That is so hard to grasp for you. Jesus
I'm telling you they can tell the things that are off, AND THEY DIDN'T LET THAT SPOIL THERE FUN BECAUSE THE GAME WAS STILL IN A DECENT CONDITION FOR THEM TO ENJOY.
He's right though. Some of MCC's greatest flaws such as being DDoS'd only really happen frequently at the high levels in ranked playlists.
Bad players generally care less about bugs and also tend to experience less of them. A bad player isn't going to encounter getting his internet disabled 10 times a day because he's not playing at a high enough level to encounter the scumbags still cheating to win in ranked playlists. A player who sticks to social isn't going to care much about 50s matching 30s in ranked playlists.
Sprint is another example. In a setting where the vast majority of the players are incompetent sprint isn't that bad because all they do is sprint in straight lines with an AR.
In such a setting the argument could be made that sprint is ok and that it increases the speed of combat. Those players probably enjoy sprint because at their level they don't really experience its cancerous effect on gameplay. That doesn't mean sprint is ok. Some players will find sprint a good thing, others such as myself think it makes the game unplayable.
At a higher level where the majority of the players are very competent though it's the complete opposite. In that setting sprint turns the game into an incredibly frustrating game of cat and mouse. Everyone just sprints away when they're about to die and you can't chase them because they're smart enough to sprint to their teammates and you'd have to give up your power position if you have one and you'll most likely just die.
Instead of increasing the speed of combat it actually slows it down and makes it incredibly frustrating for everyone.
There is a reason why literally nobody who has a rank 50 in Halo 3 or MCC likes sprint.
A bad player experiences the game in a totally different way than a great player. That's why many players would consider MCC playable in its current state while others find it unplayable.
