So, I go to thinking about this; if most of us don't have the time to be super competitive anyway, why not just sign up for one of the lame-core ladders and match on one of those? If there becomes a bigger draw for hardcore; great. We can do that. But in the meantime, why not just have a go at the softcore stuff? I mean, how different is it really? You get guns and unlimited bullets. It sucks more, but at least we can build on our teamwork skills.
