Brief Summary of the discussion

Groups in Quick Play
- Max Group Restrictions settings are currently not applied to QP matchmaker -
- The Max Group restrictions stopped being enforced in the June 21st patch -
- The issue has been found and will be fixed July 19th patch -
- As of July 19th patch The Max Group Restrictions Variable will be exposed for future tuning -
- The default setting will be set back to Max 5 people in groups as of the July 19th patch -
Max Group Restrictions 5 means each team can have can have -

one 2-player and one 3-player group
two  2-player groups

Event Queue and Quick Play

- This means when we run Event Queue we will not have a negative effect on Quickplay Match Quality -

Improving Match Quality is a Q3 Goal

- Issues from Event Queue and Max Group Settings have helped Daeron and Matt get a better understanding of how MM is currently configured-
