E-gate at Taoyuan Airport. No passport stamp

Just came back from Taiwan few days ago. Upon exiting the Immigration, was ushered to the E-gate counter. Scanned passport and fingerprint and cleared. Did not get an EXIT stamp on my passport. Was hesitating at first to ask the officer on duty, but saw everyone else passing through the gate like me. So just heck care, want die all die together bah

Now my passport short of one stamp to collect

Didn't knew Taiwan had implemented this already. I though the e-gate is for locals only.

I was in Taiwan early March, same for me.
The departure area has a patrolling officer who saw that the queue for the stamping counters is adding up quickly, she asked about my passport's nationality and then guided me to the E gate. Fingerprint and passport scanned, and that's it.

I was back early March and End March, they signal ppl there too.
But i still walk the traditional way.
Of course at times the speedy immigration line.
Perhaps i shall try it end Sept and 19/10 and see if it is functional.
Guess exiting tourists, they are not particular about it.

Thanks for that info.
