    • I stepped up to a ranked position and got busy with my Arma 3 Unit
    • I started a belated D3 Seasonal Character
    • At my play times, it's LSM/CSM 30vs30 at best
    • Because of the above, if I feel like playing Orks or Eldar, I can't
    • I have less incentive to play LSM or CSM since I'm R6 on those, with all gear
    • Sometimes there's only 15 per side at best, which means 40 and 60 player maps are much less fun
    • Long queue times due to low population
    • I either settle in for 2-3 hours or don't play, so if I don't have that block of time I play something more interruptible
    • If I feel like playing melee, I have to put up with a shit ton of janky bullshit
    Biggest reason: I'm pretty much done on my characters, I have all the cosmetics I want, I have all the gear I want, and my playtime has no impact on the game world. I have no reason to play, unless I specifically feel like playing a PvP 3rd person shooter.

    20 players at any given time is the norm these days (10 each side) and only ever CSM / LSM.

    That in itself is depressing. Ships already gone down man, we're just waiting for Leo to let go:

  4. As long as you find matches (And be it CSM vs LSM) It's not dead yet.
    I think everyone and their grandmother is waiting for something new to come out then give it another try.
    Till then... only depressed matches

    Why don't I play EC more often?

    - shit camera
    - clunky gameplay
    - shit scaling in PVE and therefore no potential for enjoyable solo gameplay
    - lack of PVE development
    - excruciatingly long grind compared to shit rewards
    - badly unfinished classes
    - lobby shooter / no queuing from the garrison
    - shit vehicles across the board
    - shit weapon models with crap textures
    - persistent issues with certain cosmetic items
    - 1360 hours played despite the aforementioned issues... there are limits

    - shit camera
    (You get used to the camera, it's not that bad, no complaints)

    - clunky gameplay (Check)

    - shit scaling in PVE and therefore no potential for enjoyable solo gameplay
    (PvE? Who plays PvE?)

    - lack of PVE development
    (PvE, don't like it, never liked it, never will like it)

    - excruciatingly long grind compared to shit rewards
    (Yep on the grind, and a shit reward system because if you play enough you get everything dosen't give you a feeling of accomplishment or reward or uniqueness)

    - badly unfinished classes (Check)

    - lobby shooter / no queuing from the garrison (Check)

    - shit vehicles across the board (Check)

    - shit weapon models with crap textures
    (Check - please see rusty Founder weapons especially
    )

    - persistent issues with certain cosmetic items (Shoulder pads on CSM have graphic clipping on corners for some tier armour, check)

    - upload_2017-10-21_12-43-52.png hours played despite the aforementioned issues... there are limits (Check)

  7. Most of it has been listed by others but currently it's griefing. Don't need to endure this shit and just move on to other games. Just coming back for my 40k fix and my clan mates

    Why don't I play more? Easy.

    1: To be brutally fair, I don't get much game time these days however:

    2: I play as a LSM tactical (I would go play CSM if I could get a Death guard skin, not just a normal CSM marine who hasn't washed for the last thousand years, which makes him think that he's a "plague marine" now). So I'm basically there to be brutally murdered by anyone else. I hear that bolters are really good, but the skill cap for them seems to be utterly astronomical because I don't get time to play (see #1). Also you need certain mods (see #4). In Space Marine I never felt that, and when a Jump pack decides to take me on with some skill, that could be learned, I could end him. Here if an assault class locks on I'm dead, and oh look I have a thirty meter "range" on my Bolter.
    Also tacticals are meant to be able to do a bit of everything right? Cool, now here's a tank kill it without going off and getting a specialist AT load out? So basically I think this boils down to class balance.

    3: The gun sight locking onto obstacles. You're sitting there, lining up on someone and it looks like you have another five or so degrees of traverse then suddenly you're cross hair is locked onto a plank halfway towards your target.

    4: Finally, and possibly the biggest reason why: I'm not getting rewarded. Every time I save up 3000 purple for a supply drop I get a useless piece of equipment I can't use on my tactical. Then there are (alt) appearances of the same useless bloody item, just to pad out the grind to horrible levels.
    Equally as a LSM tac I can't kill hundreds of people like those assault classes do to get the big rewards, so while I'm getting just under 1 supply drop per game these days, what about those 30K ones, yeah never goign to happen. I'm nearly level 5 at the moment and not got the fancy rapid fire bolter yet.

    I still manage one game a week simply because I like the 40K universe, I loved space marine, and I'm hopping to keep you alive long enough to get the game fixed. Plus I'm poor right now so I don't have enough to go buy Inquisitor.

    Why? Because I've already seen in hundred of times and there is nothing new.
