Haha I was being hyperbolic and messing around I only send them 1 message on it per day but since you said they are aware its in demand thats enough for me to wait without being obnoxious all it takes is a q&a and being direct about whats going on all I seen them say on it is "what kind of donuts do i get" a month ago, wasn't reassuring
"As far as a solo mode, we do not have any info regarding plans for adding that at the moment."
How could you not have any info? It's one of the most complained about issues in this game (besides hackers on PC). The sad truth of this all is that Respawn created this problem, and now there is no info on dealing with it?
Let me expand a bit on that statement. I have come to realize that a huge part of this issue (lack of actual team play) is due to "stats". What's the most displayed stat? KILLS. Since Respawn put an emphases on this one stat, players now just want too hot drop, get 2 or 3 kills and move on to the next game. Because of this stat, players will quit out if they can't use their "Character", cause then they can't add to their KILL count.
want a very simple solution to hold the game over till Respawn gets around to giving us Solo's? Add 2 permanent stats to a players card, "Total Games Played" and "Total Wins".. When I say TOTAL, I mean a combined total using every character. This MIGHT change the mindset a bit. Players would now be a bit embarrassed for others to see "8,163,781,623" Kills, but yet only 4 wins.. That embarrassment MIGHT encourage them to play to win, instead of playing for kills. And by "playing to win" I mean actually using strategy, actually looking for places to land to best serve the goal of the game, actually playing as a TEAM.
Now do not get me wrong, this is no substitute for actual SOLO mode. This is just something to hold the community over till RESPAWN gets their priorities in order and gives us SOLO's. Personally I LOVE new weapons, new characters and I very much look forward to a new map, but I would be just as happy having all of that postponed for a month if I was able to play SOLO's.
So please, have a talk with someone higher up and really let them know our dissatisfaction with the current state of this game. I, like millions of others, do not want too see this game become another PUBG. A game that had a lot of promise, but the company didn't take the community concerns seriously. Which resulted in players leaving to go to BLACKOUT, FORTNITE and now APEX. At some point someone is going to come up with "The Next Big Thing", wouldn't it be better to keep us, the players, addicted to APEX, rather then seeing us leave?
I have stopped playing for about 1 and a half weeks now. I did not buy the battle pass ( would have if I was still playing , even though its crap) . The only reason why I stopped playing and did not give respawn my 10 dollars is because there are no solos. I will come back when there are solo's . I will buy the next battle pass if there are solo's . This is assuming I even care about this game in 3 months. I am sure I am not the only person , respawn has already lost alot of money by not adding solo's at this point.
On a side note I am sure all the " go play something else" kids are happy that people like me are leaving and forgetting about this game . Soon they will complain the population is dropping and all they play against are hackers . Funny thing about common sense is ..... its not that common.
I said "One of the most", not the only complaint. And you are right, SOLO won't fix most of the list you gave, but It will give decent players that are here to win the ability to have a fair chance at doing so. Right now, 3v1 is not a fair chance.
I personally don't see how SOLO's would create new problems, with the exception of Camping. But to be honest, I would accept campers if it was a SOLO mode. Not that I would like it, but I would accept it.
As for the "Price", Time and Resources, those are already wasted. So where is the difference?
Believe me if I didn't blindly buy the battle pass before really looking into it, I would have already gone back to Blackout. However I did buy it (my own mistake), so I plan on accomplishing it, then moving on to Blackout.
But the reality is "Not Playing" is not going to wake them up. See, by not playing what will happen is WE, the players that are protesting, would be fixing at least 3 of their issues for them.
1) Less players means less complaints about SOLO's
2) Less Players means Less complaints about Crashes
3) Less Players means less Lag and the complaints that comes with it.
So by doing that, we would basically be giving them a reason to turn a blind eye to those issues.
I think you have completely missed the point to ALL of these posts related to SOLO mode.. That point is, THERE IS NO TEAM BASED GAME, not unless you have a premade squad.
i dont favor in solo mode. i like this team based.
Then don't play solo mode when it comes out simples. We aren't asking for group mode to be removed.
The issue isn't that players like this feel they will be forced to play SOLO, it's that good players will leave SQUADS, in turn forcing them to have to become better since no one is there to carry them. And let's face facts, those that argue against SOLO's have NO intentions of getting better.
