  1. [00:51:18.965] HiRezErez: This patch is specifically designed to cater to more casual gameplay, ranked modes will come back soon for the hardcore players
  2.  
  3. [00:52:42.976] HiRezErez: Sorry, those other patches did not hold players :(
  4.  
  5. [00:53:19.055] HiRezErez: rank will probably have no chicken, single rarity system, etc
  6.  
  7. [00:54:44.099] HiRezErez: we had 90K players because we had a huge inflow of people, not because they were staying
  8.  
  9. [00:56:06.617] HiRezErez: If we get casual player to stay just a bit more, it will grow. Most of our players come from consoles also
  10.  
  11. [00:56:46.132] HiRezErez: actually deathmatch reduced how long casual players were staying
  12.  
  13. [00:56:54.167] HiRezErez: not sure why, but those are the numbers
  14.  
  15. [00:57:30.793] HiRezErez: The first few patches only had game fixes, the casual players were still all leaving
  16.  
  17. [00:58:17.430] HiRezErez: Solo Q actually made it much worse, players are joining solo, getting killed, and leaving
  18.  
  19. [00:58:52.102] HiRezErez: players are supposed to drop one loot item (and lose it when they revive)
  20.  
  21. [01:01:56.123] HiRezErez: That patch reduced the casual player even more
  22.  
  23. [01:02:40.703] HiRezErez: First, casual players must like the game or nothing else matters
  24.  
  25. [01:03:13.069] HiRezErez: usually 90% of the players
  26.  
  27. [01:05:31.940] HiRezErez: good players kill everyone, gets the better players the best loot and they snowball
  28.  
  29. [01:05:44.666] HiRezErez: In ranked mode that will change
  30.  
  31. [01:06:04.104] HiRezErez: Ranked mode will probably have all same quality loot, no chickens
  32.  
  33. [01:06:38.628] HiRezErez: Even when we cleaned up issues, the conversion of causual players sucked
  34.  
  35. [01:07:13.654] HiRezErez: hardcore solo, no chicken
  36.  
  37. [01:07:30.266] HiRezErez: you can't put more then 4 on a team for that reason
  38.  
  39. [01:08:17.848] HiRezErez: yes, but not as easy as 4 pros vs 4 person teams
  40.  
  41. [01:08:40.202] HiRezErez: after we test the two slots we will decide
  42.  
  43. [01:09:15.494] HiRezErez: If you want the game to do well, get a 6 person team and teach them how to play
  44.  
  45. [01:10:31.487] HiRezErez: we are adding a tutorial
  46.  
  47. [01:11:09.157] HiRezErez: well, that's why the tutorial is not done yet
  48.  
  49. [01:11:51.171] HiRezErez: The servers will be readjusted soon
  50.  
  51. [01:12:27.654] HiRezErez: probably about a week before they are put back with ranked changes
  52.  
  53. [01:13:41.331] HiRezErez: I know it's hard to understand many of our changes unless you also had the supporting data
  54.  
  55. [01:15:54.115] HiRezErez: We had to go through this same exercise with Paladins and Smite, we had a lot of hate for a while but they did well at the end.
  56.  
  57. [01:17:16.808] HiRezErez: Paladins and Smite support a company with over 400 people, not sure why you thing they are not doing well (record year for both)
  58.  
  59. [01:18:06.483] HiRezErez: The kills are supposed to drop one item
  60.  
  61. [01:20:15.290] HiRezErez: Well, it will take a few days to see if this patch changes anything for the casual players and we will make changes accordingly
  62.  
  63. [01:22:03.777] HiRezErez: We have 10,000 new people join the game each day. If they stay around the game succeeds, if they don;t it fail. That conversion has to work. Those are the casual players.
  64.  
  65. [01:22:57.643] HiRezErez: (not how many people we get in, how many stick around)
  66.  
  67. [01:23:17.201] HiRezErez: we will add custom matches
  68.  
  69. [01:23:48.781] HiRezErez: 10K people is not really much
  70.  
  71. [01:25:23.598] HiRezErez: 10K new players only changes the CCU by a small amount (if they each play for an hour, it's 400 CCU)
  72.  
  73. [01:26:50.534] HiRezErez: So far all the patches have had no change for conversion (I think the one were everyone went nuts on the forge was the best one so far)
  74.  
  75. [01:27:04.959] HiRezErez: That's why this patch is a lot more radical
  76.  
  77. [01:27:51.632] HiRezErez: But none had any real impact
  78.  
  79. [01:29:08.399] HiRezErez: The competitive mode will come after we find a good casual mode.
  80.  
  81. [01:30:03.435] HiRezErez: some weapons only come in epic/legendary now
  82.  
  83. [01:31:23.851] HiRezErez: I think we have about 80K people a day now
  84.  
  85. [01:33:55.145] HiRezErez: actually I focus on numbers that show when people are having fun and sticking around
  86.  
  87. [01:36:07.733] HiRezErez: If you think I enjoy making the change you are wrong. I designed all the concepts around the forge and classes. It's not fun to remove them.
  88.  
  89. [01:37:49.481] HiRezErez: the tourney will not be 6 player, probably duo
  90.  
  91. [01:39:21.891] HiRezErez: average player plays less then an hour
  92.  
  93. [01:40:09.097] HiRezErez: casual is not a really good word, more like what an average player wants
  94.  
  95. [01:43:10.826] HiRezErez: Just wait for the ranked mode, this mode is not for you
  96.  
  97. [01:44:44.380] HiRezErez: Play the mode like you are supposed to, with a team and stop crying
  98.  
  99. [01:44:59.042] HiRezErez: or go play something else and take a break
  100.  
  101. [01:46:26.159] HiRezErez: All I'm saying is that if he hates it, go play something else
  102.  
  103. [01:47:33.091] HiRezErez: I tried explaining as much as I can, we will see how players like the patch and make changes based on that
  104.  
  105. [01:48:09.692] HiRezErez: I do recommend taking a break if it's frustrating you. Maybe another patch or ranked will be more like what you want.
