Currently I can’t say I’m enjoying Hunt 2.0, solely because of the new matchmaking.
Look at it this way: When a game enters Early Access and people post negative reviews, others start defending the game by saying “But it’s EA! You can’t downvote a game because of bad optimization or balance because the game’s not finished yet!”.
That’s a laughable excuse. If developers put a game in EA it’s because they want feedback. So there it is; honest reviews of the game you are currently selling.
The reason I’m using EA as an example is because it’s how I feel about the new matchmaking and opinion and reviews should be based on its current state, not how it will be when it’s improved.
I can’t say if the new Hunt is balanced, I can’t say which characters are now better because I simply can’t get into a match. Judging my opinion on my experience means I absolutely dislike the patch so far.
So please, can we maybe get some confirmation that the new matchmaking is bugged or something? Looking for players as a Hunter takes 15 minutes. I thought there weren’t enough Monsters, but looking for players as the Monster takes almost as long as well.
That can’t possibly be normal.
@paulymath I think you guys did a really good job on making sure people aren’t stuck with AFK players, but what about people immediately leaving if they don’t get their preferred role?
Let’s face it, too many people want to play Jack at the moment.
There’s currently nothing stopping the guy who “PREFERS ASSAULT” from quickly snatching the Trapper spot because he “happened to click faster”.
A first come first serve basis doesn’t seem appropiate.
And as far as playing with bots goes, as annoying as having a bot in your team may be, it’s still better than instantly kicking everyone out of the lobby as soon as 1 guy leaves at the character select screen.
