this game is not for everybody, but it is great and needs more players or else its going die. i love this game. but the optimization drove people away along with poor marketing. please save this game gearbox. i would love to be able to play this a year from now and have people still playing. i know you are working on new, free content. though i dont think that is going to make players come running back. you also need new players to raise the numbers and once old players see that they will want to come back. it will make matchmaking smooth and fast. my main issue is finding a match it takes forever and once people can have a smooth experience playing the game they will enjoy it more, therefore play it more and you will have much higher numbers increasing the chances that sales will increase. i would really love if you held off the micro-transactions until you get the playerbase back, as the few players are not too happy because while you did say you planned on it, you did not make it clear to players nor did you put in the early battleplans. so i think just having a free weekend and letting people test this game to see if they will enjoy it will cause people to play when the numbers are up and they can easily find a match.
i love this game and i dont want to see it die,
A very concerned gamer
