Seems to be random.  Happens to me sometimes when it has been under 10 seconds in queue.

This has happened to me before and I am wondering if this happened to the rest of the community as well

So I was waiting for a TIer 9 game for 2 minutes and decided to leave queue since it said no opponent found.

I left the queue successfully and played a tier 3 bomber.

After finishing my game at tier 3, I saw a battle result of my tier 9 plane.

 

Spoiler

Well ya it happens a lot & there has been several threads posted about it. WG says they are working on it Soon™.

Best thing to do now is if you go into queue plan to stay in it till you get a game or it spits you back to hangar.

We are still gathering Reports of this to investigate the cause.

​Had it happen yesterday and today on P-80A plane every time. No radar, no other planes in Tab, no score with alt, no indication what side the other planes are on.

Tried flying my P-47N, loaded into an empty battle. Game crashed, I restarted, and now my P-47 has been “locked in battle” for over 30 minutes...

Try clearing your cache. I had something similar happen, where me and a lot of people loaded into a never-ending glitched battle. Not even the bots could play. Clearing the cache set my plane free
This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

After 3 restarts (2 completely shutting down my computer), it seemed to fix - although later in the night, the P-47N would be “unavailable, in combat” two more times without having been selected; that was fixed with a simple logout. :/ Was kinda hoping to focus on that plane yesterday.

Yeah , I was in a flight yesterday, and we "squalled" the entire team , "was a monster" game, but our planes returned like 30 min later....and we did not get the win , or even credit of this game ....oh well ..... not life changing or anything.

Tried their black screen patch...worked only a day before, back to being booted and or frozen/phantom battle. SMH giving up this mess for awhile.

I had this occuring several times in the past days.

 

Upon waiting to get into a game for several for minutes I finally returned to hangar. Played another plane or exited the app then.

Later I will get a battle report for a battle in the plane I left queue with. Of course with great results XP and credits related.

 

Furthermore exiting the game will often leave the WoWP process running which has to be terminated in Task Manager.

 

Game looks to be in a terrible technical state, thinking about finally uninstalling it.

Right. I have had the phantom game crashes too. Ghost game with just myself when I press tab. Black screen. Quit game from task manager. Log back in. No history of game. Plane is back in the hanger. So at least it does not mess with your win rate. It still is a bit annoying though.

It is if you leave the queue. I have a theory about why it's random that makes sense to me. If it matches you up against only one player, it will wait for you to join the match for something like five minutes, before ending the match without it being played. This, along with crashes contributes to those games where you are in pre-game screen "waiting for players" for five minutes before it ends and sends you back to the hanger. On the other hand, if you are put in a match with more than one other person the match will go ahead and you will get a phantom game result from a game that was actually played.

Like I said, only a theory but it makes sense to me. The cause of it though is indeed leaving the queue.
