Seriously, I'm about ready to throw this game out the window if it doesn't get fixed SOON. I'm not an angry person but it's really working my last nerve. It's ridiculous that this many bugs appeared in <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">just the lobby</span> of the final version.

1) Host has no control over who is on what team. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif
2) Teams randomize every time map/game is changed.
3) Can't go on observe for a game.
4) Can't hear half the room at any given time, including people on your own team. When map/game is changed then you can all of a sudden hear them but now can't hear other people you just heard. This will be especially fun in clan matches.
5) No way to alternate spawns to play each side of each map without having everyone switch teams manually. That's a big pain in the ***, especially when half the room can't hear you.
6) The host doesn't have the ability to abort the game without closing down the whole room.
7) There's no way to completely randomize teams without changing the game/map.

Come on, it's time to fix this. It never should have made it this far. These are GLARING errors, and really tarnish the multiplayer experience.

I'm in a clan match now and let me tell you. Number 4 has been "fun" for the whole match.

To be fair to the developers, your list of glaring errors/bugs only includes one item that could reasonably be labeled a bug (#4).

I hope #4 does get fixed though, that problem is irritating and present in a number of Live games.

To be fair, this is the "next generation" of gaming. This system has been out over a year. There's no excuse for ANY of these listed, "bug" or not.

It needs to be patched. Not even up for debate.

Good point. Ubisoft especially talked about how customization was soooooo important for next-gen games... so where did all of my options go for Vegas??

yea..i really hate searching for a match and it says "in lobby" and the 5 seconds im getting in they start it (always) i think it should stop there starting if someone is currently joining and wait for them to get in<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I also didn't mention that the host doesn't have the ability to abort the game without closing down the whole room (WHAT?!), and there's also no way to completely randomize teams without changing the game/map.

Allow me to add those to the list.

Lets not forget the 14 player game where everyone is ready to play but the host left his X-Box on and went to let the dog out so all 14 people cannot play because of the host not readying up before they left

Well unfortunately there's nothing <b style="color:black;background-color:#a0ffff">Ubi[/b] can do about a host leaving his box unattended.

These are all neccessary. Clan matches are basically impossible without all of these

8) No way for anybody to switch teams when the room is full. So when you change maps you're stuck in the random teams unless somebody leaves.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

It definitely sucks when the whole room is having a blast playing together but the host has to leave and suddenly the room vanishes.

I think I was playing some ps2 game that had been out for over a year that had managed to simply swap hosts when that happens.... Whats up with this? I mean I love the game but yeah some of these things could really use some attention.

Oh yeah and it'd be really #$%#ing nice to see my damn rank up points so I'd know how really really far away I am from hitting elite.

It would seem that all but #4 were actual decisions made to not give the host too much control. Not that I agree: but I consider the amount of times I've seen a host create a strategic embalance by placing more talent on one team; also aborting the game when they themselves are loosing, get killed or when a friend enters the room. I would guess that if none of these "host abuse" elements happened on a regular basis in rooms, then they would have left it all in - which probably would have been nice.

So leave it that way for ranked rooms...There's no reason whatsoever to restrict the host when you're in a private match with a group of friends.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Exactly. There are MANY of us who don't play ranked matches and wouldn't care if ranked matches weren't even part of the game. We should be able to customize the game to suit the way we enjoy playing with friends.

Honestly, I wish ranked matches and leaderboards were never even implemented in these games. It seems like something is always being compromised to accomodate the minority of people who think that being #1 in a video game is even remotely important.

As it stands right now, clan matches are next to impossible to play properly. And if you want to get a referee in to observe the match, that's a big time LOL. He can't observe ****. So what you'll have to do then is bring in TWO refs, put one on each team, and then they'll have to teamkill them so that they can observe.

I was really looking forward to clan matches on this game, but haven't played any because of the things listed in this thread and in others. I was dumb enough to believe that there'd be "clan support" on the game, but there isn't even multiplayer support yet. Baby steps I guess...

Nicely put. I agree with this 100%. Unfortunately, from past experiences to current, it seems that a player's stats are the most vital thing in the world -thus ruining the experience for everyone.

In the days of RB6 3, I can remember some players hanging around a room til they got killed. As soon as they were killed they'd leave to either; re-join, or find another room to do the same thing in. I know it was their $50 but still, it was just ridiculous -almost as ridiculous as the infamous "Lean" -Im sure you vets remember that mess. Hah.

Again, nice post, Hammer.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
