(Reposted from a duplicate post I accidentally made in the PVP forum, because I didn't think to look here.)

Anyone else getting a lot of warzones starting with 5 people that don't shut down?

Because since the last maintenance I've gotten LOTS of warzones that start severely shorthanded, that don't shut down.

Just got out of a civil war where we only started with 4 people. It didn't fill up until the very end. It was a hell of a fight, and we got within 100 points of winning on starting with half a team (we got a 5th person fairly quickly, but took a very long time to get more), but damn we shouldn't be expected to start with that kind of a handicap. I really don't like the idea of matches getting decided by queue system bugs before they ever start.

And that was in the middle of the day. With lots of people on PVPing.

Lots of warzones last night started with 5 too. I've been seeing this a lot more since Tuesday, more than can be explained by "premade didn't take the queue." And after server transfers, I'm sure there aren't even a whole lot of Imperial premades left on my server anymore, just the solo queuers stayed.

Did biofail's latest bolster patch break the queue filling system or something?

Now to adapt this to dev requested format:

1. Warzone name: Civil war
2. Faction (Was the other Faction the same or opposite?): Imps (me) vs. Pubs
3. Approximately what time this occurred: 2:30 Pacific time 28 June
4. Any other relevant details (for example, the match ended early because of 6 scores in Huttball): Warzone shutdown aborted when we got a 5th person, but we only had 5 for several minutes and it took nearly the entire warzone to fill to 8.

My experience might shed more light on the cause of the problem; hopefully sharing it will bring about a faster resolution.

I was q'd with 2 other people. I was waiting around and about to complain about how long the pop was taking when I realized the other two members of my group were already in the wz. My wz icon was still blinking and saying I was q'd but I never got the pop with them. I whispered them and they told me my spot was never filled, they only had 7 on the team, and it continued that way til the end.

Got some screenshots for this issue. I saw we started with seven, so I took a ss, just incase we ended that way. Sure enough we did. The top picture is before the match started, and the bottom is when it ended.

I want to reiterate for everyone that when you're reporting issues, we really need you to please be detailed and provide more than just what happened, please. For anyone who has experienced a Warzone that begins with 7 players on a team, and then the spot is never backfilled (which is what I am taking this report to exclusively mean), please provide the following information:

1. Warzone name
2. Faction (Was the other Faction the same or opposite?)
3. Approximately what time this occurred
4. Any other relevant details (for example, the match ended early because of 6 scores in Huttball)

Thanks for your reports!
1) Warzone name: Huttball
2) Faction: Imp vs. Pubs (I was Empire)
3) Time: The match started roughly around 3:11 and ended at 3:15 (pm, PDT)
4) Other: The match ended early due to the enemy team scoring 6 times in Huttball

1. Warzone name: Voidstar, level 30-54 bracket

4. Any other relevant details: We played the whole match with six people vs. their eight. No one was ever backfilled for us. screenshot Sadface, because we actually did rather well considering, lol.

Another one, except this one actually ended prematurely like, I assume, it's supposed to?

1. Warzone name Huttball (10-29 bracket)
2. Faction: Imperial (vs. Imperial)
3. Approximately what time this occurred: Saturday afternoon, 1-3 p.m. EST
4. Any other relevant details: Match was 8 v 6, but it ended after only a few seconds, defaulting to the win for us (the side with 8). We pretty much only had time to reach the center, kill the other dude who grabbed it, and run the ball for maybe 10 seconds at most. screenie

A screeny.

7 vs 5, the super-hard-mode. I'm sure PvE issues of this magnitude would get serious attention.

1. Novare Coast
2. Republic vs Republic (we were yellow team)
3. 11:45pm Central
4. Jedi Covenant

Completed an entire match w/ 7 in the group. We had 1 person leave and we backfilled the 7th spot, but never the 8th.

Voidstar started with 6 imps 8 pubs through 1/2 of first round My side imp as defenders at 6:45 pm on 6/29/13 got 7th person when pubs capped the last door. stayed with 7 imps until the 1/2 way mark on timer of second round of attacker imp side. Happened the next 2 Wzs after that , Novar coast then Huttball. after that I had full 8 on 8 Wzs for about 3 hours. Harbinger server.
