This was a question asked to me today. I feel it deserves a long answer:
Most of us has been playing s4 league for a long time (2010 for me). We have seen things come and go and terrible things happen and good things happen. The community in it's whole is, for a lack of a better descriptor, "Dirt". And not everyone is happy with the games current situation. But I have learned to not worry about those things. I was competitive for a while, but I never let that get in the way of being friendly. When my team is losing because of a new player, I never Press Y because how would they learn. Sure the goal is to win, but if you cannot enjoy what you're doing in the first place, why are you trying to win? You get nothing for it honestly. It's just a number in a line of code on someone's server. It's about you :)! Go out there and do what you feel makes you enjoy the game. It's why no matter how garbage people say my tactics are (even though they work rather well), I don't change because it's how I enjoy the game. I have people I do call friends in a general sense and they even are nice enough to tolerate my NA lag. Make the game what you want to enjoy. No Unlimited? Make one! Let's all play together and laugh at things that are funny. So what if we lose, so what if we win. It's ok to be competitive, but don't lose your cool when you lose. It's a game... enjoy yourself! I am willing to be in a room with any player from any place so long as we all are legit. If you are new, I will teach you about my tactics ("Shields don't work against Cannonades"). If you are a long time player like me and you blow me up, I can assure you I'm chuckling and saying that's nice. Even when you are doing something unsportsmanlike I tend to still have a good time.
Let's improve the community by extending our hands to new players and befriending other veterans. Go out there with the full intent of having fun and help each other bring more love in the community.
