Lobby Leader Transfer question
When someone is lobby leader and leaves, why does it sometimes skip to someone not next in line? Like instead of going to 2nd person in room it goes to the 5th person in the room?

Ya know? This is a life long dilemma for me I want satisfied.

When you join a game, people are not in the correct order for you as to when they joined the lobby, instead they are automatically assorted in Alphabetical format. The lobby gives Leader to the next person who has been in the lobby the longest after the current leader leaves.

For you, it might look like the 5th guy is the new lobby leader, but it just means that he was the person who's been in that lobby the longest.

So when I join a lobby and I am the fifth person in the room, and the leader leaves, i become leader... its because I was in the game longer than them?

Nope. <3 When you guys returned to lobby you were all there in that lobby for the exact same amount of time, so there is some random function that was implemented and you just so happened to be the one that was chosen as the new lobby leader.

Ok try this on for size.. I join a lobby... im third person... second guy is host... 2 people join... 2nd guy (host) leaves... the new guy becomes lobby leader... hows that work to your theory?

Is there a way to implement a lobby leader change? Like a kick vote? because too many times ive gone into a server, and the people have been there for 30 minutes, waiting because the lobby leader doesnt know how to change the server type, or is afk.

just vote to start

But if the server is set to official dedicated, and the leader does not own a server, the game WONT start, and its like these people dont know how to change it
