So as of late I noticed if one or more players don’t pick a character and let the bot choose at random, often times during the VS screen it will show one hunter but actually pick another.
For instance, earlier a trapper idled out. It showed he had Griffin in the VS screen. Not long afterward I had Daisy chasing me down Maggie was right behind her.
Happened the other day too. Showed Val. Caught support out of LOS and got an easy strike only for Laz to pick him up.
I’m on PS4 and I have only seen it occur on quickplay. Can’t confirm for ranked.
