Close to 100% of my rounds of CQ since the TuTi patch have been steamrolls, to the point that every single flag is owned by 1 team within the first 2 minutes of the game. I have almost never seen what a spawn trap looks like in BF1 up to this point, and now in just the last 2 weeks of playing every single match devolves into 1 team playing whack-a-mole with the other.
I have used both the server browser and quick match to join mixed servers, base game, as well as each expansion individually, with the same results. I will typically stick around in a server for 2-3 whole matches, and it used to be that you won one, you lost one... but now I find that if a server is being steamrolled, it will continue the same match after match.
I’ve become incredibly frustrated. I love BF1, but I’m on the verge of putting it away permanently because of this... it is not fun being on either side of this equation. I joined 6-8 different servers in quick succession last night just seeking out a match that seemed relatively well balanced. In every single game I joined, all flags were owned by 1 team. In one round of pris de tahure, enemy assaults were actually tossing AT grenades into the OOB spawn area, directly on top of spawn points, making it literally impossible to spawn without being blown up.
After spending a good 30 minutes looking for games, I found a relatively balanced match on Amiens. We lost, but it was competitive and I enjoyed it. It shouldn’t be this hair-pullingly frustrating to find a decent game though, should it?
