is this even normal? While steam 5upport won't give any explanation or help about this, IDK.

And first time knew.... that finding game timer stops at 99:00

Very impressive. But I didn't want to know this wondeful truth. 凸 you steam 5upport.

凸 your copy & paste answer and 凸 you for not giving single answer about

cause of issue / solution / alternate plan b.

No, it might work the other way around. It's not recommended. How about your internet speed? What regions?

its been like this for months. i used to get 2 mins search for the past few years, but nowadays i always get 10 minutes. i think this is one reason that reduced/ discouraged the amount of player base aside from the 6 month bans and smurf ranked removals

not to mention i only play turbo mode, which are like 20 minutes long. so the queue time is 1/2 of the match itself

As you can see from screenshot, there is no network issue. Region is Southeast Asia, but I guess region isn't a problem. Because since when this problem occur, I searched on India, Japan, Eu West, and Eu East to see whether I can search the game within 5~20 min or not, but the result was same. And if you see players' chat in channels, they don't have any issue like I have. Yesterday while I was spectating 4 games of IllidanSTR(Rank 1) continuously through dota 2 watch, I was searching for a match and failed to get a single match.

if you see the link above, I've been communicating with steam 5upport and issuing in dev dota 2 community, but I couldn't search any solution. steam 5upport would never give answer regarding cause of this issue, solution or alternate plan b.

that could be the possible cause. I thought maybe there is decreased in numer of players in ranked and so I can't search the game in an ordinary match time. But, there is one friend who are in a same rank and he can search the game within 5~10 min and yesterday I was spectating 4 games of rank 1 player's (IllidanSTR). He could search his game without any time delay like I have. This is madness

Time of day where you are when you queue, what day it is, work week, MMR bracket, and where you are Qing, and your preferred language

Leave queue and restart it.

Divine bracket (5k) / language preference English + Chinese / Southeast Asia.

I played this game since beta so I know this is wierd. This never happened to me untill 11th April.

That doesn't help me at all. This long queue occured since 11th April. Until then, I could manage to search all kind of the game within 10 min.

This long queue definitely isn't cause of setting in option. I could manage to queue without any problem until 11th April. And additionally, that has nothing to do with this ridiculously long queue..
