:question: DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). Limit to ONE issue per thread.

(Emphasizing this because my last post was marked duplicate with a crossplay post.)

There seems to be something preventing me from playing with my friends in multiplayer. This manifests itself in two ways:

  1. If one of my two friends (who are both also playing on Steam) creates a multiplayer lobby I can not see it, it does not appear in the “browse games” lobby for me. Searching for the game ID does not bring up anything either. The converse is also true: if I create a lobby, neither of my two friends can see it.
  2. I can not invite them (or anybody) to a ranked lobby. When I click the “invite teammate” button, I get the message “Failed to bring up the invitation dialog, please try again shortly.” Interestingly, the converse here is NOT true, both my friends are able to invite players to a ranked lobby just fine, including myself. We played a game together just fine this way, by one of them inviting me to their ranked lobby and queuing up. However I am still unable to invite anybody to my ranked lobby and issue 1 is still present.

To clarify, the two of them can and join see each others’ lobbies just fine, it just doesn’t work with me.

I can also see and join dozens and dozens of other games open in the lobby just fine, just not any created by my friends.
