How does role preference actually work ?
My current order is: 1 Support 2 Medic 3 Trapper 4 Assault 5 Monster
Just now I joined a skirmish game and we were 3 players in it.
Once we got to class selection screen I was forced to play Monster, which is my last choice in preference order.
Both Support and Medic slots were open (Empty) and those are the two roles at the top of my preference list.
This happened before with another game with only 4 players in it - Medic role was left open (Empty) and I was forced to play Monster. Again, Medic was my 2nd choice and Monster was 5th.
I don’t mean to nag or complain, I just wonder how this can happen.
