This may sound dumb but I always want to remove players when I'm host that I don't want to play with. How do I do that function which says is available when I click that button in the lobby.

If you invite a player and they haven't accepted your invitation yet, click "Add or Remove Players" and then drag them to the right side.

If you're trying to control who joins an open seat you added, use your blacklist or open seat prerequisites.

When I do that, it says "blah blah blah" has accepted the game and cannot be moved or something like that. It then says move them back and I don't wanna move them bck!

If you invited them by accident, just delete the game, re-create it and don't invite them next time.

If they're joining an open seat, see my previous message. Being able to remove them from an open seat would be pointless since they could just join the open seat again. Use your blacklist instead.

it could be nice to be able to remove players on your blacklist that have joined your open seats..
since it would be difficult if you had a 24 ffa game with already 15 players joined, then someone joins and starts trolling hard, you blacklist him, then have to re-create the game and re-invite all these players.

**@Fizzer** - I have encountered problems when removing people in that if someone joins the game while I am dragging the person from right to left it won't let me submit the "removal" because that extra player has joined and isn't on the "revised players" (right side) if you get what i mean. So I have to keep undoing this and going into remove in the hope that no one leaves or joins during the remove - it is slightly easier now I have got rid of everyone on my invite list but a few people and turned off automatic adding to my invite list so that it loads 10 times quicker now. Thanks, wondering if anyone else has this problem?

Yeah, that's an understandable problem. I'll add it to my list and hopefully be able to address it at some point.

I dont think you're understanding me. Say I host a 3v3 and one person joins my team and they are really bad or something. so I wan to remove them from the game, right? the reason isn't the point. So i go to the move button and i click their name and move them into the invite thing. it then says i cannot do that. I think that is so so so annoying because i shouldnt be forced to have bad players in my game and the prequisite function shouldnt be my only solution. I should be able to rmove players at my will b/c its my game.

if by "Bad: you mean they're trolling or not playing at all then I see your point. If they're just not good at it, that's not a valid reason.

so if someone who has like 20/200 games won, I should be forced to have them in my game? I should be able to remove them and not have to do that prerequisite stuff

prerequisites serve the same purpose, but wont give *you* an unfair advantage over the other team. It's not very fair if you remove bad people from your team but not the other.

I understood you perfectly. You asked how to do it and I told you exactly how to do it. You just weren't happy with the answer.

If you want to talk about *why* it's designed that way, we can do so. But this isn't what you asked.

Imagine a world where game creators can remove players that joined an open seat at will. Imagine a player goes to the Open Games tab, sees a game they like, and joins it.

Then they get a message saying that they were removed. Okay, they go back to the Open Games tab, join another game, and again get a message saying they were removed. Say this happens many more times.

This is obviously a really bad experience for that player. They have no way of knowing which games they will be accepted in and which they won't. They just have to hunt and peck until it works, which would be a really frustrating experience.

Game creators could alleviate this somewhat by putting their requirements in the game title or description. Something like "Join only if ....". This would allow players to view the open games list, read through all of the options, and mentally filter out those that they won't be accepted in.

While it's better than hunt-and-peck, this adds a lot of work for game creators (and many game creators won't know to do it, so it creates more of a barrier to entry) and it also adds more work for game joiners. What if they don't qualify for 90% of the games? They'd have to hunt around for a long time and it would be really annoying.

A better solution is to build this system into the game ahead of time. So game creators specify exactly who can join and who can't, and then those games *don't even appear* to potential joiners. They won't even know they exist, and won't have to do any extra work.

This system already exists - it's called open seat prerequisites.

I create 1v1 games and i say 50%+ wins in the title but that never stops the people with 10% wins from joining -.-

And i can't use the open seat prerequisites because then i wouldn't be able to play on 15% luck :(
