It's a rank thing, once you are around 1000. I have had to wait 25-30 minutes sometimes.

19:00 GMT if you want to get a game vs someone rated 800+.

I wonder what the peak hours are for the most 800+ ELO players online, I'm thinking maybe 18 GMT.

Judging by best EU times to play, for me I have always felt 18:00 - 20:00 GMT is the best time to get a rank with 800+ ELO.

When im searching for a ranked game, i usually wait about 2 minutes and then cancel it because if i let it more than 2 minutes, most times it brings me a player of 600 ELO the highest... its boring to play for 1 point and lost 24...

Seems to me permanent times should be established for the higher ranks to facilitate meeting up with other high ranks. Maybe pick 2-3 daily times where every platinum player knows every day the likelihood is better for a solid game from another platinum player.

Just a thought.
