Heroes of the Storm – MMR Mismatch Long Queue Times

Hey everyone, today I want to give some quick thoughts on MMR mismatching/balancing while we sit in a ~250s duo Quick Match queue. Generally speaking, I believe under certain conditions like small-party queuing where at least one person has high MMR or high win rate (or both), you’re likely to sit in queue for a while AND be paired up with newer, free-rotation players – all of which makes for a wacky game (and often resulting in a loss). This has been my experience more often than not. Enjoy and good luck on your queuing!

  1. Perhaps it wasn't the MMR that was causing this, but combination of the matchmaker trying to make somewhat balanced team and you playing on one of the free to play heroes (many people will be queueing with Raynor to either level him for the 500g or to try him out). Maybe most of the supports were queueing with friend that was already playing Raynor and the MM was waiting for a support that can be teamed up with your Raynor, for example.

    Well, that or it was indeed just what you said (not trying to discredit you, just something that did come up in my mind while watching this).

  2. “Bul-Kathos, I have never prayed to you before. I have no tongue for it. No one will remember why we fight, or why we die. All that matters is that five stood against five. I ask you, grant me one request. Improve my MMR! If you do not listen, then to hell with you!”  -Sonya
