Long time player here. I started playing Zero-K like 8 years ago and I enjoyed the game a lot. Small team battles up to 4 v 4 were my favorite, because it was casual enough that you didn't have to always do your best, but if you played well, you could still make a huge impact on the result of the match. At some point I stopped playing Zero-k due to reasons I don't even remember myself.
So anyway, I was trying to return to Zero-K, but every time I try to look for a match, it's always just one 32 player clusterfuck room. Of course, there were clusterfuck matches back in my day too, but those weren't the main attraction, so to speak. Finding a normal 2 v 2 or 3 v 3 match was never an issue. Do people not play small team matches anymore? Did the game change direction while I was gone?
