Upon game creation, you may notice you’re put into a queue in line of anywhere from 20-2000, and your position in line drops at random increments of anywhere from 10-30 at a time until your game finally creates. Regular queue working as intended.
At some point, you may notice once this queue reaches position 1, you’re bounced up to say 10,800 in line, and your position reduces at what appears to be 1 per second. The actual position displayed does not update every second, so your position drops anywhere from 1-3 positions at a time. In this alternate queue (which I affectionately refer to as the FUqueue or Flagged User queue), it equates to a 3 hour wait before your game creates. Once you’ve reached position 1 at the end of this queue, you’ll be bounced up in position of the regular queue which then behaves as described in the first paragraph of this post. During this entire time, you may notice others in your friend list apparently successfully creating/joining games which confirms this multiple queue implementation.
What should you do if you find yourself in the FUqueue (Flagged User queue)? Pull up a Squatty Potty, breathe deeply and relax yourself as completely as possible. It will pass. You’re welcome.
