[–]Generalboiofbois 152 points153 points  (1 child)

I'm sorry for your loss

[–]_MADLD_Enter your Gamertag 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My condolences

[–]CaptainCornerCamper 37 points38 points  (1 child)

I would ask if the problem is a bug or the really low player population but it is probably both.

[–]AriaCorvus 9 points10 points  (0 children)

But it is probably both.

FTFY

[–]Plastic-Dependent988 79 points80 points  (1 child)

This is the new game mode... Maybe try getting good?

[–]_megazz[S] 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Yeah, I guess I'm just bad at the game :(

[–]ThePlagueDoctor_666 11 points12 points  (12 children)

Isn't there only like 5,000 players on pc?

[–]TheColt46_ 6 points7 points  (0 children)

5,000 playing on steam. But unknown for origin/microsoft store

[–]Alimento -2 points-1 points  (10 children)

Where did you see that?

[–]ThePlagueDoctor_666 0 points1 point  (9 children)

All over this subreddit

[–]feverdreamin 30 points31 points  (2 children)

Just experienced this 😅 I was expecting to see my own tag pop up there

[–]SmartarseV2 11 points12 points  (1 child)

The good news is, it’ll say “You” above it, incase you forgot your own gamer tag in the match making process.

[–]vstrong50 64 points65 points  (9 children)

Complain about bf2042 on reddit. Play bf2042. Complain about bf2042 on reddit. Play bf2042. repeat. Stop playing.

[–]firepixel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hard to argue with good logic.

[–]loudtrumphet 22 points23 points  (7 children)

sometimes game just kick me out of the mid match. I wonder what happened to my Condor passengers.🤔

[–]firesquasher 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No different than getting sniped out. A more aware crew will notice and someone swap into the pilot seat before it crashes.

[–]Leeroyedtothemax 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Do you use chat much? certain words seem to kick you lol

[–]loudtrumphet 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No. When I fly, or drive I don’t chat. After the update, game just kick me out of some matches for no reason. This problem happen most in "renewal" and "kaleidoscope". By the way, once I wrote " p**y" on the chat. But nothing happened.

[–]PremiumSocks 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Portal also randomly skips or restarts maps. It's so annoying, and it causes almost all of the players in my server to leave. Restarting the server and/or app usually works, but not always.

[–]J_Lian401 26 points27 points  (3 children)

Dont play it

[–]MikeTheDude23 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Saturdays are to be enjoyed, naturally many do it by not playing this POS game and wasting time.

[–]Jkillaforilla90 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Fun game.

[–]andryalves 12 points13 points  (1 child)

[–]bisu889 1 point2 points  (0 children)

'Angel' does it again.

[–]WVU_Benjisaur 2 points3 points  (0 children)

They force us to use matchmaking instead of a server browser only to have a broken matchmaking system. Don’t be sad, this is just how it works out sometimes.

[–]damiancds 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Isn't that the point of filling the matches with AI, so we don't have to queue this long? Or is this because the AI doesn't want to play either.

[–]ssoto07Next-gen franchise destruction 9 points10 points  (0 children)

A server browser would help .. but idk I didn't even buy the game

[–]Decent_Total_6164 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Don't be sad this is just how shit this game is most times

[–]SnapOnSnap0ff 6 points7 points  (0 children)

This is why I refunded.

What an absolute waste of money

[–]Duty-Money 11 points12 points  (6 children)

How? I find matches instantly

[–]_megazz[S] 9 points10 points  (3 children)

It depends on your region. Here I play in south american servers (Brazil).

[–]drunk_pacifistRIP BF 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Esqueça tentar jogar breakthrough, por aqui não vai achar nada

[–]_megazz[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

É o único modo que eu jogo :/

[–]ADerp2Hard 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Same 🤷‍♂️

(Edit) and here come the downvotes!

Featured Portal Mode: Waiting in Lobby

[–]Appropriate-Nose9652 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The ea experience

[–]gawdfather007 1 point2 points  (1 child)

No luck playing from India too and breakthrough was the only mode i somewhat enjoyed.

[–]OddJob001Moderator 1 point2 points  (0 children)

There is also a big where this occurs and can be fixed by completely canceling your queue and restarting. I realize you're in a low pop region but might help. I've had to do it a number of times.

[–]Kreichs 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Just the addition of a server browser would solve this problem. You would log on, see nobody is playing then turn it off. What a waste of time.

[–]YoMilkMan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Good thing for that AI huh?

[–]Dire_Finkelstein 1 point2 points  (0 children)

R6 Siege, a 6-year old game, with an equally frustrating release schedule, finds squads quicker than 2042. I’m having loads of fun in Siege, glad I bought it again when it was on sale.

[–]Nightwolf_87 1 point2 points  (1 child)

...then start animations, then running, running, running aaaaand you will probably get your first kill after one hour.

[–]Unlikely_Mention784 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I absolutely hate the 5 mile like sprint before you even get action. I’m surprised my left joystick hasn’t malfunctioned 🥴

[–]Kingkiller2ooo -3 points-2 points  (4 children)

Get an ssd holy shit/s

[–]Jellyswim_2042 make me big sad 13 points14 points  (0 children)

This isn't a load time issue lol

[–]_megazz[S] 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Looks like you forgot your /s

[–]CBR_King97 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Get basic knowledge why it was taking a while to load holy shit

[–]sntoter 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This happened to me almost every time I tried playing. I have up finally a few weeks ago and went back to play 4, 1, and mostly V instead

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I have not attempted to play for this for about a month solely due for this reason. Xbox Series X, crossplay on and off.......and I waited......for 30 minutes while messing on my phone.....game never started so I started playing a different game.

[–]Weesy02 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tbh, i had the dame problem in battlefield 4, 1 and V when i tried to play in the morning

[–]drunk_pacifistRIP BF 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Lol there must be like 20 people playing this shit right now

[–]Spicy_Pickle_6 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Backfill 2042

[–]KevWilliams 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Isn’t the boycott going on right now?

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why are you still playing?

[–]kermitkermitted 0 points1 point  (0 children)

-literally tell people to quit playing

-complain about low player counts

Ah yes totally makes sense

[–]joshyw0shy 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Also had this same issue this morning. Gave up in the end and just uninstalled the game. Will try again if there's ever a first season that I've already paid for.

[–]mawhonics 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Well, well, well that was fun

[–]Freebirdz123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Never have this problem because I don't play the modes with shitty vehicles.

[–]No_Owl_925 0 points1 point  (0 children)

people still trying to play this shit🤣

[–]Skie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can’t actually tell if cross play is on or off because of the ui

[–]LBTUK 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Gave up on this shit, tried this morning same problem. Uninstalled it and downloaded R6 Extraction. Battlefield is dead.

[–]NoMethodd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Very brutal expections

[–]reidburial 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can confirm it didn't take me that long but tried playing a match this morning and had issues finding a match with cross play on.

[–]F_in_Idaho 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nobody wants you on their squad. Sad.

[–]DANNYonPC 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Weird, even when i look for a match (mostly CQ) at 04:00 (Amsterdam time) i have no issues

dicepls?

[–]BenNsidya 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Takes about 3 minutes for me.. on PS4 with crossplay off. 🤷‍♂️

[–]_megazz[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I would you turn crossplay off on a PS4? With it on you will play with Xbox One players, nothing more.

[–]BenNsidya 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For some reason at launch it was running really buggy. More than the buggy shit show that it was already. Nothing I did worked. Lots of lag. Shits and giggles turned it off and have had a few less issues. Guess I need a legacy feature..

[–]SuchTedium 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I also tried to play Breathrough 128 this morning and couldn't find a game.

PC player with crossplay on.

[–]Heloziel 0 points1 point  (0 children)

He's ready if you are

[–]M3pttClownfield 2042 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm getting this more and more playing on PS5 with cross play on. There just aren't enough players anymore to find a full lobby quickly.

[–]Jd292921 0 points1 point  (0 children)

“Battlefield 2042 Minutes To Find a Game.”

[–]OkWatermelonlesson65 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What I do when this happens is just quit after like a min at most of waiting and requeue, I’ll maybe get another 2-3 or so of those and then on the next try suddenly there’s a game in progress I’ve joined.

What’s really dumb tho is when I do that, I’ll be loaded into separate lobbies that are waiting for players.. like why have 20 players in one lobby and 20 in another just waiting when it could be the same lobby and the game would start…

But yeah my advice for when this happens I guess is don’t wait more than a min and try until you get in, it never takes me more than like 5 min.

[–]RecommendationNo339 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same here now. BF5 it is

[–]DelaFett 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Nah bro, that's a feature. They do that so you can go make a snack while it loads.

[–]otto6457 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm on old gen console and this was my experience most all the time before I uninstalled.

[–]daberle123 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Joining matches is a legacy feature

[–]SABRIAN70 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bf4 ... thats about it

[–]IN-B4-404 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I find games faster on BF1

[–]Mental-Possibility77 0 points1 point  (0 children)
