If only the game wasn't so barebones. Out of the super fun core gameplay, the game is a barren land. They better make much easier "major orders", because the player base has mostly moved on.

I think that A lot of the player was snap out of existence, after 177 regions was forced to go dark.

In those regions in which they took the game down... that was only for new purchases. Anyone who already bought it could play just fine.

Looks like they're struggling to get 100k on steam. A far cry from the 458k peak.

Games never stay at the peak.

I really hope they expand the war to where our foes get to super earth like in helldivers 1 I’d imagine the game by then would have tons of stratagems and the vehicles by then

It’s important to establish both successes and failures in order to make community engagement feel genuinely impactful, and not just a predetermined outcome on rails.

They obviously have a bunch of content waiting for deployment, and they plan to trickle it out at whatever pace keeps the community at their desired size.

The game is still much, much more popular than they ever planned. And antitank mines feel like small potatoes compared to the vehicles and new enemies we know are down the road.

Buckle up for a long term plan.

Extraction killing and kicking is becoming a trend in Helldivers 2, and it needs to stop

Your goal in Helldivers 2 is to complete missions as a team. Not to kill your fellow soldiers just as you're about to finish one.

Toxic behavior... I haven't encountered it much, but I generally keep to my own lobbies.

I'm sorry but it's completely on the developers to make their own games 100% grieve-proof, or as close to it as possible. If you don't want TK-ing then why the hell put that in the game? Just plain stupidity.

Friendly fire is part of the strategy of the game. I am not sure how they could do it really.

Crows9021h ago

I'm not sure they want to. It's part of the game and for about 99% of the experience there are no issues.

Vits1d 1h ago

In my personal experience, I had a couple of really high-level players join my medium-low-level missions just to try to kill us. Of course, they get kicked as soon as we notice, but I feel they are probably bored with the game and, instead of moving on, they pull this sort of stuff. It is more sad than annoying to be honest.

This happened to me for the first time last night. I was so caught off guard by it. I wasn't team killing, and I was taking down objectives and gathering damn near ALL the samples. Got booted for absolutely no reason. They should take away the option to boot players when the drop ship gets called in. Or you can't get kicked after a set period of time in game. 5 minutes for the short 12 minute missions, and 15 minutes for the 30 or 40 minute missions. That's apt amount of time to see if you want to keep a player on your crew.

repsahj9h ago

It is alright for me to be honest, as long as the mission is complete. The minus experience is for everybody not just the player who died.
