That was in response to someone re AS
As i said before re Multiplayer I can get Random MPC games with mixed results re time trying, sometimes a lot of waiting & sometimes pretty quick, just like it use to be on Flash
Sorry to go way back but, although the conversation has continued in simililar vein, this post seems most relevant to the point(s) I want to make.
I've not tried to play the new game since flash closed so I need to acknowledge your greater experience of this, but still :-)
Certainly when looking for a random on flash there was sometimes a wait, sometimes it even didn't work, and that is the same now. Surely that's meaningless though, the question is how long is the wait and how often is it unsuccesful, have these changed significantly?
I think it must have, the reasons being posts in the forum and simply there are less people available to play.
I don't know how many are now playing through downloading the app from wgt, on Steam lets say there's an average of 186 on site. Of these some will not be playing (forums, watching, practice or whatever), the majority will be playing another format, some (most?) that are playing AS will be doing so with friends or generally in pre arranged games (similar with MPC). I can't imagine that leaves many "randoms" to find.
Persumably there are more from the app. I don't fully know the difference with what we knew on flash from seeing people were green but I do understand it's different and I wonder why. If it was the same people would get a good feel of how many folk were playing as compared to flash simply by looking at their list and remembering how it was before.
MPC will be a bit easier than AS, for obvious reasons, but the same still applies.
