So, just spent 20 minutes waiting in queue for a battle to test out tier X GA aircraft.

 

WG, if the battles are full of bots, why does it take this long to start a Conquest match?

 

PS:  Even after those 20 minutes, I didn't get a battle.  I got disconnected from server instead.  :izmena:

Most likely low population, you need at least 1 live person on the other side.

 

A lot of the community complained during 1st and 2nd round of testing as they were not invited, but now that it is open to everyone... nobody shows.

 

I have been playing for 2-3 hours during peak time here a whopping 30 - 40 people are online testing, which may be considered significant as it represents 10% of our total population online... but definitely not in line with the amount of complaints for not being able to test.

 

Most people tried it, didn't like it, then gave up, they don't know what participating in the test actually means.  They leave it up to others, and complain when others make bad decisions.

Nope, same thing here, 1 battle so far at T-10. Wanted to see how the Swift compares to the live server version.

I apologize for the queue times, I'll make sure that this gets reported to the developers. I'm seeing this too. The best thing it to try a different tier.

The tiers keep on moving...that's the problem.

Also if you guys had hangar chat and chat channels working, we could coordinate group count-ins and this wouldn't be an issue... Even first round of testing with 5 people online, Sinister and I were getting instant battles.

Tried Javelin, waited a lot, failed to play
Tried again, failed again. gave up and returned to 1.9.11.

 

Even I want to Participate the test but really, queue time tooks too much time.

+ when we all were on Tier 3~4, I tried A5M and Blenheim Mk.IV,  both were awful :d

 

As joke, I think I can give my feedback after the release. because I can't play 2.0 :/


I guess, This pilot is worst teammate when you are on match, *Facepalm

You don't need to apologize, GP.  You're not the one that designed how this MM works.  The best thing is *not* to try a different tier, but for the MM to function so that whatever the player wants to play, a battle will be generated for them in short order.  At this point I don't care if there's a human on the opposition team or not!  I want to test a tier X, tier IX or tier VIII, the game should give me a battle.  I can tell you what my response would be on live if I wanted to play a high tier and the game wouldn't give me a battle...I sure as heck wouldn't choose to fly something I don't want to.  I would log out of the game and go through the many game titles I have to find something I *do* feel like doing.  Please forward on these concerns to the Devs, as my take on this issue is representative of a *lot* of the players here.

Yeah.  Pre-botland MM queue wait times were The Debil.

I  agree that the wait times are bad (low population in all tiers) but you can fly in a created room and fill it with bots when the population is low, it does not count for anything ie no daily missions, permanent score, true testing...

but if you want to test out the planes to see how they respond, I set up a couple just to get a feel for certain planes as I was not sure how they would respond, and did not want to wait for the Que times. It also gave me a chance to try out almost all of the maps (not enough time to try them all), and each map has certain objectives.
