Back when MK9 was at its prime I remember constantly debating with people about the CSZ matchup, anytime I got in to a debate with people all I would ever get is theory talk.

Xbox live has always been pretty awful when it comes to player attitudes and the classic "hatemail" scenarios that can come up pretty frequently. I'm not so sure that this system will benefit fighting game players and other competitive genres which are more than likely have the worst cases player conduct. Now this new system, which will be implemented next month, will punish you by revoking your ability to stream games on Xbox One and having their matchmaking privileges limited.

Sometimes the players have the power to make the seemingly impossible happen... over and over again.
