  • This is the worst experience I have had with this game, and I am one of the best players on ps4. I am so damn mad right now because I died 2x from literally nothing then got kicked from a close game. Getting sent to empty lobbies and getting sent to asian servers for no reason. Can you just let us play the damned game please? It is Monday...The tests need to finish. Completely embarrassing I will continue to not even name EA because I feel for the Dice developers working on this horrid pile of garbage right now
  • that is a good idea to include let the player decide into what type of matching making they want. But this is getting out of hand. Been playing HvV today and the match making is horrible to a point making the game not fun.

    Same maps are not always played over and over. You typically just get 2 rounds, occasionally the map is randomly selected again. Still fun. Also, the few people who come on the forums and continuously complain about this do not represent the entire community. But your opinions still matter, do not get me wrong. But do not assume that 15 people represent the community, but people are more motivated to post negative feedback than positive feedback in general. You need to read between the lines, not just use the reviews at your disposal.

    I think they’re referring to the limited maps in rotation over this weekend, although the mm has given me the same map four times in a row this time and last time round it was seven, so it’s getting better! ;)

    UnknownGamer is right...I never post but have been so discouraged in the continuous weekend testing (and now that appears to carry over into the rest of the week) with a very limited number of maps (max 4). I don't use a PC for my game play, and other than weekends, the full rotation of maps is available and time between matches is minimal. He is also correct in that I don't speak for everybody, nor do these other posts. Maybe there are issues at some locations on some devices that need improvement, probably there is a grand scheme I have no clue about, but for me--game play has greatly deteriorated. But on a positive note, I now have time to grab some lunch, catch up on my emails and post to this forum between matches.

    I will say this to those who have issues, do these even if you seem to have good connection...
    Run CCleaner
    Hardwire, it makes a difference. Believe me, you might not have even known you needed it.
    Repair game
    Use the new default server, or pick one with bigger lobbies(don't go to the server down under, from what I hear lobbies are few and far between).

    Seems like you may have had a connectivity issue if you were booted mid-game. And larger servers may have been available there, was your ping ok? Could also try joining with a buddy, fixed issues on similar empty lobby issues.

  • I get that creating a matchmaking system is going to cause disruption (that basic matchmaking wasn't included at launch is another conversation) but could the Dev's let us know when the testing will end?
    I think better communication between Dev's and community would lead to a lot less agro in situations like this.

    Was 24hr, then had a new testing session. Maybe it is permanent?

    Hey Everyone,

    We wanted to give you a quick heads up with regards to some further tests, and tweaks, that we are going to be performing on the End of Round Matchmaking.

    These tests will begin today, Friday 12th October at 12:00 UTC.


    The test will continue through the weekend and will allow us to gather a lot more data on the matchmaking behaviour across all game modes.

    As part of the tweaks we are making for this test, we are reducing the number of maps that are within the rotations.

    This will ensure we get more data across all maps, and servers will be fuller. These changes to the map rotations will spread across multiple game modes, a breakdown of which you can find below.

    Heroes vs Villains
    • Day One: Cloud City, Tatooine, Endor, Hoth, Death Star II
    • Day Two: Starkiller Base, Jakku, Takodana, Yavin 4
    • Day Three: Naboo, Kashyyyk, Kamino, Kessel, Jabba’s Palace

    Galactic Assault
    • Day One: Kashyyyk, Naboo, Kamino, Tatooine
    • Day Two: Hoth, Endor, Yavin 4, Death Star II
    • Day Three: Crait, Jakku, Starkiller Base, Takodana

    Starfighter Assault
    • Day One: Unknown Regions, Endor, Ryloth, Fondor
    • Day Two: D'qar, Kamino, Fondor, Ryloth
    • Day Three: Unknown Regions, Endor, Kamino, D'qar

    Strike
    • Day One: Kamino, Naboo, Kashyyyk
    • Day Two: Endor, Hoth, Tatooine, Yavin 4
    • Day Three: Starkiller Base, Jakku, Takodana, Deathstar II

    Blast
    • Day One: Kamino, Kashyyk, Naboo, Jabba’s Palace
    • Day Two: Deathstar II, Tatooine, Endor, Hoth, Cloud City
    • Day Three: Jakku, Takodana, Starkiller Base, Crait, Kessel

    Hero Showdown
    • Day One: Endor, Jabba’s Palace, Deathstar II, Hoth
    • Day Two: Kashyyyk, Kamino, Naboo
    • Day Three: Jakku, Starkiller Base, Cloud City

    We learned a lot from the recent test, and are already working on further backend improvements which we hope to deploy shortly.

    As always, we really appreciate your feedback during these tests and thank you for your continued patience.

    Strike and Blast
    We will also be making some changes to both Strike and Blast. Both of these game modes will be operating on a one round basis, and not two.

    Thanks!
    So far it has been extremely enjoyable! I have noticed quite a difference.
  • I'm not as educated as I should be to be responding to this post, but after another frustrating weekend (plus some), I think the developers owe the playing community some kind of explanation (and apology). In my opinion (we all have them), if they are going to beta test a game, they should post that version of the game on-line somewhere and let those who are interested participate in the test. For those of us who have paid for a full-up game and pay EA a monthly stipend in order to play this full-up game on-line, I think we should have full access to the game we paid for. For several weekends now, we have only had access to, at best, one third of the capabilities of the game we purchased. I think we should be paying EA one third of their monthly stipend until this nonsense stops. Maybe this posting is against the rules, but probably so is EA/DICE's using the paying community for their test guinea pigs and only providing a fraction of the capabilities we paid for and expect.

    My ping is at 33s, I see no reason why I have any lag and I was grouping with Americans. Some things just remain the same: Force abilities not working like Luke's Push infront of 6 people it did nothing, Vader getting stuck in choke animation, the unbearable lag through out the entire day.

    When people leave a group by cancelling the matchmaking, the Galactic Assault breaks completely and you have to quit your game and restart the group to painfully wait a while before getting in the game because of queue. These things have been here for a long time, it's time that they are aware of these issues and be fixed before the game goes back to normal tomorrow. Let's hope this matchmaking nightmare ends.

    P.S: We still won every game today, the turrets and MTT A.I are better than 3/4 of the playerbase, FACT and PROVEN today if I saw anyone of you on ps4 you know what im talking about
  • No one is even playing PC anymore because of the garbage matchmaking happening right now. Just spent over an hour and a half searching for games just to be put in empty lobbies every time until I finally found a game, lasted all of 5 minutes, and then back to being thrown around empty lobbies. Wasn't this test supposed to only be over the weekend? A significant player base has decided to just not play until the EOR matchmaking is fixed, this should be the largest red flag that this system doesn't work and far too many people hate it for it to be something implemented into the game. I can guarantee that if this system or a similar one is put into the game permanently the game will die (at least on PC) practically overnight.
  • This game is so flawed by the updates you guys employ, In Strike mode on Ps4. Now, even when I play with FIVE friends of mine who are all great players, we can never beat the other team when they play defense. They just all Spawn into the end zone now like a swarm and we CANNOT get through like we USED to when we played together a thousand times.

    PLUS there is a glitch when I get 3-4 friends to play in Strike that the Spawn feature just goes blank, so now when the enemy just keep spawning IMMEDIATLEY back into the end zone (the heart of the battle) all my team has to do a 25-30 sec sprint just to get back there only to get mowed down by 8 players who are in the end zone now from SPAWNing.

    Now you guys added ROUND MATCHMAKING feature so that instead of me playing with my same team against same enemy team... I am transported to empty lobbies.

    I'm done with EA and DICE.
  • It's as if you guys want us to STOP playing this game and stop posting about it. SURE, I 'll stop playing, but it also means I'm boycotting Dice and EA forever.

    I know the MONEY is gone, but can I just have my game back the way it was two weeks ago?

    I have been playing since December, this is the first time I truly had an unpleasant time. The Matchmaking is bad, I did not believe the other players that suffered through this before, but it is true.

    Maybe its a clever ploy to scare the last of the playerbase off with Red Dead Redemption 2 out in a weeks time

  • Well, with this thing turned on I can’t see what map I’m loading into. I’m talking Naboo and Tatooine. There are maps for both planets but it’s a guess as to what one you are loading out for.

    There is little reason to load up my sniper for Jabba’s Condo, but I like to snipe at the cantina.

    @F8RGE can we please get the planet AND map info for the upcoming round after the matchmaking is complete?
    Find me in Blast, Strike, or sometimes GA, usually playing Officer/Specialist/Aerial... u/n cosworth99. #oldguy
    Add me (xbox Oregon server) if you like
  • So the EOR MM test wasn't for just the weekend? Thought it would be well over by now but it still in full swing.

    Really hard to even get GA games on PC now, please turn it off.

    So I guess we're back at day 2 of the map rotation? So potentially 4 maps to play inbetween all the extra waiting time, if you are Lucky enough...

    Thank Yoda that Rdr2 is out next friday...
  • Please get rid of the matchmaking. It really is awful. I'm sick of playing on Naboo and Kashyyk over and over.

    Yes I have high hopes for RDR2... a game that was delayed so that the developer could get the game right at release instead of getting the playing community to pay to participate in an endless beta test.

    The Battlefront community is going to take a hit on 26 October, if there is one left after this latest MM debacle.
  • MatchMaking has been a disaster.

    Scenario 1: My side gets wrecked. Matchmaking finds a new game where I not only get the same skill level (on my side) but also the same maps over and over. Yesterday, I played Kamino for 7 matches in a row, only alternating sides twice.

    Scenario 2: My side wins. Matchmaking throws me into a new game with no players. WTF?!

    Scenario 3: Either wide wins. Matchmaking throws me into a new game where skill levels are almost equal. Maps don't alternate, however.

    Time to turn Matchmaking OFF! It's not working yet.

    Star Wars Battlefront II EOR Matchmaking Test update. We are seeing games are fuller, which is something we aimed to achieve. We have plans for tweaks with the goal of reducing the time to Matchmake.

    What?! Are you seriously not listening to people? We don't want it!!!

    Great, so this proves they seek 0% feedback from this forum on anything.

    So obvious that they are using this as a live test for another IP. The game has been limping along since launch and if it wasn't Star Wars would have died a long, long time ago.
  • I can tell you free of charge that when you have a major data centre like UK unavailable then data that you collect is unreliable as performance will be impacted by lag as the large UK population is pushed onto Irish and German servers

    They should preface these messages with , "Dear Americans"
    If you see this, it means I haven't found a game in well over 30 minutes.
    PLAYERS NEEDED: ANY!

    I'd say it is for Battlefield 5.
  • You can't expect feedback from people.
    They're just giving lip service when they say they want feedback. They're just looking at their servers for data.

  • I don't post, or make responses here often, I am going to do so, just for the sole reason to rant. You may agree, or might agree with what I say, I digress. It seems since a month after this game's release, every time the devs. say they are going to do something to make the game better, I literally dread reading those words. For the most part, it just gets worse. Yes, they've made a number of improvements, and for some time did reach out to the community, yet there does not seem to be an overall positive balance to the amount of testing, and screw ups. Instances like this match making "fix" is just another example of breaking something that did not have to be fixed (or broken).
    Yes, there were empty servers, and there could be wait times, but that depended on the time of day, or it depended on how many people still have an interest in playing this game. The wait times are longer now. In addition to that, the spawn on your teammate is a farce, as most people are constantly engaged in battle, it's a fast paced arcade game, not a cloak and dagger game where that where spawning could be easier.
    I'm not sure why the devs haven't taken a note from Battlefield 4's online mechanism, where you can select populated rotational maps, with green lit ping for your region (or somewhere nearby) so we can choose what is best for us, as opposed to whatever monstrosity this is?
    On a positive note, that one second spawn time over the weekend was awesome, try implementing that on a permanent basis. The whole wait time kills momentum, and is rather redundant.


  • Please turn this off. It's horrible!

    Can't play against friends in HvV or Showdown anymore

    In GA we keep getting shuffled out of good matches into unbalanced ones

    Generally we keep playing same maps over and over

    If they want to leave an option to individually click matchmake, that's fine - but let me choose. Don't force it on us.

    Really it should be what everyone is asking for: scramble the teams where the top player goes to side A, the 2nd and 3rd top go to side B, the 4th to A, the 5th to B, etc.
  • Well, not really excited about the EOR here.

    region: Europe
    server: Germany
    lantecy: 62 ms but reaching 200 ms sometimes and not because my Inet provider or connection, It was the game server

    Playing on PC, Windows 10 Pro Redstone 5

    No problem on finding the first match on almost any game mode. I playerd Ewok Hunt (it lasted a lil more in finding a game cause of the palck of players on that mode), Extraction, Blast, Heroes Vs Villains, Galactic and Starfighter Assault, and Strike.

    - I was able to find matches on every game mode I played
    - Sometimes I landed in an already started match and others I joined a fresh lobby and started a match in almost full/full server
    - Experimented some lag during the matches, specially in GA, and sometimes heavy lag
    - During my gameplay i was jumping from well balanced matches to semi full or empty lobbies
    - The lobby generation (this is not matchmaking) did not added any balance, most of the times it was just starting unbalanced games with new players.
    - I played with friends in GA and we created a party. The party was part in the squad (2 of us) and the rest out of the squad (the other 2), the next match neither was on the same squad but scattered in squads (but in the same team, hurray ¬¬ ), the next one started the same but in mid match we get in the same squad and we dont know how it happpened. We were RANDOMLY joinig the same squad :/
    - Fresh lobbies filled fast... and sometimes didnt.
    - The system did not took in account if a match was already balanced, it simply disperses players and creates new lobbys


    A LOBBY CREATION system IS NOT MATCHMAKING.
  • Why is this still on? Is anyone listening? Both here and Reddit are hating this... This is not wanted...
  • Why delete my post where I said the devs aren't listening to us on this forum?? They clearly are not on the match making fiasco. They think it's a success and there are almost nothing but negative feedback posts on this forum.
  • My two pennies worth:
    • Balance was better at times
    • Teams seemed to be shuffled? Not like before when you played a game and then ended up with different people. Is that on purpose?
    • Thrown into empty lobbies sometimes.
    • Sometimes half of both teams disappear and your left with only a few of the people you played with.
    • Game loading is slower.

    I really did like it when I experienced something to team shuffle like in BF1 but then I ended up playing as empire 4 times in a row so not sure if this is intended.
  • So now you restricted it to 5 maps? Hoth, Endor, Yavin 4, Tatooine and Death Star II. This is unacceptable, i bought this game to play every map. Stop this failure now.

  • In short....

    Most players hate EoR MM.

    I kept this message short to increase the likelihood of it being read.
    Somewhere between "the sky is falling" and "everything is awesome" lies the truth.
  • im surprised we havent heard anything from the devs yet....


    then again not really.
  • Crickets from Ben....
  • For GA, keep the Matchmaking button in case we want to find a new group. Focus on keeping games full. Otherwise, stop the rest of what you're doing. In no way are you going to find more balanced games. We want to be able to run the full circuit of maps. Repeating the same maps over and over, especially without even switching factions, is not fun.

    Someone forgot to turn off these test rotations after the weekend. Is anyone from DICE paying attention? I am not at all happy about having what is effectively the game turned into a live beta, but I am now more unhappy that you failed to stop it when you said it would end. This is absolutely poor management.
  • you know ive been reading over that tweet for a few now and my take of it is they care more about having servers full rather then how game play is effecting the enjoyment of the game.
