So, I tried numerous times to join a game with my friends, it takes me AGES to load in, freezing the screen numerous times while doing so, and when I finally DO load in, it automatically makes me join as a spectator, with the team filled up before I even load in. Not only that, upon watching them play, there were massive frame freezing and skipping issues to the point that I barely could tell what was going on.
I had attempted to load into a game by myself out of frustration, and for some reason the 'Co-op' queue had signed me into the PvP queue. Upon finally loading into that, it was very much the same situation; automatically putting me into spectator.
