Rank 1 killer queues

I can't play killer anymore. They're too long. I use to have instant because you had to be good at killer to rank up.

I'm not mad. The game needed some balance changes, but maybe adjust the point system for killers now to adjust for skill.

    i have no problems, as my lobbies usually fill up within 10 minutes.
    idk why so many ppl seem to have problems with their queue times, but it seems a little bugged if you ask me...

    Waiting 10 minutes for a 5 min genrush game, you see the problem?

    The only person that seems to have an issue with 5 min gen rushes now is you, or did you get tired of using the 3 minute not valid anymore excuse? If you can't get 2 kills within 5 minutes then you just need to get better.

    15+ minutes in EU for R1 Killer queues.

    It is too easy to rank up on either side.  The event this past month also boosted people to ranks they don’t belong.  The queues for red rank killer have been bad, for quite a while.

    Wait till rank reset.  You can for now queue instantly as Survivor, any rank.  Played 12 hours today and waited about 10 seconds to join each lobby.

    Well personally I have to wait up to I guess 5 or more minutes or sometimes less than 1 minute to find lobbies. It's not nearly as bad as it was during the event.
    However lobby times for killers have definitely increased and I hope the devs notice that that means they need to listen to survivor players as well. I think the most important change they could make now is finally nerf camping, which is by far the most frustrating thing for any survivor to deal with.

    2 to 3 minute R1 queues here.

    A lot of survivors derank now to avoid sweaty killers at rank 1. They saw their favourite idol streamers do that with sucess and without getting banned, so they do the same

    20+ min que times at rank 1 for me. I think it might be because they made it too easy to rank up as killer so the higher ranks are more swarmed with killers in que. You have to really try extremely hard to intentionally depip as killer right now. You can get dumpstered and still safety pip. Same can be said for survivor as well though and to a more extreme extent. I don't think we see the issue with their que's because they intentionally DC to depip and derank which keeps their numbers at high ranks lower unlike killers.

    Who the hell is complaining about a 5min que? No one

    Currently I'm at about a 5-7 minute wait time. It's tolerable. I just grab a beer or text some booty calls.

    Queue times suck. I've just switched over to survivor when I play now. Pretty much abandoned ship though. Waiting anything over 1 minute for a game like this is just too long. Hopefully they fix it one day. Until then I'd just move over to survivor. Instant queues and easier game play. Win-win.

    Tonight I waited 2 minutes tops per lobby. Played Killer a solid 3-3.5 hours with almost no wait time at all. R1 Germany. It was really nice, I am glad I was able to get off Survivor for an evening.

    I'm getting faster than normal queues, but I wonder if it got screwed up somehow because I'm getting crazy lag red ping survivors and a mix of low ranks in my rank 1 lobby. Just a few hours ago, I had a 8, 10, 6, 14. Please. I would understand if it pulled from a pool after having to wait 10 minutes, but that lobby popped up in under 2 minutes.

    Oof, 10?
    That'd be bad for my region.

    About two minute ques here in California. It seems to me that I keep running into similar survivors though, not saying they’re SWF as they are not together in the lobby. Are there any other survivors out there? Xbox One if it helps
