And what can I do to become good again?
P.S. Does playing on different data centres affect who you play against? I only ask this because I would suck on the St. Louis Datacenter but then do really well on the New York Datacenter (since my time zone falls in line with New York).
P.P.S. I've been sucking on New York latelely too.
