Cool story bro but what it has to do with the topic? Playing the game is optional but when there is something wrong with the game the devs answer should not be to make people quit but to fix the problem.
No one is saying that there is a problem with RNG, that's the nature of the game. But when you say that GoW is chess it makes me laugh. You can get screwed by RNG in any PVP and with abundance with Mab teams it's likely that you will get sooner or later. And in chess there is no situation where you play game without queen because you bought 2000 chess boxes and none of them had queen inside it.
But this is all beside the point. No one is complaining about RNG or need to adjsut to the meta or struggling when you lack stats/units. But in my opinion if all things are equal and both teams play on the same level one should not be rewarded with a win just because they have started playing a year earlier.
Just think of Champions League in Soccer where Real Madrid is scoring a draw against a team from a newly formed country but it gets the cup anyway because the other team was created 50 years later.
