It seems to be something that a lot of people run in when wanting to play with a group of friends in a online session, which is trying to join your friend who is in that session. 

 

I don't understand why Rockstar never implemented this 'lobby up menu so you and your friend can group then be placed in a online game together. Instead theres usually a couple spaces left in the lobby and when your friend joins he is unable to join because it's full when it isn't.

Why should it be reserved for YOUR friend?

There are other people in the session, you know...so you want lobbies to max-out at 8 and hold a "friend spot" for everyone? No, not going to happen

They had the party system in GTAIV.  Wouldn't mind it making a return.

I think he means sonething to the effect of, you start in a friends only lobby and then when you switch to public GTA finds a lobby has available slots for everyone in your party together. So it would be tough to find if you have a massive party but if it's just a few people it could find a room without you and your friends constantly switching sessions to get in a public room together.

Did he say that? You pretty just said every game like call of duty, battlefield, forza and many other games are stupid just becuase they have a lobby up option.

 

Also if it were me using this lobby up system it would only be me and 2-3 friends. Do you know how many lobbies are on GTA at one time? A lot!

No. When a lot of people want to play with friends(not all, but a lot.), they would also like to be in a game with other people from around the world.

I've said the game needed this since day one. It annoys the piss out of me having to go to 5 different lobbies before we get one with enough room.

or give us the option to make a private lobby public so we could all get together first in a private lobby and then the person who started the lobby could make it public.

It's obviously needed, the amount of times I've attempted to join a supposedly empty session with a friend and it being full is absurd.

This would be nice as I assume it would fix the issue of getting separated when returning to free roam after a round of "jobs"

I hate that even if we were all(3-5) in a session together private or not before hand, when we return to free roam we all get split up and must try to reassemble the group before moving on to whatever we wanted to do next
