Lose Friend From Lobby When Re-Searching

I know that 343i has their hands full with fixing matchmaking and I appreciate their efforts. I wanted to report a bug that I encountered last night while playing with a friend. I invite my friend into my lobby and proceed to find a game. After about 10 minutes without finding a match I attempt to back out and search again but my friend is no longer in my lobby and I have to keep sending him invites. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one this is happening to. Please add this to the list of issues to fix so we can get matchmaking to where it needs to be. Thanks!

Not only does that issue happen, but also when playing with a friend i have had him be on the opposite team twice! in ranked it shouldn’t be like that.

Yup, that happened to me and my friend too. When going into a game with friends they should never be split apart from the group. I realize it’s balancing the teams but I would rather have it find another player then splitting me and my friends up.

bump for same exact issue.
