Can't find game

Postby Jath on Thu Jul 08, 2010 4:05 pm

A few of my friends are trying to play, and even though there are slots available, either or of them cannot find the game in question. One can see it using Game Finder, the other can't. Or both can't. And we don't know why.

Thanks.

Is the player who can't see it a new recruit (has a question mark as his symbol)? New recruits can only play on a limited number of maps, and can only play standard game with a maximum of 5 players. Other games don't show up for them in the game finder.

A possible solution would be to let the new recruit start the game, and have the other player join. Doesn't work if both are new recruits, though.

Yeah. This is to prevent experienced players farming new recruits on complicated maps or settings

I'm running into this problem. I can see why they're doing it, but it's baffling if you don't know the reason. It should still list the game, but just give a message to the recruit that they can't join the game because <blah blah blah>, rather than not even list the game at all.

it could also be that one of them have been foed by a user in that game.

if you take premium, and you send the gamelink to them to join(via invites), they they can join the game regardless of their status.. dont abuse this
