its something that, afaik began happening after the amazon servers went down. kitru’ s had it happan several times for him in multiple languages, as well as some other users.
support said its not a bug because its not repeatable.
it appears to be something serverside (when you select a queue your game gets the queues from the server, not from your hd).
it fixes itself after 5 minutes or so.
thats all i know.
past this point is mere speculation; and im very tired and not exactly knowledgable on the subject:
theres also been the issue of the servers becoming less reliable- lag spikes, packet loss, and servers dropping more frequently. recently, steam itself was kicking players off one by one, which probably stressed the servers more, for what our small pc population is worth, as we logged back in, created lobbies and rejoined matches furiously. (thankfully we were in private matches, so when we finally got the match to start and were immediately down 2 people, the opposing team messaged to let us know theyd wait till we got our guys back)
it could all be coincidence, but it feels like bb was affected by the server problem. were physical servers lost? did they have to push clients down to lower quality servers until the lost servers are fixed or replaced? if not, what could be now causing this language phenom? was a patch done to the bb servers thats causing this?
