Trying to get in a game with 100 players waiting and it keeps timing out. Takes me 15 minutes to get in a game with a T9 light tank. Anyone else having trouble with excessive delays getting into random games?

 

Never had a problem before.

 

On the ANZ server

Always best to check how many people are online when attempting to get into one of the fringe tiers - eg low tiers or in tanks that aren't popular (arty / high tier lights).

It may have something to do with the unique levels of customer care applied by Wargaming and players voting with their feet.

Or maybe it's because it's a Monday and people are working or at school.

It is a public holiday in WA and most folks are already at home from work/ school in the Eastern States...

Maybe everybody's too busy meeting up with the neighbours and throwing shrimp on the barbie.

 

Heck I know, I ain't Aussie.

I'll fire up the T54LT on ANZ when the server pop's over 1k; but anything under that, I jump in the Bromwell and do donuts.

 

Maybe you stumbled on a particularly bad time to play 9LT (really I would have picked another tank after 1 timeout), but the last week or so I haven't waited more than 3 minutes to get a match.

 

Nor have I played today either, sooooooo.........make of it what you will:P

except that even after 38K games you can’t see that there was around 400 players logged in at that time of the day.

I believe that is exactly the point OP is making.

so he is complaining he can’t get into a game with Low server pop, but previously he hasn’t had a problem? I believe you are wrong.

*tin foil hat on*

 

Company stooge trying to reinforce matchmaking broken by tier 8 pmm tonks :P

 

*real response*

 

Jump into general chat on ANZ when server pop is under 1k - you'll find that other players happily communicate and co-ordinate tonks and tiers to get matches. There's alot of "let's play t6" etc.


The first 9000 were a struggle ... I have fun now.

I thought it would have been due to the patented MM and it is having a hard time finding enough other players to meet the criteria to match to allow him to have a win

This is what happens every day. This has been made quite clear to the staff here. Months they have known. Months to address the issue I told them what to do to fix it. WG are bleeding customers because they do not address and fix problems customers are having

So, uh, how long before WG Asia declares the ANZ server to not be worth the money spent keeping it up?
