This has been bothering me more and more lately. If you’re going to host a horde lobby, pay attention. I’ve been in innumerable lobbies that get 5 people, strong classes, ready to go, and the host just never starts the game. Eventually people get bored and quit and what could have been a fun game just dissolves into nothing.
If you don’t have the attention span to wait 2 minutes for players to join, then go play matchmaking.
Oh and check the taps. If you go and grab the fab, and drag it across the map without doing a tap check, and the taps wind up on the other side of the map, I will quit and take my party with me. Exceptions being maps that dragging the fab to a place biases the tap check, like clocktower.
Good indicator too, if the host isn’t the first person on the list.
Besides ghost lobbies, who thought it was a good idea to switch lobbies from Post-Match results to Pre-Match just because the host left…
game should have had ready indicators, as in if they moved their mouse/controller past 5 minutes, its green;. if not, its red.
one thing that will always annoy me is the last person joins, and you want to give them 10-20 seconds to switch classes and POTENTIALLY change cards (usually cards are the same so doesnt matter) but if you start then they complain. or if you take too long then people leave thinking ur afk lol
also gotta love those people who join lobbies and just instantly leave. and whats worse is when someone joins as they leave and it looks like an afk lobby, so the other guy leaves. lol.
On clocktower, I’ve noticed that if you do a tap check at the spawn, you get taps down on the ground most of the time, but if you drag it upstairs you get good taps up there a slight majority of the time, maybe 6 out of 10 games
Well they could always add another BIG reminder like they did with energy in horde where if you had too much the game will make it very clear that you do and put huge text on screen telling you about it (and let’s be real they added that because soo many people or newbies would often forget that they have a lot of energy even though some do purposely keep it to themselves)
