Before hand it use to take less then 10 seconds, now it takes 5mins? (Both for me on ps4 and pc)
Sounds about right. Those that got fast lobbies get punished for those who are in other countries where they don't have allot of people playing.
In the efforts to remove "edge" cases where they could spend a long time getting a lobby they spread out the effect over everyone.
Once dedicated servers come in, at least those cloud systems will do part of the filtering on region, which could help in lowering the times. However right now, I believe everyone is piled into the same system when match making is done.
Yep it’s idk why I’ll be waiting long enough to go make a snack and I’ll still be waiting for it to make a lobby.
There was a change recently that changed the way that works. Before it would make a lobby right away, then you'd wait for survivors to fill it. Now, it'll look for survivors to fill it and then make the lobby once it's found a match. The overall queue time should not have changed. If you are getting a significantly longer queue time, please let me know and I'll have the team look into it.
That's not quite the case. It wasn't based purely on the population in different regions, it was fairly random and could happen to anyone. I would previously get instant queues while people who lived a couple blocks away would end up waiting for half an hour. We wouldn't be able to fix long queue times in low population regions with a new matchmaking system. Both systems would gradually expand their filters and accept people from further away if it could not find a lobby.
it's like the algorithm you were using for dedicated servers except you find a lobby. you are the host and the lobby is empty when joining.
My video on the other post on this shows otherwise. Sorry the queues are a lot longer.
@Peanits what system do you play dbd on? If it's steam, would you like to add me?
Noticed this too on ps4. Played a couple games earlier n it too a 2-4 mins just to make a lobby. I was getting games way faster before this change.
Personally I can't play killer because it takes forever to find a lobby and then it's made of 1-2 survivors and I have to wait even more that the lobby gets filled (which often doesn't).
@Peanits It does seem much longer to find a game when hosting as a killer now. I play on PS4 and it used to take less than a minute. Now it takes anywhere for 3 - 5. I noticed it maybe 5 days ago?
I'm now waiting for half n hour and my lobby still isn't filled. Considering that the game will only last 10-15 minutes if i am lucky it's a total waste of time. Not happy with the change at ALL.
Edit: my lobby has now been closed due to an unknown error. Nah. Guess i'll wait for my friends to swf =_= waisted near an hour of my life to play a game.
The game is almost unplayable for me now it takes so long. I used to create a lobby almost instantly and usually have it full within a minute or two. Now it takes upwards of 8 minutes just to create the lobby and it's a crapshoot how long it will take to fill the lobby. But I'm not going to play a game that takes 15 god damn minutes just to get into a match! It seems like every time they try to "fix" something in this game, they make it twice as bad.
Since I don't see any mention of this within any other reply... The fact that Bloodhunt is happening + killers get more BPs = more killers, which will lead to longer queues.
Idk the cause, but it's taking way longer for me to go from "Start Lobby" to "5 seconds left".
i wait like 10 min for Lobby and after that 1 hour to fill the last survivor!?
I am getting significantly longer queue times. I'd be waiting for minutes as a Killer, only to be thrown into either an an empty lobby or a not fully filled lobby anyways, which makes me wait longer. On Friday, I ended up waiting half an hour without getting a game started at one point.
Though the intention is for it to wait till a group is found before making a lobby, it doesn't do that at the current point. It makes you wait minutes for a lobby. And then when it finally makes one, there's usually only one person in it and it makes you wait even more minutes for the lobby to fill. There's been a number of posts about this already.
I can confirm this. The new system sucks and wastes a ton of time. I know the devs want to make things smoother, but this isn't working. evert it back to the old system. It's very annoying currently to sit and wait, while a BP event is active. Okay it will be annoying after the BP too ;)
Surprise, implementation three or four of this doodoo matchmaking sucks, just like the previous times it was thrown out
Queues are definately longer. Before it'd take like 3 mins from pressing look for game, now it can tak up to 5 minutes, and in the off case I can never find a 4th survivor, ending up with a bugged lobby.
"The overall queue time should not have changed"
Nice one. It is not the same.
Before when i was playing in low online hours it would take MAX. 10 min. Now it takes at least 20 min.
Queue times as a killer used to be just fine. Now they make the game unplayable. Literally unplayable. I can play other games. I enjoy DBD a lot but I won't sit in 10-15 minute queues to wait on a game. The "reasons" are garbage. Customers don't give a crap what your "reasons" are. What we know is that we used to not wait and now we do. Fix it or lose players. I won't sit around like some tool in a line at Disney Land for an hour waiting for a 5 minute ride.
How come the lobby times constantly fluctuate with every update? it goes from 30 seconds too 30 minutes with every "fix" never working in the end. When are we going too get consistency that is beyond the dedicated servers, since the last time dedicated servers were tested que times were still long, and then you would get lag smacked across pallets and vaults even worse then it was before the hitbox update in 3.0.0
Just here to let you know that your current matchmaking significantly increases lobby times.
More like 25minutes for me, ive been sitting on 3 survivors and i only get a new survivor when 1 leaves the lobby. Like ######### this is bullshit. It should not take 25minutes for a lobby, as well only getting a new survivor when 1 of mine leave :( very frustrating
@Peanits let me inform you and the team that it doesn't work. Once the lobby opens, it happens often that only 1-2 survivors join and I have to wait very long till other joins. In the meantime it happens often that those 2 first joined leave, cuz well it takes to long.
I'm living in EU tho, should be enough players.
Any time tested btw, morning time, midday time, evening time and night time. All same results, 10+ minutes lobby Qs. Not really fun to wait longer than actually playing.
@Peanits ever since ghost face came out, i have to wait longest 10-15 minutes for a killer lobby. Now i'd say yes it's about 5 minutes or more each time
But why is this happening though when I first played this game years ago everything was so much faster. What did they change that makes it to where your waiting 5 to 10 to 30 ? Or is it because the game is peer to peer and not dedicated servers ?
5 mins? LOL you are lucky . It takes 15 minutes for me to find a lobby. And I'm from EUW.
Your situations sounds exactly like mine.
