Hey guys I never post in any forums but I felt like I should express my concerns for the new update
I really don’t like how we now have to vote for which mode we get to play, and I don’t enjoy how we now only have the three maps available, I preferred Coldsnap over Paradise, Echelon over Overgrowth, but for capture Outback was my favorite. Don’t get me wrong I like all the maps, but if given the choice I would choose those. I really enjoyed the variety (even if it was just two maps) IMO it kept the game changing and I didn’t have to look at the same BG each match.
The first time I queued up for a match on the competitive mode, everyone voted between capture and meltdown which was fine for me, I think I’m decent on all modes and able to perform well. My team either didn’t know how to play meltdown or just fed the other team because they wanted to do capture.
The second Competitive mode I played was Incursion, I had a person DC from our team after everyone selected their character, I chose Ambra for the match, and the match ended because we didn’t have enough players. I really didn’t mind because hey, anything could have happened, bad connection, emergency, etc. They got put onto our team again and we voted for incursion again. Everyone picked the same character once again, and the person who DC from us picked Ambra and began taunting. Now I have other characters that I can play as, but the fact that they left the team just so they could pick Ambra pissed me off. But hey, I just wasn’t fast enough
TL;DR: To me it seems like the voting for what mode is causing players to DC because they don’t like what mode was chosen. I enjoyed the choice of picking my game, and I would love to have it back. I never cared about queue times for my matches, the weekly fixes seemed to take care of that just fine for me, matchmaking was never really a problem.
Oh and i’m on PS4 (if that matters)
