I often think about how Halo 2 got ranked vs casual splits and the ranking ladder basically spot on almost two decades ago when online FPSs were still somewhat novel. And yet here we are with a god damned grind fest in the year of our lord 2021. In a perfect world Timmy gets to Diamond basically immediately after a few games of stomping everyone Plat and below but instead he had to sit there dropping 10+ kill games for hours and hours.

But those engagement metrics tho.

ID: gsb37a0

Yeah, Halo 2 basically had it figured out, or at least 95%.

Joke's on them though because they didn't realize that making an amazing game and selling it for $50 isn't nearly as profitable as making your game free and filling it with purposely addictive matchmaking and microtransactions.

It's really amazing how fast they'll fix ANYTHING that could hinder people giving them money, but the no-team bug is just here to stay going on 3 weeks now

ID: gsfflno

and this sub will say but but but that's EA. Sorry no that is Respawn!

ID: gsfp7dz

Anything good that happens to the game is Respawn, anything bad that happens to the game is EA. My brain is very large.

Started playing last month and goddamn if this game doesn't have server issues every other day... Jesus Christ.

It's impressive that a game of this size has this big of an ongoing problem.

Do 90% of characters suddenly have a "Silent footsteps" passive or what the fuck is going on?

Totally fed up of dropping, looking ALL around me for other teams and seeing NO trails near me, only to land and suddenly loads of enemies, where did they come from????

Game deciding to render a few dozen more fucking trees instead of the 3 squads dropping in your ass.

I always thought that I was just really bad at spotting other teams

happens to me all the time. this game is a monument of bugs at the moment

I don’t have a problem with trash players. My problem is with trash players who cannot comprehend themselves getting carried and purposefully stim + jack all my loot. I’m seriously not one of these “it’s always my loot if I killed them” people, but if I’m clearly carrying and you steal items that would help me like some fucking ammo and heals, it pisses me off

9 : Anonymous2021/03/26 16:15 ID: gsb12j6

Please fix your servers ffs

Remember when they actually made new recolors? Last new one released in July lmfao. I'm sure I could open the textures in Photoshop, play with the hue slider, and crank out at least 6 recolors per hour.

I'm sure someone in the marketing department realized that people are less likely to pay $18 on an event skin if they already have a cool recolor so we're in a year of recolor purgatory to atone for our sins of ignoring event skins

11 : Anonymous2021/03/28 01:55 ID: gsje0ee

Anybody else just insanely inconsistent at this game? Earlier today I won three games in a row with Lifeline and was kill leader each game. Next ten games after that I averaged about 130 damage and got no kills. I love this game but I hate the fact that I’m not consistently good at it

ID: gsjytno

It's not you. Matchmaking is rigged

12 : Anonymous2021/03/26 14:06 ID: gsajpcf

While the matchmaking is an absolute dumpster fire, what's punishing me more over the last couple of weeks is the lack of audio.

There's the Rev jump pad gangs, the silent Horizons, but even just standard fights where one or more people come casually sprinting up behind me.

This should be one of their highest priorities. They should even have temporary measures in place until they permanently sort it out - such as increasing jump pad and lift sounds to a stupidly high level, disable teammate footstep audio, reduce ambient noise clutter.

Stop spending money in this game unless the devs deploy a 'HEALTH' operation for this game.

14 : Anonymous2021/03/26 12:07 ID: gsa6a7t

Fix. The. Servers.

ID: gsalm1l

Had to eventually switch to Iowa servers last night bc every single east coast server just kept endlessly saying 'matchmaking....starting server....matchmaking' I tried playing hours apart too, so this was going on all afternoon/evening yesterday.

I can’t even play, the game is to broken it won’t start

i’m loving the no audio on footsteps. really changes up the game. Cunts

I just want to be in the head of someone who rushes off on their own to take on a squad of 3.

I just want to be in there for 10 seconds to understand what their brain is telling them.

18 : Anonymous2021/03/26 23:01 ID: gscnz2r

Can t play pubs anymore as it's infested by 3 stack pred/master's who spam Scout and Triple take like it's their last chance to qualify for ALGS.

Make a Freelance playlist like in destiny where people who opt in cannot play against 3 stack shitters

ID: gscxo3e

I'd love to see a Trios playlist that doesn't allow premade squads. COD Black Ops 1 used to have this, called “Mercenary TDM” that excluded parties. This was amazing because, I'm sure I'm not alone here, spawning into a lobby getting decimated by a full squad off rip was NOT fun. Jumping into and hearing, "ENEMY GUNSHIP INBOUND!" or “Enemy K-9 units coming in!” was not fun, haha.

19 : Anonymous2021/03/26 13:39 ID: gsagcxl

Why are Solo players matched vs Premades in non ranked play? Shouldn't premades have their own lobbies playing vs other premade teams? Wouldn't that fix a lot of the "SBMM" problems?

ID: gsahr50

Yeah, it would. I guess kids that stack pubs all day long would fill their diapers about having to wait an extra 20 seconds for a match

ID: gsb59ae

Would rather have longer que times with better quality of games in terms of matchmaking.

20 : Anonymous2021/03/28 06:10 ID: gsk2f9d

Either make solos or fix duos. Holy shit.

Anyone burned out like hell lately? I've been playing since season 0, always hit diamond in both splits. But now, I dunno, I can't force myself to play one game. And even if I do I am surely not enjoying it. Even when I win.

23 : Anonymous2021/03/26 14:56 ID: gsaqefr

Why are all my randoms on kings canyon obsessed with rushing into containment for a fight, it's third party central and you basically throw away any high ground advantage you had by going there

24 : Anonymous2021/03/28 01:04 ID: gsj6rvi

Nerf the fucking spitfire. It's literally a drop-in replacement for the mastiff after they nerfed it. Stupid.

25 : Anonymous2021/03/28 17:43 ID: gslly5n

Apologies if this is a known issue on this sub but has anyone else had problems with getting a squad filled on normal matches? I am positive I have auto fill on because I don’t have anyone to party up with yet I always get put into matches solo. It’s just frustrating. I’ve being playing since launch and have never experienced this.

26 : Anonymous2021/03/26 18:50 ID: gsbm2kq

Horizon is this season's swiss cheese hitbox Pathfinder. Her positioning ability is ridiculous.

27 : Anonymous2021/03/26 17:33 ID: gsbbmvb

I thought Respawn's main argument for not adding solos was that it would ruin the team play aspect? But now with everyone disabling autofill I rarely get team mates. So like? You guys screwed over all the players who aren't premade just because you don't want to add an actual solos queue? How about instead of adding these buggy ass annoying LTMs that forcefully replace regular mode constantly, you actually use your brain cells and just add quality of life modes after over 2 years of lacking them.

ID: gsbcqmv

I don’t understand why they don’t add solos. There are a lot of people who want solos but don’t add it. For the people who want to play solos they can play but for the people who don’t like solos they don’t have to play it

ID: gsbd0lw

I get single even when i fill team mates and it really sucks when you go alone in Ranked!

Apex should be banned, This game is more addictive than cocaine.

She's already pretty weak.

31 : Anonymous2021/03/26 18:36 ID: gsbk00x

Just curious, but anyone else here pretty much NEVER die in face to face gunfights, but instead you die from a 3rd party coming in from behind and catching you off guard. Ugh lol

It's part of the game, but man it's frustrating to win every gunfight only to get killed by a team you didn't know was there. I guess I gotta work on my positioning.

32 : Anonymous2021/03/28 07:24 ID: gsk7dc3

Just had a plat 4 octane call me shit because I refused to get his banner on the other side of the map. The guy went solo from the start and landed at the opposite side of the map lol. Like we are all in plat, we are all shit. If you are not a good team mate, I will simply not help you

33 : Anonymous2021/03/28 16:26 ID: gslbu5g

Now I know why everyone is dropping the Estates. Had my first ever "streamer" game. Vibing with a Path and a LL. DESTROYING that lobby (silver, I know, I am trash, nothing spectacular). But man, for the first time since S1, I had a 2 teammates who were better than me, not calling me trash, useless, and I was doing OK. We weren´t left the Estates until a "You are the champions" message popped up. Oh boy, such a good game. Now, back into a sewer and a reality.

Even the Firing Range lags. Lol, what a game.

ID: gscvaon

I love when I go into the firing range and there are other people s holo sprays just in frobt of the dummy so you can't see it.

Why is this a thing?

36 : Anonymous2021/03/27 02:14 ID: gsde9gy

I'm just starting to accept that this game is really only fun with friends you can squad up with. Solo queueing is really just fucking miserable. Too bad all my friends have lives these days lol
