First to 5? Best of 9?
People do sets like that to make it like a tournament setting. I know everyone doesn't want to be a tournament player, but for those who do. Sets have rules like
Winner must stay same character.
Or in mk/injustice case. Loser might also get to pick stage.
Some people can out perform in a tournament setting, than in a friendly setting.
This happens to me sometimes, I'm will to try harder in a set than just playing friendlies because sets are seen as serious business.
Don't see why people can't just play multiple sets though
Fair enough, but I always learn more from playing a competitive endless set then a quick FT5. Every match I play, I try my best to win. Whether it's a FT5 or endless, I'm always on point simply because that's the only way I know how to play.
I understand the simulated tournament experience but I still hate playing FT5. I don't find enjoyment in that. Honestly, I feel that FT5 is best suited for offline play, not against randoms online. All of the people on my friend list enjoy playing endless. That's how I like it.
