I really don´t understand some things and somehow I´m a bit disappointed. Maybe I had to many expectations and ideas what you could do with this game. So I made a quick brainstorming list on a few things regarding the match making and teamplay.
Why isn´t there a Private Mode where only friends can join in? [EDIT: Seems to be a bug for me/friends]
Today we kicked 6 persons out of our game because I had an disconnect and wanted to rejoin.
Why aren´t we rewarded for teamplay? I mean besides wining the game.
I loved the sound of helping another friend when an enemy wants to stab his back in Vermintide 1.
Why aren´t there rewards for don´t letting u´re team get surrounded?
Why doesn´t the game helps out players to make strong teams?
I mean like getting players to gether speaking the same Language
Think of talents where players benefit from helping friends and staying near them.
What´s with buttons to quickly tell someone to stay close or so. Yeah I get that the characters are speaking. But what about hitting a button and a little visual effect for friends so they notice it. As far as I can tell people don´t hear on what the characters are saying except for when they talk about specials.
Why don´t u show how much someone helped players for like saving their backs or so in the end screen after a level?
In my opinion you could do you´re work in balancing and just upgrate some matchmaking and teamplay mechanics and you would have an better game when it comes to fun and random players fighting together.
But now I want to have the match making mechanics from v1 since the were quite nice.
Sadly I can say that I´ve no longer fun in playing Kruber as he isn´t as flexible as he was in V1. Like he could do a decent amount of damage and really help others out. Now im either a super tanky foot knight, which is good for helping but doesn´t do a thing if randoms aren´t into it and if I play the Merc I´m more of a CC and not that much of an tank, when it comes to champion and legend (played not that often).
I loved Kruber for being the heavy dmg dealer (yeah elf was allways high, and siena was quite good as well) and a nice tank pushing all enemys so friends can attack them. But now I have the feeling that I´ve to play V1 for it and this role to be lost atm. Huntsman is alright but not my thing. Instead I feel pushed to the dwarf IB and since I don´t want to play the dwarf and have his ranged weapons…
I also think it´s not about the classes been fully wrong designed. It feels like ranged is to OP.
So Sienna, elf and dwarf often spam their ranged and what happens is that i don´t hit anythink and they waste their attacks on enemys i would otherwise kill with my melee instead.
Not to mention the ff I take and the spam of why i die so frequently. I really don´t want to point out any more that the hit me in the back like a f***ing thousend times…
I hope that my text is quite understandable. I know that some people think and feel different, but I thought of posting it here, because I´m now thinking of having a break for like 2month and than hitting back on this game to have a look if anything is better than befor. Like the game isn´t finished when it released and i know it wasn´t supossed to be, but I really don´t enjoy it when playing with Kruber and/or with most of the random players.
Often they don´t write anything nor speaking english, which is terrible for teamplay.
Ahhh and also I´ve never heard anybody speaking through the mic. Is it an broken feature?
