This is the first season that I’ve played where there are long lines to start games and experience highly erratic ping times. The worst case scenario that I’ve seen so far is a wait time as long as 5 minutes just to start a game. When the wait times are long, the ping time is often highly erratic, ranging anywhere from 30ms to over 300ms which of course makes the game unplayable. I’ve monitored my connection while this is going on, and everything is fine on my end.
The problem seems most common on weekends.
Can something be done about this? Thanks.
Edit: It’s also worth noting that when this is happening, it feels just like it did during this seasons reset “hiccup”.
Edit 2: The problem seems to have eased up a bit once players started reaching 99 on the ladder. This tells me that a combination of people and (mostly) bots have eased up on running the race. Come on Blizzard, do something about the bots!
