People left the game because of the barrage of bugs and a major overhaul to the movement system. I’m talking about when you looked at the player list, it showed you a bunch of blank slates showing people where on but not who they were.
Thanks @mikelei . I’m not trying to open another “they killed the game” thread here, I just want to know if a feature I liked will return to the game. I get people are frustrated with change but let’s be realistic here, people will play the game until the next gen steals us all away to a new and brighter future and that’s assuming that Conan doesn’t come along for the ride.
That being said, does anybody remember that brief moment when we were all anonymous on the players list? I remember it being in the patch notes, being in the game, then just being off. I even looked at the settings (official pvp PS4) and it seems it should be on.
I don’t think what you saw was a feature, what you saw was lag.
If your server is overloaded, or your internet connection is terrible (slow/packet loss), the game loads much much slower. The player list won’t populate right away, and can sometimes take 3-15 minutes to load.
I know this, because I have such a terrible internet connection.
No, when they first released the last patch, they added an admin option for player names on list. Some officials were bugged and defaulted to no names. they fixed the settings on those servers within a week. But their is an admin option to turn it off for privates.
