Encounters Matched with Level Discrepancy

Recommended Posts

During the matching I am being matched with players who are level 75 while I am 15 and just starting out. Each encounter ends in death because of the dozen players matched with me that are 50 levels higher and have access to better equipment and experience of the map I do not have. Please match players with the same level range (10 levels higher and lower than yourself) for a better experience.

Same issue for me. Contacted support and was referred over here. No response by support as I suspected. I can understand that there might not be enough players on the same level but that can be resolved by introducing bots. It’s impossible to play against high levels and it makes the game highly unenjoyable for us. It gets to do point where I don’t even want to play it anymore. Really nice concept but very much unfair. If you want to attract and also not loss existing players sort it out.

Hi everyone, thanks for starting this thread.

 

I'd like to say that though someone is ahead in "levels", it's just a battle pass level - it doesn't indicate how long they've been playing the game or how skillful they are. Anyone can be a better Outlander by being sneaky, listening around for footsteps, and more 🙂

Not entirely true. I was really enjoying this game in the beginning but now I'm very close to uninstalling. I'm level 16 myself and find it highly unfair being paired with people who are clearly substantially higher levels than I am. Can normally tell by their "badges" they have on display. One guy earlier was level 50 and had "250 air drops retrieved". 

 

Every match now is becoming a case of spawn in and die within 2 minutes.

Edit - Uninstalled. Game with promise but the matchmaking is ridiculously unfair towards lower ranked players. Sorry.

im almost doing the same here, and its a shame cuz the game is really something else, interesting concept. but cmon, i have like 80 hours of experience by now, not even close to the level that i can afford lots of purple and gold tiers weapons and consumables. but the game always pairs me with people who already killed 1000 peoples (they are always using aur hbar and scoped rifles), players who walked million kilometers (like wtf) players who collected 500 air drops... like im still using AKM and Es16 with the newbie clothes LMAO and i have to make a miracle to control the recoil with white tier guns while people beam me with scoped rifles and know my location with portable radar 🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️

I have to admit the devs are right here I’ve seen people rocking m16s picking off even skilled players, sure high level gear helps but even us veterans get bushwhacked by sweaty players too. Play smart outlanders also bear in mind we just recently got two new things to gun for like the locked container and timed safe, along with barred house, comms, jammer and signal, it’s gonna split the usual pile up of players into different areas. 

I remember on some maps EVERYONE gunned got barred house, but now there’s a second safe and a container to try for meaning you won’t get nightmarish 6 player scrums anymore which I like! 🙂
