At the risk of sounding like I'm trolling, why is it just so atrocious?

The auto-targeting is terrible.
The loot system is the worst I've ever seen, including Vanilla D3 and Destiny
No Keyboard options makes zero sense. WHY can't I type to people????
Lots of lag makes revives particularly life-threatening if someone has poor latency.
Hit-boxes are unresponsive
Only 3 maps >.>

I mean, there's not like a single player benefit for doing MP, is there? As it stands it's so underwhelming, I don't even get it.

BioWare was forced to include because EA says all future games must have MP in them or something.
Playing Baldur's Gate Trilogy right now.

yeah I tend to agree that the MP is pretty bad

Its bad because they tried to make the multiplayer like ME3's but failed to make the combat not garbage like ME3.

Ironically enough I think the multiplayer would've been much better with DA2's combat.

Are there even plans to fix it, or make it more relevant or anything?

I mean it just seems so half-assed in it's current incarnation that I don't really grasp the reason to play it at all. It seems like they want people to spend RL money on it, but who would...? It's so terrible! haha

100% this.

Because it was outsourced to a different development team, presumably one who was willing to work cheap. Tacked on multiplayer is always a coin flip at best. Sometimes it's decent, but it's no surprise when things go wrong and the result is rubbish.
And with that...pow! I'm gone!

I had far more fun with the multiplayer than I did with the campaign. :p

But yeah, it could use some tweaks. I'd love to see it get more on the quality of ME3's multiplayer, simply with a better loot system (give us level based chest items at least).

True, the combat in this game is complete crap. It's amazingly even worse than Kingdoms of Amalur's mindless hack-n-slash system.

What do you find enjoyable about MP then

The whole co-op survival aspect. The combat's crap, but it's still fun to try and work with other players to overcome the AI.

It's why I love games like Killing Floor.
