Some modes are slow right now but change depending on the time. Your side of the world will have more activity during your evening. European pings will be better during your early mornings. Virginia is generally busy your mornings. Might be slow to go so far away..
Some modes like Her Starfighters is always hard to find players to fill the lobby. But it happens, so I always check. Sometimes Capital Assault is busy and GA is slow.
A really good technique is to make a bunch of friends by sending requests. You will be able to see where and when they are playing. You can then join their game and not be in a lobby.
What most do is give that lobby 3-5 mins to fill. Waiting on other games to complete and matchmake will send players to open lobbies. If nothing fills, quit and relaunch the mode and see if the AI will put you in another lobby.
@AOD_Major1nethanks for the suggestions but these aren't really long term solutions, Imagine a new player buys the game they are going to run into the same issue, uninstall and get a refund
And yet DICE claims player numbers are back to launch numbers. I highly doubt this claim. Either that or they're all on console. PC servers are almost entirely dead.
its bad on consoles too.
Have not gotten a game in Strike for 9 months now. So so so very bored of Galatic Assault and Supremacy is much the same.
Same here, it is impossible to find people on Brazil server (50ms ping) before the update at least i was able to super quick connect on Virginia (145ms), now I only get empty lobbies and eternal waiting.
It's a shame EA won't pay attention to this threads, 1 year of complains, and 0 responses / solutions.
