I said it once but I’ll say it again.
Battleborn took INSANE backlash from Gaming Media Outlets and OW fanboys.
Doesn’t matter if it will be F2P or NOT.
If you can’t Market your game at the right time in the right place AHEM AHEM 2K A-HOLES, then it won’t live up to its expectations (and then THEY claim that “Battleborn and Evolve is not one of our Games” b*stards…)
ANY-WHO ! , what I’m trying to say is that the PC platforms holds around 100-200 players per-day + region separations reduces the number even less , hence the reason for the “Broken Matchmaking”.
If PC players want to play with a good connection and get players much faster , they need a bigger player base. That’s it !
Solution #1 is to try to bring back the rest of the 12,070 players at “all-time pick” (which is impossible due to various issues at lunch the need to unlock ALL characters in the game which is tedious )
Solution #2 is Free 2 Play , which isn’t bad, but again bad timing since there are already F2P MOBA games out there like Paladins , MXM and Paragon. F2P might increase the player base by the hundreds. Depending on how the F2P version will work the player base might grow or fall-short.
Solution #3 (which is the simplest one) is Cross-Platform. while the Consoles won’t really notice the change, the remnants of Battleborn on PC would finally be able to jump into matchmaking without scratching their balls for half hour while looks at 9 rows that say " @ Searching for Opponents… "
Now , which do you choose ?
