Hey folks,

Please use this thread to post your feedback on the 5.9.2 Matchmaking Changes. A few reminders:
  • Our goals are to shorten the WZ and GSF queues while also ensuring matches are more fair in all modes.
  • Please try to reserve your feedback until after you have played the changes on PTS.
  • Make sure to include as many specifics as possible that are relevant to your feedback.
  • If your feedback is about a bug, please use the PTS bug report forum. This thread is aimed solely at feedback.
You can find a full list of the changes, here:

Not sure if this is just a thing on PTS or a bug that seriously needs to be addressed, but there was a matchmaking issue earlier in a solo ranked match. One team had a healer while the other team had a tank. Again, not sure if this is just something with how the PTS is set up to get as many pops as possible, but I definitely would not like to see this hitting live.

Want to reinforce what Pizza_boy said, having healers pop against tanks is not even remotely fair.

For regular warzones they said in the roadmap that each team will match tank againsthealer if counterparts are not found, so I guess that somehow extended to the ranked queues, but yes, this is unfair.

most likely the real issue is not enough people are anyways to form balanced teams.

Yeah, regs that's fine, certainly not optimal, but ok, what ever, gotta get that queue popping. But definitely not in yolos.

Even if not enough people for ranked its a serious issue. Sure we have skank tanks so its 4d vs 3d with a healer, but that is also not entirely fair, the tank would have be guard swapping like crazy to keep the people alive long enough to kill the healer or at least one dps.....

Even now, if you don't have a proper match you don't get solo ranked with 1h vs 1t, the que rather does not pop.

you wouldnt be seeing that problem if a majority of the people getting on the pts were queued because 90% of them only get on to test the Rishi deal under proper settings like a live server pool you would be getting proper matches but since the server likely is only seeing 8 people it just makes the match because it has no other choices.

Would you rather the tank + healer to be on the same team?
