I don't know if this has been discussed before, don't flame.
We all know the problem of empty servers. When I host a job, i'm lucky if I get some joiners. If I choose "join random job" or "join race" I get into a lobby of 3-4 players max. I think it would be great racing with 16 players or play capture/deathmatch in full lobbies.
To me, the solution is the ability to choose lobbies. It would look something like this: (nothing original, it is in a lot of other games)
-> Join Job
-> Select Job Type (for example race)
-> See all races available with sub menu : players waiting in lobby XYZ -> 9/16 (9 of max 16)
It would be so simple to implement this, and it would take out a lot of frustration of empty servers/lobbies.
Thanks for reading, and again, if this is already discussed at length, please state the pro's and con's as to why it hasn't been implemented yet. (this or similair).
