What's with these long que times all the time? I pick a tier 7 light and get to wait 1-1:30 min for every battle. Nice waste of time from my boosters. It doesn't matter if there are 400 or 1000 players in the que.

 

This evening I got kicked from the que with reason "Maximum time in queue for battle has expired. Select another vehicle or try again later." Maximum que time is 5 min and I got kicked after exactly 1:30 min, with 2200 players in the que.
After that I had to wait another 1:30 min to get into my next battle. So.. I lose about 10min per 1 hour booster, only because of stupid que time. And no, I don't expect compensation, knowing Wargaming. Even getting a bunch of worst maps for light tanks, with teams that have no clue how to play. Much fun.

Same. Tried my EBR hothatch, each time 1.5 min before battle with ~ 1.5k in que.

Wanted to shoot some TDs for mission, majority of que is TD but in battle only 1-3...

If I get a long queue time I do the classic IT response "have you tried turning it off and on again" ;)

It's because of the 'new' MM template. You can look up the news articles. It specified this could be a consequence and everybody stated they were fine with it if it meant no more 3-5-7 MM and less chance of being bottom tier all the time.

It takes time for the system to place you in a team of tomatoes, bottom tier and on the side of the map you have less chance of winning from ;)

Thing is that even if there are 1000 players in the queue. It doesn't mean that all are around your tier. That and it's also about classes. Now on tier 5 by the looks of it, a huge majority are TD's, and lights seems to dominate tier 6 and 7 too. So it takes way longer to find a game as a TD or an LT around that tier now. But my tier 5 prem medium taking advantage of the crew % bonuses had to wait 10 sec at the most each game. My tier 6 MOE grind atm that's a TD had to wait 60 seconds each time.

The new mm is not the whole story, it began when ranked came on.. seems like some power for mm went to ranked..  lot's of people playing that..

Yesterday it was impossible to find a tier5 game under 2min.

So hard to match up SU-85 or M10 against 100s of other TDs.

Yup something fishy going on with MM, struggled all weekend to get quick match up,  even though 1-2k players in the queue.

 

Perhaps Skill can go conduct some more scientific tests

Yes it's a longer wait but better MM anyways you can use that queue time to carry out some other 'task' you know hoover, dust or even scratch your nether regions....

Please don't complain about queue times if you don't want to meet tier x on every tier 8 battles

I noticed the same thing last night.

 

What would be neat is if you could ready up a selection of tanks and have the Match Maker pick the one IT wants you to play.

 

Most of the time a player has a selection of daily doubles or premiums they want to play and don't really care which one the play.

 

I also thought it would be good if there were tier/class wait time estimates.  I know the valentine 2 always takes an age but a tier 8 light/med/heavy/td should go straight into a battle.

It's common and strange thing is I can clearly see there's 700->1k+ players waiting in the battle q and perfect mix of classes to get a battle going so it looks like it just freezes or something. Can't say there's been any noticeable improvement in MM over the old MM system that would justify this limbo either. Wait an age just to still be bottom tier and on Abbey "yay!"

It makes no sense because I had to wait more time when there were more players, like 1000 in the queue.

 

Maybe its because of the server performance, which is a good thing. I've been having some strange connection issues... hope they solve it.

You speak about tier 8 tanks and getting tier 10 battles. I spoke about none of them. I said I picked a tier 7 and got long que times. This topic has nothing to do with what you talk about.
