Hey everyone! We know that a lot of you have had questions regarding Team Elimination’s current and future status, so we wanted to share some details with all of you.
To be blunt, Team Elimination never really took off. There were certainly a few fans (myself included), but it was clear that the majority of the community did not share the same mindset. After we put it in the “Any” game mode rotation, we noticed a lot of players would quit as soon as they were able. Which was an outcome we definitely didn’t want as it impacted the experience of other players. This lead to us removing it from the “Any” game mode rotation to see how well it would do on its own, and truth is, it didn’t. It got to a point where players that purposely queued for Team Elimination would almost never find a match, even if they joined as a squad.
After everything we had seen it was clear that Team Elimination is a game mode that is unfinished and requires quite a bit of work across the board. Which is why we’ve decided to completely remove it and give our teams more time to focus on higher priority issues. At the moment we do not have an ETA on when it will come back, or if it will have the same mechanics when it does. We are aware that there are contracts and other in-game content that still revolve around it, and we’ll be cleaning that up as soon as we can.
We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding in this, and we hope that this helps shed some light in the situation. If you have any feedback, please feel free to comment in this thread! Thank you!
O... well then, that explains a lot. I just came back after a very long break, and couldn't figure out where my favourite game mode had run off to :/
That's a shame to say the least. That was my "fun" mode, where I could let my hair down and just enjoy myself without the stress of grinding or performing at my best. I loved zooming around in fighters, death never felt like a bad thing with those things waiting in the launch tubes ready to go!!
Well, I sincerely hope the mode returns bigger and better than ever.
