I am not saying the player base is too small.
The ratio of hunters to monsters is almost 4 to 1 which is even. It really depends on when and how frequently the monsters and hunters play. There may be times of day where matchmaking times are longer due to a mismatch in player numbers, but you can’t tell that from the rank data.
The issue I was referring to was that there are more high ranking silver monsters than Silver ranking hunter teams and fewer bronze ranking monsters than bronze ranking hunter teams. More players might not fix this issue, it would probably make it worse!
That being said, I would certainly like to see the PC player base increase, and if you check the steam stats you will see that the 30 day average has gone up 2.5% compared to the last full month. That is the first long term player base increase since launch! I would say that is a step in the right direction and is directly due to TRS’s continued work on the game: http://steamcharts.com/app/273350. I hope that more players come back to enjoy the changes in the game, and the new hunters!
