Purpose of Friends List?
What is the purpose of a Friends List if we cannot have games with friends? Multiplayer seems to be the only option, yet it's a hit or miss if you want to play with friends. And that hit or miss means going into a game, hoping your friend followed, and then leaving if not there.
If you choose custom match you are able to invite friends to your game. All your friends are listed in the friend list. At this point you need at least two friends to start a custom match. With the upcoming update you will only need one.
