Ok just started playing and watching many videos on the game, what i have seen console controller players are at a huge disadvantage in this game as 1 button is a hell of a lot faster then 2,3 or 4 buttons to do the same action. Me and the group that came from ark are about to leave as there is no point we just can't be as fast. Also you need to have something for new players to practice fighting or just have a version of players vs environment (pve) at least that way new players will get a grip on the game. Other just leaving as they can't leave up as they never get to sell anything. Like long time players that go around taking all the new players stuff when there just getting use to the game and what to do. I know its part of the game but so many leave as there is no point playing on a console at all. when first starting out. Just thought i would reach out and see if something might change before we all leave. So everyone is waiting on your reply. Cheers. No point playing as it is.
This isn't really the right thread for this (so mods please feel free to delete), but I'm responding as I always hate to see somebody leave the game.
If you're playing via console or cloud gaming with controllers, you can actually change a setting to take you out of the crossplay pool.
- Go to settings on the main menu screen (Y button on an xbox controller)
- Scroll down to "Matchmaking Preferences"
- Change 'Prefer Xbox Players with Controllers" to "Yes"
- Back out back to the main menu
Note that this will match you with only people using controller, meaning friends on KB/M cannot join your games (even with an invite).
On topic though: Please stick around long enough to do GlitterBeard. It's a game defining piece of content IMO.
