I’ve been privy to some of the theories floating around as to why it seems like the preference system and the randomization factor are not random at all. One of those is that people are in parties and causing the odd man out to default to monster, game after game, despite being our fifth preferred option.
This is a problem. Out of five games last night, I was the monster for 4 of them, and it’s my dead last preferred class to play. I purchased the most expensive version of this game on pre-order and I feel completely f$%#ed over. I don’t even understand what I paid all the extra money for. A magma skin? Extra characters were not unlocked, so it wasn’t that. Access to some future DLC for free?
Plain and simple, everyone can see that the players that are satisfied with the game are the minority, and you guys don’t want to die a slow death like Titanfall is/will, so fix the most glaring issue with the game: allow the player to play the class they want to play, more often.
Have a separate queue for people who are ok queuing into premade groups and player who are not. If this issue isn’t fixed like yesterday, I feel like I through away $100. And you can bet your gilded ass that I will never purchase a game with TRS or 2K on the label again.
