T4 and T5 are pretty much unplayable tonight with excessive queue times. Got free ships, can't use free ships. The countdowns show like 180 BBs and 7 cruisers, 3 DDs etc.

This is a good thing really. Imagine throwing a party and nobody came...

 

However I think you're getting at server limitations, perhaps data pipeline restrictions relating to traffic?

Thats what happens when the most anticipated ship line is dropped. 

 

Some of us have been waiting for RN BBs since the game launched. 

 

For what its worth, I'm not contributing to the que times (yet ;)  ). Silly university classes are interfering with it...

It's the stupid MM preventing All BB games. Or madhouse games with a team with 10 BBs and 2 DDs against a team with 12 BBs.

One of the dumber mechanics.

Guess you never waited for a raid group in [other game] for hours.

Also, this is inaccurate.
The problem isn't the players. In that case, it's filling out.
In this, that the MM isn't letting people through.

It could just go, here's 24 players. GO.
Here's 2 CVs, match them, and oh, 22 Battleships.

There's  no need for the MM to line up teams the way it does, unlike filling out a raid group. Only Carriers carry enough weight to NEED to be matched.
A team can perform absolutely adequately without Cruisers or Destroyers.

It's not just the BB queue that's [edited], it's everyone's is janked, which is stupid because it's not a lack of players.

It's not just upper tiers. I played a tier 1 game to test out the new gun flashes, waited forever to get in game and when I got in, game started almost immediately. I think it is WG servers and not us. Same crap that went on on July 4th. Wouldn't be surprised to get a "Server Overloaded" message like we did back then.

T1 is not that populated so it's very common to have a long wait.

What??? I usually get in tier 1 PvE IMMEDIATELY. Are you playing on the US server???? They fill in vacancies with bots so there should BE NO wait.

Ah you didnt specify so I figured PVP. Yeah PVE T1 should be 30 seconds max like all other PVE matches.

Wouldn't know about the delays; grinding through the last few xp of my KM 19 point captain in Prinz Eugen. Played three games this morning before work, all I saw was a Conqueror, and a Monarch. Guess the mobs haven't fxp'd that high yet. Probably by tonight when I get home.

This happens every time a new line is added to the game. Wait a few days and the MM will go back to normal.

This happens whenever a ship line drops. Play a different class and you will jump right in.

New line of ships, same phenom every time...Took my RN BBs out in Co-op to test drive, played 1 game in Random in Iron Duke, did well in her first outing with a Dreadnought award and a win, Had enough Free XP accumulated to zoom through to Queen Elizabeth and King George V and enough credits and Free XP left over to fully upgrade all except KGV, for which I shall have to grind some Free XP to get the B hull, FC and engine upgrades. I like what I have seen so far. They will be a challenge to play well. Some folks will complain about them being OP but their comparatively low health pool compared to other BBs at the same tier make them prime AP targets at all tiers. I don't intend to grind the T8-9-10 RN paper BBs, let the hardcore folks do that. Too much of a history buff, this old guy is...

Calling it a night for the simple reason that I had to uninstall the game from C drive (the defaullt install location) and then re-install it on my D drive due to drive space limitations on my C drive which caused Windows 10 to crash the game due to the reserved swap file buffer size required in Windows. Took three hours to re-install, which killed my daytime playtime due to my unexpected irregular workload! Hey, I'm retired, after all! Check my posts on the crash and install problems in various threads if you are having trouble with the upgrade installing and running properly on your machines. Most of the problems the folks have had seem to be similar to mine.

3 minute wait times makes it unplayable?  I shudder to think of how ill-prepared a person could be in life if they lack patience to such an extreme, not to mention the emotional fragility to have to post about it.  I like the added queue times, gives me a couple minutes to toss the laundry in the dryer or fold my wife's never-ending supply of yoga pants (you know, to score points for the upcoming football season).  It's funny, you pull one out and the legs are intertwined in another, so you pull that out and that's also intertwined in a third... like when those magicians pull out those string of flags all tied together.  Why on earth she needs 50 pairs of yoga pants... maybe to go with the 50 pairs of Manolo Blahniks and Louboutins in the closet. Silly girls... but I digress.

 

Seriously, if you can't handle a couple minutes wait, you should really take some time to reflect on that... because... wow.
