Since we've been reading (and receiving) quite a few requests asking for the removal of mirror matches in Quick Play, we are giving it a try.

Therefore, in 30 minutes from now (that is, 11:30 AM, Paris time), mirror matches will be deactivated in the Quick Play.

Great news!

It would be perfect if the players were allowed to select in the lobby if they want mirror matches or not. Thus, everyone would be happy.

I agree. The playerbase isn't nearly big enough to cherry pick opponents.

Are there plans to improve quickplay further?

Such as giving more options, searching for red/blue matches at the same time, with different decks each. Or searching for 1v1, 2v2, 3v3, 4v4 at the same time, whichever is availaible first. Or to be able to only search for certain maps.

After searching for 20+ min for a 1v1, switching axis/allies every couple min, with 700 players online, it is safe to say this is not working out too well.

Before I always found a 1v1 under 2 min, now I find nothing. Either it is a bug or people left because of long waittimes.

Edit: it is fine now again, waittimes are around 0-2 mina again, just unlucky before I suppose.
