Details[edit | edit source]

Used for retrieving the status of the battlefields that the player is queued or inside of. If the player is not queued for a battlefield you request it'll return a status of none, requesting an index above 3 will return nil, map name will either be the last battlefield this index was used for or nil you should always use status to verify if it's an an active queue/game.

As of Patch 2.4.0 map is displayed as "Eastern Kingdoms" during confirm status, and the real map is shown once it's changed to active. instanceID is now always 0 for arena matches as well.

Status[edit | edit source]

  • queued - Waiting for a battlefield to become ready, you're in the queue
  • confirm - Ready to join a battlefield
  • active - Inside an active battlefield
  • none - Not queued for anything in this index
  • error - This should never happen
