Where has everyone gone?

★★★★ Novice

As of late it seems more and more difficult to go in to a mission and actually have one or two other players in mission with me.  I am currently trying to complete Mathias line to craft my shield.  I went in to one mission, and had one other player, and we made it, but then when I hit the "triple Threat"  I was al by myself, so I left and restarted, again all by myself, so I did it solo.  However the next mission is the one where I have to fight 3 titans, so more people would be helpful.  I guess I might have to solo it in easy if things keep going this way.

I fear that in a month or so people will only have the option to solo the game as if the trend continues the place will be deserted...... Sad.....

I am unsure if it is just since the patch but when I go into a GM2 stronghold, not a pickup, I am quite often now having to catch-up with an already existing group.  Especially it seems in Tyrant Mines.

 

It isn't a problem but is it odd.

Actually thinking more about this issue, they could come up with an option where you coup opt to go in to a mission with a AI like in wildlands if no one else is available during matchmaking.  Not the best option, but better than soloing it.....

Hmm you on console because I havent had any problems joining a random game with three other people in it on the PC version. I have twenty some people on my friend's list and they all seem active. I always get the max amount of coins from the alliance every week since it released.

Out of 27 people I know that were playing the game at release, including me, only 1 friend still plays about 1 or 2 days a week.

26 of us are playing The Division 2, and the one friend still playing Anthem, does not play TD2.

Maybe TD2 killed Anthem? It did in my community.

I wouldn't say td2 killed it. Some may have switched to it though. I bought td2, and I just can't get into it.  Just a constant duck and cover, shoot, dodge grenade, repeat. Boring game play for me.

 

On xbox, I don't have any issues having full games with randoms.  On pc  I can't get more than one player in my game doing the story missions , but that's on hard difficultly and low level.  It's more indicative of not a lot of new players joining  than it is of a declining player base overall.

 

Just my own anecdotal experiences

Frustration with a lack of new content and a lack of progression is the cause. Division 2 probably pulled some people away but, this state of this game has done more to push players away.

I had about 10-15 xbox friends playing, NONE are now playing anymore because there are more bugs than there is end game content... the game itself is the issue and other games like The Division 2 are the solutions.

Being a 776 Colossus, I want to play GM3 on Legendary Contracts / Missions / Strongholds but Bioware / EA has gone nowhere fast and lost too many players now and whilst some people who “don’t work for Bioware / EA” might try to say otherwise, we are the ones having to solo expeditions or quit.
