The level of rage QQ here is getting tiresome. The community expresses it’s anger, S7 validates the complaints and says they are working on it…and the nag-fest beatdown over the EXACT same issue that they just said they would fix continues for thread after thread, post after post…needlessly.
Matchmaking was our #1 complaint. S7 has stated in other threads that 2v2 accounts for about 25% of all matches. With a small development team, that means they have to triage their issues. It makes sense that they would fix 1v1 first. They’ve said they’re going to fix 2v2 and they’ve made good on everything else they said they’d do. That’s good enough for me. They’ve acknowledged that the current card/scrap system needs adjustments. I fully expect that it will take a few months to fix some of the unforeseens and things that didn’t make it in on the first update. How many AAA game titles from big companies (cough, Bioware, cough) have rolled out incomplete games with huge development teams and millions in production $$$? Yet we expect a handful of people to move mountains overnight on a shoestring budget.
It’s disingenuous for us to scream the sky is falling and that we need a change, then turn around and scream about the change, too. It becomes a “WTF does everybody want” moment. My grandfather used to say, in response to incessant whining, “You’d bitch if you were hung with a new rope.” I think that’s applicable here. Those of you that are regulars on the forums know that I’m not a F2P player and that I have no problem voicing my displeasure, but trust me, this update isn’t the apocalypse promised in the Book of Revelation. The 1v1 matchmaking is great. S7 hit it out of the park on this. They’ve shown us what they can do. How about giving them credit for this and some breathing room to tackle the economy and 2v2? In the mean time, let’s provide CONSTRUCTIVE feedback, suggestions on fixes and a little patience. I’m confident S7 will get there.
