Increase the pop for better match making.

Is it working? Are you starting with more than 2 people now?

Div7 is still populated by about 3-4 players. Didn't change anything.

All the divisions are like that now. I mean, why play Solaris at all when you get QP games faster and earn more for doing them?

Why do they feel the need to fix things that aren't broken? I'm still seeing the same 3-4 people in div 4 and now if there's an odd number I have wait 6 minutes instead of 2. Good job pgI.

If it were Faction Play 6 minutes would actually quite nice considering the match lasts longer then 2 minutes.

Very true. With the increase in wait time, I am less inclined to hop onto Solaris for reward grinding.

Really the extra 1-2 minute on average killed it for you? Not the legging , the ac2 spam or mechs hiding from light mechs ? Haha

1 minute wait time, 2 minutes to kill or get killed, repeat. Thats what S7 was for me.

And I never faced a hiding light 'Mech.

So far I don't like the 3min waittime. It didn't gave me any better matches just longer waitting times.
Only thing that would give you better matches is more people in general but for that S7 has to draw in more attention.

If it stays like this Solaris is dead. I love to play some fast matches but i wont wait 3 minutes for a 1 minute match for sure.
I guess many people wont accect the waiting time, so there ll be even less players - RIP Solaris.

I prefer a fast death against a much better opponent than this.
Just tried to get a game and there where 1 person each in div 1 and 2, the other divisions were empty.

Its not the light mech who do the hiding. Take a light mech with some range weapons and you will find out fast :)


I only played 3 times today before work and each time i waited less than 1 minute. At night when i get off work the 3 minute counter doesn't even matter i normally been waiting 5+ minutes anyway.

Over all i dont like the way the game play is going. I dont care about the wait.

just waited 3 minutes 2 times to get wrecked by some ac2 anh great.

That change is horrible. Man they could have at least made some kind of poll before doing this.

Ahahah just waited 3 min but then the 4 others guys went on to a match and I got to wait another 3 min xD thx really I love wasting my time in a queue for a match that don't even last half that time, maybe think of a betterway to reward people ? like in other games, a mecha? its done in multiple games ( wot, wows ) there is actually a goal or a purpose to play it, it's not because of the matchmaking that ppl don't play S7 it's because it's pointless..

Just wrote them, if many people are doing this, who knows, perhaps it helps. My guess might be wrong, but i think we ll see solaris player numbers drop even further after that patch.
