Contrast that with 8.5 combo and now you are trying to pick on the 4.0 guy and avoid the 4.5 player.
Basically this is like if you swapped out two intermediate tennis players (3.5, reasonably athletic but started playing tennis at 30) and substituted them with two advanced players (4.5, current 40 year old who played division 2 college).
Introducing that much skill difference changes the game a lot.
Makes sense. Sorry I just have a horrible grasp on levels haha!
Thanks for the description!
