Yeah. I think there is a chance they took down some servers and converted them to 1943. This is making finding a decent room difficult.
As you know, I recently tried to run a session, and had a lot of trouble with randoms in the room. We were mildly successful with some things. But overall, we spent 2 or 3 hours just trying to get sorted.
We had a lot of trouble just getting everyone into our room.
I really think it might be a combination of everything mentioned.
- Demo servers taken down (probably for conversion to 1943), not sure if this really has an effect if they were just converted to 1943 servers. But it may have caused a bunch of Demo players to buy the game.
- Bad Company servers converted to 1943 (so less Bad Company servers)
- The game is platinum, so now people are buying the game for really cheap.
Overall, less servers combined with a new influx of players makes finding a private room very difficult.
