Lots of players seem to be experiencing this problem when trying to setup custom games currently.

I suspect that this might be related to the null data that shows for wizard level in wizard profiles currently when you first look at a wizard profile. After you back out of the wizard profile and do it again, the wizard level shows each time.

Nevermind. It's actually worse. I managed to create 4 lobbies. 2 of them worked fine with invites. 2 others I came back to them after setting up an async lobby and found that they had reverted. One of them after the invite had been accepted.

I made two games, one worked fine and we're now in game. The other one seemed OK but when I went back in to change the name it looked like the screenshot above.

Is there any known way back at the mo or do I have to close the lobby and start a new one?

I tried closing and starting a new one but still couldn't do anything with it.

I did find that once a lobby was full that I was able to start the match as normal though.

I found that the best cure was to close the lobby, open an ongoing async game (even if not my turn), and then try creating a new lobby.

here is another example

I set up a asynch with myself and Anjovi yesterday and when I logged in today I saw this:

https://steamuserimages-a.akamaihd.net/ ... E83ADFC0F/

Anjovi has accepted but the name has vanished

I logged out then logged in and it didi not corrected itself, so I spectated a game and came back out in which error corrected itself.

So I created another aynsch game with Myself vs Glassjaw and sent the invitation.
I then went back into the Anjovi game and press start game which threw me out into the main screen,

I went back into the game to take my turn. But upon leaving the game and looking at the glassjaw setup I discovered that the bug happened again

Are other people still having problems with this? - I encountered it again this week whilst trying to setup games.

Yes I see it. I don't think I've set up an async game where it hasn't happened after leaving the lobby and coming back in.

As Gryth mentioned, the only way I've been able to fix it is to spectate a game briefly from the spectate tab and return
