...It's about the ratio of guardian to defiant players queueing.

If you have a current ratio of 5 guardian to 2 defiant players, then the guardians are going to have a wait list. If you add more shards with a similar imbalance, then you're not going to fix anything. (10 guardian to 4 defiant players.) Similarly, if across ALL shards there is an imbalance, of say 4 guardians to 3 defiants, then the guardians will still have a wait time.

Therefore:Do combine battlegroups for more variety, but keep at least 4 separate groups so that as imbalances arise, shards can be moved to compensate.The best solution is to strategically combine battlegroups so that the ratio of players queueing is nearly equal.
