Servers / chances to play a challenging match
Currently there are 3 matches online.

2 are mostly bot matches, not challenging. Feels like squad defence. If I want to play squad defence, I select this in the menu!

The other one sees several prestige level hammering down a team of beginners. For me, this is not challenging too.

Personal opinion the 64 man public matches killed the drive to play especially adding bots it’s my personal opinion- you may wanna try and hop server to try and find a game with more players hope that helps mate

This is what I try to do.

But if there are only 3 servers available, there are not so many choices.


Bots are really killing fun for me. Even if I defend with a SMLE (10 bullets), they just overrun the trench again and again. Resulting in matches that feel like squad defence. 35 minutes of purely defending ---> not fun!

Really? The game has always had a very low population, and without bots it would be a ghost town. Bots at least allow you to play the product you paid for, even if it isn't the same as playing with other humans.

The game has always had a decent and more than sufficient playerbase on NA and EU. I agree that bots are needed in places like AU or Asia, but they are just not needed most of the time in the servers like NA or EU and they usually just detract from the experience.

I'm afraid I just don't agree with that. Sufficient is not how I'd describe it right now, particularly during weekdays.

From my experience when I used to play a lot bare in mind i have almost 600 hours I always managed to find 2-3 full games on the EU server or swap over to NA pre-bots. I've not played it a lot anymore but thats my opinion don't let it stop you enjoying the game though :)

I saw one server yesterday, and just over 70 people online. It's surprising to be honest, it used to have at least a couple of hundred at worst.
Having a server to join or having a fun match is something different.

Sure, joining a server as a prestige level 11 (in standard levels this is 1.100) is not challenging and can even unbalance a match of beginners.

Or joining a team of prestige level (not allowed by the balancing system to join the beginner team, because this has more human players). Not my kind of a challenge.
