this has got to be the most infuriating way to be able to just get into online gaming with a partner. instead of a page of games available to jump into, the server just goes through the motions of what games are there and puts you in. this is where the whole annoying part comes into play. if some brainlesss prat sets up a game then decides to stay in the lobby but goes of to lick a window or two then the server will always give you that choice first unless your lucky that someone else has joined so you can bypass it. this scenario is getting more popular now for some reason with more games setup and being left in the lobby. took me over half an hour to get into a game because i chose "any " as my option. why should i have to pick a particular mission/street etc just to play? this really needs to be addressed by monitoring, a time out for the game not being played or a patch maybe to rectify the situation that should not be there in the first place. i do like this game esp' the co-op campaign but if i keep having to put up with the now familiar names that stay in the lobby, yes, the same people day after day then its back to the old games that give ME the option of what match to join by way of showing me what is there to enter, simple really.
some name shaming might help to get rid of the spoilers known for this bad habit, i can tell you two already (you will also i guess) who keep ruining my game play.

ok. 12:15 am and ready for some action. multiplayer, any - server gives me campaign coop with mc_madd666, toggle ready and no response from player so it's back to square one again. more wasted time and i get meerkat1996 in overwatch who has selected being spotter, toggled ready and again no joy in getting the game started. 3rd attempt puts me in with the waster madd666 again. 20 mins later comes the best one yet. gets put into a kill tally game with ecsourdiesel13, ok. this player has never even played on any ps3 game and seems the account was made purely to create this ongoing farce with this, i must say, not well tested online trial/beta, if any was done that is.
to the developers: if i am getting weary of not getting to play online think about everybody else who must be getting fed up of trying!!!
p.s. success in getting a game after 44 mins
