Is it just me, or have there been a lot more times recently when a game doesn't start within 5 minutes?

 

I have found in the last two weeks that 50% of my attempts to join a new Random Battle time out without successfully joining a game.

 

Is anyone else noticing this recently on the AUS server?

ANZ server is tough to get a battle in the lower tiers. Mid and upper tiers are usually fine. And of course there's always the HK server.

depends on time of day. Check the number of players on the server (shown upper left of screen). Evening you can usually get a battle - IF you're playing tier 5+. low tiers you're best using HK server (as Ezz explained).

The micro patch since your post has had this effect for me: (NB: for me. Other individuals will see differences). But this is what I saw:

 

8 AM on ANZ Server.

Changed to HK (Only after some difficulty. It didnt want me to do it for a while)

KV1S   -  L  Widepark (Defeat smashed immediately)
T-127  - L Ensk (Win. Killed 2 I could pen)
PzIIJ  - Timed out
PzIIJ  - L Empire's Border (Defeat, top tier not able to be penned. Could not spot cap. Using this tank I paid money for LOST us the game. Lot of abuse from Matilda player who obviously doesnt know I cant pen, even with Gold ammo)
PzIIJ  - L Mannerheim Line (Win, One round penned a tier 3 - 1 kill. 14 hp damage done. Along for the ride).
PzIIJ  - L Prokhorovka (Win, did well, 5x exp - 2 kills)
Luchs  - L Minsk (Defeat. Did some spotting damage. Got 1 kill).
Luchs  - L Erlenberg (Defeat)

M2Med  - H Himmelsdorf (Win - 5 kills)

18 Battles. 26 kills. 12 Battles as lower tier (66%) 6 wins (33%)

At Lunch time Australia swapped back to ANZ. 260 people on.

M2Med  - L El Halluf (Win 7 bots)
T-127  - TIMED OUT
T-127  - L Murovanka (Win 7 bots)
Pz38H  - TIMED OUT
Pz38H  - TIMED OUT
Pz38H  - TIMED OUT
Su-18  - TIMED OUT
Su-18  - TIMED OUT
KV1S   - H Mannerheim Line (Defeat 7 bots - 1 kill)

PzIVH  - H Redshire
ChurchI- H Live Oaks (Win - High Calibre - 3 kills)
PzIVH  - H Cliff (Defeat - 1 kill)

19 Battles. 34+ kills. 17 Battles as high tier (89%). 100% of tier 5 games High. 8 Wins (47%)  100% of tier 3 low. (100% wins). (52% WR all over).   6 of 8 low tier games timed out regardless of WG new bots introduction to stop this.

ANZ Server late evening (1400+ souls)

VK3001H- H OVerlord (Defeat - 2 kills)
PzIVH  - L Empire's Border (Win - 1 kill)
VK3001H- L Tundra (Win - 1 kill)
PzIIJ  - H Abbey (Defeat Steel Wall Defender cool headed - 4 kills)
PzIIJ  - H Mines (Win Confederate - 3 kills)
PzIIJ  - L Karelia (Draw - 1 kill)
Pz38H  - L Abbey (Win Cool Headed)
Pz38H  - L Himmelsdorf (Defeat - 1 kill)
PzII   - L Himmelsdorf (Win - 3 kills)
T67    - L Widepark (Defeat - 1 kill)
T67    - H Ruinberg (Defeat - 3 kills)
Matilda- H Steppes (Defeat - 3 kills)
Matilda- H Mines (Win - 3 kills)
ELC    - H Siegfried Line (Win 1 kill)

14 Battles. 27 kills. 7 Battles as high tier. (50%) ..... Significant difference. Tier 5 games became 3 out of 6 High. (50%). Two tier 4 games were High (100%) Of 6 tier 2 and 3 games, 2 were high (33%). Total high games in tiers 4-2 were 50%.

TOTAL FOR DAY - 51 BATTLES. AROUND 88 KILLS. 4 HIGH CALIBRE. 3 CONFEDERATE. 1 STEEL WALL, 1 DEFENDER, 2 COOL HEADED.

SO, IF YOU WANT TO PLAY TIER 1-4 ON AUSTRALIAN SERVER BEFORE EVENING YOU WILL FIND IT DIFFICULT, EVEN WITH NEW BOTS INCLUDED SYSTEM, TO GET A GAME. SIMPLY NOT ENOUGH PEOPLE PLAYING TIER 4 OR LESS. SO MAYBE EVEN MORE BOTS WILL BE NEEDED TO SAVE LOWER TIERS ON THIS SERVER. DURING DAY
 TIER 5 IS PERFECT. ALWAYS HIGH TIER. PROBABLY BECAUSE THERE ARE ENOUGH PEOPLE PLAYING THIS TIER THAT, WITH THE ADDITION OF BOTS, A GAME CAN BE GENERATED. FROM 6PM ONWARDS THINGS CHANGE. ENOUGH PLAYERS CHOOSING TIER 6 THAT HALF YOUR TIER 5 GAMES BECOME LOW TIER GAMES WITHOUT BOTS. NOW, WITH 4X MORE PLAYERS, LOW TIER GAMES ARE POSSIBLE. ALL 8 LOWER TIER GAMES DIDNT TIME OUT. BOTS FEATURED IN THE LOWER TIER GAMES, BUT I DID NOT NOTE HOW MANY OR WHICH GAMES. SORRY. FORGOT.

RESULT: YOU WANT TO PLAY TIER 5 DURING DAY. AS EVENING PROGRESSES, START PLAYING LOWER TIERS. I DID NOT TEST TIERS 6 AND UP. PROBABLY A STANDARD OF BETWEEN 33-50% LOW TIER.
