Battle.net queue
« on: August 26, 2014, 05:53:01 PM »
So, I'm trying to login and this is the first time I've ever gotten a popup box that says:

It's a busy day for Battle.net!
To help everyone log in, you've been placed in a queue (more explanatory text follows).

It started with a queue length of 2 mins, jumped to 8, clocked down to 5, and then suddenly let me in.  I am not terribly impressed...

This has usually only been happening during the DDoS attacks.

Yeah in case people aren't aware there have been a lot of ddos attacks hitting mmo servers in particular: Blizzard, NCSoft, LoL etc have all gotten slammed and had issues the past week or so. Maybe they're using the queue system as a way to keep the servers up and since it's not normal queue traffic it's screwing with the time estimates? (wild speculation!)
