I’m getting pretty sick of the matchmaker throwing it’s hands up and going “whateevr” and sticking me with less than 5 people.
I so often get just one other person, and I’ve had the game stick me IN A SOLO MATCH before!
If I play PUGs, it’s because I want to play a full 5-man group Gearbox; I don’t mind waiting a bit for your matchmaker to find 5 people - please stop giving up and stuffing me into less than 5 person matches.
It’s not like I can do sh*t about it - only thing I can do is force kill the game, because by the time it locks you into the group, you can no longer leave any other way.
Furthermore, you cannot possibly KNOW (or even GUESS) that it’s gonna give you less people. The amount of time it will search for other players is 100% arbitrary: sometimes it stuffs me into a group with just one other person after 10 seconds, sometimes it will try for over a minute to find more people, and then does.
Due to how many people leave matches when they don’t get the map they want, this is quite infuriating!
If I wanted to play a singleplayer match, I’d have selected it in the menu. If i wanted to play with just one other person, I’d do a private match with a friend.
PvP doesn’t have this issue as it demands full teams before the game will begin. While PvE CAN fully function and balance for less players, I’d ask that you at least START the matches with 5 players ffs please…
Please fix this Gearbox (this is on PC for me at least).
