90+ seconds for tier 9, 150+ for tier 10. Really makes popping those boosters great - spend 2 minutes waiting for a 5 minute “random” blowout, then spend another 2 minutes waiting for ANOTHER “random” 5 minutes blowout. 

 

Super cool.

Double check which server you're on, and maybe take off the tin foil.

I generally don't use my Boosters as is, but when I do, I use my Tier 8 Premiums.....        

 

Firstly, Tier 8 is No Waiting.....     Between MM going Above and Beyond to give Tier 8 the Shaft, the Qeue is so Fast, you don't have time to Realize what you just did before you're Gone.....        And Secondly is, if I'm going to get Shafted, I'm going to get at least SOMETHING out of the Deal.....

 

Overall I have seen the Longest Qeue Times at Low Tiers, typically below Tier 4, and at Tier 10....     Everything in the Middle seems to Move right Along at a reasonable Pace.....

I've not had this issue unless I was playing at really off times. 90 seconds is hardly a great deal of time, anyway.

Playing a few matches earlier, I noticed that the queue times were actually pretty fast at 9-10 for AM hours.... I don't think I waited more than 20 seconds in like 6-7 rounds.

You are out of your [edited]mind if you really think waiting 60-90 seconds isn’t a significant amount of time compared to the average 5 minute “random” curbstomping.

How out of my mind can I be not to notice 90 sec queue time or to stop playing when the game is no longer fun or, at least, fun-ish?

If you play on USE then that's been the norm for me as well, USC also has longer que times than normal but nowhere near that, not that I've seen anyways

Did you forget the 30 second countdown timer in your calculations?

 

With the extra 30 seconds added in, it would have a much more dramatic effect to your belly aching... :great:

They reopened US East for Halloween. It splits the userbase since there's not really more people playing, with about 30% of people being on East.

I'd say avoid US East unless you're having serious ping issues with Central.

After trying the east server, I am staying with the central server. Even though east is about 10ms better. 

 

The queue times were much higher on the east server.
