What's the current state of Matchmaking?

In the last month and a half, I have had a lot of trouble with the matchmaking, with upto average waiting time of 3-4 minutes every time I hit join lobby, with the extreme of 15 minutes, after which I quit.trying. This is happening mostly as a survivor in a solo queue. I just want to know what's happening with the matchmaking currently and the update on the new system that was being talked about.

    My lobbies fill quite literally immediately.

    Bad. As a solo survivor I can go from instant matchmaking to 30 minutes of waiting to finding a lobby to be ditched right after.

    As a Killer its fine, 30s max. As a survivor it takes a while though.

    Where are all the survivor mains that claimed that killers have long queues because survivors quit after all the nerfs?!

    Not a Riot. Just curious. Since they claimed so hard that the nerfs were to much.
    Don't you remember the threads?
    Maybe killers did the same...

    Survivor queue times are usually quite fast, that's why people is asking what's going on (including myself, i made a thread about it too).
    Also there's hasn't been any important change that nerfs survivors so...

    Solo? No problems on either side.

    If I get a friend to go SWF with comparable rank? Things get weird. Wait for ages to get in a lobby for a Killer that's in China, Australia or even in the US. (UK here)

    I would bet on some kind of matchmaking problem. Like killers had a month ago.
    Or all the kids went back to school...

    From my perspective rank 1 matchmaking felt like it used to be a few days ago. Survivor hat a little bit longer queue time, and killer lobbies were filling up. Now after rank reset (r10) it seems like my killer lobbies take a couple of minutes to fill. Just strange.

    Sometimes on ps4 as a survivor it's within seconds. Other times it takes a few minutes. It's very inconsistent. I usually exit and re enter the lobby because idk if it's glitched or what. Sometimes that does the trick.
  • brokedownpalacebrokedownpalace Member Posts: 3,581
    Lobbies that are stuck at 3 survivors are STILL a thing and it's extremely annoying.

    I was just thinking that myself. I'll never forget that special Radiant guy clustering the forums with nonesense.

    I love how after his 20th acc he finally tried not calling himself Radiant only to flag everyone who called him out (which did not take long lol).

    I'm not sure where he is today but if its not a mental asylum he's definitely at the wrong place.

    My lobbies are fine. On Killers, they fill up quite fast, unless someone quits. As Survivor, sometimes its instant, sometimes a few more seconds.

    The only problem with old matchmaking was that it prioritised newer lobbies over the older ones, which I always found stupid. So easy to end up in a lobby with 2 or 3 Survivors for eternity. Hopefully the new matchmaking will take care of this.

    Yeah that guy was really annoying.

    I play on PS4 and this has been happening since early December last year. It's very annoying to wait long and then get dodged only to find a newer lobby in solo queue. Still my question on the current status of the newly proposed matchmaking system hasn't been answered though.

    Hell yeah dude... I got to rank 8 after reset and hit a wall as survivor I couldn't get a lobby after a 25 min wait... so I ended up playing a bit of killer even though I didn't wanna touch killer this patch since  sounds are not fixed until the midchapter

    Recently I've been unable to find games fast.. whether it's swf or not. The other day we had 4 games in 2 hours, today 1 game found in 25 minutes. It's getting impossible to play.

    I actually did come to the forum to find some information if there currently is some "special" reason why match making seems longer than usual like during Halloween.

    Yesterday after rank reset on PS4 as solo survivor I observed 3-4 minute queues.

    As Killer the lobby filled with 4 survivors within mostly less than 30 seconds.

    Playing survivor again later in the night the waiting times improved but I started to observe some very weird parings.

    Examples:

    4 survivors level 11-13 and one killer at 18. (???)

    2 survivors at 17-18. 2 survivors at 11-13 and one killer at 17.

    1 survivor at 13. 3 survivors at 17-18 and one killer at 17.

    . . .

    @lindechene yes, it's been very weird on PS4 for me, too offlate.

    Rank reset might have to do something with it. Not everyone had the time to rank up to their normal rank. So queue times vary.

    Good thing is, if you play both sides, you won't have to wait long. Since you can just switch to the side with instant filled lobbies.

    Toxic. That's all the people I come across in, literally, EVERY game. I love this community. It's just like WoT.
