The dev team seems to have finally fixed the queues. On the practice realm it has been less than a minute consistently, and last night on live the queues were around one minute. Sundays and Mondays seem to finally be playable again. I don't know if it was the code setting or something else, but whatever they did seemed to have helped.

UPDATE: Seems like only some BGs are experiencing fixed queues. Also, the code setting alone didn't seem to fix anything, it was 4-5 days later that queues finally started to feel normal. Enjoy if your BG is fixed. If your BG isn't fixed, hopefully they know what the problem is now. =/

It wasn't a hardware issue, just a setting in the code, which we found and fixed very early this morning. We'll monitor the queues throughout the day to see if we need to make further adjustments.

Because of the tournament issues early in the week, the practice for the first round has been extended an extra week. It now ends April 22 instead of April 15. The first round still ends on the same date, May 20. In addition, the blue gave a bit of clarification to things we probably already know, but here it is just in case you are curious.

Blizzard said:

The practice period will end on Tuesday, April 22, 2008 when the servers go down for maintenance and at this time, all teams will be reset to 1500 rating.

The 200 games must be played by the end of the first qualifier which is scheduled to conclude on Tuesday, May 20, 2008 when the servers go down for maintenance. Players will have 4 weeks to play the 200 games that count toward their final rating. Hi Trance. The same length of time will apply to the second qualification round though the dates for the second qualification will obviously be different.

Tuesday, May 20, 2008 is when the first round of qualification completes. You will have to re-register to continue to take part in the Tournament Realm past this date.

There is no numerical value we can attach to this question [Approximately what rating is needed to advance?] right now. It depends on how well players do and where they are at when the four week period finishes.

We have enabled the reputation system in an attempt to help make the best information as easily accessible as possible and weed out players who constantly give bad advice. Here is how it works.

Posted Image - This image should be in the upper right hand side of every post. When you click on it, it should pop open a menu allowing you to rate the post up or down and optionally leave a comment. We will keep an eye on posts that are rated down and users that have many negative posts. On the positive side, we will come up with something to show for users who are extremely helpful and knowledgeable.

We haven't decided yet how we want to display this information because we want to see how well it works first after a few days. If it seems to be helping, we will keep it enabled. Please do not attempt to abuse it, we will take action against anyone who is spam down rating people for no good reason.

Posted Image - This image should also be in the top right corner. By clicking this, it will allow you to report a post for sticky, or for deletion. Please use the report button to let us know if people are being unnecessarily hostile or trolling instead of replying to their baiting. Reported posts are handled very quickly with the appropriate actions taken against the user.

Thanks everyone for helping make the forums a great place. Hopefully utilizing these features will only make it better :) Back to Top

In the new Blizzard Tournament forums, a blue responded to the tournament queue issues we are all facing. Hopefully this includes not only the strange extended queue bugs, but also the fact that the queues are so long in the first place.

Official Blizzard Quote:

We are currently looking into the reason behind the long queue times, and will report back as soon as we get more information.
