Blue's response to queue times

General Discussion

It's common for players to rush to test content at the start of a new PTR, resulting in queuing, which should diminish as the PTR progresses. In the meantime, we're absolutely passing your comments on to the development team.

As others have pointed out, it's likely that the buff to the Legendary drop rate is also affecting queue times. While we're maintaining it right now so that we can quickly identify issues players find between Legendary items and Kanai's Cube, we'll be deactivating it again later, which should further help alleviate queue times.

More effective this way :)
ya i just got it lol, thx though
It always happens in every PTR with major improvements like this one, wannabes and curious people get bored eventualy because the high drop rate and bugs so more real testers can enter the server.

I'm excited about trying it myself. I'm going to give seasons a serious go for the first time, and I'd like to be prepared by knowing whats what, and ofc help out with any suggestions/feedback. But I'm just gonna wait a week or so.

Meanwhile, I'll spend my Diablo time trying to suicide my HC Monk. He won't be needed when this patch goes live.
It's funny, they say they're keeping the buff to test Kanai's cube but nobody can create new games to do bounties for the materials needed because of the queue.
either u get queue or everyone gets massive lag and nothing gets tested.

That's what I was about to say. The only people testing anything are the 20 or so streamers who have hundreds of dedicated fans holding games open for them, so they can skip the queues and jump game to game.

The rest of us are literally just turds in the punch bowl.
