I just got the Scorpion tier 7 from tank rewards and every time I press battle I have to wait 1 to 2 minutes to get a game. Anybody else getting this? 

No other tank except my lefh has an abnormally long queue time. Any other tank it's usually less than 30 seconds. Is there a shortage of tier 7 tanks or something? :amazed:

 

kinda sucks to wait so much just to get a game where I lose 15-5.

I imagine a lot of players have it by now so it's probably clogging up the MM, same as the Super Hellcat.

 

Both being tier 7...tier 7 MM right now is properly broken. :mellow:

Shortage? It can be overpopulation too. Most might have gotten theirs and want to test it. We did see the same with the French M10 when it came, or even now recently with the Super Hellcats. Combine that with the 2nd tier 7 TD reward in a short time for some. And there might not be enough to go around for all the battles to move out right away I suspect.

Perfect for those who got personal missions requiring damage to TDs though  :P

Strange, there isn't too many SH or scorpions in my battles. 1 or 2 a team.

Been playing tier 7 meds "Leo/Comet" today. 5 to 15 sec wait. Super Hellcat. About 60 to 90 sec wait.

Well yeah, less HP and lower tiers MM is better because you can farm newbies.

Tier 7 matchnmaking for some reason takes ages.

 

Reporting to WG's support gives some run around answer "Not enough players so blaa blaa". Meanwhile there are over 1k people in queue.

Yeah, I don't think it's due to underpopulation. But rather overpopulation on some classes. As TD's takes ages.

It happens whether the servers are dead quiet overnight or when there are upwards of 100k players on the servers with 2k sitting in the queue, so that answer's just another head in the sand excuse from WG because they can't be bothered to look at, nevermind actually fix, an obvious ongoing MM problem of their own inept creation because it presumably doesn't involve pointlessly tinkering with Tier 8 yet again.

Except if it were a case of an overpopulation of tanks of whatever class & tier in the queue, you'd think the game would auto-compensate by making more same tier matches to quickly free up the queue and get people playing, rather than leaving the Tier 5/6/7 TD's and LT's in particular sitting in the queue for the full 90 seconds each time before dumping them into yet another battle as bottom tier piñatas...

 

The sad thing is, even if the Tier 5/6/7 LT's and TD's were under-represented in the queue, I rather suspect they'd likely still be left waiting for the full 90 seconds almost every single time you hit the Battle button.

Tier 7 takes a while no matter how full the servers are. Tier 5 and 6 are instant, and so are tier 8-10, but tier 7 specifically is always long. Been this way for months. I wonder if they're testing out something at tier 7? Like maybe one month with more same-tier MM for tier 7, and then one month with less, to see how it affects the players?

wait a few days and you probably will see the first wave of Panther M10's to enter the que at tier 7 as well
