I'm curious as to what you guys do when given repeated arbitrarily long wait times? I'm talking  the Que, wait till game starts, wait till you actually have control and then the 15 second to 1 minute long respawn times?  Not to mention the 10-45 second wait after finishing a game (if your even lucky to get that far without using task manager or cold restart to get away from the awesome programming of WG and friends) ends.

 

Now take that time collected and multiply that by how many games played, and you will find out you could learn to paint better than Bob Ross AND Learn a musical instrument in that time.  Or if you'r into physical fitness, imagine how many reps you could fit in. Or if your into fitness food in your mouth, you got plenty of time to meal prep even.

 

So WG, when can we pay you guys to have an 'express' que/times?

Best code they ever excreted is the line that makes the WG tab blink when in battle.

stretch, twist my neck and work out the cramps from gripping the mouse too tight

 

if the previous battle was stressful, and they usually are... i'm wound up as tightly as a watch spring

 

ask your grandpa what a watch spring is

It's all about the alt+tab. I read things online, watch YouTube, check out discord, get a snack, go to the bathroom, get dressed, clean my desk, read a book, etc., lol. Eh, sometimes, I'll even leave a puzzle/card/board-style game (chess, free cell, etc.) open underneath the game I'm actually playing so I can alt tab to it while I'm in the mp cue. Needless to say one has to be careful when playing GAs and sometimes other planes too, because you'll fly into the side of a mountain before you get back to the game.

It'd be better if they didn't mute the line telling you the game started when the window isn't focused. CSGO does that when it finds a match and needs you to press ready but not when a round starts :facepalm:

Check the discord chat; stretch, maybe do a random chinup or something. Noodle on a nearby bass for a few seconds. I played a loooot of games over the weekend (damn you, Ace medal - I’ll get you yet) - and random bits of movement went a long way towards keeping sanity intact & salt down.

Mostly, though - queue times were a reasonable average of a minute thirty (including load-in). Get up, do a thing, sit back down & GL, HF.

Fill my beer, empty the ashtray, fire a smoke, or bowl, scold the dog, let the dog in/out, change tunes or TV.....

 

Honestly the wait time in ques is nothing these days compared to what they have been once in the past, only problem is all bot game...hate that.
