I'm kinda glad. It'll keep those D-bag from D2 out. You know, the ones that would "lololololololololololololololol you cant even damage me im such a l33t dueler". It forces you to either be there because you enjoy the game, or leave. I can dig it.
well you wouldnt even face those l33t duelers. since you suck your mmr would be low and you would be matched against equally bad duelers. problem solved. only difference is since there is no ladder people wont see just how much you suck.
