    Well Conquest is the trademark mode. And BT has never gone either. You can play all maps on BT on all times, and this mode has a whole set of individual issues.

    Maybe learn to blame the right people for the right things?
    How is EA to blame for that? I agree that sadly conquest sucks... BUT the fault is entirely on this community.
    With every iteration after Bad Company 2, "tactical" gameplay was getting worst and worst, to this point.
    EA has made it so you win double points for every defence action.

    Check your map for transports.

    Theyre nearly always there. use them.

    And frankly, I never mind to run 150-200 meters.

    If you try the server browser you should find quite a few BT games. I could be wrong but it sounds like you're maybe matchmaking to the Conquest playlist.

    There's also matchmaking for the BT Pacific rotations, but I cant remember what it's called right now.

    I found this too. To me it seemed to change with bf1, I don't remember a huge amount of zerging on bf4. Maybe that's rose tinted glasses though.

    I'm on Xbox but should be the same. go to multiplayer and then on the right hand side underneath all the different game modes it says server list or something to that effect. Selecting that brings up all the servers that are populated. If you press triangle (I think) it brings up the search settings. If you change the settings you can search for a specific game mode or map etc.

    Also, welcome to battlefield, hope you enjoy it!

    i have all my profile, armory etc on left hand side , they i just click on the first box, the pacific box .....is there more multi i'm not seeing?

    Yes. Rather than select Pacific select the top option in that list, I think it's says 'play now' or something, it's above 'your company'. That takes you to a new page where you select multiplayer, that takes you to another page that has the game mode listed on the right hand side with server option at the bottom of that list.

    And yes you guessed it, dice are really bad at designing UI for their games which is why there are so many damn steps to find a game!

    Like Jamie said, you'd need to select 'play' on the first menu, then 'multiplayer' and one the next screen you should see 'advanced search' at the bottom of the list on the right.

    From there you just need to select the gamemode you want, your region and change the player count to 'none' and '1-5', as that'll show you populated matches :)

    Advanced search! That was what I was trying to think of! Nice one mate.

    I hardly ever play it. Squad spawning turned conquest into a confusing chaotic mess imho. Breakthrough is chaotic but at least you know roughly where the enemy are coming from. How about a flag spawn only version on conquest pls Dice.

    Does BF even have a great mode any more?      Conquest became Zerg and ring around the rosie etc.  And just got worse. 

    And BT gets so repetitive and monotonous.   And even  suffers from Zerg many times.

    Not to mention it's totally unrealistic. Can you imagine real solders doing all that running around in circles? 😂🤣😂

    I've always preferred conquest in Battlefield games but I just don't think most of the maps in BFV are well designed in conquest. There isn't that sense of a frontline I get from older games. Most maps in BFV feel circular in design, leading to a very round about, flag hopping gameplay; often 4 flags circling a central flag. I feel this also leads to a lot of wasted space in a lot of maps.
     
    It's one of the reasons I mostly played Frontlines when it was still available and why I really only play Breakthrough now. I haven't even tried Al Sundan or the Pacific maps in conquest yet.

    Frontlines is great, they need to bring it back.
