I’m all for these feedback threads for providing feedback that is supposed to be considered to implement game changes. The problem is that a lot of the feedback we’ve been giving for 6+ months and in some cases over a year has been ignored. There are so many feedback threads since last year where multitudes of players have all given the same feedback,yet today that same feedback is still being given and it’s still being ignored and it’s honestly extremely frustrating.
A perfect example of this is the high weighting of DLC maps in Reach BtB, and this is only 1 example. Since the very first week of release, and in every subsequent feedback thread people have requested that the DLC maps have their weighting substantially reduced because forge maps rarely come up in rotation. You would think with all the feedback provided every month in every thread this would be changed, but it isn’t. Players are just repeating themselves every month because their feedback is still being ignored, a lot of these requests are simple mind you, and nothing is being done.
Other examples include not losing your “highest rank achieved” from your profile when a rank playlist is removed, this is an incredibly simple request to fulfill. Doing so would encourage more players to play ranked, but as it stands right now why would we want to put a lot of time in a playlist and rank up when our rank is removed from our profile when the playlist is rotated out? This is another thing that has been requested time and time again in every feedback thread this year and many from last year yet still nothing.
The other thing is ranked playlists, take h2 for example, ranked arena was removed and replaced with hardcore with no input from players, and it was a mistake. This was in MARCH of 2019, 14 months ago, it was a dead playlist by early April and has been dead since then. Every feedback thread since April 2019 has had players request a new playlist for H2c, we’ve been asking for fourteen months for a new playlist and the feedback has been ignored, we’ve requested you replace it with ranked h2 ffa, or even doubles, nope nothing for 14 months, yet H3 has 2 doubles playlists. The flashy title screen updates are cool, but you guys really need to listen and address our feedback, or else what really is the point of these feedback threads? Most of the time it’s just players repeating over and over again on changes they want to see, but they feedback seems to always be ignored. I really hope this changes and that our feedback is considered more, but I’m not holding my breath.
