This just sounds like random interns changing values with no idea how the system works or any implications that come as a result of changing them. Exactly what I'd expect out of Blizzard.
Well, even for us at FFS, the 30 seconds issue is often there is like that 3-5 seconds before starting to download then X secs slowed down download speed then about 2-3 secs to "post-complete" the download THEN another 2-5 secs to actually join the lobby.
With 2-3 minutes, it's likely we would do the above without an issue although with 30 seconds, the odds becomes much higher since if we cut the minor extra delays, it's like if we had 15-20 seconds instead of 135-140 seconds to download + join.
