While I agree with a lot of things you said, there is an underlying issue that causes this: a small player base. There just arent enoigh people playing right now to correct the match making issue. People complained about too long queue times so they are foeced to create unbalanced matches. This causes less experienced players to quit as its not enjoyable to get crushed by a squad.

Only in small part. The bigger problem is the lack of a working team balancer. So you get those battles with all the solo high rank players on the same team as the high level squad, and all the low rank players on the other. That has nothing at all to do with player base and could be fixed right now (and should have been years ago).

I can only agree with most of what you said. Matchmaking does really weird things most of the time. But it's not always lvl 50 players squadding up, it's the matchmaker putting together imbalanced teams. I assume the MM only tries to balance teams by W/L ratio, not looking at available modules/officer briefings at all, resulting in uneven teams regarding experience and gear. I can only speak for myself, though, ive spent more than 99% of my time in this game flying solo.

Lopsided games have become the norm, and I've lost interest, which is sad because the game play is great. But Only winning one game in 5 because you are facing squads or the game just stacks ships one side over the other is not.

Lol, you aren't playing anymore but still deny my Carriers?

If I have enough of Dreadnought, I focus on other games and return later on.

What's that got to do with anything?

Why are you so hostile?

I know that I cannot handle critic that perfectly, and sometimes I am a dīck, yes. I don't want a conflict wIth you.

Regarding the state of the game: T4 and T5 grind have to be improved somehow. Maybe a little T3 grind buff too.

This matchmaking phenomena, combined with meagre XP/credits for a loss AND the long grinds led me to uninstall this game, too.

With a player base this size, squads are cancerous. Forget the XP, there is no fun to be had in a lopsided win or loss.

Dreadnought isnt a casual game, so you must learn and adapt. Player rank doesnt affect your skill. Learn to play, get your own squad, and win. This game is all about teamplay, so its obvious and logical that squads win more games than random solo players. If you dont want to do that - its your problem, not game's.

Ha-ha-ha... How is it used to talk with pocket fanboys? "You just have not enough skill, play better." And this is the only answer to you.

I have screen shot after screen shot matches where one side is "stacked" with more skilled players than the other. I could have all the skill in the world, I'm not going to beat 5 highly skilled guys.

As for lillith, with out casual players f2p game die off quickly. Sure f2p games have the "wales" what give the most monetary support to the game, but casual players are the ones more likely to pay to buy XP to catch up. Also casual players are the bulk population of every game. Wanting the game to be just for the "pro elite" will end the game quickly.
