I agree with you 200%.
They have made these assumptions about medals and hourly with nothing to back it up other than they just suck at getting pings.
The sample size is non-relevant to how many drivers are in the market. They took a pole of 15 drivers in a market of 60,000 drivers. Sorry, not only is their assumption beyond ignorant, their data to back up their alleged findings is a joke. 15 drivers does not make a scientific pole.
We all know you have to be in the right spot at the right time. Space yourself away from everyone.
It's the same thing where everyone thinks they are all great drivers. "I'm a 4.6 but that BS." Is it now. Then why are people 4.7, 4.8,4.9. I'm even tired of reading how great everyone is at driving and it's everyone else's fault they're a 4.6. Let's face it, you people need a dose of reality. If you're being deactivated it's because you suck. There's nothing else to state. Too many driver are above 4.9. They drive the same people you drive. Don't need to hear BS how it's everybody else. You just suck at the job.
Unfortunately, there are so many egos on here people just can't admit they don't know how to do the job.
It's not just turning on and driving around.
I call BS too on the pings. I haven't been having any issues. I think I'm on silver. Not sure. I don't try to medal. I just make what I want to make then call it day.
I didn't post in that thread because it was just a bunch of stupid and I didn't have the patience or for that matter wanted to waste my time reading all that stupid.
