Clearly you're not interested in people trying to help you out by offering suggestions or highlighting your issue. You've ignored my suggestions, or twisted them to suit your irate narrative. I didn't tell you to buy the game again, and I don't work for MercurySteam, but hell - if I did, you're making it hard to help you. I'm done with this thread, good luck buddy.

@BOILER 4K: I hope they figure something out for you and others in your situation though. I only really contributed to this thread to keep a dialogue going to get some eyes on it and try to work toward solutions.

Bug report & Technical Support / Re: Can't equip locked cards.

Please fix.

How will this work with PS4, and Sony's policy against cross/platform? I'm interested in the answer here. They'll probably just split users on the fly, or just cut off us PS4 players. Hope you guys work it out soon, sounds like Xbox One/W10 is unplayable atm.

I play on XBox, but usually not until after 6pm EST Mon-Fri. Weekends can be spotty.

There are a lot of you guys on here. A sizeable portion of this forum is US-based on Xbox/W10.

Argentil im italian and i play on xbox one,the only people i found lives in the US,now you want play in the midnight?
thats why i want the offline/solo mode rewards because i cant farm NOTHING!!!

I see why you'd be frustrated, for sure. Realistically, what would you have them do? If you can think of a solution, you should really try pitch it to them. Also, do you have a US account? I'm not sure why you're getting matched with US players. The PS4 version has a US and EU version with split playerbases. Is the Xbox One version not like that?

No, I wasn't suggesting you start over again in a new region, unless you hadn't invested too much into the game. It wasn't my real solution to the problem, but a consolation prize, so to speak.

Sadly, this is a multiplayer focused game from a small studio, their profitability relies on a large number of online players. You wouldn't expect Overwatch or CoD to go single-player for similar reasons. They need people online to flesh out the community and keep queue times reasonable, so they can't make everything available offline - but it's beyond that point for you.

Again, I agree that the drip-feed of characters and the pricing of skins is worthy of derision and should be brought up again and again. Keep making noise over these issues, they will make some concessions where they're willing. Offline content is likely not one of those areas. Likewise, keep making noise about the queue times in your region, but please state your platform and region. Hopefully they'll find a solution, even if it comes to merging regions and playing with higher ping. Ultimately, I think the W10-Xbox One playerbase will keep shrinking, so they need to do something now. Whether it's promoting the game in those territories, doing giveaways, I don't know. I think they're more likely to give up on it though, unless an alternative solution is discovered. Another option may be to scale to a certain number of players. So having 2-4 players and adjusting the difficulty around this.

Either way, I'm on your side, I'm just trying to be pragmatic.

Suggestions / Recruitment Sub-Forum
 on: December 01, 2017, 04:22:41 PM 
I'd like to suggest the addition of a recruitment sub-forum to this forum for the sake of the many Xbox One/W10 players who seem to be having issues finding matches. If there could be a dedicated space where people could party up and play, it might at least help with the issue.

Please could you consider facilitating this, there's a dire need for community building for this reason as the game is worthless without people to play with.

I sympathise, really I do. Which region are you in? And which platform? I can only think you're in a low pop area, or you're playing off-peak. Though I often find games at off-peak hours within 10 minutes. Queuing as a group of 3 does make your queue times longer though. You should really try recruit a 4th, there's so much incentive to do so. If you really are in a low pop region, surely there must be someone on the forum in a similar situation who would like to join you. I know it's a drag.

I play EU PS4, if you want a filler. I have a feeling you're US though?

The only other solution would be to play the game on a different platform or get the EU version of the client and put up with more latency. I do find though, that sometimes MM seems to "break" and you can end up queuing for a really long time for no reason. Restarting the queue helps sometimes.

Gameplay Feedback / Re: Mastery?
 on: December 01, 2017, 02:33:33 PM 
Thanks for the response, Hellath. Yes, that makes sense. As for the higher rewards with higher difficulty, well, that's not usually the case in practice. You end up scoring lower overall because the difficulty scales higher than the amount of credit it gives you for completing at that difficulty. It seems to be slightly better now after this patch, but it's still way lower than it should be, imo. It feels like you're punished for doing well.

I would recommend maybe disabling the mastery pop-up, it's unnecessary. Unless you want to reflect this rating in-game somewhere.

Edit: I just want to clarify what I mean about feeling punished. Gaining mastery is inevitable if you want to win matches, which everyone does. We don't seem to get enough credit for the difficulty in the scoring phase. Additionally, as the difficulty escalates, your winrate drops when you get above 60% difficulty, so it just feels like an inconvenience most of the time. I feel like gaining difficulty should proportionately improve your rewards to compensate for the losses you might face at higher difficulties.

On a sidenote, doing the new campaign maps at 60% difficulty is quite lame, dealing with the new mechanics and players at that difficulty is rough. Could you maybe bump down the difficulty of the first level for the first few weeks to compensate for people learning? Or make difficulty map-specific. All these new players trying to learn the map at that difficulty usually results in a loss.

Ok, so I've received an invitation after a few wins. It occurred on Hanging By A Thread. I assume based on this that it's just random. Some transparency on the % of earning a ticket would be nice.

I'm still not sure what Mastery was, but the pop-up after games seems to have disappeared. I suspect it has something to do with MMR? Who knows.

You guys have to realise that this game lives and dies by it's online community. MercurySteam require a robust online community, or the game dies a quick death. By giving you everything you want in offline mode, they would be castrating the longevity of the game. I think patching in some offline co-op at a later date would be a good idea though.

Edit: The skin thing though is a travesty, no arguments there.

On a more constructive note, I suspect that both Ginebra and Loaht's skins are so pricey because they're "two skins in one" with the transformations. I can't agree with this mindset personally, and even then, 3000 MP for one skin is still way too greedy.

It really concerns me that apparently this system is working, because I thought selling a higher quantity of lower priced skins would have yielded more returns in the long run. Apparently the whales lack self-control even more than my cynical expectations.

Hey, Whales, please stop buying these obscenely priced skins. Kthx.

I just checked, that's daft. I've bought about 6 skins, but nothing above 750 MP. I wanted Shae's skin the most, but there's no way I'm paying even 1100.

You should specify your platforms. For clarity, I'm on PS4 and the campaign is working fine without the founders pack.
