The game YOU wanted? lol!!! A bit smug aren't we?
I don't think he did. I believe you failed to make one.
This game runs SO much better than it did in the early days.
As for all of the other additions, they should not affect your play in any way. The additions they've made (emotes, skins, etc) are only there if you WANT to use them. As an adult, you can choose to play simply or with all the bell's and whistles. I don't use any of that stuff, so why would people who DO want to use that stuff change the way I play?
