In 2021 Hi-Rez added 6v6 PvP modes to the game, but not on Switch. At the time the studio claimed this was to ensure Switch players had the “best quality” experience possible. Players theorized that the Switch couldn’t handle more taxing modes and features, and some worried that the other versions of the game were being held back by the Nintendo port.


Rogue Company fans are happy they won’t put up with Switch kids anymore

As you might expect, Rogue Company players who primarily played on Switch were upset and sad about the news. However, there were also a lot of players cheering the demise of this port with many complaining that Switch players were the worst to team up with in matches. Some suggested it was because Switch players were mostly kids or younger gamers who weren’t as skilled and could cause teams to lose due to their lack of experience.


“No more Switch players leaving after 3 rounds in demo with 0 damage & 0 Kills,” tweeted one player. “No more Switch players in my lobbies?!” tweeted another person.

Of course, it’s also likely that a lot of these players were just looking for excuses as to why they’d lost, and a few bad Switch players became their excuse. And while I don’t doubt there are plenty of kids playing a free-to-play shooter on Switch, I’d like to point out that kids can also play games on Xbox, PC, or PS5, so you aren’t entirely safe from them invading your games even with Switch out of the picture. Sorry.
