    Once i was in the low priority queue, i cant find any game to play.
    It just keep searching and searching.
    It took about 10 mins and still cant find any game.

    I just wanna ask how does this system work?
    I mean, if there are only 9 low priority players in the world, the game will never start?

    yes, but there are a lot of people in low priority, so you don't have to worry. I usualy find a game in low prio after 6-7 mins of searching...

    I figured since there were thousands of you LP players it would be faster

    No, you go into the same pool, but if there's a game, non-low-priority players have priority so you find a game slower

    Many players have been reporting that LPQ has shorter waiting time than normal queue. Varies between continents I guess.

    although LPQ is a pretty good punishment.
    You're not allowed to play with the normal people, you have to play with all the other scum and leavers. You don't get any rating or items either.

    This is pretty accurate:
    -You're placed in queue with other people in low priority, so expect a lot of shitplayers, leavers and ragers
    -You're given low priority when it comes to assign you a server to play on
    -You don't get items or battle points
    -You're the all-singing all-dancing crap of the world

    I've never been placed on LP but some friends have and when i queue with them i just want to blow my brains out

    ^ this.

    I got LPQ once, because my internet cut out, I just quit playing until the LPQ timer was finished, you can't find good games.
