We got your post on the Steam discussion forums, but just to reiterate:
Thanks for your feedback! It does sound frustrating to have a string of defeats, I understand what you mean. We are confident the move to Steam will significantly improve some of the matchmaking frustrations in the Beta currently. With a larger pool of players of similar skill the matchmaker will more accurately be able to match them together.
We will be making meaningful balance adjustments in the coming updates prior to launch that will help with the wide score margins as well, as some of the more exploitable ship builds are being returned.
My favourite - "Player pool" excuse. I've heard it sooo much times.
Ignoring the problem and waiting it to fix itself - that is basically all what you did past two years.
There's not a single reason why you couldn't improve matchmaking.
Full t4 team against t3. Ignored.
Several high ranked players in one team against none in other. Ignored.
If your MM can find enough players to fill one match, is it a big deal to equally distribute ship tiers and player ranks? What does "player pool" have to do with that anyway?
And, of course, your precious full stacked premade squads farming solo random players. Ignored.
I suppose you are not even familiar with this problems, because majority of your feedback are coming from premade players, who never play single, enjoying being superior and have endless win streaks.
Of course they will never admit there's a major MM issue, because fixing it will ruin their personal comfort. These hypocrites just tell everyone to GIT GUD, MAKE UR OWN SQUAD, label any feedback TOXIC, blame leavers (ofc this is not because its literally impossible to win against them), and tell developers sweet lies about how great their game is.
I cant even tell how much of my friends left this game because of that. Seeing how your team is basically doomed from the start of every match is not a motivating factor for single players to keep playing and become more skilled.
And again you did nothig. Though it was enough high ranked squads in the game to forbid premades from farming single players teams. Even in the cost of some waiting time for squads, it could greatly improve matchmaking quality for LOTS other players, which in their turn, could have stayed in the game for a longer time, gain experience, and form their own squads.
But your logic was broken then and is broken now. You expect more players to come and improve game quality, when its basically works opposite way - you need to improve quality to get more players. Steam isnt your saviour. Players will come and leave beacuse of your poor matchmaking of single match, which has noting to do with player pool.
As for me, my community and friendlist of former 130+ players - it is too obvious. That's why its only 2 our active players left at this moment.
Keep up the good work. You are great at ignoring problems and making your fanboy community happy.
Expect them and your "engineers" with counterarguments to this post, any negative feedback is a trigger for them to come and make anyone who left it look stupid and unexperienced. Please guys, do not bother answering. Its my honest feedback as a gratitude for all fun times with this game. And probably last message, because i stopped playing a long ago and doubt that things will get any better in future.
