Why we will never see a different gamemode type (2v2/3v3/etc)

Simply the programms at anet can't handle the code. The people that built up the game are long gone. Look at ATs. The moment they put swiss stuff into the code they started breaking and it's been so bad they had to cancel monthly. Today's squad UI - literal whole squads crashing on ready check. The code is a kitten mess. There is just no way they can ever implement any new piece of UI to the game without it being bug ridden for months on end. That's why there's no 2v2 ques. I'm p sure they know it would bring lots of players but who cares lmao right its gemstore game anyway lolkekxd. Last time we had 2v2 ATs event like what 40% of them bugged? They never ended up realeasing the promised 3v3 event. There's no hope.

    There's also the thing too that it'll completely decimate whatever's left of Conquest's ever shrinking populace. That's also a reason why they won't ever have it as a permanent addition. In a perfect pvp world, you'd have 2v2/3v3 ranked queueables with leaderboards, 1-5 mixed ranked queue again. GvG support and your ATs for real competitions. We live in the opposite universe where this exists.

    This seems to be the biggest problem with Arenanet. It's a boring answer not many people find exciting like certain big name people leaving the game, or the layoffs. But there is something fundamentally wrong with the actual production pipeline. Like Anet needs to figure out how to get a team of under the hood people to actually hammer out the problems with the production pipeline. It's insane looking at the old two-week content cadence and looking how absolutely glacial the release and update schedule has grown.

    We shouldn't forget about chrono shatters and swipe.

    Yep that's what we've heard bits and pieces of. The game engine is ancient and suffers anything from combat pathing problems, teleport skill problems, skill jams associated with ping; all the way to map phasing, player count limit in maps, PvP queue system issues with player de-registration from map after match, and automation in tournaments.

    Whew, it's not mentioned much but it's a 7-year-old game with ever more stuff piled on its system and more expectations for things to work with new coding. Maybe it's time to do a big game engine upgrade for the next expansion - I'm sure the game is not doing too badly despite how we doom and gloom all the time on the forums. PvE has always thrived and more than a lot of other MMOs.
