Hey folks,

Seems to be a little confusion over the queue info feature that was added last patch. I'd like to introduce Prof. Dakka to explain how it all works.

amount partially filled indicates elapsed time?

is there any way to know if the matches in session are attack/defend or counterattack/hold

And the non-hardcore (PUG) queue percentage info.. will someone be along to explain what that really means, in short order?

What about when one strike team has a larger arrow than the rest?...

And it may just be me...but the arrows face the wrong direction, imo...

I pretty much already figured all that out on my own.

There is one thing I don't understand yet, and it's not covered here. What do the 2 triangles made up of smaller triangles above the planet to the left and right mean?

Maybe text mouse overs on components at a later date? Or an information symbol you can click?

That was answered in the 12-player strike team slide. It is redundant info.

If you want some cuteness bonus for new players:

Introduce Prof. Dakka into the UI (seriously!) as an interactive assistant by click on an area that need explanation for the player.

It should be activated by a question mark button in an obvious, standardized position.

Having a relationship with Microsoft, I would hope PGI would understand the downsides of that type of "assistant"...

The left side/set is Attackers and the right side/set are Defenders.

It's not so obvious until you see one queue (of Defenders or Attackers) being greater than the other.

Instead of prof. Dakka, how about a hot babe with a huge clevage? :)

Also we need some of those advertisement banners, where you have a crosshair and enemy mechs on the background, with wordart font saying:"Destroy the enemy now! click here and play free!" That sort of thing...
