They are patching the versions this weekend, will be great to be able to get into some matches, here is their official announcement: https://www.guardiansofmiddleearth.com/forums/showthread.php/730-Matchmaking-updates!?p=7015

Hooray! This is good news. I really love the game, but sometimes it takes so long to get into a match (even with restarting, re-queuing, etc.) that I just go do something else instead.

I'm intrigued by the Shire map skin as well. Should be cool.

@sirdesmond I agree. I really want to play this game but the matchmaking really kills it every time I boot it up.

Yeah I love the game, but holy shit it can take more then 20 mins to find a game sometimes and it really just makes me not want to play it.

PS3 has had the patch and map for a few days, didn't make much of a difference. The Shire skin is pretty cool. Its funny how just changing the map template makes it feel different.

I just logged on tonight & see that there is a second patch for PS3, hopefully this one fixes the matchmaking.

Patch seems to have made the matchmaking a bit better, still not perfect though.

: I agree, nice with the Shire skin, I hope they make some more.

Haven't noticed that much of a difference so far.

I still see disconnections every game and still need at least 10 minutes to get in a match

@Fearbeard: Exact same experience. I think I might never boot this up again.
