General:

  • Private queues have been re-enabled.
  • Updated the level range of PvE private queue maps.
    • This affects only those PvE queue maps for which the level can be adjusted.
    • The level of a queue map must be within two of the queue's creator.
    • Players that are more than two levels above the map's level cannot join.
    • For example, if a level 10 player creates a private queue, he can set it to levels 8 through 12.
      • Players level 10 through 14 would be able to join this example queue map.

Known Issues:

  • Private Queues:
