long q times, couldn’t find a pvp match wthin 12-15 minutes
gave up and did private, bots glitched out first match and wouldn’t leave base so lost. Building irritation at the game for no players and bad bots.
won the 2nd one for glacial amount of progression, no trophies, no challenges. Irked that it isn’t my fault there is nobody to play so these things need to be enabled on private. Will still take forever to finish regardless. Dopamine quickly killed with lackluster victory screen of silence and hardly any progression.
did story mode, matchmaking within 5 minutes. final horde mode the thing we were defending died and we fail the entire story after 30-40 minutes of getting to that fight. Felt like a colossal waste of time and got a bunch of trash drops at the end. No dopamine here.
still shocked at the incredibly narrow view and how much is obscured by my weapon. auto-aim is minimal at best and tons of effects that move your reticle around randomly. no auto-aim on hipfire which a lot of the characters are limited to. THIS GAME DOES NOT MAKE AIMING ON A CONTROLLER EASY. Bunch of PC mouse users made this game and have very little sympathy it seems.
progression system is unchanged. about 5 skins that aren’t pretty boring color swaps and all of em are tied behind a paywall. Credits come really slowly for loot packs that generate mostly trash. Not addictive. Dopamine not strong enough to want to repeat.
was reminded that story mode isn’t really a story. just a bunch of horde modes chained together and you have to start over from the very beginning if you fail the final horde mode. Feels like completely unnecessary punishing game design. Feels very out of touch.
This game man… I hope the winter update has some major changes. They need to make it easier to have fun in this game. Seems to have been designed by devs assuming it would be the next great MOBA addiction and needed super super long grinds. 99% of buyers not getting addicted should be a wakeup call for bad assumptions and to avoid getting married to your own design ideas.
