The answer to this is simple:

Queue times are a direct result of the beta player community's revolt against the shipyard update. Roll the update back and go back to the drawing board with progression and people will play again.

I know that I completely uninstalled due to this update and am heavily considering Fractured Space to get my giant spaceship combat fix.

Sadly I just downloaded Fractured Space and will be playing it to appease my Dreadnought fix. It's not that I wanted to, it's that I can no longer get a game in here and who knows when that will be remedied. I waited for 40 min today before exiting. and decided that I literally CANNOT play no matter how much I want to.

Don't get me wrong. I will jump back on here and play if I can get a game. Most likely I will still be here trying to find a game, just lurking in the shipyard soaking in the ambient sounds.

I much rather be in DN than FS!!! DN excels over that game in every way for me personally.

I would hope for GB that FS does not end up killing more of the user base here if people defect and end up liking FS enough to stay there. DN needs us to keep its development on track.

They are 2 different style games other than being capital ships, plus FS has MM issues of their own causing much disappointment, and they're in full release.

I believe that everything depends on the fact that there are just few players, and we play with different time zone.
Release many more keys and publicizing more, that's the way to fix (or the largely).

And since i'm writing, i point out that playing from Italy is quite inconvenient because of latency, i bet that the servers are far apart. I hope you also concerned about the server issue.

We're actually in the process of moving forward with an initiative to hopefully increase the player count. We're hoping this will help everyone's experience. Regardless, our teams are certainly on it and investigating.

Despite all the disappointment, Thank You for being so active in giving us feedback on this! Much appreciated!!!

BTW, as posted originally my main fleet was veteran with only one tier 3 ship causing my wait times over one hour.. I tried to do a recruit match with only one tier 2 ship in the fleet and that made me wait 20+ minutes before I discontinued.. My reasoning was that the issue is with too low a player base w/ higher tier ships in the veteran fleet but waiting that long for a tier 2 in recruit makes it appear to be something more than user base at least for me?

I should find a match much more easily using a tier 2 ship in recruit I would assume since more of a player base there?

Technically i assumed my Tier 2 in recruit would MM me into a recruit match or resort to forcing me into a veteran match given that the Tier 2 can play in both. Did not seem like it was going any faster, at least not in the 20 min I tried to wait.

Imo it is not the smartest move to try increasing the player count by heavy advertizing while the player's experience stays as bad as it is now. It would most probably be the better solution to roll back the update temporarily and rethink the whole thing.

I write this with my best intentions in mind because I care for DN.

Have not played once today..

Currently Waiting again for 1hr 20 min (80 Minutes) and counting.. Its a Friday 3pm PDT.. 6PM eastern Should be pretty prime for user base.

I'll let it keep going for testing purposes and get back to you

SERIOUSLY, ANYTHING WOULD BE BETTER FOR DN THAN THIS.. Even the way it was before this patch, sorry to say. I grinded through the lower tiers fleets against hero ships and made it to this T3 destroyer.. I never used anything but the standard ships and earned my way up. Some horrendous loses, but also many wins. Wasn't so bad at all for me at least.

I love this game! I am continuing to waste my time and endure this frustration hoping it helps remedy this somehow. I realized I would rather continue trying fruitlessly than go play something else. I'm dedicated to DN it appears. How much longer I can endure not playing and waiting and giving updates remains to be seen.

We appreciate everything guys, especially all of the testing and input. It's all incredibly useful information that will help our teams get an understanding as to what's going on and how to approach it. Matchmaking is a ridiculous beast, but with all of your help we can figure out what's right.

Your attentiveness and frequent responses gives me hope. It's all I have and I greatly appreciate it! I realized I have to look at this as much more than playing a game in its current state. Its about helping create something in the long run. Hopefully help make it better for everyone.

Wait for another 2-3 month for the next awesome 3.0!
Real money currency even less useful, T1 even less powerful, matching with invincible T5. You'll love it smile


Best proposal to put 2.0 in the right way. Please hear this guy dev https://www.greybox.com/dreadnought/en/forum/topic/30780/?page=3#post-71653
