    I don't know. I queued ad 4man group and got match after 12min waiting, not hour like before update. Queued again and got match as fast again. And in both matches it was full teams 4-4-4.

    Everyone just doing pve grinding.

    Also to add: matches we had got Ready Check popup and port to bg few secs later, without this annoying "someone declined q, you placed...", and felt very fast.
    Will see how they will work tomorrow.

    IDK 12 minutes still isnt "resonable", when you are sitting longer in queue than you actually play then you know something is ***.

    I have about a 1 minute wait, which has been the case for ages - is it just cos I'm crap! What I do have to wait on, and have actually given up on, is normal dungeon pugs. This is why I have been doing BG's over the last few months, start queuing for normal pug and leave after a 1/2hr and go to BG's and pop straight away...

    BG queues still suck.

    First match of the day, when I first log in, pops up within a few minutes. After that, back to the 20-30 minute waiting game.

    now instead of waiting 20+ minutes for a BG SOLO, I only have to wait an average of 15 minutes SOLO. Thanks for the 5 minutes of my life back but the wait is still too long, especially when im queuing by myself 99% of the time.

    They need to fully separate group and solo queues, and just use MMR to distribute the teams for the solo queue.

    BG queue still is a bit long, but now i often seem to get matched with "less experienced" players, so it does seems they did soften the requirements a bit. Relaxing the matchmaking even more would risk increasing the frequency of "stomps".

    That's why ZOS should take my suggestion. MMR will be used to determine who goes on which team when solo queueing, and premades will only ever face other premades. The only possible sticking point that I see is what to do with duo/trio queue'd players. I'd personally say the trio should be considered a full premade, and either match up two duos together in the premade queue, or at least increase their MMR significantly in the solo queue, so that they're put with the lowest rated players.
