Roller Champions lobbies overrun with bots, players demand matchmaking with real people

Developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft, Roller Champions is a multiplayer skating game that was released a few weeks ago. The gameplay requires players to complete a lap without any interruptions to score a goal.

But ever since its release, players have complained about various bugs and issues such as the game asking for an activation key when downloading while some are getting a ‘Fatal Error: Failed to load il2cppm’ message when loading the game.

Adding to the trouble, Roller Champions players are now reporting that lobbies are now overrun by bots. The problem seems to be frustrating many who are trying to play the game (1,2,3,4,5).

Some say they tried matchmaking during different times of the day but it looks like bots are rampant. Here are some reports from Roller Champions players who are tired of lobbies filled with bots.

Problems with matchmaking. There are problems with matchmaking, in normal games it takes me 4-5 minutes to find a match and when I find it I only play against Bots. While in the competitions I wait for 15 minutes and I get an error saying that I can no longer search because I have reached the maximum waiting time and to try again. How can I do? I would like to have fun playing against other real players

Problems finding players. Everytime i try to find a game, the queue is exacly 5 mins long, and when it gets to 5:00 i get put in a lobby with bots. Occasionaly it seems theres like 1 other human player. My friends dont have the same problem, and find games rather quickly, playing with and against humans. But if i am in the party with them we get put on the 5min queue and then play against bots aswell, regardless of party leader. Anyone had the same problem or any ideas for a fix?
