Ignore the "HQ" Photoshop + Onscreen buttons

I'm a new player since PS+ addition, and i would like to explain why i think this extra button would be beneficial.

If you're a new player, you have a ton of stuff do to and level. Personally i want to get through my assignments relatively fast, but the nature of the game is, after a match there is a decent amount of downtime. Also the chances that your team mates are on the same assignment and the same PART of the assignment is pretty low. Because of that i leave my team after each mission (most of the time).

So every time, i press 'CONTINUE' land in the lobby with the team, leave team in the menu, the game leaves the party and creates a new lobby for me.

Can i just leave the team on the End screen, and land in a new lobby directly?

While I understand why you would want that functionality, we do not want to encourage players to constantly jump from group to group.

If you find a team that works well togwther it is (in my opinion) totally worth it to stay together and help each other finish assignments, hang at the bar, etc. The host player can see everyone's assignments on the mission map which would make it quite easy for them to select the missions other players need.

Placing a "leave" button at the end screen would advertise the option and suggest to many players that they should considder leaving the team.

So yeah, just wanted to let you know that your suggestion is heard but also why we will not implement it.

Rock and Stone!

Too bad joining to a specific mission doesn't works, but using the server browser you can join. But obviously the server browser will show all missions, so that's not great either.

Strange, we have been unable to reproduce this issue on our side. And it's very odd that all the options are unavailable to you in that screenshot... is it like that always? How do you start missions?

I see your point. But other then "you can see others assignments", the game doesn't really telegraphs WHO's missions we're doing to do.

Imo making leaving a team "inconvenient" is not enough to keep the team together. Although i respect the goal.

You can do a couple of things about this:

  • Clearly telegraph that there is a benefit to stick together.

  • Clearly telegraph if the mission that was picked by the host is a random mission or if we're doing some's assignment. You could even add some minimal +% bonus if the host is picking someone's else assignment.

I much rather stay and help someone out, instead of doing some random mission.

This is a clip from a random streamer: https://clips.twitch.tv/TriumphantRelievedStorkTooSpicy-EOC1rATbzBLp027E

She clearly picks one of her teammates assignment, but (i'm assuming this mission title is the same for every player) there is no indication if they're doing someone's mission or a random one.

You could show that the next mission will be X player's assignment, you even could show that it's 3/4 mission in they assignment chain.

You may be on to something here... I will give this displaying that a mission is part of someone's assignment more thought for sure. Thank you.
