So... after a few days of frustration I was able to get ranked matches working.
I installed a dual-boot of XP and it works great. For some reason Vista wouldn't let me play ranked matches at all.
So, I've played a little bit and enjoyed, especially agent00kevin's maps and on capture the diamond.
So... a few questions:
1. Why does it take so long for everyone to click "ready" in the match lobby? There were several times today when both teams were full, but most of the players were just sitting there preventing the match from starting. If you don't want to play, leave the lobby and let someone else.
2. Why did I have the admin kick me for asking that question (politely) in the lobby? It said something like "admin decision" to kick me out right after I asked.
I wasn't being rude, I wasn't breaking any rules. Did I get kicked for being number 1 on my team in the last match? (even though I'm only on rank 3?)
After everything I went through to get the game to work, now encountering people like that in this community... It's frustrating.
Help me understand please. Thanks!
