While playing 4v4 TMM I noticed a probable patern that causes recurring matches that end on the "Setting up automatch..." window.
After noticing the patern I checked 3 times before creating this topic, all 3 times produced same results.
The developers should test this, because if this is the case, this cycle causes serious damage to the 4v4 queue.
Description of the patern as follows:
Supreme Commander launches.
I am stuck at the "Setting up automatch..." window, nothing happens, the match doesn't start, maybe someone has suffered an internet connection issue.
On the "Setting up automatch..." window I press "Cancel" button and instantly join the 4v4 queue again.
I get automatched and see "Match launching" written in green letters in the client, but the Supreme Commander doesn't launch.
Important: most likely at this point other players are stuck at the "Setting up automatch..." window, now (!), if some of them after waiting presses the "Cancel" button and joins the queue, he starts the cycle all over again.
After roughly 30 seconds the "Match launching" text disappear and nothing happens.
I try to join the 4v4 queue again and get this error message:
Message from server
Can't join a queue while in state JOINING
To fix this I need to close and start the FAF client again.
Also important to note that not pressing the "Cancel" button on the "Setting up automatch..." window but instead waiting for the client to close the window and notify that the automatch failed and joining the queue afterwards doesn't cause any problems.
I figure pressing the "Cancel" button on the "Setting up automatch..." window, joining the queue afterwards and getting automatched causes the issue.
Cycle is repeated if another player on the next automatch does the same actions, chances are that the cycle can be repeated a number of times in a row, resulting in consecutive failed automatches, rendering the 4v4 TMM queue inactive.
