Look guys, the game is fun. Im happy you fixed the multiplayer connection to host bug. I can actually play the game again, super. But there’s an issue still, and it’s the fact that I cant play as the monster against my one friend who actually owns the game. With the game’s population (at least on PC) as low as it is I cant see why itd even be an issue at this point. The leaderboard integrity is almost a moot point now, Steam has this game tracked at under 500 players per day on at any given time. The population is low, and continues to be low, despite temporarily spiking for sales and such. Im not gonna go into how expensive this game is upfront (but my other friends would buy it if it wasnt still 60 bucks…) or how people somehow feel the dlc is unjustified or whatever. (I dont care personally) But at this point, why not just open up players in a party together being able to select the monster?
It’s just me and my ONE FRIEND. Even if we wanted to try and boost leaderboard stats (lol we work full time jobs already we dont have that kinda time) not only would nobody be impressed but we wouldnt gain anything out of it. I dont want to play with 3 bots just so one of us can be the monster in a custom game. There’s no fun in playing the AI. I dont even care if our human teammates are bad at the game, but theyre different. But for the love of God I just wanna kill my friend already. The entire pivotal role, the Monster, is a role we’re not able to experience and it’s depressing. The only way to play it is without each other in separate matches (kills the point of buying the game to play with him), or in a custom game with just the 2 of us. (my other friends would play but the game’s upfront cost is absurd considering the population and how long it’s been out)
Im sure this will get locked, and Im sure youve all heard this a million times… but a few more months of this and who knows how much harder it may become to fill a lobby. Even when we get into a game half the time we spend half a match with 2 bots and a 3rd solo guy and MAYBE we get a 4th and 5th to join. Other times were in a game with just the 2 of us… fighting 3 bots anyways. Would it REALLY kill you to throw us a bone at this point and give us more incentive to play? We try and play for a while but we get bummed out after an hour. We even try to solo queue at the same time and we’ve never gotten into the same game it’s impossible.
