Scheduled Changes to Ranked Queues in OCE

Hi Everyone, As we mentioned in our "[Preseason Ranked Queue Testing](http://boards.oce.leagueoflegends.com/en/c/announcements/aAfOmVeI-oce-preseason-ranked-queue-testing-updated-nov-18th)" announcement, the enable times of Ranked Solo and Flex queues were subject to change once we understood how players would handle dual-wielding ranked modes. We've now had some time to analyse the performance of these queues around queue health (queue times and matchmaking quality). It's taken us a little longer than we'd have liked to adjust the queues—due to bugs occurring with Ranked Flex immediately after launch—but we've now gathered and analysed enough data on both queues' performance to decide on how best to proceed. For most of the day, both SR Ranked queues are healthy with fairly even sized player-bases. However, certain hours of the day have significantly fewer players online. During these times, both queues occasionally have issues maintaining high-quality matchmaking or queue times. Rather than disabling both queues during these hours, we're going to see how they perform when only one queue is available during this time of day. The following changes will be implemented early December 2nd: * SR Ranked Solo/Duo will be disabled daily during the hours of 04:00 AM to 07:00 AM AEDT (Disabled for 3 hours) * SR Ranked Flex will be disabled daily during the hours of 07:00 AM to 10:00 AM AEDT (Disabled for 3 hours) ---------------------- We've also been investigating the possibility of enabling Twisted Treeline Ranked Flex in Oceania. We're going to trial running a single day each week to gauge interest in Ranked TT. This will tell us if it can sustain high-quality matchmaking and reasonable queue times. To do this, we're going to replace one day of TT Blind Pick with TT Ranked Flex. We're doing this to understand how we can maximise the availability of the two queues without impacting the quality of the matchmaking or queue times for either. After a some time we'll decide if we can continue running TT Ranked Flex or not. Changes being implemented from December 1st: * TT Ranked Flex will be enabled on Thursday during the hours of 03:00 PM to 01:00 AM AEDT the next day * TT Normal Blind will no longer be enabled on Thursdays ------------------------- **TL;DR** We're changing the following queues from December 1st: * TT Ranked Flex will be enabled on Thursday during the hours of 03:00 PM to 01:00 AM AEDT the next day * TT Normal Blind will no longer be enabled on Thursdays We're changing the following queues from December 2nd: * SR Ranked Solo/Duo will be disabled daily during the hours of 04:00 AM to 07:00 AM AEDT (Disabled for 3 hours) * SR Ranked Flex will be disabled daily during the hours of 07:00 AM to 10:00 AM AEDT (Disabled for 3 hours)
