I'm not sure if it is just me but 15 minutes + waiting for a game using a level 4,5,6 or 7 tank is a unplayable.

 

Attached an image of 15 minute counter as proof as I gave up the will to see if it'd make 20.

 

Anyone else getting this ?

Its because of a new algorithm in the MM which continuously searches for the lowest WR players and groups them together. As more players join the queue, the MM struggles as it is spoiled for choice and it takes some time for the programme to sort the absolute lowest WR players together.

 

The good news is that this only happens when Canny is playing as the algorithm was written specifically to put these low WR players on his team...

Stop trolling OP on his 5th post.

 

 

i once waited for 30 minutes.

yup. 30

 

it was 3am and probably if I had reset the battle equest it would have let me go tbrough.

 

In your case probably a glitch as well, 

Le the other hand  there are many reason for a queue to drag on, like removing supremacy, enabling same controls, platooning two identical rare tanks (though honnestly it should be random, therefore I find the fact that the mm tries to match ur tank with those of the enemy’s team  absolutely annoying)


Read my guides there

I want just that, and replay files.

Ouch never had them that long, 5 minutes is rhe longest I’ve had, as merpug says it depends on quite a few factors and time of day is a big one, I often play very late at night, well early morning really - 2 or 3 am and I play my tanks on their birthdays.  The ones tiers iii & iv can wait several minutes even when solo with same control mode off, I give them 3 mins usually and hit home if nothing at that stage...

I keep getting beaten but getting better so its all good man :harp:. Major Eazy

Well I took advice and watched - this was between 6pm and 9pm last night.

 

I was told to sit and see which tiers had the most tanks, I even went back and got a level 5 again just so I could have a game. Then it was all teir 8 and above mainly...

 

I have found a few things though - PLATOONS give you almost instant gaming - longest wait 45 seconds.

 

Playing level 7,8 or 10 you could be 10 - 15 minutes and Ouch for minitelrose @ 30mins...

 

I was looking to buy premium, but part of me thinks that only being able to play 3 or 4 games an hour doesnt justify it - other part thinks its supporting a game I like...

 

Its a pain trying to do the missions, almost impossible...

 

Thanks for all your help and feedback though - much appreciated from a newbie.

Never had to wait that long. Maybe it's the rumoured newbie protect MM trying to stop you screwing up in higher tiers.

Had 17 mins in low tiers after 5.5. I guess the MM simply gave up as it should create any kind of team after 5 mins or kick you but nothing happened.

Played last night between 8pm and 10pm GMT and managed to get 8/9 games... Thats a terrible ratio of time v gameplay. I'm sat here now watching my level 7 @ 13 minutes while I type.

 

Missions are now pretty much impossible, tried tiers 5,6,7,8 and 10.

 

I think that while I really liked WoT B and even spent some cash on it its losing appeal and players rapidly.

 

Will try over the weekend but for sanity I think I might have to look elsewhere for a gaming fix if it continues.

 

Maybe they should put a queue counter when you join so you can see your chance of playing next. It gets frustrating when you see 14+ level 7 tanks 7+ level 7 and 9+ level 8 tanks and you've been sat for 5 minutes and you still dont get a game!!

By any chance do you play with keyboard and mouse and perhaps the same control mode option has reset?

Long delays have happened to me everal times when I have recently tried t2-t4 tanks, even if there are plenty of players in those tiers being matched. Either MM is buggy, or they are once again trying some new undocumented/uncommunicated ’feature’ of MM. Or both buggy and with experimental features.

 

Sidenote, the 5k matching rule has been completely changed. Have not played enough low tiers to try to figure out what replaced it.

Only time have waited around one minute is in a platoon with a couple of rareish tanks, took mm a while to find another vehicle the same for opposition. But if in normal games the queue goes on for more than 10 secs(very rare) I just leave battle queue and go in again....battle starts immediately.

And when I reach the gates of heaven, Saint Peter I will tell..."one more soldier reporting sir, I've served my time in hell".

That is my normal/old experience as well. But after the latest update low tiers are different, even with solo and common tech tree tank.

I haven't gone lower than tier6 for a while, is that where the issue is?

At least in my case t2 - t4 have many strange MM delays (I usually give up at 2 mins). Does not happen at high tiers.
