Hello everyone. I’m an experienced Battleborn player with 1029 matches played and 12 characters mastered. I’m not the best player but I am past the core concepts and have my own min maxing meta strategies. I tried to get my friends to get the game at launch but I was the only one I knew who had it for Xbox. I have since met a few players and we team up periodically and generally do well, and what losses we do have are usually pretty close. However with the population issues and not having many friends with the game I often wind up trying to solo queue in pvp.
This is where the real problem begins. I know that as of this post they have announced changes that may or may not help this issue but I will no longer play battleborn without a party, and I will tell you why. At best I will get 2 players with comparable skill level to mine and we might be able to carry the other two noobs we got matched with against a similar team. At worst I get stuck with 4 green players, who don’t communicate against a premade team of try hards. It is a struggle at the best of times and a exercise in frustration and futility at the worst. I have yet to find the character who can carry 4 almost useless players. Although I got close as kid ultra before they broke his bola. Maybe a separate solo queue? But that would just split the already dwindling player base. It seems unfair for a party of 5 to match up against random match ups.
I have completed all the story and ops many times and I love this game but I am running out of reasons to play it. Send me an invite and I would love to play, even if you are not good. Just having team communication makes the game worth playing. Otherwise you probably won’t see me in the queues until the new update.
