Qing /w frozen xp
Return to board index
I tried freezing xp recently and then Qing for a bg. I think I was at level 10. It seemed average wait and time in Q were no longer available and I'm just wondering why? Does freezing xp mean you have to wait longer in Qs for bgs or not?
Effectively, yes. Characters with frozen experience are placed in a separate queue that will match them only with players on frozen characters as well.
You can queue in the 20-24 battleground and the queue will pop in under 5 minutes with XP frozen.
Characters that are locked, will be only in a BG with locked characters...
I locked my level 19 when twinks were twinks and I had to work hard to get my gear. Now that BOA's are around I never had the chance to get the gear on my level 19. Last time I checked, a BOA twink will kill an OG twink in a heartbeat.
I don't even try to do battlegrounds on that character because I can be in queue for hours w/o even getting into one.
OLD post, information is outdated and no longer vaild as of patch 6.0+
alot of misinformation on what happens when you turn off XP and que for BGs
1st - not all BG brackets are active with XP off and have twinks in them to get games to pop.
alot of players have fully enchanted BOAs and love how they are rick-rolling new account players and decide to turn off XP at various levels to cap out honor and enjoy the imbalances in low level-PVP due alot to BOAs. i have seen players at 13, 37, 44, 59, 61, etc turn off XP and ask in trade chat in BGs are bugged after they notice no average BG times and after a excessive long period in que begin to wonder.
2nd - know what brackets actually get BG pops and when
15-19's supposedly start queing at nights 6pm EST, games may not pop due to 35-39 nights played
20-24's is the most active twink bracket with BG pops 24/7 due to trial accounts
35-39's play on M, W, F starting around 6-m est
70-74's has alot of active players, random BGs can pop though in 13-45+ minutes, 12pm-8pm avg
85-89's is the second most active bracket due to many players being CATA capped
3rd - once you turn off your XP, your BOAs alone will not carry you in some brackets they are no good, you will also have to farm BIS gear for other slots and be fully enchanted. if not you will be rick-rolled just like the new ill-geared account players you once owned, even worse
XP off twinks in warcraft has drasticly changed in the last 4 months even prior to the WOD prepatch 6.0 and with WOD now being live.
BG brackets are now back to x0-x9 levels with a exception at 90, and 91-99. when it comes to XP-off battlegrounds. these are currently the only active brackets
20-29's still most active twink bracket with BG pops 24/7 due to trial accounts
90's are in their own bracket they do not play vs 91-99's, mostly players MOP capped.
non-rated arena was brought back for all players level 15+, many twinks at various levels are doing these
