Since the recent hotfix, some players have been experiencing an odd bug that would place them into a Conquest queue while queueing up for Warfronts. This bug has been tracked down by Trion, and the team found out that it happens due to internal changes that are being made to the Conquest queue. These changes should make it into the next hotfix. Pithos decided to share these changes with the community yesterday:

The Conquest queue bug some of you have experienced has been tracked down internally. As some of you may suspect, it’s due to some upcoming changes for the Conquest queue, currently planned for the next hotfix.
When joining conquest, you now will only be able to specify which team you prefer. If you don’t care, there’s a random button available to make the choice for you. If a team is full, the button for that team will say “Full” instead of “Join”. You can still attempt to join a “Full” team. After a few seconds, you’ll see the “Would you like to enter conquest?” prompt. If the team you were attempting to join is full at that time, you will be shifted onto another, non-full team. In this case, the prompt will contain additional text explaining that the team you requested was full, and notifying you as to what team you will be playing on.
We hope this change will make Conquest a better experience for everyone, and we’ll be watching to see how things change.
