@frostyryan: You're absolutely right. The two styles of play aren't mutually exclusive. When I play alone I usually play competitive and take it seriously. When I'm with my friends, however, we play quick match or brawl and just have fun with it. People in quick play don't give a damn if you're following the meta or not, and if they do, why the hell are they playing quick play? All competitive games develop a meta, like you, I don't understand the negative mindset some people have around it.
