ok so it has been 7 years, maybe time to speak up?
i host a game on the blizzard sc2 arcade and i feel it is needlessly hard.
Simply put, i get removed over and over and over, if there are no players joining the lobby i have to remake over and over again.
What is hosting? You are there to make people play a game, understand how it works, what the fun is and if that fun can apply to each individual player that tries it out. Players come and try it, i do my best and fail 90% of the time minimum, all good.
What is hosting? Having a platform that makes a game available and presumably wanting as many people using this platform as possible. Wanting the platform to be working .. to be
Lobby blockers block lobbies? Implement an auto kick and an auto launch.. that make no sense and makes hosting impossible.
You host and the game ends, and you get the re join bug.
:fun fun fun:
Wrong. i was not inactive and this platform is compromised by its own developer.
