But the problem is who really has time to be spending 3 hours in one sitting on DB? I sincerely doubt the amount of people that are not spending 3 hours straight playing DB offsets the amount of people like me who just aren’t playing anymore because we just do not have time for that. Only on extremely rare occasions do I have 3 hours free to do whatever I want and I can guarantee you that I will never spend all three of those hours playing one video game, especially not DB. There is not enough in the game to warrant me wanting to spend 3 hours of my life working towards something that can’t even buy me any worthwhile skins or items in the game. The only thing credits buy you are bronze loadouts, ability to craft things (which is also reliant on crafting items so moot) , and the occasional event trinket. Again, nowhere near close being a good reason to waste 3 straight hours of my life.
DB has 1 gamemode, on limited maps, with only a few playstyles with slight variants within those playstyles. There is simply not enough game to entice me to spend 3 straight hours. I’m not joking when I say I just don’t want to play DB anymore in large part due to how ridiculously long these contracts take to complete and the fact that I’m literally being punished as a player in resources for the fact that I don’t have the time nor do I want to put in the time to play 3 hours straight every day.
The concurrent players have dropped over 1k since December. This is a lack of content issue, not a “people aren’t playing long enough” issue. If the servers were “constantly empty” the fix is not just try to get people playing the same amount of time but in a single spurt, the answer is provide new and old people a reason to play again and that means content and not the dumb “here are some flags” type content. Like gamemodes, weapons, maps content. REAL content.
