This is not a bug. I believe it is related to current situation with average k/d majority of players has(approx 2.0) and huge gap in k/d some players are already reached(3.0 and more). I don't have access to solid statistics but according to similar problem i heard from particular players (Nekomant, FunkyColdMedina) I believe that after MM changes which came with latest update we got into some sort of hard "improbability conditions", that makes us(people with high k/d or amount of Total battles) virtually isolated from any match no matter what ship tiers or fleets we choose.

That wasn't unexpected of course. And for a solution I'd like to propose stats reset. It won't mess much with balance because many people are already have t3 and t4 so we will be pretty much close to old pre-progression competitive battles(which would be gladly welcomed these days), where ships are equal and fun available for everyone, not just majority. Also skill are growing faster when playing against strong opponents, not strong ships.

Currently we are testing this "k/d hypothesis" with smurf account. Trying to reach perfect k/d and see how MM waiting increasing and how soon it will be impossible to join at all. Better if developers confirm it with proper data and tools. We are kinda limited here after all.

No matches for me no matter what fleet configuration I choose.
I tried :

veteran fleet with mixed t2,t3,t4 ships
veteran fleet with mixed t2,t3 ships
veteran fleet with mixed t3,t4 ships
veteran fleet with only t3 ships.
veteran fleet with only t2 ships.
waiting in MM - about 40 minutes.

On another account

k/d 3.72
battles <20

T2 recruit fleet only.
Queueing time =< 3min.

Think there is strict limitation in MM condition "The discrepancy in experience, measured by the number of games played, between the least-experienced player and the most-experienced player is minimal."

K/D 2.25
Battles: 60

I've played waaaay more than 60 matches since before Progression 2.0. Plus I recall my K/D was higher.

My stats were reset with Progression 2.0 it appears. 60 matches is about right for earning what I needed to upgrade my ships/modules until this T3 which I paid 50,000 for. 1500 creds avg guess x 60 is 90K

Veteran Fleet T3 only ship in fleet, solo queue, 2 hours without a match and cancelled

Recruit Fleet T2 only ship in fleet, solo queue, waited 20+ min and quit

Recruit Fleet T1 only ship in fleet, solo queue, 1hr 2 minutes b4 quitting.

No games no matter what I choose.
