On Wednesday, December 13, 2017, we will be running an experiment on the unranked queue. We’ll be severely reducing the range of skill ratings that can be in a match together. We expect this to have a big effect on the queue times, mostly at the high and low end of skill ratings.
We’ll turn this on Wednesday morning (Pacific Time) and turn it off on Thursday morning (Pacific Time).
We’ll be looking at data from this experiment with an eye to potential future changes. Please feel free to let us know your thoughts if you participate in PvP during the experiment period by posting in this thread.
