Nope! We were never dead on either platform, nowhere close. Honestly, it all really depends on the fleet you're using and the game type you're searching. On PS4 it makes sense that it's easier to find Recruit and Veteran matches more frequently. Some folks are still working towards Legendary which is just going to take them some more time. If the wait ever feels longer than usual, I would try mixing it up a bit.

Would you guys mind introducing some sort of 'Any Fleet' option for Team Elimination? I'm sure most people who want to queue TE just want to play the mode instead of increasing the XP or credits so most I think wouldn't mind playing a recruit match there e.g.. The mode is hardly ever played but it's a fun mode and has achievements and I think it would be easier to find matches that way there. Not everyone is social online and can organise parties or events where they can get enough players together to get a match going.

You gotto find another game - cause these developers broke TE during one of the updates and don't know how to fix it (on PC, anyways).

Not only did Team Elimination become bugged, but if I recall correctly it was decided by the developer/publisher to not pursue fixing/maintaining it because data suggested that the Team Elimination gamemode was causing new players to leave the overall game, as well as Team Elimination not being nearly as popular as the other modes.

On PS4 things work differently a bit, players often shun games they know they can't 100% achievement wise, I can give you examples that suggest of how that damaged another free to play game because the devs unfortunately decided to add a trophy that is way too much of a grind compared to the rest of the game, and requires several hundred hours of playing that game. Surely there must be something that can make players play Team Elimination while also not forcing it on players that don't care about achievements or the mode, even with the size of the current player base.

Havoc is a mode that is even more hidden than Team Elmination on the choice list but I find matches there when queueing alone much quicker (granted, that mode only needs three players to get a match started but the rewards are smaller for how much time players can put into it), partly because the choice between fleets isn't there.

This is correct, no one broke Team Elimination, it was just incomplete from the start. Our teams were well aware of this, and honestly there are a lot of players that just don't enjoy TE. So what ended up happening was players would get in a match and suddenly people would leave. This created a lot of frustration. So it was disabled in the meantime. Mind you this was all on PC, on PS4 TE remains as there are trophies attached to it, etc. However, on PC (PS4 as well) it's something that the team certainly plans to return to and polish.

I didn't know TE was still functioning on PS4 since everytime I queued I never got a match and figured it was disabled.

It's sporadic for me. Sometimes I queue in immediately, other times it take a little bit. Don't think it's too bad personally.

Honestly it's a mode that that people either enjoyed, or they didn't, there was no in between. A lot of us really enjoyed it for what it was, but we also knew that it could be a lot better. So, personally, I'm looking forward to when we're able to work on those changes and bring it back.
