    The title pretty much implies what I'm going to ask for.
    So as of now LegionTD2 comes into focus for 3 times per game that gets loaded/queued as I bet some more than me have already discovered while browsing the web or stuff you do while waiting for a game.
    While 1 time can be a solution in order to remind people of their queues I think 3 times is simply too much and caused me to pick a race I didn't want multiple times.

    So in my opinion maybe you should already be able to select the race before you actually find opponants so that this stuff can't happen and/or it should just focus once.
    This one time should be just when the game begins, I guess nobody cares about actually seeing loading bars.

    Personally I think it should focus once, and that's when you found the match. Nothing you can accidentally click and you know you just entered loading screen. Best case scenario is that you get to choose when the game pops up in front but this would be nice too.

    Why tho when you found the match, why not when everyone is done loading? Personally I'm not staring at loading bars, I'll alt tab right again and I bet a lot of people do.
    Whatsoever if it focussed when actually starting the match there wouldn't be a reason to tab out anymore so I think that's when it should happen.

    Over this:

    I think the once per loading screen would be the most sensible thing to do, because after you're done loading, the legion selection pops up and you won't exactly know when that's gonna be, since you'll have no idea the loading screen was done. So whatever you're doing at that time, the cursor might be just at the right spot to pick the legion you don't want.

    Because when it's done loading and you are clicking something on your web browser, it will tab back into your game into Legion Select. Which might cause you to select a Legion on accident.

    And again, if the game pops up at the very start of the loading screen (when you are still at the "Match Found" screen) then you can't accidentally click on anything and you know that you are in the loading screen, so you can alt-tab again.

    I know that Jitsuc also pointed this out, but I really don't understand the reasoning behind this:
    Well, you already gave your own reason on why it shouldn't happen when you are done loading:
    Even if we apply my suggestion (pop-up when you find a match, right before loading screen), you are notified of the fact that you are indeed loading into the game so you can directly tab back out and quickly finish whatever you were doing on your web browser. And again, you can't accidentally select a Legion in the 'Match Found' screen, but you can do that when the loading phase is over :p.

    This might be a good poll question - I've sometimes felt it pops up too often, but wasn't sure which one to remove.

    I don't really mind how it is done tbh, as long as this gets improved. Would participate in a poll too, though.

    Could someone start a poll? I can't seem to find the option and this multi highlighting keeps annoying tf out of me :D

    well, you should choose your legion depending on your teammate, legion spell etc.
    I know that à majorité of players don't including myself most of the time, but making the solo play official by sélection legion before game start isn't a good thing.


    I think we should have more on loading screen actually, to avoid People alt tabing.
    Like, maybe legion spells well get.

    So you can chat with your teammates about stats etc...

    I don't really mind how it is being fixed but the way as it's now is just horrible. Easily the worst thing in this game right now to me
