After reading Ratbat's description of what the new "Same Control Mode" switch does, I enabled it last night.  After that, I was experiencing inordinately long queue times.  Playing most Tier 6 and 7 (grinding SU-100, SP I C and LTTB), I was almost always sitting in the queue for at least 45 seconds, sometimes a minute or longer.

 

Anyone else seeing this?  I don't know if it's specifically related to the "Same Control Mode" switch or not, but figured I'd mention it.

 

I should also specify that I play on iOS, on an iPad Air 2.

It's because nobody cares if the queues are merged, 9"only a small group will play with just pc players or just mobile

Ironic in a way.

 

Sorry but that is exactly how the KBM guys felt when we couldn't play Tier 8 without wait 3-5 minutes and that was before supremacy filter.  Tier 9 and 10 was not even an option at times.

 

Good players are good players I don't think the controls matter much at all...Tactics win out

I wonder what will happen if more Touch players choose "Same Control Mode" to keep that side of things full? 

 

Turn Supremacy off, turn "other format" off, be in the best queue.

This was also happening to me. Same device also.

This will turn countdowns into near TRs if you have a bunch of people on the same control mode with supremacy off, you could get ~90% of your people in the same game every time.

Herodotus this is true lol. I played one game and it gave me a team of potatoes vs 4 borsigs. Lol. Ridiculous. I switched off thinking well, maybe we get the 4 borsigs straightaway. Didn't even care. First game back in 3.2. Checked to make sure settings didn't change and there it was. Flick. Hmmmmmm

Sounds like there are six queues ... 

 

Mixed queue + random

Mixed queue + encounter only

KBM queue + random

KBM queue + encounter only 

Touch queue + ramdom

Touch queue + encounter only
