Good lord the fill teammates thing is strictly a menu design thing at this point. This is the worst it has ever been. I would say 80% of my solo q games are missing a teammate

Edit: I have played twelve games of duos in a row, ONE HAS HAD A TEAMMATE

ID: gr4mdgj

Which is strange, because I remember reading in the patch notes it would only allow up to 6 to be solo, so if it’s a network/match making issue that a lot of people are experiencing, it’s definitely more that 6 solo-ers per match. I thought I was just extremely unlucky.

I started a duos game earlier with only 38 people off drop

Hey guys, I have an idea! What if we had all 3 maps in rotation for pubs?

This might be really far out there, but I think it could work honestly!

ID: gr53z2a

I agree

I swear to god the terrible servers matter more than people think.

Sure, you see the lag, stuttering, slow motion gameplay. But you forget about the shitty bullet reg when you aren't seeing the extreme lag conditions.

Some games, I hit all my shots, it feels great. Others, I feel like I have to shoot way ahead of the model to hit them.

I'm a little disappointed they fixed Wattson's new event rare skin, Electric Blue. At least on my console it was a bright white with waving greyish-blue patterns, and now it's actually blue, with a light and dark blue scheme. The bright white was totally unique.

ID: gr4l6ul

It looked so clean. Feel sorry for anybody who bought it not knowing that it would get patched. I doubt they will, but I hope they get compensated.

so they knew how to fix the woosh sound but still can't fix footsteps/gunshot audio not working?

ID: gr4o1bs

Starting to think footstep audio is broken on purpose to level the playing field for players with zero awareness.

To everyone who has code:net issues that have resulted in being LOCKED OUT of the game:

EA has just opened a new thread on their forum, gathering information from players who are affected by the bug and cannot play the game. Please go there and add your details.


ID: gr4u65s

Also, don't act like a dickhead when you post there. Yelling at the people there, and calling them names, will not get your problem solved quicker.

I’m not gonna lie I’m really sick of playing nonranked and teammates leaving the second they go down even though we can pick them up. It’s ruining the game for me

i guess in a positive light i have been phenomenally productive lately since i absolutely have no interest in playing this LTM!

-bad ltms should not be forced

-add servers

-stop adding spamming ultimates on 2 or lesser minute cooldown with zero to little fight changing capacity

Still waiting for developers to even acknowledge the octane "end of stim" melee bug since Season 1. For those who don't know, once Octane starts the animation at the end of a stim where he discards the stim, he can't melee for almost 3 seconds. This has caused numerous deaths that otherwise would have been victories.

12 : Anonymous2021/03/16 18:28 ID: gr5ffch

Aside from the invisible enemies, invisible guns, teams not being filled, server connection issues etc., I'm interested in the possibility of there being an option to replenish ammo for care package weapons from the crafter for say 300+ crafting materials.

When does this fucking mode end so I can play the game again???

14 : Anonymous2021/03/16 18:22 ID: gr5en04

Fix the fucking missing teammates. No one gives a shit about skin bugs wtf.

Chat is disabled in lobby whyy????

ID: gr4mp3i

It was not always this way. I don't know what changed, but I want lobby chat back too, friend 🙁

16 : Anonymous2021/03/16 14:57 ID: gr4mxdx

The amount of cheaters or people who crash the lobby's in Master en Pred lobby's is insane. It's really unplayable at the moment.

17 : Anonymous2021/03/17 00:02 ID: gr6lp7k

Can't get past the loading screen for 30 minutes already. Fun!

18 : Anonymous2021/03/16 13:44 ID: gr4dq9a

anyone else feels like matchmaking got extremely sweaty with the introduction of the current ltm? constant 3stack predators in pubs. felt way better during locked and loaded

ID: gr4i7b3

Getting closer to the end of the ranked split, lots of people have probably hit their ranked goal/celling and just playing pubs instead.

I can’t believe how many times I’ve landed on KC this go around where there’s literally 1 gun in an entire building or area. Or how many containers I’ve opened that just have a frag grenade and maybe a white knockdown shield.

How did they manage to make the loot pool WORSE than it used to be?

ID: gr4ncxw

The trick is that the loot is absolutely abysmal everywhere in KC except for Crash Site and Spotted Lakes.

There's also that one building above Capacitor, but that's not enough for an entire team.

ID: gr4lpxz

I feel this so much. For me it’s the three bins right at the end of airbases landing strip. Love landing there as my first drop, but no weapons or shields in three bins together is just ridiculous, may as well just jump straight off the edge and start again.

To those of you who have thousands of kills on your main and rarely use other characters... Don't you get bored? And how do you deal with your main getting picked before you? (serious Q)

21 : Anonymous2021/03/16 23:59 ID: gr6lbvh

Anyone on PC NA having trouble getting past the loading screen? I got booted out of a game with “Unable to get token from Origin” and now trying to get back all I get is the loading icon.

Have tried flushing DNS cache, verifying game files, full reboot... on Steam

22 : Anonymous2021/03/16 16:16 ID: gr4xgnd

Please end the LTM early

23 : Anonymous2021/03/16 12:04 ID: gr43mie

This ltm is not fun and I can't wait for it to go away.

Same.. I hate it soo much that I solo queued ranked to diamond

When I thought of Ring Flares and Heat Shields I assumed that was an attempt to draw parties away from congregating too closely so then you can have more squad v squad skirmishes rather than constant third, fourth, fifth partied ones.

Heat Shields are only useful for backtracking to get more loot, i.e. they have had a negative impact - they have fueled people's "Loot Goblin" tendencies too much and slowed down matches as a result. Speaking of loot though, it would make sense to let Lifeline have multiple survival slots so she can hold 2 heat shields AND a mobile respawn beacon.

I think you need a better way to separate congregating parties and a better way to funnel parties too: would it not be possible to introduce strong weather effects into the game, even if localised and temporary. Things like strong snow storms in Worlds Edge, strong dust storms in Kings Canyon, strong electricity storms in Olympus? That way you cut off lines of sight and third parties will stay away.

At the moment, that awful feeling that Heat Shields were to remedy - "dying from the ring" - is still there.

Are you freaking serious we have ring flares on Olympus now?!? Cmon devs, no one wants ring flares lmao

Servers down.

Love having teammates that drop you into a hotzone in ranked and then immediately fucking run away on their lonesome after you down 2 people

ID: gr4nybo

I've had randoms who give up godspot just for thirsting an enemy and immediately get shot by 2-3 teams enemies. Then they blame me for not dying with them

28 : Anonymous2021/03/16 15:52 ID: gr4u7r9

The locked and loaded loot pool should be standard for all matches.

Get those pathetic common items out of this game, please! They do not belong here anymore.

29 : Anonymous2021/03/16 16:11 ID: gr4wpva

Anybody else feel like EOMM is so evident since either 8.1 or the more recent patch?

My games now are: get teamed with complete bots > die early because of this for like 5-8 games > get thrown a bot lobby so you cruise to 1st > immediately get punished for winning and thrown back to harder lobbies.

30 : Anonymous2021/03/16 12:48 ID: gr47qvk

Playing on ps4 and my X button will straight up not work in game. Can't drop any loot I pick up, can't swap shit either. Anything the X button usually does, now it does not. Only since most recent patch yesterday. I am at a total loss, anybody else experiencing this??

31 : Anonymous2021/03/16 17:23 ID: gr56muo

I’ve seen a lot of weird instances of two different voice lines playing simultaneously. Happens like half the time with Maggie during the champion introduction screen, but I’ve also seen it happen with random character chatter. Not really a glaring issue but I’m surprised it still happens after the recent patch.

32 : Anonymous2021/03/16 17:35 ID: gr588dc

Can we get a rework on Loba's tactical? Cuz it's seem like it will never get fixed.

33 : Anonymous2021/03/16 17:54 ID: gr5au4k

cant chat in the home screen, constantly getting put into matches ALONE, they try to fix some bugs and it screws up other parts

im really tired of trying to play this game, also not to mention the code:net and when i try to reconnect i get in a loop and get code:leaf and all of a sudden im out of the game with my friends

Missing Teammates in casual playlist 9/10 times since the broken update 7 days ago. Thanks for all the microtransactions though...

"Fill teammates" option is not working.

35 : Anonymous2021/03/16 19:50 ID: gr5qceh

I'd like to hear one reason why we had to play KC for the whole time and now you suddenly give us Olympus on a timer while still having those stupid ring flares. Why not rotate the maps from the beginning?

36 : Anonymous2021/03/16 20:41 ID: gr5x0ib

Crossplay voice chat is not working in the lobby. Fix it.

I have played a fairly large amount of this game since day 1. 10000+ kills, over 2000 wins. Why tf does the matchmaking put me with level 13 switch players?!?! How is this fai

for me OR them??

I literally can not carry people like this. They are getting zero experience and not getting better at the game. We either loot all game and die because I cant wield 3 guns at the same time to fight a whole team OR we drop hot and I am playing solo within seconds of hitting the ground. I played for 2 hours today and my teammates managed a grand total of 3 kills in about 20 games.

Switch players need their own lobbies. There needs to be a level based matchmaking system, even in pubs, because this is straight up not fun anymore.

Ring takeover is pretty lame. So i guess I'll just stick with ranked in the meantime.
