*Routine server maintenance; no player-facing changes.
This coming Wednesday, June 14 , the platform team will be taking the multiplayer servers down for regular maintenance. Please note:
*Online matchmaking will be disabled exactly one hour before the maintenance window to prevent disruption to newly-formed matches.
*Any matches still in progress at the start of the maintenance window will be disrupted when the servers are taken offline.`
*DURING THE MAINTENANCE WINDOW, YOU WILL STILL BE ABLE TO LAUNCH THE GAME, BUT WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MATCHMAKE OR ACCESS ANY ONLINE FEATURES.
To prevent any interruptions, we recommend wrapping up any games at least 10 minutes before the maintenance window. The downtime is expected to last between 1 and 2 hours . You can watch this thread for any changes to the schedule as they arise, as well as the all-clear when the maintenance is complete.
Thank you for your patience!
A forewarning to everyone that the multiplayer services will be unavailable for around 1-2 hour starting in 1 hour (2pm PT/ 21:00 UTC) as they undergo routine maintenance. Please check the schedule above and plan ahead to prevent the down-time from disrupting your matches!
Server maintenance is kicking off now! Apologies for the disruption. Updates will be posted in the thread linked above.
Server maintenance is taking longer than expected. Apologies for the disruption and delay. Updates will be posted in the thread here.
We love this game plzzz faster
Update rank matchmaking lobbies, shit is horrible
Waiting … …cmon. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
wow 9 minutes to anarchy still holds true…
Pretty strange that a 2023 online game has down time though, that’s supposed to be a thing of the past long since forgotten hmm
Matchmaking is broken cuz everyone wants to end diamond or conq and dont want to risk it. So they play in gold or plat league on smurf accounts, so your truly not playing against your level.
hence they fixed that in the patch, copied starcraft 2 - you get whatever you had highest during the season…
2h wasted waiting in front of screen thx
100% agree! Loser Smurfs… I couldnt get past Plat this season because smurfs just smurfing in gold/plat
I read that they would try to work on that in season 5.
How long we have to wait for multiplayer match?
I was Diamond 2 at one point now im Gold 3. But I play with randoms too so it doesnt help
