Battleground Queue

I've been waiting around in Battleground queues for hours, over the last few days, at the level 70 and 80 brackets and have yet to get a match. Is something broken?

Could be your battlegroup? In the 80 bracket I have only had to wait maybe 1-2 min to get in.

It's hard to imagine that everyone in my Battlegroup just stopped playing Battlegrounds earlier this week. When I say I've been waiting around in the queues for hours, I mean it literally, and that they queue doesn't get filled. Yesterday I was in a queue for an hour and 30 odd minutes and I eventually just gave up. I've repeated this several times, on a few different characters, over the last few days. Something is wrong!

Okay I've narrowed it down to the Random Battleground queue. I'm able to get into specific Battlegrounds.

All I know is that last night I waited almost 40 minutes to get into IoC, but when I got into SotA the wait time was only 15-20. Does it queue you for a specific random then wait for it to fill? If that's the case I wish they'd add a way to blacklist the larger BGs so that my queue times would be shorter.

Usually it's around 12-15 minutes for a queue, but today it's been 90 minutes with nothing popping.

It must be a post patch bug for 70-79 and 80 brackets. Last week my druid was having no problem getting into 60-69 bracket randoms with a instant to maximum of 10 minute wait time.
Also, I noticed that the Average Wait Time was changing as time went on. This leads me to believe that perhaps some players were getting into new BGs and thus changing the Average Wait Time.
Something is broken with the random queues.

It's frustrating as random should be your quickest way in. My average is Random is 16mins or more.

before the merges my randoms were about 3-4minutes.

now there around 15-20minutes...

instead of getting 10-15 bg's in a night... barely getting 5 or 6.

Yeeeah I'm part of the merged battlegroups bunch and I have to say, I've seen average waits of 5-10 minutes and been sitting for fricken 30-45 minutes for a game and often it's a partially played game I DO get into and get a whole 5 minutes of pvp in before the game's over.

I'm really not liking this new merger at all. The wait times are absurd.

Also, this is for both Horde and Alliance, as I play both sides in pvp.

What is this "merged battlegroups" business all about?

I think players are doing fewer BGs because we're so close to Cataclysm now.
