Anybody not finding any players in raids besides labs?

Recommended Posts

It's been a while since i got on EFT and when I do quests they tell me that I need to kill players on a certain map only to realize that when I load up the map not a single person is found. I went to the point where I had to kill 20 PMCs at Shoreline and found nobody I even tried to get peoples attention by shooting in the air and not a single person is found. I watch streamers load up in the same map to find about 10 other players but when I do it i happen to find nobody. It's either just poor luck to me or something is wrong with my game.

Hm, besides the massive losing time I do not have this issue.

On what server are you playing? If you use the EU version of the game you can play on any server you want. Give it a try.

Hey mate,

If you are playing on OCE servers they are dead. The biggest pop in the last two months i saw was yesterday afternoon. There was 300 on.

Streamers like pestily have been allowed to play on US servers by the devs to showcase populated servers.

Sorry m ate it sucks.

What time where you playing at ?

 

Also yeah labs are sucking up most of the people i've got to lvl 25 without doing skiers kill 12 pmc task so far i have 5 kills so far (i'm not being actively looking for pmcs i was just trying to clear the other tasks and though i would do it later now its later and i guess i'll be taking a pm into labs in my pouch and murdering other hatchlings once they think i'm a friend, i guess it beats teaming with randos and doing the same.

I've been having luck finding people in Woods and Customs. I got rolled over by a squad or four in Customs, trying to get that damn pocket watch. They rolled over two other people who were nearby that I was hiding from. As for Woods, I only occasionally see one or two people, usually either with only a pistol or dressed to the nines with thermals. I like playing night time though, sneaky-sneaky with the night vision scopes I keep finding (the old fashioned ones that make your AK fat).

Still, most people are on labs, or just the other maps long enough to look for keys to Lab rooms. It's just the nature of having a new kick-ass map pop up.

It is just the way that it is. Labs offers gear and money galore (with little to no risk) so that is where people will clump to until EFT fully comes out. I get the occasional geared person on Customs and Interchange doing Scav Bosses or helping a Hatchling out.

20 PMCs at Shoreline

I've struggled to get a few items out of shoreline resort the past week because I keep running into groups up there. But saying that I went through an entire shoreline and interchange back to back without hearing a single gunshot.

I was stuck on punisher part 4 for weeks.  Finally got fed up and rushed the resort with a 8 chamber 153 and camped the east wing 3rd floor staircase (tucked into the kicked in door by the window) and did that like 8 raids in a row to get my last 12 kills.

 

Its a shame cause i enjoy the pvp around gas station/powerplant but no one ever goes along thrshore anymore.

As a new player, I play woods almost exclusively. Choosing servers with long matching times gets me into raids with few other players.

This has actually led to me getting a good extracted % and good k/d with a decent economy. I never get the 1 million roubles, but I usually leave with some armor and scav kills. 

If I see other players (I play really carefully) I avoid them if they are looking like trouble, if I'm not I a really favourable situation.

My favourite setup is blue armor with the cheap Ww2 helmet and a Ak74 with the 1/6x scope and whatever attachment I have found.

 

If I choose automatic server, I get dropped into Omaha beach and die.
