The unfortunate fact remains about Battleborn, it was released at a bad time, right next to Overwatch. Now I love the game, don’t get me wrong, but decisions like this baffle me. No other game I have ever played, even CoD with all the ■■■■ it gets throughout it’s copy/paste gameplay has ever taken the player’s ability to choose what game mode they want to play away from them.
Gbox has done this twice, just completely throw Incursion into the Quickplay area. The Incursion matchmaking is undoubtedly the most populated playgroup, it doesn’t make any sense to MAKE people play game modes they don’t want to play. If they wanted to play Meltdown, Face-Off or Capture then they would be in the Quickplay matchmaking group and this issue wouldn’t be present, now you could make the argument that if you simply don’t like it then don’t play the game. Well most people do that. Gbox, you made a good Incursion mode, cool characters and some relatively funny story mode. I play Incursion, I know people who left the game for the entirety of the time the FIRST time you threw Incursion into Quickplay. I stopped playing the game as much myself.
It’s quite simple and it appears as though a good majority of the community agrees, we understand your intention to try and freshen up the game and keep it alive as long as you can, but the small community is only going to get smaller if you dictate how we have our fun. Leave Incursion out of all matchmaking that isn’t its own, it was not cool, it was not cute it was not fun the first or second time. Obviously the majority of the Incursion play group is not entertained with a 1 in 3 chance their mode comes on the screen for voting (if it comes at all), then a 1 in 3 chance for it to be something other than Echelon (the worst map in the game in many Incursion main’s opinions). If you’re going to throw it into Quickplay there should be an option for each of the four game modes, not a 3 game modes and “no preference” there should only be a “no preference” when it’s up to choosing the map.
