Battleborn Battleplan #5: 6/9/16

Hey bud, quit being a dumbass. Obviously they have something in the works. Whether or not they tell us what it is.

Once again talk about the game and not others, warnings are going out

Update on PC Europe Capture Queue.
Gave 5 minutes before logging into BB to ensure I’d get the hotfix when logging in.
Still in same queue for first game after hotfix - approaching 2 hour wait (6 minutes to go).

Any word on when the next full patch is coming out? Is it ready and being sent out for certification?

Dude, Overwatch has 12 maps at the moment. Battleborn is the one having 6 PVP maps, not the other way around. This doesn’t mean that Battleborn is bad, it’s just ironic that you clearly haven’t even played the game you’re judging while accusing other people of judging Battleborn without playing it.

New users: Please read the forum rules before posting.

We have a thing here where we don’t like forum users talking about other forum users, because it nearly always ends in anguish and flaming. The thing is, Gearbox are really interested in your opinions about their games. They have no interest at all in your opinions of other forum users. So, please, just talk about the games. If you find any posts troublesome, just hit that little flag, tell the moderators what the problem is, and we’ll resolve things.

There is absolutely no point in getting into personal squabbles here. Thanks.

I know of the talk going around about it, but, as they say, talk is cheap. It doesn’t fix the diving and feeding issues that are so common as soon as there is an Ambra or Mike on the enemy team.

Sadly there isn’t much that can be done outside saying they are working on it. Time frames give unrealistic expectations. At least they could keep us updated on the progress. Without any progress to be seen, it gives the impression that:

  1. They aren’t working on it.

  2. They don’t view it as a pressing issue, and thus put it on the back burner.

I don’t think anything in this patch addressed that, can we please stay on topic. Feel free to post that in the appropriate thread.

The requeue thing was supposed to address queue time problems.

Ok fair enough, did you requeue with a party? And if I get stuck for longer than 5 mins in a queue I usually restart it and get right into a game. Have you tried that?

This matchmaking hot fix is great hopefully it helps with matchmaking queue times and disconnects. Although it is starting to get boring playing the same one map (Overgrowth) repeatedly. Please release new maps/game types ASAP as I feel the number of players is going to keep dropping at a rapid rate. Seems like the matchmaking queue wait time is due to all the active players being in a game so you have to wait for current games to finish to fill the lobbies.

I haven’t even got a game to get a “requeue” of my own from, lol.
People quit and come back to the same queue all the time thinking it’ll make a difference (it’s still funny seeing someone leave only to be right back and say “damn, lol”).
When I lose 4 people and am left on my own I quit and queue back in (answer to your question: yes).

Makes no difference.
Welcome to my current week of Battleborn.
I want as much attention to the dire state of PC because I want it to live, desperately.

I will provide final update when a game actually happens. I waited 5 hours once, I can wait 6 if I must.

I was talking about PVP maps and I did that because Overwatch doesn’t have PVE maps - since it has no campaign.

Might as well change to US servers, thats what i did after being unable to find a game for days and I usually get games now. European servers at least are mostly dead, no matter what mode you choose.

It’s interesting to see how many people say “back to overwatch” when a hotfix doesn’t fix what they personally dislike.

That’s like if the soda truck broke down and they couldn’t restock coke at Walmart until tomarrow and I just said, “Back to 7/11!”

Exactly

playing Overgrowth over and over and over and over and over and over again gets pretty boring. And PVE maps are maps but they don’t count towards PVP maps. PVP game modes and maps are a clear issue this game has and contributes to the number of players dropping. I love BB and I put up with playing the same map over and over in hopes new content comes out, but we all know, no FPS game can last with these lacking features.

Then play other maps and other modes and use other characters. Once again this is a game about characters. If you are bored of it then play games you are not bored of. Thats what I do, I play games that are fun for me while they are fun.

I’ve still really only gone deep into 4/25 characters, a handful I’ve played a bit, and a handful I’ve really not touched. So for me I’ve barely scratched the surface of this game.

I’m having fun learning the characters, in PVE and PVP. I don’t treat this like other games because its not like other games.
