    I don't actually mind, what I get annoyed at are the people that are afk so the timer runs all the way down before re-entering the queue...

    a lot of people pvp while waiting for the queue, if they have the flag when the queue pops, they might cancel so they dont screw everything up for their team

    also, they may have forgotten they were in the queue and not wanted to go anymore

    or, they could realize, when it pops, that they dont have enough time, and dont want to have to force your group to look for another 20min in

    or, maybe they forgot they selected tank, and really dont want to tank today, so they cancel and requeue as just dps

    or, maybe they logged out at the same time it popped

    or, maybe theyre trolling

    theres a lot of different scenarios here, some im not even thinking of im sure, shouldnt be so quick to judge, imo

    some people accidentally click cancel when it pops up, because they were clicking that area of the screen when it popped up. such as when looting a mob.

    Lets Go Rift. Hope Archeage can do something next. Lets Save Rift

    Personally, I think it's just rogues queing as tanks who don't really tank but just do it to get in front of the DPS queue. The game randomly assigns roles from the available roles in the queue... so a rogue who is a DPSer but doesn't want to wait can queue as a tank... spam cancel until the game decides to give the tank to a cleric or a warrior instead.

    I've noticed this trend a while ago. When we would get 5-6 cancels in a 30 second period, the 5th slot is almost always a rogue in our 4-man guild groups.

    Indeed, the OP definitely is facing a First World Problem here. What's next? Will his laptop battery be running low, but his charger is upstairs?

    Rogues are the cause of all problems! It's TRUE! It's TRUE TRUE TRUE!


    And I'm not just saying that because I'm a squishy mage.


    I lie a lot.

    Pretty sure queuing as tank/healer jumps you to the front of the DPS/support line as well.

    Dear OP- queue with friends. If you don't have friends make some.

    The queue times for a random dungeon are insanely short unless you refuse to do anything but DPS. If you are refusing to queue as anything but DPS you deserve to wait.
    RNG is everything

    That's what I was thinking.

    I can't remember if that box also closes if you hit escape. I've accidentally cancelled out of pop-up boxes because they've showed up right as I was exiting my bank or the AH or things like that. D:

    I can't think of the number of times that I canceled raid ready checks because of using ESC to exit out my backpacks.
