Hi, this is a message to the developers of the game. First off, I'd like to say, the updates lately are cool, but still there is an annoyance that one thing hasn't changed, and I think I speak for a lot of people when I say that it should be changed.

In the lobby while waiting for the game to start, the host has the option to remove players whom have been invited. However, you can't remove players whom have accepted and are in the game waiting for it to start. I, personally, believe that the host should have the power to remove any player from the game lobby, whether they accepted an invite or joined the game. Sadly, I tend to get a lot of players whom cuss their mouths off, and hurl insults at every player in the game. While I do ignore it (and usually laugh at the immature insults and the use of the F word every 2 seconds) its annoying and may be hurting players in the game, and while we're in the lobby, people tell such a player to leave, but they never do, and we can't remove him either.

Another such reason is during team games. I am by no means, racist, nor do I think they should all speak English, but when you get a non-English speaking player on your team, it makes it hard to coordinate.

A third reason, is sometimes I wish to invite my friends after the game is full, but I can't remove any players.

Thank you.

You need to specify whether you're talking about players that you invited to the game or players that joined via open seats. The answer is very different between the two.

I don't think being able to remove people from the lobby would solve this. Most of the time I see, the bad behavior doesn't come from players until after the game starts, which renders your idea useless.

Instead, you should be reporting them. Click their name, then the Report button and they will be dealt with. You can also blacklist them so you won't see their chat anymore. This works both in the lobby and in the main game, which renders it superior to a method that only works in the lobby.
