Why is it so hard to find a Beast Mode match?

#1 Posted by LordXavierBritish (6319 posts) -

I've been sitting here for like 10 minutes.
Watching this god damn game sit there and try to find a match.
And attempting to join 20 different matches.
And every time it doesn't work it has to find 20 more matches.
And when those don't work it has to find 20 more matches.
And when those don't work I blow my fucking brains out.

Lack of teams fighting to the death means no one wants to play it

No issues on my end. It takes longer than the other playlists but it still works.

Just played my first string of beast mode matches
It does take longer to connect but holy shit is it worth the wait. 
Everything Jeff said about it on the TNT is on point. It's short and just as it gets good and you unlock levels and new locusts, it's over.
The centipede is a blast and will basically clean house as long as you keep the COGs in front of you so they can't shoot the tail. 
Being the berserker and just going berserk is just beautiful when you're on the right level. I played the Berserker on mercy and it's small enough yet open enough where everything is just a blur once you get into the zone. Played with it on trenches and it wasn't as fun due to the tight narrow ways

I finally got into a match.
With one other dude.

I have been trouble getting into all gametypes but the casual mode. In fact I have yet to play anything else.

I'm occasionally finding difficulties with joining any kind of game type. It either takes me 2 seconds or 10 minutes to get a game.

I think it's the only mistake with horde and beast mode at this point, there is no hop in hop out like the quick matches in the versus mode.  You end up having to wait for a full party which takes a long ass time.

Is the difficulty level the key? Because I can't join ANYTHING on Hardcore.

Replace "dudes" with "bears" ;)

Or me. Me and my group got through Insane difficulty in 11 minutes. I'm now number 370 in the world on Checkout on Insane difficulty. If you want to play, hit me up. GT is MariachiMacabre.
