Did the hotfix break Group Finder?

    @ZOS_Adrikoth @ZOS_GinaBruno making sure you at least get pinged about this... this really needs to be fixed before Undaunted event or that isn't going to go over well at all.

    iirc this is why they made event rewards drop from completing any dungeon, not just a random or one you got into through the group finder.

    That way they can claim with literal truth that the event itself does not require the group finder, even though in reality many people will be relying on it to get event rewards.

    That is probably what will end up happening, however I stand by what I said. Regardless of the event this needs to be taken care of and resolved as it is a major disruption of normal gameplay features. The event would just be an extra slap to anyone who regularly relies on the Dungeon Finder; Even in its pre hotfix many bugged state users could at least swap chars and queue as that one if they got hit with the vet bug - & would be able to get a group in a reasonable amount of time.

    if you don't find a group in 10 seconds as tank or heal, just leave the queue and rejoin it. How did you reach 10 minutes in queue? wasn't it obvious it has bugged?

    what is this forum and why i don't like it:
    - complainers that cry without reason and without solution
    - trolls that give cheap or useless answers
    - people giving advice with counters that are not viable
    - bloggers that talk about their day or what they use in game
    - roleplayers that talk about fashion
    - people with solutions or bug reports are ignored
    - people that write walls of text without reason

    Allowing the queue to roll in order to personally test the bug and add an additional report - you know, the type of testing someone in QA would do to confirm a bug ^_^

    In my case, my first couple of tries I queued and went to do writs and train horses. I only noticed that it didn't pop in the end, because I do the same with my DPSs and usually I have time with them to complete everything.

    After that I tried with a tank again. I did reque a few times, but still didn't get anything and just logged off.

    I'll try that today with my tanks.

    For DPS is tough, though. How much time to know if it is bugged? 20 min? 30 min? Not so easy to see if you are in the queue black hole.

    Hey all, if you are experiencing long or seemingly endless queue times can you let us know the platform, server, what role you were queuing for, and if you were in a group/solo? Also when you started experiencing the issue would be helpful.

    dont know if this has been reported but having sub50 in group where the group leader has vet/norm set on vet and do random normal, the sub50 cannot enter. if the vet/norm is on normal it works

    11/19 around 9pm

    I was queued for a dungeon, dungeon popped, someone didn't accept, it put me back into the queue and then I waited 40 minutes with no queue. Logged off for the night.

    Tried just now to get a queue, at 48 minutes right now.

    Multiple hours total in que yesterday without a single pop, waiting... Eventually I had some time to recruit, grouped with 4 guildies with me as crown, que'd, no pop for 5 mins. Passed lead and bingo we're in within 5 secs.

    One person had to go, so we que'd, no pops (was for DPS, should have been a lot of dps in que lol).

    At around 1am PST tried again with 3 in group looking for healer, and it actually worked. Don't know if that's a good sign or just sheer dum luk.

    I definitely noticed the bug where random normals had the vet symbol, and lowbies would be locked out even though technically they should be able to enter. Fix one thing, break 2 more, guess that's dev life.

    We had issues with 4 man grp trying to queue as well, had to port to a dungeon manually and then after that was finished we got the queue pop for the same dungeon.

    Has happened now and then, for the past few months at least. Still a bug, but not a new bug, and probably not related.

    All 3 did not pop, DPS I waited 30+ minutes before I gave up, the rest I gave only 5 minutes since support roles are supposed to be faster.

    The queue did pop when I formed a full group and we queued, unqueued, and re-queued. It doesn't fire the first time for some reason.
