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!
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.
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.

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.
