Can we have more rooms in NPL?
Quick host just failed because all rooms are in use.
Only 03-10 are free, but i cant pick these rooms. All other rooms are constantly in use.
If a room become free, instantly the room is claimed by someone.

I also notice to other things:
1. Lots of rooms are open, but host is AFK.
2. Many rooms are used for single player. Just 1 player enters the rooms and start playing.

I dont know how to handle this kind of behavior. Any ideas?

We apologize for the frustration. We've been experiencing a massive influx of new players these past few days, leading to lobbies filling up quicker than we expected. Adding more rooms requires a lobby restart and we'll wait until after peak hours before doing so. Thank you for understanding.

I understand it will take time to implement this change.

Just wondering if something can be done against Single Players who fills slots in NPL. You dont need Voobly for SP. I really dont understand why you take a slot to play SP...

Same for AFK host: Implement something like 'If host is AFK for at least 5 minutes, then kick host from room'. It will free up many slots.

We have restarted our lobbies and added more game rooms to our popular lobbies. We apologize for any inconvenience this restart may have caused. Yesterday we have run out of game rooms and we wanted to fix this, before the player numbers go up again.

PS: Lobby restarts display a Code of Conduct message, instead of a maintenance message. This is a client bug, please ignore it. Again, apologies for any inconvenience. Have fun on Voobly!

Just to letting you know: At peak hour there were 700 out of 750 rooms used.
At least 10% of the rooms were filled with locked rooms (no one joined) or AFK hosts.

We have split our lobbies due to crashing issues yesterday. Our lobbies unfortunately cannot handle lobbies with more than 700 game rooms and more than 1k players.
