@ riot dominion queue time feedback
So after playing dominion a bunch recently i was wondering if something could be done to queue times in order to pair higher - lower elo discrepancies faster. A little while ago (2-3 months) my fiance and i made new accounts to play some dominion on, we are by no means dominion experts, we dont follow the meta, however she prefers the dominion gameplay to SR because of the current meta.
However now that we have some levels and some games behind us our queue times are long. I mean very long. Short queue times for us take ~12-15 minutes. our current queue (im in loading screen now) was 32 minutes. i started screencapping once a minute from the 23 minute mark.
Im not saying that the algorithm needs a huge change, but perhaps something like the variance testing speed is increased so that opponents of a higher ranking get matched with those of a lower after a shorter period of time. Dominion is fun, but part of the reason i think people dont play it AS MUCH is the astronomical queue times. Something like an infinite loop, less people play -> longer queue times -> makes others less inclined to play again.
If that is not feasible, could myself and my fiance's acount have a manual elo increase OR decrease to put us a lot more on par with other players
