Simple Ideas
No effort was made to improve the terrible multiplayer structure of this game. Very simple things could've been done to help this nearly non-playable MP. The most simple thing being to just add a player count beside the lobby name when searching for games. Something like 95% of game time is spent waiting in the lobby!
If we could search for 2HG games, view the list, and see Jhon's game (2/4), or Jhon's game (1/4), or Jhon's game (3/4); that would ensure people are staffing the fullest games quicker and increase actual play time. Thats why I bought the game; not to comiserate with people in the lobby about how little effort was made to improve this game over the last several years. ....a lesson learned and another game given up on, I suppose.

Choose quick match if you want to get in a game fast.

If the quickmatch would be working - only ever get timeouts that require a restart of the game. It IS a ♥♥♥♥ty multiplayer.

Go to Multiplayer, custom, and pick a game. Quickmatch works too. Sometimes I get timeouts or disconnects, but just keep trying, it only takes a few seconds to retry. :)

It takes a full minute to disconnect, and no further tries will ever yield results once I have a timeout. I've tried it quite a lot..

.. why am i posting this again.. won't change anything anyway..

yeah finding a game isn't hard. its the fact that everyone is bouncing from one lobby to the next trying to find one thats full. in the custom game lobby list, there needs to be a player count beside the lobby name like almost any other MP server list so people can fill games that are almost full and reduce the time people actually spend WAITING IN THE LOBBY. .....i typed this while....WAITING IN THE LOBBY. it's either simple ideas like that, or, they could just add a miniature game of Pong for people to play while WAITING IN THE LOBBY.....

+1 for numbers by the lobby names
