Well I've just come back today after a break of about a year or so.
I've noticed a major graphics improvement and a new game mode. They've also altered the menu system quite a bit...which is taking some getting used to.
However, the worrying bit was trying to get a game in any mode...my favourite Onslaught and Deathmatch modes and even the new Conquest.
Waited 2-3 minutes but have been unable to get into any games. Had to settle for a few rounds of Proving Grounds. Also noticed the bots are a lot tougher than they used to be (even accounting for my rustiness). Definitely more challenging, but not the same as playing against real people.
I hate to ask this question, as I've seen it (and scoffed at it) on other game forums, but: is Dreadnought dying? I mean, it appears very few people are actually playing...
I noticed someone mentioned that a PvE campaign was in the works...or at least had been discussed. REALLY would like to see this (though it could be a moot point if the above is true).
Yeah, you'll have to wait more than 2-3 min for a game at this point, especially on PC. PS4 is doing better but still not good and its rare you get anything but Onslaught anymore.
Game has been on life support since the botched steam launch, and many single players left due to seal clubbing. The changes came too little too late.
I wouldnt expect anything beyond bug fixes and market updates beyond this point. Unless another dev comes in and takes over and ppurs a bunch of money in, dont expect more than that unfortunately.
As Skocknfunk said, even the forums are rather inactive anymore with long time regulars no longer posting.
