The question I keep seeing is how are you going to bring players back to pc?
I’ve got a theory that may explain the rather bare battleplan last week as well and could be how gbx will try to boost their player base. It all comes down to the next major patch.
What if the reason they didn’t want to do a big battleplan last week is that they want to do a HUGE patch this/next week? Consider how many things might be in the next update:
-Reporting feature which will reward players for staying and possibly punish cheaters/quitters (meaning better matches)
-3 new maps! (Which means more people trying more modes to check them out and thus better matchmaking in lower played modes)
-Pendles. A brand new character.
-Lore challenge fixes, a major complaint
-Balance/Fixes/changes to 24(!) of the 26 characters!
Wow that’s a lot!
What a better way to bring back players than new maps, changes to nearly every character, lore fixes, better matches, and a report feature? Rather than small stuff here and there they save it for one big push. A kickstart if you will.
I’d even venture to guess there will be new marketplace skins as well. Make the game feel new and (even) better than it is! Especially if they time it with this lootocalypse.
