Noticed the population drop in the last two weeks. Matchmaking for rating and quickmatch tends to take longer and longer. As i'm writing this it's just me and 3 other people waiting in a lobby for the last half hour. Starting to think the western release was done to save the game over in the east (since it isn't split servers). How was the population over on the Asian version of the game before the western release?

Also getting failed matchmaking errors significantly more often since the last patch.

Try answer these questions first:

1. What rating are you at now?

Western players who played this game a couple of months ago were mostly already at C or higher rating, while Asian/JP players were at A- or higher.

2. What hour did you play?

Remember that this game were mostly played by Asian/JP players, so you need to match their time in order to get most of the players. Usually players starts logging in at 18:00 - 24:00 JST (GMT +9), which is after worktime.

I never had any problems at A rating and at those times, except for Quick Matches, which usually were pretty barren at the first place.

I play throughout the day, night. I keep odd hours. Typically i'm playing when they're awake out East, and I play during evenings out on the east coast, which makes it prime time for those on the westcoast (3 hour difference). Yet it was just the weekend and you'd expect the population to be bustling on these two days (mostly Fri/Sat for USA, since they use Japan's time zone and shut off the weekend bonus while we still have Sunday to go).

Ground rating A- and space rating about to hit B-.

Maybe the higher tier population is just too shallow - though i've still seen it when we get paired with C rating players so the bridge at least allows for 2 grades (and perhaps additional with the + and - ratings). I dunno. Perhaps it's just the matching system in general that's really screwy, with the ratings difference causing more issues on top of them.

Imo they need to redo that whole system to bring the population closer in line with each other --- or at the very least disqualify ratings from quick match, since QM doesn't effect ratings.

another factor is connection the higher the easier you ll get a match

agree quickmatch should be without rank matching

Just got home from work and booted up to get the dailies done.

Sitting in the 200 (space) quickplay lobby for the past 28 minutes. Still 8/10 players. I guess the novelty wore off and people are reacting to the gacha system. Getting roflstomped by higher tier suits in unrestricted and catching the scent of whales, perhaps.

Hope the game doesn't become an afterthought so soon after porting west. Yeah, it looks like a PS3 game, and yearh, the gacha system is pretty evident given we weren't started off on equal footing, and are playing with Asian players with several months of unlocks already in tow. The other thing is that free players that have played consistently since it released in the west are now entering earning categories where they are/have been able to accumulate enough key mods to bring the pain. New players just joining now will be getting hit much harder than they can. Doesn't exactly explain why the 200 category, a more even-keel bracket, is now seeing less activity.

i'm not having any trouble getting matches, i just started recently and i'm having a blast, i've had some really exciting matches, though most of them have been one-sided curbstomp battles one way or the other.

I have zero trouble getting matches, space battles are just not as popular. Unless it's a daily mission to play 2 of them, space rooms will 100% of the time always take longer to get going compared to a ground room.

There, the bolded ones are the main culprit.

Not only you played on a quick match, which were already not as popular like rating, but also in the Space maps. Also, you're playing in the weekday morning JP/Asia time, where most people either work or doing their activities.

Go play rating matches if you wanted a better player pools, since people were mostly choose rating compared to quick matches if they played solo.
