I always found that you never get your first choice on the first time you queue up for a match. You will mostly get trapper for the next round or they are premade team practicing cuz there is a tournament on right now.
I never laugh a monster players who didn’t want to monster at the first place nor do I think I am or my team is elite to be smug.
On each of the 4 occassions, at start of the following round (I actually played and suffered through all these games), I was compelled to remain the monster. At which point I would re-queue, get stuck with monster, play, die, get stuck with monster again.
The matchmaking system is (pardon my french) being extra shitty today.
… leading me to conclude that perhaps the player base is shrinking; off-peak hours notwithstanding.
Yea I understand, that must be frustrating. Hopefully it was just a bad day for that and hope for better days to come. There isn’t much advice that can be given to help this situation.
I can commend you for being a trooper during that situation.
I’m not having these problems. I have so many friends playing I can’t choose who I want to party with half the time on my ps4. I find matches easy throughout the day. Sometimes its rough to get the spot you want but after a game or two I always get it.
That’s 100% true, it’s boring. It seems like the developpers are concentrating all their ressources to listen crybabies about buff/nerf and to do micro patches instead of fixing the real problems. I mean, honestly, BEFORE the 1st big patch (that added the tier 4 hunters/monster) the game had minor bugs but it was really playable and enjoyable :
no major performance issues
no gameplay bug
no matchmaking bug
Since the last updates (big patch + micro patches), here is what i encounter all the time (i’m playing trapper/kraken) :
Kraken flight bug
Kraken Jump bug
Kraken wall bug
Kraken feeding bug
Hunter gameplay aiming bug
Performances are crap, it looks like it runs at 20 fps all the time
Lags (even with full conection bars)
Matchmaking bug when in team
Honestly TRS, how do you want that we continue to play and enjoy such a bug mess ? It’s really the time to fix everything ! Remove all the patches and at least, we will get a decent gameplay experience, even if we don’t have tier 4 hunters/monster… It’s almost unplayable and it becomes worst at every micropatch you release.
Stop to listen the community about balance fixes and fix the bugs FIRST !
Just because you are put into a lobby as monster doesn’t give ANY indication on the community. You could have been matched with pre-made teams of 4 (or 2 teams of 2), where none of them can be monster. So since this is a 5 person game… that leaves… hmm… I had it…
Solo queueing can often result in the solo role (monster), even with a billion people playing the game.
Who’s defending the state of the game? He says getting placed as monster is proof of a low # community and I’m providing examples of how it’s the same if it was a high # of players ingame. Never defended it but if assuming people are delusional on forums makes you feel better and the need to post about it, I’d rather talk to the delusional person.
