I for the first time since i got the game shortly after release backed out of a match cause i wanted to practice online with the character I WANTED TO PLAY AS. And the game tells me I cannot play another match other people??? this makes no sense…
What if a friend gets online and says hey lets party out while im in a match… i cannot just backout and play with them?? Then when you back out your forced to just sit there and do nothing?? What if you decided you dont like the mode and want to try something else? then the team that stayed in the match doesn’t even get another player?
what if you start a match, and then have to leave soon after, cause the matches do take a long time… the team is forced to be missing a player??
Also, if you do decided to go into the match it doesn’t even allow you to pick a character that is left to select from???
Im sorry, this whole thing is rubbing me the wrong way… especially after playing Overwatch, which allowed multiple people to have the same character, match making is much faster, and you can backout and be in another match in an instant…
I love gearbox for the borderlands series, and im awaiting the next… but i dont know if i can play this game much longer in mp… maybe story… another issue for me is Time to Kill is very high… but ill work around all that… but the backout issue is HUGE to me…
I completely agree with this guy, accept i purchased already and will keep the game in my collection:
I just ran into a huge deal breaker while trying to play VS Mode Online. I was unable to select the character I wanted to play and decided to back out and find another match so I could play with the character I wanted to select. The game will not let you join another Game??? I am prompted with the ONLY option: to play the game I backed out of, OR play nothing at all until the match I left is completed???
I understand the need to limit people from backing out of a match. But, technically it hadn’t even began. We were only in the character select screen. I assumed with today’s savvy technology, that another player in Queue would kindly be put into place when I dipped out. BEFORE the match even began.
Instead, I am forced to join only the match I left and select a character I don’t want? Or wait until the match I don’t want to play ends? Who’s idea was this? Have them read this next line >>>>> I WILL NOT PURCHASE BATTLEBORN UNTIL YOU COME UP WITH A BETTER SOLUTION.
