I explain myself when i open my lobby i find that know-one will enter until i invite someone and he joins. Then i see people entering and leaving my lobby. But my doubt or rather question is why does this happen to me/us - is it down to having a high bad *** rank? is it because all missions are completed and not that many players are at your mathmaking rank? seriously if someone can shed some light in this matter i appreciate it, as its something that i am trying to know the reason too. Not to bothered as to people joining as i have quite a few people who will join as soon as i open my lobby always the same persons, but its more of a curiosity. Thanks for responses.

Depends on a lot of things. I usually fill up my lobbies but I have to refresh it by setting it to offline then back to online public again. I believe it glitches sometimes.

Though most people generally host there own lobbies that way they can do what they want. Last time I hosted a Public match had 3 different girls join each of which did not know one another, what are the odds of that?

If its loot they want they can have it as far as im concerned. all i need require is a rough rider shield with 25k capacity which mine that i know is second best at 20k - all the rest i have at maximum spec and in all elements.

I don't ever have a problem filling up my lobby....Usually within 2-3 minutes people start pouring in. No girls that I have known of though so far. :frown: 1. If your internet connection is not that great when people quick match it searches by the best connection first and then goes down from there so if you're towards the bottom then it might not be making it to you as much. 2 If your gt is Ih8evry1 or something like that then that might be something people will try to avoid. 3 people are chatty when they play online they want to be able to talk to someone so if you don't have a mic or are not greeting them as they join they may say meh, and leave. 4 Also yeah if you have all missions done and your not doing anything then I'm sure at least 80% of the people that join you don't just want to hang out at sanctuary running around in circles (there are some though lol), might at least try going after some raid bosses or something to give people something to do.

first thanks for you response. secondly my problem is not people staying. i have plenty to do in terms of raid bosses etc etc (if not theres always a save in which you make and not all mission are completed just main missions) but i think youve missed my point. onyl thing i forgot to mention in my post is that my connection is really good and that would not be the problem. as to people joining and leaving that would make my post useless as people ARE joining my lobby which they aren't. like i said before except the same few 15/20 that will join auto if theyr online and i open to public its like theyre on my profile waiting for the join in progress to appear :smile: once one enters anyone enters but some1 has to enter that is what i have noticed.

Oooh, well then I have no idea, you might want to check into what Mr. Leo Maximus wrote you then. He know his BL2 much better than I anyways.

Your online lobbies were probably set to friends or invite only for too long. It can glitch your lobbies that way. Next time load you game and set it to public. Save and quit then load back up and people will start joining in again.

some times when youre badass stats are maxed out youre game can be very laggy for other players thats why i changed mine to 500% my friends couldnt do much if i held down rt for a few seconds although i could not see it they would complain i was lagging the game
