  • Stop Instantly launching games when full.

    So many games of Epic Boss Fights on Impossible mode wasted because 3-4 people join never playing before then quit because they are dead the entire game. This would easily be fixable if we could just not launch the game instantly and see if there are any new players. It also becomes a problem in games that might require communication. I have had multiple games labled as "english only" only to have half the game be russian (on USEast server even).

    Auto launching makes custom games a mess. Please let us choose if we want to launch the game ourselves.

    I've been trying to play Epic Bosses on Impossible mode and this is generally how my games go.

    Host game, get 7 people, game instantly launches, find out 2-3 players have never played epic bosses before. They try it and they constantly die. Half an hour in were still on level 3 of 30, someone leaves, makes the game virtually impossible, remake.

    Host a game, get 7 people, game instantly launches, find out 2-3 players have never played epic bosses before. Know they are going to die, say GG Remake in chat, rehost the game.

    Just once I would like to actually get further than wave 5 on Impossible, but thanks to this auto launch I can never do that. I would gladly tell newer players to look for a normal or hard lobby before trying it on Impossible, but auto launch prevents me from doing that.

        This is all we need. An option to turn it off. The fact it even auto launches in password lobbies is even dumber.
