Short story time: I have found myself on teams that I was no where good enough to be on. If you could do anything to gain an advantage you did it. So did almost everyone else. It was frustrating.
Now I play witb the intent to have fun. If I lose or do not do my share no one cares mostly starting with me. I worry about my conduct and not anyone elses. Its a lot more fun
