You are missing the whole point. The reason the game has so many bugs and old code is BECAUSE they don't have any money, and can't hire the necessary people to fix it properly. Sadly, Paladins is dying a slow death for a long time just like Overwatch has been. Lucky for Blizzard, they have the money to bring out Overwatch 2. Hi Rez/Evil Mojo does not. What usually happens with these F2P games when the player base gets so low, is they just don't even bother fixing or updating anymore. Eventually, the servers get turned off. With Hi Rez extending the length of battlepass, it appears they are trying to minimize time spent on new content for whatever reason (money, manpower, etc.). I've played over 10,000 hrs of this game, but can see the writing on the wall. The end is near unfortunately.

RE: It's Time To Take Charge (Paladins 2.0)
The little jingle sound effect telling you you're about to die while playing is gone
I personally loved the little jingle sound effect you always get telling you you're life bar is very low, and about to die while in a match. It is now gone as of today. Consequently, it is really affecting my gameplay after having relied on it for so long. What happened to this? Did they take it out? I can't find anything on it being removed? Im also having other issues with sound effects in game for sprays, and some characters abilities.
Every time i first start Paladins, and after EVERY match, it states I unlock weapons/armor for linked accounts I don't even have
So, for the past month ongoing now, every time I first start Paladins, and after every freaking match, the window opens stating I've unlocked special items for linking my account to Xbox LIve, PS Plus, Wii, etc. I have uninstalled and re installed a number of times. Ive ran all my virus programs. Nothing stops it. I've sent multiple support tickets, and never get a reply. Is Hi Rez even responding to help tickets? This is so annoying. Anyone experience this?
RE: Skye rework?
I would like to see poison darts silence enemies for a few seconds, and lesson the damage. She should have increased jump as a normal part of her kit similar to Koga's jump card increase. I'd like to see her have some dmg reduction cards available similar to talus. Her weapon is just awful. Give her throwing stars like Genji in Overwatch. Take away her burst. She shouldn't have a weapon thats basically a machine gun. Lastly, she needs a dash or some sort of mobility talent. THAN she'd be an actual ninja/assassin like she's supposed to be.
RE: Matchmaker Fuels and Fosters Toxicity
@U1222201596 My post is focusing toxicity IN GAME. The fact that the matchmaker often places players anywhere between GM and bronze in the same game. Than, players get upset at one another. Low rank players with zero game sense pair on the same team with GM lvl players. Its no fair to either player. Both are being set up to fail in the match. Higher rank players accuse lower rank players of feeding intentionally when they really aren't. Low rank players accuse high rank players ,who expect a certain ability lvl, with harassment. So you have all this reporting fueled simply by poor matchmaking.
I also think matching solo que players against 5 stacks is completely absurd. Allow 5 stacking in custom games only. 2 stacks should be all they allow in ranked at any lvl. Solo que is an uphill battle as it is, but going against a 5 stack is what causes people to quit early. Ill admit I've done it. You can tell within the first 30 seconds when your team gets stomped by them. I'd rather just stay in spawn and get the match over quickly. Why bother prolonging a guaranteed loss?
RE: Being punished for the game crashing? Not cool at all Hi-Rez...
@NinjaSyao I play on PC, and had this same situation happen to me. I filed a ticket contesting the suspension. They said there is no way to track if leaving AFK is intentional of not. Its total garbage, and will push players away. Knowone likes to be punished for someones elses bad conduct, which in this case, is Hi-Rez/Evil Mojo who are not fulfilling their responsibility. Maybe someone should inform them that Overwatch 2 was just announced. Gonna be a REALLY good reason to leave Paladins for a lot of people if they don't step it up.
RE: October Rage Thread
13 months. That is how long I've been playing Paladins since leaving Overwatch. Never suspended. In the last week, I've received a 24hr suspension and a 72hr suspension. No idea why. Haven't changed anything in the way I play or interact with team mates. Contact support and receiving no specific incident or information on what I did. That was after the first 24hr suspension. Than, I receive a 72hr suspension yesterday. AGain, no idea why. I am rarely if ever toxic, always flex pick, and never leave AFK unless the game crashes, which isn't that often.
So, obviously something is happening different in the last week that wasn't happening in the past 13 months.
I believe it is false reporting due to bad match outcomes, and if it is, that is absolutely unacceptable. Im a team player, and usually if I have a bad game, my entire team has as well because we were likely stomped by the other team.
Now after receiving this second 72 hr suspension, I am still clueless as to why, and support hasn't responded to my ticket contesting the validity of the suspension. By the time they do, the suspension will be done, but it ruined my entire weekend I was planning to play the damn game and use new content I literally bought a hour before the suspension hit.
I really am considering taking my time and money elsewhere because what good is buying content I am being blocked from using for no valid reason. Its bad business Hi REz. Your reporting system sucks and drives players away. Potentially back to your direct competition in the gaming market.
RE: We really need a role queue system for ranked.
There simply aren't enough players playing Paladins any more for this option to work. Even Overwatch is having a difficult time with this option since the recently added it. Unfortunately, both Paladins and Overwatch are dying. It sucks because we don't have any other similar games to go to besides them, but all the problems the two games have that are never addressed are just pushing people completely away for good.
Enjoy what you have while you have it. Nothing is forever. Its either you have something or nothing.
Matchmaker Fuels and Fosters Toxicity
The matchmaker in Paladins promotes bad players and drags good players down. Over and over when I pick first in ranked, I already know I'm expected to carry. When the players below me are much lower rank presumably, they are often clueless to how to even pick properly or play the game. I've had more matches where I picked first, and had a great game, that were ruined by such awful players on my team. Im mid Plat, but firmly believe I am at least a mid Diamond skill player. Problem is no matter what I do, or how good I play, my games are drug down by the most awful players I am forced to play with.
Now you might say to play in a stack. Well, that is a another issue I won't get into here. It shouldn't matter frankly. I should be able to play solo matches that are fair. Period.
Im tired of it. I shouldn't be going 30 and 40 kills a match with my champion and losing because the other 4 players on my team barely get 5 kills each. Although, if we win the match, it leaves a terrible feeling in my gut knowing that I am helping promote poor players that don't deserve it.
From now on in rank matches, if I am picking first, and players below me pick completely awful champions presumably because they are either throwing or clueless to how the game is played, I am just gonna shut down the game in the middle of picking to prevent the match from happening. Ill get the suspension, but at least I won't lose rank, and won't have to feel that I am contributing, or forced to support an awful system where bad players are carried and good players are punished.
The only other option is leaving the game for good, and along with that, Ill be taking my money elsewhere to buy content in another game.
