Accept the queue right before your stopwatch gets to 22 seconds, it'll let you stay like you got in despite not waiting in the queue
this takes a few tries maybe, only good if you actually can't get into ashran. i did it on my first try but then couldn't do it for 5 tries and then did it again.
Was partially fixed. This used to work everytime because the timer was a static number, now it's a variable; hence why the 1/6 tries worked for you.
Was fixed within a day after being made public. Unless anyone else here can confirm with proof, assume it's fixed.
