some nice fixes but this is what i really wanted fixed:
1. It's nice that they show the IP of the server in the lobby but I want an easier way to join a friend in a game ESPECIALLY on a ranked server!!!
2. Why can't you join a ranked server while the match is in progress. This is ridiculous. It's not the fucking GPL!
