It's not my fault it takes your current MM up to 1 minute to create a battle and losing a fair chunk of booster gains is starting to get old. So while I can appreciate the clock running between battles and any garage down time I can't really stomach watching these accumulative minutes of X 300% gains wasting away while MM is dorking around with constructing a battle.

"We" asked for the MM to be changed, so yes "we" are the fault for that.

If that bothers you, consider how much time you've already spent staring at the screen waiting for WG's equivalent of lootboxes to open up and show you all the rewards. Sure it's only a second or two each time, but that adds up.

Well everyone ink you have said something about the MM over the years. Thus the change was made, and thus it takes longer. Unless you don't mind +2 constantly. As I would not mind that as a setting. As in telling the MM not to wait to get me in less +2 games, and just keep it going. As some missions are a bit MM dependent. And getting +0 games is not always ideal.

My arguments so far as MM was ever concerned was to randoms of +-1 tier max. This isn't the case, there are still 3 arty per team, still bottom tier almost every battle, still massively tilted battles in regards to construction of team i.e. 1 team gets 3 Type5 tanks while the other get useless tank so what you say is somewhat fine if MM improved things which arguably it didn't so you know... the changes expanded MM time for what? the same ol same ol? only now if you pop 2hr PRs X3 you have to cumulatively lose large chunks of time. It's not a rant it's a request. I think it's fair. If you clicked battle arguably the time lost after that is before battle starts is not anything within a players control.

1 minute queue time? Never happens to me. What did you do, queue as arty in Frontline last weekend?

 

Good news though, if you start a battle while your booster is active your booster counts for that entire battle, no matter how much it takes beyond the actual timer. So you're well-compensated for any supposed time "lost".

 

I also suspect like everyone else you got your boosters for free, so are you really complaining about free stuff?

If i remember correctly, there actually was an option to skip the animations and open them all at once, or five at a time, dunno.

 

@OP i see where you're coming from, although i'd personally rather see personal reserves (as well as premium account) changed to apply for a certain number of battles instead of a time period.

Really? I'll keep an eye out next time I play.

Do share if you find that please, I really like the rewards but I don't need the animations every time. Given their randomness I'd rather check once in a while what I have BPs for.

Unfortunately there ain't such option for the current rewards (as far as i know). I was talking about the lootboxes from X-mas/New Year - the premium ones had that option and i thought those were the ones @1ncompetenc3 was referring to in his post. Sorry for the confusion, wasn't intentional.

Ah, yeah I remember that option from the holiday lootboxes. Oh well.

All the paid premium time I've wasted while sleeping, visiting my friends, having a beer at the pub... it's driving me crazy!

1 min queue, really on EU server? How unlucky are you?

Depends what tanks you are playing...
Preferential MM tanks are usually the ones with longest wait times (okay you are unlikely to be playing Pref Prems with an XP booster but you may be using a 300% crew booster on them)
And T4 Pref MM tanks are the very worst (as they can only play +0/-1 Tier games that really restricts the MM opportunities)
