Let me first just say that I absolutely love this game, it is without a doubt the best BR game on the market. I’ve been following it since just after the Kickstarter, participated in the alpha, and have eagerly bought copies of the game and many skins for myself and friends. It would be difficult to find someone who wants this game to succeed more than me.
After the player retention failed to materialize post-launch, I was concerned but generally agreed with the devs that people weren’t sticking around due to a lack of “stuff to do” after the initial looting period. And the latest content patch, in my opinion, solves those problems. The game is now engaging at every stage and the fights are even more heart-pounding and memorable than before.
However, the results were obviously not what was expected. The community manager answered a few posts prior to the patch saying “the player count is down but a new content patch is coming soon which will bring in new players”. But that didn’t happen. Between EU and NA servers there are barely 10 people online to start a match, and even then you’re waiting for 10+ minutes most of the time.
So, I now am asking the devs: what are we going to do? I think we would all like an official response since the free weekend is long over and we’re all biting our fingernails.
Please avoid posting “the devs need to do X” responses - there are plenty of good threads already created for that. This thread is for us, the fans of this great game, to ask the dev team how they’re planning on letting us play it.
Love you, Define Human! We’ve got your back, but we need you to take the lead.
