    Is Multiplayer dead?

    Hey everybody,
    Don't know if anyone noticed that but multiplayer is basically dead (on PC). Very few players, I can only find few game modes (only free for all, takedown and sometimes racing). That must have something to do with matchmaking. I have this game since the release and it's so annoying that I didn't have a proper Capture The Flag match ever. I'd really like to see the bad matchmaking fix. This is such a good game and it's ruined by such a little thing.

    Anybody agrees?

    This is the first driver game on the next step of platforms so people may not be eager to play it or its not exciting/ interesting to play for a long time

    It has everything to do with the matchmaking. Even when I'm on steam with someone telling me to join a game it sometimes doesn't come up in search. about 9 times out of ten the search will throw me into hosting a new game I had no intention of playing- quite often a 4-players minimum game that I'll have no hope whatsoever of filling. I suspect it is only like that to save on server costs and hide the true number of players playing online. Much like every other game of that nature (notably ones like Battlestations Pacific), it only serves to make the whole game userbase look dead, whether it actually is or not.

    Server lists are a must. They are simply indispensable in a game that has online multiplayer.

    I would definitely play! The only reason I bought it was for multiplayer. But it crashes every time I try "Quick match", "Find public matches" and even "Tutorial" in the multiplayer menu.

    Hi aidinabedi, have you contacted Technical Support about this? the link is in my signature.

    Multiplayer crashes is a known issue, but this sounds like a different issue.
