Technical issues with horde

I am having problems entering custom games in horde.
Takes me around 10 minutes just to enter a game even when there is only 1 person in the lobby.

After i find a game, i played wave 1-50 on advanced and kait only recieved 1 skill card. From
Lvl 1 to lvl 2. And my account from lvl 45 to 46…
I dont think this is normal…

Are more people experiencing the same problems?
