I understand that in a competitve game losses are inevitable. I know that. Losing is always a possibility in a game.

but jesus fucking christ, when the losses start mounting. Self-loathing doesn't even begin to describe it. Losses are guaranteed but victories never are despite how hard it feels like I'm trying and all I want is a sign I'm progressing and doing better.

In competitive gaming there is always a sort of Conservation of Fun principle: one side's rewarding victory is often the other side's source of frustration. That's why it's always best to match people with similar skill levels, so that they can each give and take each other's fun in harmonious balance.

That's only a problem because the morons in the games industry are retarded control fetishists that can't just let people play with their toys the way they want.

The dichotomy between players and hackers is false. Inventing anti-cheat software and turning it into root-kits that infect your OS like a type of malware was also retarded.

The only thing they had to do was sort player in to groups with similar play-behavior.
For example sorting people according to skill-level and making different servers for newbie, intermediate, enthusiast and superhuman skill, would have fixed the problem. The sorting could be done via server-site player metrics. All the "cheaters" would be sorted into the superhuman skill corner where they would bother nobody with their bot-competition.
