>theyre really fucking slow
Before BR games were a thing they were mostly fast paced mini games, like minecraft hunger games. Modern BR shooters typically will have the player jump from a flying object and land wherever they want there junk
This is a terrible approach as this means players aren’t pressured to quickly get what they need, this also means it’s likely players can simple avoid coming into contact with their opponents making most BR matches overglorified searches for finding opponents. BRs should instead design matches so that players in a lobby all spawn right next to each other at the center of the map where most of the best loot in game is ensuring players get their shit fast before the long part of the match starts
Another problem with maintaining pacing in BRs is how fucking long it takes for the map to apply pressure to where the player is. 2-5 fucking minutes at the start of a round just to close the map by a smidtch even once is too fucking long even if the lobby is big, at minimum 40 seconds should be the default for all circle enclosements to ensure players aren’t just lying around and actually use their time better while playing. When these features aren’t included it doesn’t make the game reward aggressive and skilled play but rather camping and waiting out the agonizingly long minutes until the match ends >RNG is awful in literally any pvp game
It’s kind of obnoxious how it’s 2022 and competitive games still have RNG mechanics in games, in BRs it’s even dumber to have RNG on item drops and where they spawn as it essentially means there’s no reason to move towards a specific location as you’ll either always or never get what you want, this also means players are less likely to compete over items causing again long as periods of doing nothing all round. As for shit like spread patterns while hip firing/ADS, damage output, special drop locations you get the point it’s the same reasons established above
I hate battle royales not just for being a fucking snooze fest that require zero skill to play but also for how less fucking boring and slow they could be if someone considered building them better, fucking apex and warzone only got recognized for not being slow as shit and even then in any round you’ll still find these long ass stretches where nothing ever fucking happens.
