Something really, REALLY needs to be done about random dungeons

I've spoken of this before, but BS like this is happening every. Damn. Time.

Observe:


The person never came back... but, magically, as soon as I finished soloing the double linked boss, they wanted to start the next room.

It was so quick, it happened before I could even press conclude. And then, of course, I had to wait out the timer because they wouldn't conclude.

This is beyond absurd now and is moving into farce. Something has to be done about this if Kabam seriously wants us to continue randoms.

    With my timezone being what it is in relation to the rest of my alliance, I was essentially forced to use randoms. I would make it work for a while and found a couple semi-reliable "friends", but these new refresh timers are pure garbage. I used to be able to weather the storm and try again the next day if either of us had a bad run or if I got paired with a troll but that option is gone. Either get lucky and knock it out with my ranked up champs on the first try or get stuck grinding for hours in lower tiers with my C, D, and E teams and continue hoping for good luck with pairings.

    At the end of the day, it just wasn't worth the headache anymore. After I opened that last crystal in Mid-Feb, I swore them off for good (or at least until they are fixed).

    In that same amount of time, I can now grind more arena milestones and buy a Cavalier crystal instead.

    Yeah, I gave up on them haha. I occasionally play them when I'm bored or to help a friend, but that's it..

    The timers are the main bother for me. I can't really come up with any reasons as to why they'd extend the timers, especially considering the communities opinions of the first iteration of dungeons. I guess for anyone crazy enough to purchase recharges.

    Do what I do.
    Don't do dungeons. Of all the game modes they are least worthy of your time as far as time-rewards ratio

    Once I get this crystal, I'm done.

    22.5K. 4.5K more until I'm done with this.

    I do wish the Shards required were lowered. I suppose that's the goal they want.

    Just had another awful experience with random. I feel like I'm cursed.

    Just accept your fate, try to solo as much as you can, and then block that player. I'm assuming that you should never get matched with a player you blocked, since you would be unable to communicate?

    now we have caviler crystals handing out 5* champs like they are going out of fashion.
    I think having to save dungeon artifacts for almost two months just for a 5* is too much overkill and not appropriate anymore with how fast 5* availability has changed, Half the cost of crystals or make dungeons drop 2x the artifacts is my answer.

    I have 15k in dungeon crystal shards. I'm not even bothering to finish it up.

    There's three options here

    1. Use a friend instead of random

    2. Don't use anything particularly strong, stick with maxed 4* or R3 5*

    3. Use your strongest team, its risky, but the higher your PI, the likelier your partners PI is also high, higher the PI is a higher chance of a good partner.

    For Kabams side, we just need a way to end dungeons faster at the next room stage. Nothing more frustrating then sitting around for 10 minutes wanting to move on to the next dungeon.

    Solo dungeons would have been such a great mode ... this is a disaster

    It is.

    When you get paired with one of these nitwits you lose your champs to the ludicrous refresh time.

    You're punished for trying to use the system implemented.

    Don't do random dungeons and find a trustable partner!

    I found that you get the best random dungeon partners on the first day of the 3-day cycle. Towards the end of the 3 days it gets really bad.

    @Kabam Miike @Kabam Lyra @Kabam Vydious

    Is there a possibility of implementing some type of litmus test for random dungeons to filter out some of these awful people?
  • HaminHamin Posts: 1,915
    I wouldn't be opposed to making gates in randoms. Have your partner only be able to travel the path you choose when you say "take down node #".
  • Jedi_HawkeJedi_Hawke Posts: 62
    Is there a thread anywhere where people looking for partners are at? I have had problems with random matchmaking so didn’t know if there was a spot on here where people who wanted to dungeon runs could find a partner on here. Please post me link to thread if their is one.

    After all the frustration of dungeons and randoms... I pulled a Rhino.

    I will never touch dungeons again. Ever.
