Not having game lobbies is dumb

Would it really have been too hard to allow you to preview the game you are joining? Rather than just join and hope you're in a game with a group rather than one AFK or imcompetent other player? I can't tell you how many times I've joined a game where the host doesn't even know he had the game open to the public and he's just sitting around his stash running to merchants and doing a horrible job at communicating.

What kind of preview did you expect? How is a preview supposed to tell you if a player is incompetent?

Just leave the game and join a new one, or even better, play with a friend.

You have to open the game to the public manually, so I don't see why someone wouldn't know their game is public.
