I dunno about everyone else but I've stopped playing until at least the next patch comes out. It'd be nice to have those 2 new maps sooner rather than later also, but its probably gonna be awhile

So is this very, very fun game hosed? It had every server full at launch and maybe 10k+ players. Last night it had about 500.

Would a patch fixing performance issues and letting people play with friends save it or is it too late?

Why do small incremental patches to show progress when you can make a huge post, never patch for 3 weeks and try to delete all evidence about the announced patch? Oh yeah and then show off upcoming weapon skins.

I just did a quick count of every server with a popular of more than 1.

318 people are playing right now, with a single 64 server full and the second 64 server at 53 people.

How are you seeing the matchmaking servers? Those don't show up on the server browser right?

I am not. And that is apparently true, no way to know how many are on match making.

Beta had the party bug on PC, I never would imagine 3 months later the bug would still exist this is going to go on some hall of fame of easily avoidable fuckups, all my friends have stopped playing because of it.

This remains the most mind-boggling decision.

Matchmaking has been quick and gives me relatively full servers quickly but it does seem a bit less populated as a game overall. It takes longer for a half-time server to fill up now for sure.

It might get better when the early access finish and the game release on steam.
The game has had pretty much 0 update since release, people are bored. And itís summer.

I have played 0 hours since they told the world that the spear was TOO OP TO BE LEFT ALIVE,


but then left it alive anyway.


A) deleting a weapon from your game to fix it is like, wtf?
B) not actually deleting the weapon you say is too powerful
C) """""""""""post launch support""""""""""


D), although also really A1) I am loving tired of workarounds and troubleshooting for basic game functions like matchmaking. This is not just a CHiv2 thing, but something endemic to the industry, if you were to only take the new games I'm playing anyway.

so, for these reasons, and frankly, many others (spawn system being among them) i will say the game was enjoyable but give it a hearty 1/10 score with a strong avoid at all costs rating.


also the game seems dead as poo poo, its not rare to just run into the same players. probably even less rare now that a month has gone by since i played.


E: also, i refuse to grant amnesty for low population based on the season, when they still haven't fixed matchmaking :shrug:

if this actually makes all the no life no fun sperglords abandon the game because the party issues (which are by far the most-lamented ones) mean they can't dunk on newbies togheter with their just-as-horrible friends, I'd consider it a win

I want to play with fun people, and sperglords are the opposite of fun most of the time

Ah yes those other people, the sperglords that want a functioning product so they can play with their social group while you can go queue alone and die alone

Those other guys sure are weird yes

I also hope they don't fix it, mainly because I am equally ok playing this game or watching it poo poo itself into DOA status like I predicted it would

No, no, I really actually meant the no life no fun sperglords. I am sorry if anyone feels attacked, but seeing what some people write in chat (yeah that's kinda on me for not disabling chat immediately and forever, but at times it's useful or funny) makes it abundantly clear what I am talking about :) and I hate them :argh:

There is no doubt that they have to step up the patching if the game is to survive, though, and not just fixes but new content. They promised it, let's see if they deliver.

It's not like I am going back to mordhau or chiv1 if I want to play a melee slasher, anyways :v:

I never even consider who might be in a party on my servers, theyíre too low on the scoreboard to even think about.

You shouldnít really fault people for being good at the game or wanting to play with their friends. Both are perfectly reasonable things to do.

Buglord

I played 2 rounds and didn't notice any lag.

I haven't tried PC parties functionality yet but... I did notice that Agatha can still hide out of bounds so Coxwell can still be unwinnable for Mason, there's still no overtime on Lionspire so if your trebuchet bomb is ticking down and the timer gets to 0:00 (or whenever the game decides it's close enough to 0:00, gently caress you) gg no re, oh and you still switch to fists instead of your 3rd weapon if you throw #1 and #2. :cmon:

Counters take Stam now which is bad for high skill players. 1h spear is out. And they added and fixed hair colors.

The lag definitely is noticeable. I donít know if itís net worse but itís different for sure.

But doesn't the super block last through your entire riposte/counter attack now though? Including if you feint into a heavy attack?

Seems like that would more than make up for that.

Played with SSweaterLive today while he was streaming. He managed to survive the peasant phase of Coxswell, and get to work with a mace and shield. Not dying the whole time. I topped the scoreboard and healed him a few times but it was definitely cool to see.

Yes. The patch is horrible and the game feels noticeably worse. Lag, rubber banding, getting dropped, massive ping spikes, screens randomly turns black for some matches...Jesus it's bad.

This happened earlier though. I was just zoned out spamming r2 swing and thought I was dead but they just kept dying. I know this is nothing to be proud of but it's definitely something the other team should be ashamed of lol.
