Which is exactly my point I made to some devs. Those that care about ranked/NB too much don’t care if the server pop is down to 50-100 as long as they get their Ranked matches in because they don’t orvr. They’re ok with standing in the city until Ranked pop with no regard to oRvR.gebajger wrote: ↑Wed Jun 16, 2021 4:52 pmI'm not sure there is a connection, imo its more like ppl are waiting for season 2, which - as we all know - is coming in two weeks.Spellbound wrote: ↑Wed Jun 16, 2021 7:01 amThe “Best patch in RoR history” claim with the NB change did the opposite of helping ranked pop.Neflak wrote: ↑Tue Jun 15, 2021 5:01 amWhat is going on with ranked? I basically never see games popping anymore even during EU prime time. As a ranged dps main I can't even get 10 games a week in a reasonable time, much less 10 wins. Are the incentives not good enough for people to que this or there is just no reason to que right now? I don't understand, I thought this was end game pvp for small scale fighting... seems like nobody cares...?
Large population don’t care for ranked and it’s only meant for certain classes.
On the other hand, if I'm wrong and it is in fact a direct result of the removal of NB, I'll consider it a job well done, and I'll be happy with less pop.
Larger player base care more for oRvR than Ranked, who actually care about population.
