Must say I'm a bit confused. Yesterday, Riot announced that Dominion would be up for a limited time, OFF PEAK testing of server load. However, yesterday, the test was (happily) extended from a 2 hour window to a 10ish hour one, leaving the testing open for "on-peak" time too.

So, now we've all seen that the servers won't explode from onpeak Dominion. What is left to beta test? I would have understood keeping it off for analysis if the test hadn't been extended so far, but a direct stress test has already been done, no?

So, in short, cough it up Riot! XD

There were 6-8 minute queues last night... the servers didn't explode, but imagine what would happen on a weekend... you're looking at 10-12 minute queues or worse. It's not fun to wait 10 minutes to play a 10 minute game. I think last night's test was more to get a lot of players to try it out so when they actually release it, there might be a lighter load and a shorter queue.

Weird.... I never once had a queue longer than 30 or 40 seconds. Usually less than 15. Was this affecting players of all summoner levels? We're not talking about login queue, right? We're talking about Finding a Match queue?

oh wow... yeah, when I stopped playing it was an 8 minute wait. Just makes my point stronger, though.

Waiting 10 minutes or even 3 hour to play a game is better than not playing the game at all

The insane queues only effected blind pick, probably because there were immensely more people trying to play rammus every game :P

Yes, the finding a match queue. I did not experience a log in queue last night. I'm also level 30 so the queues might be shorter for lower level players since there are significantly more level 30s than 20s.
