I have been trying to finish Kleese’s lore challenge for a week now - it involves playing him on every map in the game. Before today, I had three stints where I waited in the Capture map queue for around 30 minutes. And no, this is not an exaggeration. This was Friday 7-8 around 7 PM, Saturday 7-9 around 10 PM, and Sunday 7-10 around 1 PM, all times US Eastern.
It’s now 2:57 and I have been in the Capture queue since 1:22 PM.
In total, in around 3 hours of wait, I have not gotten a SINGLE capture game. NOT ONE.
Gearbox - your game is amazing. The polish and voice acting is incredible. Balance is quite good with a few exceptions (spin2win), the game is easy to get in to, and has TONS of replayability based on how unique the characters are.
I’m sure you know this, but once you fall below critical mas, the game will die. I don’t know if we’re there yet, but it really can’t be far off if I can’t get a single game in over three hours, which include peak times like Friday night and weekends.
I implore you - please don’t wait any longer to implement the upcoming changes to matchmaking. It could be too late by then, and I would really hate to see this great game fail so quickly.
It’s 3:04 and still, no match.
