    I like playing FFA games with 4+ players, of late there's been a complete lack of FFA games of any kind and a low number of TEAM games too. Are people playing galactic war/skirmish, modded games, private servers or just 1v1 quick games?

    Are there any stats on number of players and best times to play?

    Also what is with FFA games with teams and can I get a filter to ignore them?

    Once the matchmaking was put into the game I started to see less lobbies and a lot more people playing 1v1s. On top of that, a lot of people have been getting in 1v1 practice for the two tournaments recently.

    I have been doing some team games too but mostly just to play and test my own mod.

    I usually don't stray away from single player, or modded single player.

    But I have been known to play the occasional comp stomp with randoms.

    I was playing the game "final exams" up until yesterday, but I think I'm done with it for now. I'm gonna start playing PA some more soon. :p

    I like team games with shared army the most. Played several times in a team with a friend and destroyed everybody with the annihillaser :) 1 vs 1 ranked isn't really enjoyable since there are only a few planets to play on so it gets boring fast so I just stopped playing it.

    FFA 7-10 slots, preferably on single 450-600 planet. Sometimes with alliances.
    So much fun.

    Mainly 2vs2vs2 or 3vs3 on a medium sized system (4-6 planets) or all out 10 players ffa (but not easy to find them these days). Sometimes 1vs1.

    Tried 1 galactic war match some week ago :) That's pretty much it, not so much into skirmishes or pvp against complete strangers. Maybe i'm just waiting for something new to appear for the game... else it'll propably just remain there in the steam's list.

    I used to play FFA quite a lot, but now play 1v1 ranked matches. The one time I wanted to play a FFA hardly anyone was there :(

    So, to sum up
    ~1v1 matchmaking
    ~more Mods, more people playing those
    ~and more community in PTE

    Should modded games show up in the server browser as I've only seen a couple so far?

    I hopped onto the PTE when I was having trouble finding a game and that was just as empty. :/

    Yes, default in the PTE and stable.
    You can filter (shared) TeamArmys games in the left hand pane under mode.
