    I would guess it would have to be the average wait time of how long it took it the LAST time to pop. There is no way a computer can be psychic and tell you how long it will take the next one to pop.

    Its an average, my guess would be it calculates a time based on the previous X number of players wait time for that warfront. Probably something like 50 players so it will be skewed, particularly at quiet times.

    If its not the daily Scion takes a long time anyway because it tends to need more people to trigger it.

    A grand example of how using raw numbers and statistics can manipulate people to believe things.

    It sure can keep updating the time by including with the current queue time.

    Even better, it could show exactly how many people are currently in a match and how many are in queue.
