Which lines are we talking about? The ones played by the vending machines sound bad on purpose, like they're coming from a lovely speaker in-world

the ones that play when you buy the special gold guns in the event arena, which I now realize are probably the same as the vending machines and that's why they sound that way. mystery solved

Game is completely broken right now. Ranked arena wins are counting as BR wins and season 10 BR wins. All arena Weekly’s and dailies only complete when playing BR. All BR weekly and daily’s are counting up when you win ranked arena and also showing season 10 wins and total wins lol. Awesome. 😂

Now I do not know whether I was then a head coach dreaming I was a Saints fan, or whether I am now a Saints fan, dreaming I am a head coach.

See last night I just did BR for the event and dailies and now I feel like I missed out on some easy stat scumming.

Goddamn the free track weapons are really nice looking, a slick Triple Take and a chunky-rear end Wingman

Yeah it's a skin for a gun you'll never see and a gun you already have 50000 legendary skins for but I'm always happy to see free players get cool stuff

if you are aiming down sights with a fast weapon, like the alternator, and you press z, for some reason it bypasses the spinup. this will be fixed soon!

I don't think it's an isolated issue, but has anyone else had some MAJOR issues actually getting into a server/match since the new update dropped? It's my own dumb fault for continuing to try Ranked games but everything will seem to be working fine but, as soon as the game 'starts', prior to selecting legends, poo poo grinds to a halt and I get booted off. I try to rejoin and it tries to load me back in but then I continue to get error messages. Then, after all that, I get hit with an abandonment penalty which is definitely salt in the wound.

EDIT: Per Respawn, appears I'm not the only one:

Pretty much everyone on the discord has had it happening to them as well in unranked BR and (un)ranked Arenas alike.

You're a brave, brave soul for trying to play Ranked on patch day and any subsequent days.

I was sniffing Platinum for the first time yes I'm trash and with only a few days left I was trying to make a push. The ~100 RP I've lost from abandonment penalties certainly don't help... :(

It's usual to exaggerate when talking about connection issues, so some hard numbers: of the ten trios games that I have played today, I was DCed on entering the game three times, and of the other seven games, two had a single other member of our team DC at start, and three had both other players DCed at start. This is the London servers, something is heavily borked. Even in-game, there's weird audio lag and rubberbanding half the time.

If I hadn't made diamond the hour before the patch dropped, I'd be cross.

On an unrelated note, Crypto is amazing for solo-queue plat Ranked, and I wish I'd known that sooner. Hardlocked Plat IV teammate splits off from jump master to drop in Fragment? Drop a little way away and grab their banner. Team runs at enemies on high-ground while hipfiring randomly? Crypto ult might not save them, but it's got a good chance of making the enemy take cover instead of mowing them down, until they close the gap. If my normal plat RP outcome was a normal curve, he's eliminated the entire lower two-thirds - never climbed to diamond so fast, ever.

Yeah none of the Twitch pros are playing ranked anymore. A lot of ppl been having the rubber banding issue including myself and I imagine it’s gotten worse based on what I’m hearing.

servers are pretty much broken, and when you do get in (took me 10+ tries sometimes and sometimes i just gave up) the majority of teams have a quick spin rampart. it's quite oppressive lol

Did 5 games, only 1 where it froze and somehow counted.

One such actual game I came across a duo who probably froze. I punched them out for the kills.

And used my last 700 coins on a lootbox. I got the new Bang skin, which is pretty loving awesome, and one of the two I want (Pathfinder).

saw a game where four seperate squads either had all dropped people or at least the jump master all auto jump, fan out exactly to four points and synchronized dive straight down into the water. this patch is really good.

The game i got into I actually crashed out of but was able to hop back in after a relogin. I knew something was up when i saw that i was still alive at the estates after being AFK / crashed for something like 4 minutes.

Edit: Those paintball guns look fun sure would be great to be able to PLAY THE GAME.

My buddy is D1 in ranked arenas and he usually goes 2020/Mozam and then grabs whatever is on the drop. I'm sure this is a fine loadout that will work for everyone out there.

I just had an arena which ended up being 1v1 when it was time to load in. I was laughing and getting psyched for some deathmatch when my two mystery teammates joined seconds before the gate opened, on the enemy's side of the map.

I almost made a post yesterday about not seeing the server issues everyone is talking about but I did encounter some last night. It still only amounted to one crash (reconnected just fine), a few AFK teammates, and a couple of free kills on AFK enemies.

Definitely a problem that needs fixing, but not unplayable for me. Possibly just lucky.
