I have slowed my playing time down now and today I can’t actually be bothered to start the game as it just sucks to be sitting there doing nothing. (on PC)
I have to log into an American location just to get a (LAGGY) game, fun factor zero. I am sick of the hour PLUS long wait times as a solo player on the Australian servers/location and I hope instead of trying to focus our attention elsewhere (new characters, new game modes etc) something does indeed get done about the terrible match-making system that has turned the game from BATTLEBORN to BATTLEYAWN.
I think the Australian PC community is big enough in that we have enough of the population to get pvp games going non-stop. Here is some research I have done out of interest in this topic:
I asked 3 EB games stores in my location how many units did you sell of Battleborn PC edition (roughly) and the answer was not ten or so but just under 1 hundred units between them and that’s just in my location alone. (and only EB games stores)
Also just now I checked https://steamdb.info/graph/ and got these figures for Battleborn, with 2,426 (currently playing the game) 2,770 (24 hour peak) 12,101 (Peak players) so there is enough people playing (But again, location/region issues will tear these numbers down considerably and without a way to determine WHERE these people playing are in what region it’s anyone’s guess.)
The conclusion of my research is that the match making system for PC is broken (in all regions from what I can tell) and indeed as ZombiMasher stated the small Aussie contingent will likely soon become the no Aussie contingent, not because the game is bad, far from it but the internal mechanics of a bad match making system has let the player base down and from the regions I have played, this match making system is really annoying people across all regions.
