When i keep my home radius small and exclude Ireland it takes around 5 to 6 minute to get a match during the day haven't tried at night there's 8000 people playing ranked at the moment i'd guess mostly european because of time difference, it's not even trying to match me outside radius that often.
Thanks for providing those ID's, that's really useful for us until we manage to extensively test this game. It seems like UFC is similar to CoD in that it favours dedicated servers over P2P though features both. Unfortunately when the game is trying desperately to connect you to a dedicated server it can be hard to force a P2P connection, and you end up relying on the game developers improving their server infrastructure.
If you haven't checked it out already, I'd recommend keeping an eye on this site: http://downdetector.com/status/ea. UFC isn't listed on there though it'll definitely use the same servers - you can use that page to check if there are any ongoing problems.
I'd recommend trying the CoD Ultimate profile. Ignore the name - this profile could help you to connect to lower ping games since it relies solely on Ping Assist. Let me know if this helps
