For a while now, we get e-mails from people saying that they’re having big trouble finding matches in Star Wars Battlefront and they have to way for humongous amounts of time in order to find enough players to start the game – up to 10 minutes of waiting times on popular game modes and even longer on other game modes. I am here to help you fix the long time required to get matches in the game and the fix is extremely easy in most cases.
Apparently, all the people who have to wait these outrageous amounts of time to find a game in Star Wars Battlefront and get enough people to start a match are those who have not downloaded the DLC/update Battle of Jakku.
When you try to start a new game, even if you don’t play the Battle of Jakku, the game still tries to find people that do not have the update as probably there are some other minor changes made by it as well. However, since the Battle of Jakku is a free update, most people playing the game have it installed and the very few who still don’t have it are difficult to find – hence the really long wait times for finding matches.
So all you have to do in order to fix this problem and get lightning fast matches for your games is to install the free DLC, restart the game and enjoy it as it’s supposed to.
Also, I am sure that if future free updates are released, you should do the same: just install them in order to make sure that you get matched faster, because most people will install them ASAP and the game will try to find you matches who don’t have the said updates.
