Slightly off topic, I had some free time last night, so I tried to play some BF2042. Scanning for games, 128 player Conquest and Breakthrough, for like 30 minutes, no luck. Either people got too impatient and kept disconnecting as players were gathering, or there is some issue with their servers (is/was, haven't tried today.) People would get put into my squads, wait a few minutes at the loading screen, then leave.
They need to just go 100% to traditional servers, with bot options if necessary. The automatch feels like a complete failure now. Portal has traditional servers but I didn't feel like parsing through weird gravity and other bullshit yesterday.
So I went back to my second playthrough of Riftbreaker... what a deliciously enjoyable waste of time that game can be.
