Battlegrounds - seems broken right now?

I've been trying to get into random BG for a couple hours now...

Loads up right away, puts me in a random group (always Chaosball?) - Fire Drakes and Storm Lords people come and go, fill up to 4 no problem - Pit Daemons won't ever get more than 2 people - so eventually people get sick of waiting, and leave...

Which I learned the hard way about the 20 minute penalty for leaving a BG....

Just checked again - 4 waiting in Storm Lords, 4 in Fire Drakes - 1 in Pit Daemons...

Any suggestions? or is it just broken?

    was broken for me tonight. perpetually stuck on looking for players with 2-3 people in each team, people eventually leaving and no way to avoid deserter cooldown even though I literally sat IN a battleground waiting for it to fill for at least 10 minutes :/ with no progress in sight. fun times.
    dirty worthless casual.

    I'm on Xbox and it hasn't been working for over an hour.

    Yes this is happening to me too. It happened about two hours ago, I took a break and quit the game. About an hour and half passed, I entered the game and immediately queued for a battleground and was met with this problem - two teams half full and one team empty.

    This is annoying because I want to participate in the event but I'm not too fond of Cyrodiil, I just want to do battlegrounds. I think the event should be extended or something.

    There's been really bad lag on battlegrounds too even when it was working. It seems this event has overloaded ESO.

    This has been my experience in BGs

    1 clearly premade team
    1 team with a constantly rotating roster of players coming in, seeing the premade and getting the hell out of dodge
    My team of 2 players

    I waited there for 10 minutes before giving it up.

    My only conclusion is that there weren’t 12 single players in the queue during prime time EU during Midyear Mayhem

    Not a great look for PvP
