Still waiting...

Postby realfakealex » Fri 30 May 2014 16:48

Now, I don't see this topic anywhere, perhaps, I'm blind but anyhow.

Let's talk about the thing that we all go through when we play Wargame.


The Lobby, now a days, you play with a group for 3 people and you set up a simple game, like;

3v3 conquest
Bloody Ridge
3k start
750pt
40min

Then you wait 20mins for a game, finally, someone joins, hooray! 2 more to go! Another two quickly joins, launch game, timer at 3sec and someone leaves. The bastard!

Looks on lobby for another 3v3 game, preferably vs a team, finds one.
That team bans you from their lobby or they play on 38th parallel TD no time limit!
You're back to square one.

But this time, you try putting it on destruction!?!
But you're still waiting for a game.


Now, what do some of you people do to get around this? Practically playing a 4v4 is almost impossible sometimes.
Reset stats?
Change names?
Post on forums in favour of matchmaking system?
Go back and see if you can get a game in ALB quicker? (which we did once and was able to join one instantly)
Go on to some teams TS and ask for a game?
Play Goat simulator in the background while waiting?


Also, on a side note, can we have the 10v10 button and have it like ALB?
A strange list full of empty games can't be good....


Currently I've finished writing up this post and still haven't been able to find a game...

I feel for you man, people doing this all the time are slowly driving me mad. Also, I play a lot of TD no time and people sometimes get pissed yet I don't bait and switch yet somehow i'm *explicit* for openly enjoying this game mode.

I have found that Playing WRD is a really good way to catch up on tv series i missed, or actually getting work done, when I'm trying to procrastinate.

The major problem is that everyone is allowed to see others peoples profiles, *Hey, he has 100 victories and 20 loses, i'm not going to join".

In ALB, if you don't have a shiny insigna you could fill a lobby real quick. Now, they fixed one thing, and broked another. lol

Or, you know, you could play with friends.

You can play every game with different account and different levels/stats if you want/have enough smurf accounts AND then come back to your original account(i know some people who had 200 win streaks in W:EE by doing this routine) .It just copy pasting,nothing else,like everything in life.

Or OP could host a game and play as RED ;).

But really, playing RED brings in players a lot faster than you would playing BLU. It goes like this quite often:

Good stats host on RED. The initial players who join may be prompted to go on RED because of your experience (although they may be heavy BLU players).

Players who join after RED is filled will more than likely stay (some get scared of team stacks, but not that often when they have a chance to play BLU) because they're confident that BLU can beat RED under general circumstances.
