I noticed that the totalnumbers on eu1 and eu2 is hovering around 100k,  but the server que seems significal longer than normal. I allready have premimum account and perferencial queing and matchmaking, so it cant be that is causeing it for me. So are WG inflating the total players on their server to seems attactive but we/I noticed it with longer quetimes?

Queue times are longer because of the recent changes to MM. It's not very surprising.

Seriously, don't you guys keep track of who creates a thread about what? Why do you even bother responding seriously? :teethhappy: :popcorn:

Maybe because not many people are playing Tier 1 this weekend ?

A hat is not enough for this one...

 

 

Actually, I might've realized what our beloved ****poster PayMore is talking about... Dude, you know they updated how the matchmaker works, right? It takes a bit more time to make better matches, less bottom tier games, etc.

 

I personally haven't noticed much difference, apart from the matches being better. :rolleyes:

You get preferential treatment? How did you manage that?

Also, which tiers and mode are you playing? And at what time of day? With an event like FL going on, there could be a lack of T8's available at times for randoms.
