I really enjoy this game and wish it was a bit more popular. I actually bought a copy of the Xbox One version after I had such a hard time finding matches on PC after the DLC came out and I'd gone back to check it out. Unfortunately I wasn't having much better luck on XBONE. It seems very dependent on what time of day it is when I play.
They changed a lot about how the matchmaking works after the first DLC got released.
Prior to that i also had trouble getting into matches on PC, even getting a vanilla Attrition round could take up to 15 minutes, sometimes during night no rounds would be going at all and getting into the DLC maps (by selecting modes on them) took even longer, sometimes it even had been impossible and you could only play vanilla maps due to a lack of players on the DLC maps.
But since they changed how matchmaking works, it's gotten way better. Now it's matching between regions and expanding the search radius faster, it's also breaking up stacked teams and joining an the vanilla Attrition playlist will still match you into rounds/groups with access to the DLC maps.
Never had to wait longer than a minute to get into a round since then and i actually get to play some of the DLC maps from time to time.
It's what i actually like about this game: Respawn still cares about the problems of the game and is doing a great job fixing them.
The last update falls into the same vain, logged in and had been kind of surprised to see a "blackmarket".
Of course i expected the worst, some kind of real money hook in there, but no real money involved at all. It's basically a system so maxed out players can keep on farming for rare burn cards, neat! Sure they can still add in some real-money transactions into that system, but merely tiering it's release like that wins already a ton of "goodwill" points from me for Respawn.
