    Default Unable To Join Certain Games

    When I go to the Sector Map, I get a message saying "The selected game is currently not allowing players to join" any time I try to join a game over halfway completed (accroding to the progress bar). It is always this message, regardless of the game's population. I have no problems when joining games less than halfway done.

    oh, is that it. I wasn't unable to find the cause of it. Leaving a map to get my eng and unable to rejoin that same map. Even can't help out guild members

    Okay.. this has been occurring to me a lot lately.

    So i discovered that When you leave a map, Magical Bugs set in, and you cannot join back with any of your toons that is in that account.

    This may happen in PvE or PvP.

    It's possible they did it on purpose to stop people getting 10-20 bosses and pink chances per miners luck by switching toons or joining 99% completed games.

    A dev could answer that if it is unintentional and a glitch/bug
    I was wondering about this also

    Unhappy :/ :| :| :\ :?

    I doubt the devs would do that at this height. if they did, so many people would complain. I think its a glitch, i hope its a glitch that gets fixed today or tomorrow.

    I did consider the possibility that this was done on purpose, but it seems unlikely, since it causes more harm than good.

    For example, there could be a group of four or five players halfway through a difficult level, if some of the players get disconnected or leave for other reasons, the remaining players would be forced to continue on alone. On low level bosses like Guardian and Director Bot, they may not be able to finish the level, especially if their engineer left for some reason.

    I do hope this is a bug, and that is is fixed soon.

    I was forced to fight the last boss with two others in a guild run while the other two were trying to get back in. Even guild members that weren't in the run couldn't join.

    Hey guys,

    I was just chatting with the programmer working on this. The deal is that you get the "game is not allowing players to join" message when that game is most of the way done. The intention is to keep people from getting into a game where you are just going to have to spend all your time running to catch up and likely will be over by the time to get to the end.

    Why is it that you want to join a map that is mostly over?

    I guess the days of guild farming are over....

    Coz ppl can clear a map, but cant handle a (mini)boss. We get many requests in guild to help out, if it were only with miner.

    And why would u dont want to join a game which isnt finished? Doesnt seem logic to me denying acces to some legit game time. Many proceed to next map anyway, there loss if they are too late, being late isnt a crime.
    It breaks the game.

    Can you at least not do that in PvP??
    I hate leaving & joining back & not being able to.

    Default enhancers, stims, help others, dc,

    So many reasons you would need to join the game after it is half way done. I noticed that you cannot join if the level is 51%+ completed . Anybody that leaves for any reason loses run, sometimes people just ditch u right before boss and u can't ask for help anymore, I hope this is An issue that will be fixed soon. Miners luck is expensive , the new level to farm for pinks (research station) is nearly as long as reactore core thus I would gladly spend another 3-5 plat on speed enhancers to get to boss if I'm farming pinks, but a research run can take about 15 minutes . If the devs want, they can add longer hallways in the hive to make us waste our miners luck a little more. But please remove this not letting us join games cuz many of us are being held back .
