Yep, I have this issue as well on PC, I'm in Western Australia and can't find any match except the Ewok Hunt game mode, this is disgustingly poor of DICE (EA are so done in my book) they don't even address how technically * this game is.
I tried for 2 hours the other day, queuing with my family members and tried going solo and couldn't find players in any of main modes. Restarted the game 4 times, re-made the lobby and couldn't get players at all...
This was such a waste of money, paying $62 on launch was a mistake, we're nearly 5 months from release and I've got more issues than what I started with..
I'm from South America, i've bought it last friday, i did not play until sunday. Could'nt find a single match in the Brasilian DC, i only managed to play in MP, in 40 ppl mode in the us servers, but the lag is unbearable. i've never could play any other mod.
I have the same problem, I can find a lobby, but i'm the only one in it. BTW i'm in Australia/Oceania servers.
I have not been able to play a single game of Ewok Hunt since it was launched. Not 1 game. Every time I join a game the server is empty and it never fills no matter how long I wait. I have tried changing my Ping Site in the menu and this made no difference.
It is not just Ewok hunt that is always emtpy, Strike mode is also always empty, and this is my favorite mode. If these issues are not fixed then I want my money back!
I am in South Africa.
This happened to me after 2 April, after big patch. Before I was able to find local matches, now nothing!
Im in South Africa and have to use Ireland/Germany. UK also empty lobbies for some reason.
My brother in New Zealand have the same issue.
Very disappointed in EA. I'm in South Africa and haven't been able to find a single lobby with players in for the last two weeks. This is a perfect example of how a good game goes bad. I've lost all interest!
Maybe it's temporary solution but worth to try. If you buy 1 month sub of ping improvement program you can set connection to program server for example Frankfurt (manualy connection do not use optimal trade route) . Than game will recognise you that you are from Germany and will connect you to the Germany servers where it;s possible to do Starfighter and Galactic Assault matches. For these modes queue is like 5 sec in German servers. Problem is strike mode. Some time ago I was using WTfast for other game and for me it worked like that (are many similiar programs on market). Never tried this in Battlefront so will be wise to ask support of the program you choose if it will work like that. But from Africa to Frankfurt server even with ping impovement program ping will be high so decision is yours. Maybe for start use program trial to check if this will help.
