Is it just me that sits in queue with 500+ people, but has to wait up to a full minute before getting queued in a game, or do more people 'suffer' from this queue delay so to say?

Just curious if this is just completly random.

From what I see last days from tier 6 to 10 the worst time is for tier 7.

tier 7?

yeah..since last year, WG gave almost everyone Super hellcat, which broke the MM of tier 7

later tankreward gave panther m10/scorpion etc (tier 7 premium tank) 

so it has been affecting  MM...even now.

This kind of threads tell me that people don't understand what consequences things like map blocking, map rotation or tank mirroring have on the MM. The MM works in a way that it drops the "restrictions" for a match it can after set time has passed, and that's why it takes a certain amount of time to find a match. For example if you play first match in a tank, the MM will spend 40-50s to try to find you a top tier match. If it doesn't find one, it will drop that "restriction" after 40-50s. The more of these "restrictions" that players can alter are added, the more the queue times increase.

I can't confirm anything. But I am pretty sure WG are having problems with the MM queue times because of the new server. Things are not running 100% as they should. These long queue times have been present in the past and they have been recognized as errors that have later been fixed.

Tier VII mm queue has been borked since long before EU3, especially if you queue a platoon of tier VII limited matchmaking tanks.

 

It's a shame WG removed the display of numbers of tanks queuing in each tier due to people using it to game the system.

Mapblocking and Maprotation has nothing to do with the speed the MM needs to create a match with 2x15 tanks, mirror by class.

MM creates a match, then picks a map randomally

And that map can’t be one that any of the thirty players have blocked. The more constraints in place the more difficult it will be for the MM to find the correct players in the queue.

I'm pretty sure people unlocking the IS2S isnt helping either. Tier 7 is really bad, cant get into a game without waiting at least a minute.

I feel like I have to wait longer to start a battle whenever I activate a time limited consumable. But it could be like watching a kettle, always feels longer.

Hmm yes you are right. 

Well no doubt it's all putting a lot of pressure on the MM, and increasing with the amount of parameters that has been added to the game

Since that seems to be happening only for tier 7 what you are saying isnt likely to be the reason.

Can confirm yesterday tier 7 was hit the most. Played my s51, su152 and t28htc. Que times up to 2min.

All other tiers lighting fast join in time.

Not complaining, gave me a chance to read up on my phone messages.

Please stop complaining about queue times, they'll probably fix that by removing arty limit in battles / mapblocking / class balancing. I can tell you waiting 2 minutes isn't that bad compared to what the mm had been and/or could be.

I  pretty much always connect between 2-10 seconds regardless of tier, but for the last few weeks there has been many times, when playing my T20 Tier7, that I queue for upto 30 seconds.
