Same as @Grybzt, this is why I keep playing. No other game (or genre, apparently, I'm new to AFPS) has made me feel ok with being stomped. Learning the game is 85% of the fun for me, the rest is the occasional super satisfying sound of an accidental full rocket hit.
So far I absolutely love the MM system (I haven't even finished my 10 duels, due to time constraints), even though I'm in way above my head dueling, it's the most fun part of the game.
Anyway if you're EU based and you want we can do some practice duels.
