Much needed.. for nearly every single FFA game set up the starting order needs to be decided by RNG, almost every time (this is how it used to be by default).
No matter what order the players enter the lobby, for convenience, their starting order at the start of the game should be jumbled every time (for fairness, it takes the decision away from the host).
RNG needs to decide who goes first in a 1v1 (like a pre-match coin toss) ..starting positions and turn orders in 3way/4way matches need to be random every time. It's only really team games that need to have a configurable turn order/starting positions.
I've reported a bug related to this on more than one occasion, believe it or not the matchmaker also stopped randomising the starting orders (this started around the same time custom lobbies were introduced), I'm convinced it's a bug related to how custom lobbies work (unless it's been fixed in time for the upcoming update, I don't recall getting any reply on it though).
Now even in ranked games the turn order is decided by the order in which players enter the queue, this means the host always goes first.. if someone sets up lots of games, say they queue up 10, 20, 30 matches, guess who always goes first in them..viewtopic.php?f=7&t=4555viewtopic.php?f=6&t=4258
