    Default Shard Merges are needed to fix 10min WF queues.

    Many shards are dying quickly, I think its time to merge a few of them to fix queue wait times.

    Shard merges won't fix warfront queue times. If you're seeing long queues, it's usually not because there aren't enough people queuing...it's more an indication that your faction has more people queuing than the other faction. It doesn't matter if you've got 100 Defiant/50 Guardians or 1000 Defiant/50 Guardians, Defiant will always have longer queue times.

    LMAO, just like cross-shard helped the DPS-only players for PvE, right OP? There will ALWAYS be queue times for the overpopulated side.

    Which is why what is really needed is faction transfers or a 3rd faction (make lanterns hook neutral area useful) which players can choose to join.

    The problem isn't a lack of people, it is a lack of people queuing.

    If balance improves, the queue times will reduce when people do not feel forced to play a warrior (or chlorolock) in PvP.

    lol no one is not queuing based on class balance nub

    if ya have long cooldown, its faction balance issue

    3 different war groups so far, all 3 i've had less then 2 min wait on my queue times, hell sometimes less then 1 minute or instant pop.

    but i'm guardian.. not defiant.

    Transfer to a shard that has better faction balance, your queues will become instant.

    It's still a terrible PvP spec compared to Marksman, though.
