Player came from?
So almost 3 hours ago, I started a match on advanced on No mercy with it set to friends only to join. So after about a minute or so into the game this player comes in and I know he/she was not on my friends/groups list. Has anybody else had a player come into a match that they did not recognize? I checked what the match was set to after we beat No mecy and it was set to friends only. I got to say who ever the person was, he/she was 1 heck of a player, since we man handled advanced mode like it was on easy. Heck, I even sent the person a friend request, but looks like he/she turned it down. Just though I would post this since it seemed weird after searching my groups and this player was nowhere to be found. This person's profile is set to private if that matters.

Friends of friends can join, I've ahd that happen. Server owners/admins can also join even if you've got it set to friends only. It was probably one of the two, I'm betting server admin.

even public people can just look at your profile and join your game without permission or anything because that happens to me and some of my friends when we play

Also depends on the server. Some servers ignore "friends only" and force public.

It was just a regular dedicated server.

I honestly forgot about the friends of friends joining my game.

I've been in a FO (friends only) game with a friend and we both have very limited friends, and several times now I've seen others join and we have no idea who they are, I assume they were the server admin or something as all of a sudden health packs started dropping like crazy and we got a system (server) message to type in a command to get the melee weapon of choice. They then proceded to run the exact path to the safe house.

I don't have a big problem with this, but I do have a problem. When I get on with a friend it's for a reason, especially if it's a new map, we like to explore, also, having every item by just a ( ! ) command kind of take away any challenge of the map.

I am wondering, when someone enters a game that is set to "Friends Only" do they know it? I'm ok with it sometimes but there are times when I prefer just myself and a few pals in a game.

(NOTE: I explained the meaning of FO so some would not confuse it with another less attractive phrase. )

If you're in a group with people they can join your game.

The could be also, since I am in a few groups.

I also think there are ways to bypass the friends only setting. It did not happen often. But I had to vote kick at least 2 people so far in 2013. They were clearly not friends of my friends. They must have bypassed it somehow. Oh & it was on official servers too.

Nope this been happening for a while just did a game earlier with Kage and someone join who wasn't in any of our groups or friend list we even check to see if they were a friend of friend. The dude came and cause all of us to ddos then left after he cause everyone in the game chaos and had us burn in the wake. Nobody wants to have to play on over 900 ping its like being high and loopy.

Well that sucks, but I got to say the guy who joined me out of nowhere was an ♥♥♥ kicker. I would play with him any day again and he would be a great addition to our group. We flew threw No mercy on adavanced in just about a half hour like it was set on freakin easy.
