20-30 mins.... what?

Classic was dead and although 20-30 minutes maybe a exaggeration when I had a party of diverse nationalities it could take upto 15 minutes to find a game.

@IzunaShisui I saw one with a positive KDR. But most are punching air and standing still. It's funny how many people play CoD and come over here pressing Square after firing the weapon Smiley Very Happy

I see them a lot in Plunder & TDM the few times I've played

Even though quite a few people who own the disc are playing as F2P to take advantage of low levels + match making.

I see a coupe F2Pers each match (even with DLC!). I friend them and send them a message of encouragement. Want them to feel welcomed and just have a good time. Then they will be more likely to stick around.

That is no exageration as I would let the game sit there trying to get me into a game and I would go off and do other things or bring my laptop over and crank out some work emails if I was working from home.  The wait time for Classic was so bad a few months ago that I stopped playing UC3.

 

I think there was actually a match making problem with the game.  I would often times "find" 8-9 players and then it would drop all the players and then start searching again.

 

I just started playing again this week.  So maybe the problem was resolved a month or two ago.  But a few months ago, it was TERRIBLE.
