I discontinued the “problem with BR” post because it was raising quite a debate whilst I wasn’t really participating. let’s recap the urgent problem of Enlisted now as I predicted before. The BR on its own sounds like a good idea, only if it really really makes the game fair; The thing is that the current matching system is broken and left so many loopholes that people try to abuse. You can’t mend them. Give it up. The solution lies in another direction.
Be reminded that low tier BRs are mixed with higher ones, and you can’t really find peace using ur beloved bolt action rifles of BR1, because most players are within 2-4 range of BRs, and that leads to dominating amound of mixed rooms that frequently conscripts low tier equipped players as cannon fodders. I have personally tried BR5 Germany and BR1USSR, in either case there’s no such thing as “balance”
USSR BR1: I have a queue of BR1 squads, and I’m pretty sure I should be facing low tier players. But I often encounter Panzers with 75mm Guns with superior protection, How does that sound balanced?
Germany BR5: I drive TigerII H and I have been “invincible” for a shameful long time. I rarely meet top ussr tanks like IS2, most of the time just d35-85dt and even t34-76 or kv1.
It’s not just about equipment. This is a population problem I have told you before, that the matching mechanism cannot find equivalent players due to existing population issue (in a viscous circle) while the system tries to fill rooms with real players even though they are from lower tiers. You either suffer by using low BR queues, or make people suffer by using high BR queues. Neither of these two options make the game sustainable. I have told you before that this would happen. You wouldn’t listen… Here’s another prediction: Many people are uninstalling the game, expect a HUGE decline in active player number when the paratrooper even ends. I personally know quite a few of them who complaint that the game is too intense and did so, as they are thrashed by elite players spamming flamethrowers, kamikaze, grenades, you name it. Ordinary players suffer.
The only solution is to make sure that
1: people are only against ±1 BR opponents (to say thr least. it’s not my favourite solution but it’ll do)
2: Balance real player amount with bots (btw the benefit is that noobs can have some fun with them.)
3: Stop matching individual players with teamed up players. It is horrible.
4: Make the game less intense or PVP oriented. Better K/D for everyone=More Enjoyable for everyone=More bots should get killed instead of real players.
Understand that the urgent problem isn’t with equipments or BR itself. It’s about population and how players try their best to gain advantages if you stress them with intense fights…They in turn stress others. too much grinding drives players away.
P.S. Don’t call me a bot farmer with despise. I can farm real players but that’s exactly the problem. People are GETTING farmed, is that fun?
