Rumbleverse is rolling out new server configurations to deal with long matchmaking queues


One of the few bad things Rumbleverse players have had to say about the game has to do with wait times, which Iron Galaxy is looking to address today.

One of the biggest stories in gaming this weekend was the launch of the new free-to-play battle royale Rumbleversus. Epic Games and Iron Galaxy were probably surprised by the game’s reception, seeing thousands of players logging in to give the game a chance on all of its platforms. However, this caused a few issues, namely long matchmaking queues. Iron Galaxy hopes that a new server configuration patch will resolve these issues.

The message came from Rumbleverse Twitter Account. New server configurations are applied as this story goes up. Maintenance is expected to be completed around 10:00 a.m. PT/1:00 p.m. ET.

Throughout the weekend, Rumbleverse players saw extremely long matchmaking times. Upon starting the game, some players would be placed in a queue that would contain hundreds of thousands of people. While players would move through the queue faster than a six-digit number would suggest, they would still wait between 5 and 15 minutes. Matchmaking times wouldn’t be any better, often leaving players waiting for over five minutes each time.

This turned out to be a problem for Iron Galaxy, but honestly, it’s not the worst problem for the team. This suggests that Rumbleverse has proven popular, at least in the first week since its official 1.0 launch. On top of that, long queues and matchmaking times were some of the few complaints about the game, with many posts on the game’s social media praising the battle royale’s unique premise and of his fun approach to what quickly became a tired genre.

Rumbleverse is available now on PC (via the Epic Games Store), PlayStation, and Xbox with cross-platform play available. We’re about to leave Grapital City briefly here at Shacknews to prepare for a full review, so stay tuned later today.

Because what are video games if you can’t enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
