Hotfix: Battleground Multi-Queuing

Battlegrounds and World PvP
Post Limit:
We recently implemented a hotfix that removes the ability for players to retain a second Battleground queue when one pops. Previously, players were able to queue for two Battlegrounds, have one queue pop and retain their second queue while they decided if they wanted to join the one that was ready. This is no longer the case. When a Battleground queue pops you will automatically be removed from the other active queue. To queue for a different Battleground it will be necessary to queue again.
Good good. Stops you going 7v10 so tis nice.

Does this affect the queue for tol barad?
How about fixing direct bg queue time instead?

Thats the Mainquestion. Is it still possible to join a BG while queued for TB and then switch to Tol Barad, if you got a call?

Besides this: Is there any reason, why you "hotfix" such a change into the game instead of putting it into 4.2.
Multiqueueing was ingame for a very long time and not everyone F5-ing the blue tracker all the time.

That's a good plan. Maybe Blizz could, when one side has enough players for a BG, just yank players randomly from the other faction from wherever they are into the BG, queued or not. That'd mean near instant queues for everybody. Heck, people could even enjoy the thrill and excitement of battlegrounds when they didn't even plan to enter.

No.
Could we get the simultaneous dungeon - BG queue back please?

btw - if anyone saw their response on removing this, i would really love to learn it - maybe I'm missing the logic behind it.
Can you please fix the BGs queues servers ?

At the moment , it's only the same battlegroup , instead of agaisnt all of the battlegroups , it's been some months already.

Yeah, how about if Blizz just adds/combines more of the BG groups together, or simply forget all the I-Level blabbering and get players into action, i keep it rather annoying for waiting 1hour for one single run... WIth so much hate and rude people in it, in most of the cases at least.
Why?!
Why not let people que up 10+ ppl in a raid? Dont give me any lies about ''well it takes the competition away and makes the other team get in a worse position, if you wanna play bg's with your guild go do rated bg thats what they are for (In a stupid voice) some of my best times in pvp has been with my guild in random bg's. And honestly why take that away?... I like to play with my guild in a stressfree enviroment and just have fun, talk about nothing important while having fun. But its not allowed cuz some ppl get mad? I want either a good explanation why we cant que up 10+ ppl for bg's or u make it so we can.

I lol'd :')
If you queue for Tol Barad and a random battleground then accepts to join Tol Barad in the middle of the battleground you WILL NOT get deserter debuff.

ok....10+ people in a random BG, isnt Random!!! Thats a premade team. So....as a premade team, you can only face other premade teams!! it really isnt rocket science.

Also, some of "best times", rolling randoms in a BG, probably amount to other peoples worst experiences of playing BGs. Why should any randomly thrown together side, face a team full of guild members, no doubt all of vent/skype or something, who actually have tactics and follow said instructions?!?!

Why not just go shoot fish in a barrel, that too is easy and fun!
