View Full Version : Quick Question

07-04-2007, 08:38 PM
Ok, I don't know if this is just me but whenever I try to play a ranked game all it does is put me into somekind of lobby where I can't do anything. Is this some kind of bug or is there something I'm missing?

That is the system they use, it stops you joining games you actually want to play but keeps it random. Sometimes you will want to play War but end up playing a regular Deathmatch.

Don't worry about the lobby though, you don't get to control the settings of a ranked match which is normal (unless there has been an update).

What do you mean you can't do anything? Like you can't go ready?

And Zef, they have a custom match. You can pick what game mode you want.

Not for ranked matches though correct? I remember that you just searched for a game you wanted to play and it plonked you in the first match with defaulted settings.

It's for ranked. If you go to ranked match, it has either Quick Match (which gets you into the first availible game) or Custom Match (which gets you into the first match of the game mode you pick).

Ah, that kind of custom match. I was referring to the randomness it usually gives you when you want to play one game type and ended up in another. If you played during the first few weeks you would know unless you were lucky.

You still don't get any control over the match in the lobby.

Exactly what I said. A lobby like screen shows up and all I can do is back out to the main menu, nothing else

yeah and there's your name, a circle with a color, and a number next to your name right? you have to wait for others to show up and then you get ready by pressing a.

Yeah, just wait for a couple minutes. I thought this too when I went into a ranked match, but then I just waited until people showed up.

It happens to everyone.

I think they did the random lobby system to stop people playing with friends, boosting, etc. and I guess it's good but it really gets annoying because its difficult to match up with anybody more then once
