How do you invite friends (in a room, or when you create a game)?
How many online levels are there, and is there any info on how to unlock things, or do you only unlock by leveling up?
When viewing online games, there's a meter on the far right that looks like a 'connection strength' indicator. Is it working properly? I try to find games in the 90's and sometimes I connect, sometimes not. Same with games in lower numbers. What does the number represent?
I haven't tried, but i think you just toggle to mute and hit X. I'll try tonight and see if it's working for me.
Party up. Hit select and it gives you clan and party options. When you join of create a room and have a party, they automatically follow you in. While you can't invite directly it seems, they can join you. There's also the option to see what servers your friends are in on the server list. think it's R2. Joining is a bit quirky it seems since they don't allow you to join ranked games mid game. Hopefully they fix that.
There are 8 main maps, and 22 sub maps of varying sized for a total of 30 layouts. Each has different item placement. You unlock by leveling up, which also earns you points. Unlocking the higher tiers unlocks when you hit a certain rank, so don't bother saving points it seems. Go for unlocks you think will help you most.
There's 4 unlocks that are SP related, the biggest prize being getting warthog in ranked MP for golding every challenge on Twisted Difficulty.
Looks to me to be ping. Lower the better, but some have no info. There's matchmaking server issues right now, and hopefully they'll have them under control by the weekend.
