Are not as many people playing anymore?

7 replies 189 views Edited Dec 24, 2012

What the title says.  I ask this because it's taken so much longer to find matches than it used to, both in Ranked FFA and Quick Match.

 

I know this topic's been made a lot already, but I think I've literally spent more total time at the "Searching for Opponents..." screen than I have actually fighting in matches.  Nowadays it can take upwards of one minute to connect to opponents; that may not sound like much, but if you actually count 60 seconds when waiting for a match, it can be pretty grating when you're trying to get back in right away.

 

For some reason it does this more often on Vita, but it's a problem on PS3 as well.  I should also note that I have a pretty decent internet connection and I've connected to matches faster in the past.

 

Does anyone know why it's been taking longer and longer to find opponents lately?

same. i usually wait about 15 seconds, then back out and try again and i find a match right away. so if you haven't done that, try it.

Oh, I actually do that almost every time I enter a match, heh.  Occasionally it does find a match faster, but even then it doesn't work sometimes, no matter whether or not I back out and try again.
