used to be that queues were near instant regardless of tier or time of the day

bots in randoms were unheard of, in fact, I don't think they were even set up to do that

it's peak gaming hours right now

Nope, late hours it was and still is common to wait a while and sometimes get smaller than 12 v 12. Heck I've had a 1v1 before late at night.

It's also possible they're intentionally  sabotaging the lower tiers so people would be forced to buy high tier ships or buy free xp to work their way up.

It is?

According to the timestamp, you're posting at 5:30 am EST.

There's been posts showing rampant queue dumps due to off-hours low queue numbers for years.

I've played since closed beta.  Queues were never near instant.

They're definitely driving a migration IMO.

Low tiers has become a ghost town, yet player numbers are consistent.

Although, "buying free XP" isn't really a thing. By the time you've ground out enough elite XP to convert, you've played enough to grind the line for free 

Besides, with the way they hand out free XP like candy, who needs to pay to convert?

And there are different ways to look at this. There's always been a lot of players who are all about getting to T10 ASAP. Newer players with that attitude aren't going to care so much, since they want "cooler" ships anyway. The FXP WG dishes out, in comparison to the first 2-3 years, only helps those players in their goal.

I will say that, before they did the 40% bottom tier thing, it was rare, and never primetime, that I had to wait more than 15-20 seconds for a match.
