Probably a bug. Long ques do happen in only the most extreme of elos. ~2300 and ~300 elo.

I will cast out demons from this place while I wait...

I am in Bronze and the queue times are 10-20 minutes every ranked game. Maybe sometimes I get a fast one...

Based on how many more losses you have than wins, your Elo is probably very low, which is how you're having the crazy queue times. It should probably fix itself pretty rapidly as you win games, though.

Awesome!! I am hovering around 24ish in the Bronze league I am in..

Does the ELO not reset with seasons (3)??

I am new so I don't know.. but yeah if my ELO stays with me for all time then that would be the reason.

There was a 'soft' reset that moved people significantly closer back to the starting point - say someone was 300, they'd probably be moved to around 900 or something. Since placement matches also reset though, going on a losing streak when you first started the season would quickly get you close to back where you were, unfortunately. But as long as you keep improving as a player, your queue times should keep getting better.

You might be one of the rare cases where you could have lower queue times by duo queuing, since the average Elo between you and someone higher would probably be a lot closer to the median.

Are you playing solo?

Keep in mind the matchmaking can take too long if you queue with someone whose match making rating is too different from yours.
