    Default Average queue time useless

    Tonight I spent 20 minutes in queue for Whitefall Steppes before finally quitting & going to bed (well, here to post first, then bed). The listed 'average wait' was 48 seconds.

    Exactly how useful is that number supposed to be to us when it varies THAT widely? Either give us something by which to judge the variation (48 second +/- somefreakinginsanetime) or just stop posting the annoyingly useless number at all. Ugh.

    (& srsly, how many people are getting in at 0 seconds to make that average out anyway - & how can I get in their battlegroups)

    Mine alone the path to take.

    Does it really irritate you that much if the avg. time is right or not? Don't look at it and then you wont be mislead. problem?

    To be honest, the que times always go up at realistic times for the average human. I mean yeah, sometimes the ques get really long during 2 - 6am. But I mean...10am - 10pm, after being on....must be 5 different pvp clusters now, always seem to be not too terrible. Of course every day is its own case, it's hard to totally blame trion for something nearly 100% reliant on a collaboration of people queing up.

    The estimated queue time is a lie anyways. It would say 5m and you wait over 45min.

    Maybe display a breakdown of the number of players in queue?

    Eg. If defiant displays:

    Guardian
    Warrior - 23
    Cleric - 50
    Rogue -100
    Mage - 10

    Group - 5

    lvl 40-50 is just a rush to 50, you'll be waiting a really long time.

    I find our is pretty accurate, I rarely have to wait for more then 1-2 mins for one of the 4 to pop. Sadly it is the Codex and Whitefall which pop the most, and those are getting old!
    Sorry, the worst Assassian ever to play any game anywhere.
