Yeah no problem. Definitely a good workaround for something like this.
Okay good to know. This will save me a lot of time! I was concerned about being banned. Thanks!
Nope, I do it regularly for various reasons (eg., Prop Hunt or Skeeball in Action Sack, repeatedly getting the same map, or the incomplete lobby issue here) and it doesn’t count as a quit or anything bannable in the current system.
I often notice 7/8, 9/10, and 15/16. Annoying as hell since it takes so much time to sort itself out. It’s a known issue as Luke mentioned. The only way to avoid it is to wait it out and hope matchmaking gets that last player in. Alternatively, you can dashboard and restart matchmaking if you see it’s taking too long to find the last player.Do you know if this counts as a quit if you dashboard to back out before the game backs you out? I'm referring to when dashboarding is the only way to leave the lobby as the game won't let you leave.
Basically as long as you aren't already in
the match (i.e. the screen goes black as it loads you in after the countdown timer), you don't get penalized for quitting.
Also, since dashboarding is a hassle, I've found that you can just navigate to your in-game friends or company list and JiP off another person if you can't back out of your own match any other way. You should then be able to leave their lobby before actually loading into that one.
