  • [IMPROVEMENT] Practice Games Lobby

    It would be nice to show a variety of games not just the top 5. Another addition to this is to show who the host is because a lot of people in practice games lobby have complained about who the host is and weather or not they are afk. Maybe show a symbol or something next to their name to identify them.

    Cheers

      Both of these. The practice games lobby NEEDS to ahve a paging system. if my friend hosts a game, its currently impossible to join it unless its private with a password or its on the top 3.

      Also, currently, it seems like if the hosts leaves, no new host is re-chosen. Therefore, the game just sits around in deadspace never starting (either that or someone else is the host and afk). that needs to change

      lastly, the ready button seems like it does nothing

        1. pages(or scroll bar)
        2. rechose host
        3. close afk-host games
        would be my sugg, as it is really annoying to find a practice game with joining the games and then saying "join password 123"
        it feels like... joinig chatroom "allstars" and announcing a gamename (good old times)

          Totally agree with your additional statements for the improvement in practice games lobby. Needs a big improvement.

            Displaying the current game settings, ie game mode and server, is needed as well. The practice games interface at the moment is horrible..

                  Agreed, this could be off putting for people who want to learn the game without risking the wrath of those within match making.

                    Practice game lobbies should also allow the creator to specify a name for that practice game:

                    IE: "noobs only"

                    This would make games easier to identify.

                    But yes, this plus paging would make the system a lot better. Right now I hardly even use practice games because the interface makes it so difficult to get going.

                          I posted pretty much the same thing at a different post.
                          totally agree...
                          waste of huge time in the lobby when there is no host..
                          AND you can only see some lobbies but not needed ones which have afk hosts.

                          NEEDS Quick solution
