Open Game To Public?

Join a multiplayer player public game. Any act, any type.

Press ESC. Like you want to leave.

Open game to public is Unavailable. Now why is that?

One would think that it is an option to open your own game to the public?

Any clarification?

Making a game session publicly available can be a little confusing, but I’ll try to clear it up a bit. The option is greyed out in existing public games because it’s already been activated and can’t be edited (i.e. changing it from Monster Slaying to Brawling) or turned off. The option will be available if you want to turn a solo session or a private multiplayer session into a public game, but only the party leader can do that if you’re in a group. I hope that helped!

Thank you Grimiku, I am about to start my own game with some buddies soon, I will see if I can make it a public game.

Fingers crossed.

Cheers.

Also if you have someone in your party to begin with, you all need to be in the game session before you can open to public (if one person is in AH/Char select you won't be able to open the game).

I understand this. My question/confusion is, I wish to host a public game. How do I do that?

P.S. Have not tried yet, but I am about to have a crack at it.

Cheers.

Ok, I have worked it out and it is pretty easy.

For any that don't know how to do like I just did, here is all you need to do.

Open any game and monster power you wish. Then hit your Escape key. Select form the menu, create a public game.

Cheers all :-)
