    Agree 100%

    I've been through half a dozen of these pre-wipe events and this is the first I've put less than an hour into..

    Phase 3 with the Secure Container change is garbage. I see it as only pandering to "Streamers" who have been championing this change for months. Seeing as they're the ones playing for hours each day, of course it won't affect them much (If at all...)

    Hopefully the matchmaking holds up tonight. Yesterday during our daytime, the matches flowed pretty quickly. Hits about 4pm AEST and matching went tits up even with some Asian servers selected.

    yea it was ridiculous, same deal, played uring the day and got in within 30 seconds, evenings had to back out after 6 minutes etc.. not all maps are working. think nikita found a few major issues in the code and there hoping ot fix some of it asap., i dont mind as frustrating as it is, they will fix it.

    Finally got this - started playing this morning, was getting "Authentication Error" basically after ever game, only managed one scav run where it didnt happen. Googling didn't help me.
    Still had some money in my Launtel account so got a days NBN from them to test - error went away. I have now moved to Aussie Broadband and will be cancelling my Internode connection come Monday (what kind of ISP makes you call up to cancel your shit these days).
    Now I can actually play the game properly, it is great fun I must say!!!

    Yeah man it’s so good, but can be extremely frustrating too, especially the low levels.

    Tips:
    find friends to play with
    Learn the maps in offline mode especially the exfil locations
    Practice in offline mode with different guns
    Get the tasks done as they help levelling quickly
    And expect to die.... A LOT

    I have been doing scav runs with maps on my second monitor mostly to try and get the hang of things.
    Haven't touched the offline yet :p

    Anyone else getting horrible queuing times? In a duo, I'm getting wait times of 10-25 minutes (even on a weekend).... absolutely crazy. It's gotta be due to lack of servers, not lack of players

    I use Sydney and Singapore, I normally have queues less than a minute or two. Longest one I noticed was 6 minutes last night playing with 2 others.

    Yeh playing solo there aren't many issues, I'm getting no queues at all really. It seems to be harder to get a server when you have a squad. I guess easier to find a server with a single slot left rather than multiple which makes sense.

    So good that the game is exploding right now - they are working on upgrading servers I guess it just takes time.

    The game loop is both infuriating and rewarding, really great concept IMO.

    Haha yeh. It's actually so addictive.. Chasing that next progression/task/moneyz whatever.. Always something calling you back to the game.
