Dear WG,

Following the last update it's taking way too much time to enter battle: 1;45 -1;55 every single time (not playing arties.

This is simply NOT ACCEPTABLE: if a game takes 7 minutes it means you LOSE 3 more minutes just to ENTER/EXIT game:

2 minutes roughly for wainting time and about 30 seconds to exit battle.

This IS NOT ACCEPTABLE, no matter what you may say that you improved MM, bla bla.

TIME is the MOST PRECIOUS resource in the GAME, for all of us. NObody brings us back the time we lose in this game.

So, basically 2 minutes of waiting time multiplied by 10 000 games = 20 000 minutes = 333 hours !!!

= 14 DAYYSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS lost in waiting time !

 

14 DAYS of our lives !

 

Do something or we will quit the game, there is no sense waiting so much, especially after the Team Battles was withdrawn.

BTW: bring back Team battles, you did a big mistake discountiniuing them.

 

Waiting time should NEVER, EVER be more than 45 seconds, even if it's a bad MM.

There are many reasons for this depending on what tier and class you play at any given time. Low tier population, as if you play tier 1 at 7 AM and you are the only one in wait for a tier 1 battle. Or class overpopulation that can occur at peak hours. As lights on high tiers have 4-5 on each team as is, or mid tier with TD's that have 4-5 as is. So there you can wait more than 45 seconds at times if 60% of players in wait on your tier is in the same class as you. If the "fix" then would be to make 15 vs 15 light matches to get MM going and for you not to wait less then 45 seconds. I suspect the other group that did complain to get MM as it is now, would leave instead vs "We".

Apart from the Tier & time of day you are playing, as described by Balc0ra, it is also a result of the MM system we have since update 1.?

I agree there is a problem but you need to realize that the wait is still much better then the #%$

I have a great idea how to counter this waiting time problem: we just mix teams more, so that one team might have more heavies or TDs or medium tanks than the other, and we allow +/-3 or even +/-4 tier spread, while removing templates. Would that be helpful?

Greetings Commander,

We are sorry to hear of your dissatisfaction with waiting times. 

Could you you be a little more specific as to the TIME of DAY, the VEHICLE you chose and the SERVER you were playing on?

This might help find an explanation for the wait times.

Demanding stuff on the forums like "Change this or that else I/we will ..."

never worked, why should it now?

Noticed the wait times werer longer last night, we had the timer run out twice playing platoons at tier 8 + 9 so perhaps they have tweaked something

Stop playing low tiers then. Assuming you are playing on a reroll account since the one you posted from doesn´t have any battles the last 60 days.

Does it really take 30 seconds to exit a battle?  It certainly never used to.

 

Also, if he's played less than 2k battles why is he multiplying 2 by 10k in his calculation?

I play EU 1 mainly, and rarely EU2/

Daytime only, until 20h00 maximum.

But instead of conetrating on mmy playtime, wit would be better to acknowledge the problem I mentionend.

And speaking of...huh...better MM ? No way: my win rate dropped since the implementation of new MM system.

Please understand that, if YOU may not be concerned, for a player playing the game 3 hours during daytime, it can really be a problem ( not related to low tiers whatsoever).

 

IMPORTANT : the wating time seems to be ALWAYS LONGER than 1:30 when I am using 200% reserves.

This is neither fair or normal. Shame on you Wg for such practices.

I have complains about cool down timer. I hate it since day 1. Nothing change. 10 seconds is more than enough for cooldown

Brilliant!!!

11:29 Added after 1 minute
Noticed long entering time in tier 5 as well, this weekend. Not so in tier 6 or 7. Must be lower tiers related.
