Do people sit in lobbies just waiting for people to join so they can boot them?

When it only takes a couple seconds to search and get connected to game lobby, and when you show up you already have two red Xs on you... Come on, they obviously have not had time to see your numbers or gamer card.

I normally just back out of the lobby and then submit a player review so have less of a chance of accidentally playing with jerks. It's a game. Geeze.

IIRC, you appear in a lobby a few moments before your game has actually loaded the lobby itself. So people DO have a chance to look at your setup before you see the lobby.

Then I guess I don't understand what the problem is, unless they think I'm going to play too aggressively.

Or it was because you have a perceived strange or unreliable build.

Or they forgot to make the lobby private and you took their friends spot. I've seen this happen quite a bit.

They can see my character build? Or do you mean weapon loadout and equipment? Either way it shouldn't matter as everything depends on the individual play style.

silver/gold lobby. trophy count i honestly don't know the number but I'm ranked something like 487 or 463 worldwide.

That's why I don't understand it.

I'm pretty sure he meant what specific class (i.e. Volus Engineer, or Turian Havoc Soldier). They can see that, what weapons you're using as well as the add-ons, and your equipment.

My guess would be they saw what you had but didn't think you would be good enough to compete, or you were too stacked for the difficulty you were playing

Weapon loadout/equipment in the game screen and character build (as well as consumable count and all unlocks) in the N7HQ

2nd point is debatable. N7 of 120 and some challenge points should get you into most games regardless of what you're playing. Like a level 3 Fury with a crusader and an incisor or something.

Where is this located? I've only ever seen weapons/attachments, and items equipped. Have not seen how they have character points spent on abilities or how many consumables they have available. Maybe it's there and I just never noticed. I don't know. lol
