Queue Update - 2017-10-15 (Ranked TT, Normal Draft)

~~~ #Normal Draft ~~~ **TL;DR:** After our [recent changes,](https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/announcements/glATfXAE-queue-changes-draft-update-ranked-change) we’ve found that Normal Draft is doing even better than we expected! We're going to extend the time the queue is available for the[ remainder of the test period.](https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/announcements/WEAy3U0l-normal-draft-test-coming-to-oceania) From today until 2017/10/19, the queue will run from 11am-3am AEDT. At that point, we will look at the data and make a decision around the ongoing time for the queue. ~~~ After our mos[t recent changes,](https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/announcements/glATfXAE-queue-changes-draft-update-ranked-change) we've been able to monitor the impact to the quality of the queue. * We’ve seen that the breakdown of games between blind and draft has remained pretty stable after the changes. (Around the 17% mentioned in the[ last update)](https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/announcements/glATfXAE-queue-changes-draft-update-ranked-change) * The quality of the matchmaking and queue times remained acceptable during the greatly extended time period the queue was available. Because of this, we’re planning on pushing the available time for the queue even further for the remainder of the time period. We're uncertain that the matchmaking quality and queue times will remain acceptable during this entire time period - but we want to push as hard as possible to have as many modes available for as long as possible. This will allow us to get data to make a final decision of where to end up at the end of the test period. # So from 2017/10/15 until 2017/10/18 Normal Draft will be on EVERYDAY from 11am to 3am AEDT. After 19/10/2017, we will assess how this change went and decide on the ongoing availability of the queue. # ~~~ #Twisted Treeline# ~~~ **TL;DR:** We're enabling Twisted Treeline on Saturday and Sunday for the remainder of the 2017 Season (until (2017/11/07). We want to have the mode open as much as possible to allow for everyone to obtain end of season rewards. Since rewards were announced, there has been an increased of players in Twisted Treeline, and we're confident the queue will be able to handle this increase until the end of the season. ~~~ After the announcement of [end of season rewards, ](http://oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/page/2017-ranked-season-ends-november-7)there has been renewed interest in Twisted Treeline Ranked Flex. We've seen a large increase in players taking part in the mode during the last week. We’re confident that this level of interest in the queue will allow us to temporarily extend the availability of the mode until the end of the season. without impacting matchmaking quality or queue times. ## So from 2017/10/15 until 2017/11/05 Twisted Treeline Flex Ranked will be now be on Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 5pm to Midnight AEDT. ## After 2017/11/05, we will analyse the impact of this change and make a decision around availability in preseason. Good luck with your final push up the ranks! ~~~ To get all the info about when which queues are on check out the [Queue Schedule post](https://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/announcements/wgM0WBsO-queue-schedule-updated-feb-8th).
