One of my pet peeves with Venice is the lack of a friends system. The main use case is all joining the same lobby and then hopping servers together. The important bit is that friends then get placed on the same team and same squad (if possible).
My experience playing Venice together with others is this:
- someone joins a server. He or she (sometimes) forgets the title of the server, so has to leave to relay the title of the server they are going in to the other r player.
- A small fix would be showing the title of the dedicated server when you’re in game.
- Once both players are in the same server. There’s a chance another player is in another team. Switching teams often cannot be done because the game says it would get unbalanced or you’re switching into a winning team which may not be done.
- As mentioned above in other games, first joining each others lobby and then joining the server together should reserve a 2 spots on the same team if available. Otherwise stop them from joining if that server is too full. Additionally being able to recognise who in the player list is your friend would be nice.
I hope these ideas resonate. Initially I felt like making a mod to do this but then felt this was more of a core client feature. Let me know what you think
