To facilitate better matchmaking for the Whirlwind and Emberstorm Battlegroups, players on the following realms will now have a chance to be matched together when using the Dungeon Finder or the Random Battleground system.

    Whirlwind

    Anub'arak
    Blackwater Raiders
    Bladefist
    Cenarion Circle
    Cenarius
    Darrowmere
    Echo Isles
    Fenris
    Hyjal
    Korialstrasz
    Lightbringer
    Maiev
    Misha
    Ravenholdt
    Shu'halo
    Sisters of Elune
    The Forgotten Coast
    Uther
    Vashj
    Winterhoof


    Emberstorm

    Antonidas
    Borean Tundra
    Cairne
    Drak'Tharon
    Drenden
    Farstriders
    Garrosh
    Hydraxis
    Mok'Nathal
    Moon Guard
    Nazgrel
    Nesingwary
    Nordrassil
    Quel'dorei
    Rivendare
    Shandris
    Tortheldrin
    Wyrmrest Accord



We feel this change will reduce wait times and provide players on these realms with a more enjoyable dungeon and Battleground experience. While Whirlwind and Emberstorm are currently the only Battlegroups sharing a matchmaking pool, we expect to link all Battlegroups within a region once we've determined the effectiveness of this change within these first two Battlegroups.

Q u o t e:
So, is it every server in that list can now be matched together? Both battlegroups combined?


Correct. :)

Q u o t e:
Is this implemented as of now for Whirlwind and Emberstorm? Or will it be in a later patch?


As of earlier today, actually.

Q u o t e:
I thought all US battlegroups were going to be merged with Cataclysm? Is this still the plan?


Absolutely. We do indeed still wish to link all Battlegroups within a specific gameplay region. This is simply "step 1" of that endeavor. :)

Q u o t e:
That's great and all, but I can't enter bgs as of today. The queue interface thinks I'm in a group when I'm not, and when the queue pops I can't enter them. I've tried queuing for specific bgs, tried randoms. Same result, cannot enter. The queue just expires. I can't requeue for another bg because it flags me as still being in queue.

Fix or undo this crap, please.

Q u o t e:
This has destroyed the battlegroup.... Now " NO " " BG's " " ARE " Working "

' FIX THIS !!!"


If you're still experiencing the difficulties quoted above, can you provide us with a bit more information so that we can look into both of your reports further?

    Character name:
    Character realm (home realm):
    Approximate time (when it started occurring):


Thanks!

Q u o t e:
Lylirra, I can't seem to find Nesingwary on the list in the Emberstorm category. Is that just an oversight?


Indeed it is. I'll be disembarking the failboat shortly, I promise. :P

Q u o t e:
despite the BG Queue bugs going on, I must say Im excited about this merger going on. now if only we could have a strong alliance Battlegroup join up, give us a fighting chance......


How are the Battleground queues this morning? We applied a fix last evening that we believe resolved the issue, so if you're currently playing on Whirlwind or Emberstorm and are still getting "stuck" in a Battleground queue, let us know as soon as possible.
