The Dragon Ball FighterZ Player Base is Dying Fast

Records were broken with the release of Dragon Ball FighterZ two weeks ago. Now the game is pulling a fraction of what it used to be. Is this the common course of a game’s life, or is this something to be worried about?

On PC. No fighting game lives long on PC.

Also when you add in the factor no one plays competitive fighting games at tournaments it isn't surprising. The stakes in online competitive fighting are so high there is a strong possibility of the game being compromised or exploited on PC.

What is it you're trying to say here?

I honestly would never play a fighting game on PC. I play FighterZ on both Xbox and PS4.

With direct "current gen" PC releases, emulators, and accessory compatibility, I'm planning to use my current PC as my DIY arcade machine.

Of course it is, they havent uldated the gsme since release! The game is still broken from time to time. I played yesterday and got kicked out of a game 3 times. Its just ridiculous that there is no update on a patch as of yet fixing the issue. Dont even get me started on the whole no rooms found issue. Havent even been able to play with a friend yet!

Yeah man. The broken ring mode sucks bad.

Also, continually dropping from servers is awful. It happens both in the lobby and during matches.

I love the game but they aren't making it easy to want to keep playing.

no online based game gets played more than the usual 30-40 hours. then people go on to the next best thing. minus the usual few which are too few to be called „a success“. even monster hunter world got played by roughly 90% of people in my buddy list the first week. impr ssive, but yesterday only 5 people still played the game. (i guess the game rental stations are still a big thing anong gamers). maybe it‘s best for devs and pubs to invest in a proper market research before churning out the next online based something. just a thought.

There's this indie game that came out last year that has been a modest and consistent success. It relies on online multiplayer for its gameplay. I think it's called... PUBG?

A lot of the pull of this game was because it's Dragon Ball. And a lot of those people are not really into fighting games. Once the dust settles the ones that will stay are the fighting game community.

You mean casuals posing as fighters.

I thought it was obvious the player base would shrink rapidly. It was so successful partially because of the license. So you would have an influx of casual gamers and dragon ball fans rushing to get it because it’s dragon ball, but only the actual fighting game fans would stick around past the honeymoon period.
