StarCraft® II

Automatic race switch after joining party

Posts: 61
This has happened to be about 5 times since the game has came out which have costed me losses. I will select Protoss at the main menu but it wont stick and will randomly switch back to Terran if I join a party with someone. PLEASE FIX. And when I leave the party, my 1v1 selected race will be Terran. PROOF:

After leaving the party the race remains the same: http://i.imgur.com/Mv8iMQU.jpg

It's very annoying. It seems to happen only if you're in the F2 menu when you create a party.

It also happens if simply go out of the menu then go back to matchmaking usually when you first log on, sometimes it lags and simply doesn't fix, sometimes you simply don't notice and you end up playing t in 1v1 or whatever mode you select.

I've run into this ~5 times when I 2v2.

I usually consider this a free excuse to do TLO's 1-base 6-barracks build.
Cut SCVs at 24, build 5 extra barracks when you get to 650 minerals. push after 1-2 rounds of marines.

Hahaah yeah it was weird. This actually happened to my opponent on ladder. He said he had toss selected but it automatically switched him to Terran. Easy win though! :P

Well we all know that the developers like the Terran race the best. They're just encouraging you to play it more often.
