I think there is a serious problem with matchmaking right now. I just spent nearly an hour searching for games in Elite and managed to only get in to maybe 3 games. I tried with both dlc enabled and disabled and no difference. It just comes up showing no games available. When it goes through the search it starts at 0% and hits 100% on each ping level in less than 2 seconds. You barely see it go through. And even when it slows down it only shows maybe 1 or 2. It used to show 50 games available even though it only would match up to maybe 4-5 sometimes. So I think the matchmaking protocols have been made too strict again or region locking is enabled once more.
This needs to be looked at because it is making it nearly impossible for me to play the new maps.
