Battlegrounds - Replacement issues

Let me just say that since the patch, BG's actually work well and very often finds replacements fairly quickly (I've been the replacement at times too). But it still has major flaws - I've had at least 30+ BG's in the past week alone where there was no replacement for 5-10 minutes until the end. Its not like it was the end of the game.. no, it was a 4 man group at the beginning, someone left straight away and it continued to be a 3 man group for the rest of the game. And that is peak hours!

Since the are no more info in PTS patch notes addressing the previous issue or any hints of 'work in progress' type of deal, was just wondering if anybody else still encounters that problem?

    Yup. For a while there were no replacements, they fixed it and you got replacements almost immediately for a while. Newest patch you get replacements but they take a while.
    Looking for any guildies I used to play with:
    Havoc Warhammer - Alair
    LoC EQ2 - Mayi and Iskiab
    Condemned and Tabula Rasa - Rift - Iskiab
    Or anyone else I used to play games with in guilds I’ve forgotten

    I suspect it might have something to do with how the MMR works. Like it's trying too hard to find a good MMR fit vs just filling the spot.

    If this is in fact the case, I think it should it should have a bit more flexibility when searching for a player to fill the gap. I believe most people would rather just have another teammate asap mid game than to be missing 1 or 2 people for 5-10+ mins. At that point, it's possible the game is already lost or at the very least a comeback would be quite difficult to pull off.

    This is specially so for land grab games, where missing even 1 person puts you at a tremendous disadvantage.
