Its getting more difficult to find enough players to fill a room on the ps3 mp. The americans seem to be sufering more with something they call the dead zone, this starts from about 23.00gmt. Has anyone got any ideas how to keep the site populated. Maybe giving away the fortunes pack might help. The wait to even part fill a room can be half an hour. I host games on ranked between 13.00 to about 20.00 most days and have noticed a drop in new players. There was a big influx of players when the game was free for a limited time, even the player maps seem to be empty or is this just natural wind down as the new game release gets close. Any thoughts anyone ?
Not sure, I *generally* dont have a problem filling matches that I host. I live in California, so maybe the timing is just right when I play?
Yes it seems to be slowing down again. I believe giving the Fortunes pack away for free would give it a major boost up intil FC3's release . Unfortunately Ubisoft is still trying to make money on something that has virtually made them no money over the past 4 or 5 years. They are bundling the Fortunes Pack along with the downloadable version of FC2
As a player match host I have alot of friends that I can invite and they join. And it usually gets full pretty quick. There has definitely been a dip in players though generally. I've noticed alot more rage quitters too - when I only have 5 or 6 guys in my match I usually let them kill me a few times until the place fills up with full teams - they just quit if I keep killing them. It used to be the case that the match was full and players would stay on for hours with the same host - now it seems you get to the lobby for the next match and half the players quit - either because of their scores or they just play a couple of games and then do something else. Either way its not looking good.
