    I have a bunch of nephews at the house for a wedding this weekend. I managed to get them off Fortnite to try out Battlefront but this waiting between games is driving them nuts. I’ve said it forever, just shuffle the matches.

  • I'm also constantly getting kicked out when it says "Searching for xxxx" and then after a loooong time - back to menus

    PC
  • in fact I can't get any games! servers are either empty or bugged

    PC
  • Devs said they would listen to the community. We responded that this doesn't work. They do it 2 more times. Either they are deaf or illiterate or both. I give up.
  • I feel like this community is far too negative and unwilling to meet developers halfway.

    But this is insane. They broke a hero so bad he was removed from the game, and turned a double xp weekend into a bad thing on the same day.

    This is ridiculous.
  • as above. since latest patch
  • do you matchmake by ping? coz i'm joining american servers coz nobody plays on the local australian server most of the day
  • Can't meet the game devs halfway if I can't even play. This is so broke I'm starting to think an Attorney General needs to get involved along with consumer protection agencies. It's absolutely insane what's happening. I can't defend any of it any longer.

    I was actually seeing this in a string of Starfighter Assault matches earlier. Teams were shuffled every two matches. I played Light Side, then dark Side, then the teams were shuffled before the next map loaded. I noticed because the top 3 players in the lobby ended up on the same team. There were new players added, I think, but the lobby stayed full.

    I was a little excited that they were getting closer to what we were asking for.

    Hero Starfighters was a mess with the experimental system though

    I'm assuming the lobby didn't fill back up?

    That sucks. I was hoping they were on the verge of getting it right.

    Going to play some more SA and see what happens.

    Okay, tried again with Starfighter Assault but took screen caps this time. Same deal, no "Searching For Starfighter Assault..." until a new map was loading. The lobby filled up relatively quickly after the new map loaded. There was no shuffling when we stayed on the same map.
    First shot is the end of the match, the second shot is the lobby as soon as the game loaded the next map.
    Some players quit the lobby or were booted, but the players that stayed mostly remained on the same team. There was one strange exception. The highest scorer from their team was now on my team, so the top 3 scorers were now all on the same team.

    Whenever they do listen, they make a half-@ssed fix and introduce new bugs for things that weren’t bugged before.
  • I got kicked out of a full lobby into an empty one that never filled after 5 minutes :neutral:

    Funny how "everything" is communicated here and devs get lauded for that, and then the matchmaking feature no-one wanted or liked is turned back on surreptitiously. "If we remove the dedicated button, maybe no-one will notice?"

    That's because they wind up makng changes to things that no one asked for (e.g. changers to the HP for the Millenium Falcon).
    Also this is the third test of this "matchmaking" system, and the second time they've turned it on without announcing it. I bought this game to play it, NOT to be a tester for DICE and EA.

    It's getting bad. I played a few games of blast earlier. After 1 game I would be put in a lobby either on my own or with 1 or 2 people and the match making wouldn't add new players.

    Then you quit to main menu and join a game half way through. After game finishes same result sit and wait and room not filling. Go back to main join a game and guess what lol halfway through.

    The games seems to be getting worse each patch. I thought patches where supposed to make the game better. Guess not

    They should just shut it down at this point. Take some accountability to get it fixed correctly and in a timely fashion.

  • What a surprise, not. Turn on a thing which on every previous test has done this, and do not announce it. professionalism at its worst.

  • I am constantly being put into half-empty lobbies that wait ages for players.

    EA, fix this because it's really getting annoying! 8 months after release.... 8 months. An AAA title :smile:

    I doubt they will ever fix it. They always seen to break something else. If you in uk you will probably see them on watchdogs rogue traders section of show lol.

    Pretty much. This matchmaking thing is one of the most crucial aspects of the game and they HAD to tell us before putting that broken thing back.

    Who said it's AAA?
    What? Because it has Star Wars in the name?
    That's you're bad for assuming good quality rep when there has been none for its predecessor.

    Happening to me too on Xbox.
  • The worst part about this is that it takes time to find a game. Most of the time you get put in an ongoing game/almost finnished game. When match is over the search for a new game starts and after a while you get put in an almost empty lobby. When it doesnt full up you quit. Rinse and repeat

    That matchmaking situation is getting so tiresome, it's like talking to a wall, nobody's listening, nobody from Dice or EA seems to care.

    You would think that should be in top of the list in terms of priority but obviously no.

    I hope so. Cause was close to uninstalling this game because of the frustration. And I Love Star Wars.

    PC Platform: German, UK, Ireland Regions where working perfect before this new EOR matchmaking test.

    Third Time was still not the charm.

    At first I taught there might not be enough players on PC but I see Console users complaining too.

    Solution: Do not kick players out of a Full Lobby, just Shuffle the teams in the same Lobby when you load the next map.

    UPDATE: Just played Strike its FIXED.. you stay in same lobby. Back to Gaming.

    I love that they looking at matchmaking but my first experience of it last night was terrible.

    I had 5 of THE most unfair trouncings in GA I’ve had for months. I’m usually top 5ish, not great but ok but I couldn’t get out the bottom two. We was constantly put up against BFII gods all on the same team.

    Objectives were over in literally seconds.

    I’m hoping time levels it out a bit

    This is ridiculous.

    They,re listening, unfortunately this is just for statistical purposes.. for what im not sure of possibly a upcoming game that they want to be their cash cow. I am only speculating of course.. These bugs are blatantly obvious and almost fall in line/stack upon each other. Its like they want to see how far they can push the community in what's what is forgivable.. youll accept it one way or another, mainly because youve already purchased their product:/ EA has alot of stats, much much more than what we are provided. This test run seems to be adressed to people who will waiver basics over a weekend xp boost.the new hero modes=fast points for characters not usually able to play. Play galatic assult and its nearly impossible to get a hero/level them because of the score multiplier. If you had the multiplier in game think how fast you would of leveled those star fighter heroes.. Ea is listening lol they just dont care if your happy., they just want to know what will keep you playing their games:)

    Please stop trying to reinvent the wheel.

    What you are trying to do prob looks great on paper, but all you are doing is antagonizing an already unhappy player base.

    All we want is for the lobbies to reshuffle and private matches so clans/ parties and set up games with other clans/ parties and have competitive games instead of pub stomp after pub stomp like we have now.

    When you do these tests, play 1/2 a game when entering, then go into a lobby with 2 other players, go for a walk, maybe the game will start, but more often everyone drops out, gets the black screen of death, needs to restart, and we end up looking at load screens more than we play, and give up.

    Just keep it simple.

    Are they using shortly the same way they used soon now? At what date can I expect to find a game again? Was kinda hoping to make good use of the double xp in between World Cup matches but I guess that's not happening.

    I wonder when someone in the game industry has an idea about using closed environments and things to test updates instead of making the entire game literally unplayable until they figure out what's wrong, oh wait this is already a thing just not for these guys :-)

    It just makes too much sense to care about, you'd think this is such an obvious thing to have you shouldn't have to ask for it.

    It comes and goes for me
    I can play a few rounds and everything is great
    Then all of a sudden I've been exiled to the empty lobby of death
    I wait in my solitary confinement and realise there shall be no visitors
    Then it all starts again looking to get a game
    When playing with friends this doesn't happen

    @FORGE Communication after the fact isn't communication.

    Hiding the matchmaking button and forcing a system that didn't work 2x before? Another example of not communicating. Hiding it makes the act deceitful. Waiting a day to address the multitude of threads on the subject lets the community know we have nothing here worth salvaging. Consolidating the multitude of threads seems sketchier still. Hiding the displeasure of the community by making it seem as though it's a minor issue with only one thread is again a bit deceitful even if the intent was benign. It's hard to assume that it was benign with the lousy communication we received on just this topic alone.

    I think I just watched a rapidly angry and shrinking player base reach it's current tipping point. It will only get harder and harder to find matches as players run from this hot garbage as fast as they possibly can. They likely killed the game yesterday after this and pulling a main character. They just can't keep starting fires every patch. In between that they SECRETLY and DECEITFULLY implemented this match making rancid flatulence that we have here now.
