Joining public games and game tags

General Discussion
I'm not really sure how high on the priority list this should be or how much work it is compared to other things, but right now joining a public game to do things isn't working very well. I'm not sure if its partly because its bugged or not. Someone said in general that the tags are bugged, but I haven't verified with any sources.

Anyway when I select tag Greater Rift wanting to do Greater Rifts all the people immediately leave or anyone who stays starts doing a normal rift. If I want to do bounties in anything other than Act I there isn't something I can do in public joining.

That may not change even if there were a tag as most people are gravitating to Rorg...but anyway on the whole there are some changes that would be nice to see in finding people to play with without asking people in general chat.

I want to actually play now..not really sure of the possible solutions interface changes, but if anyone has any input maybe we could get this interface fixed at some point.
Its a known bug
Partly because its bugged perhaps, but even if the current system weren't bugged its still lacking in my opinion.
As HeMan noted, there’s currently a bug affecting Public Game tag selection, resulting in players being placed into games under a tag they didn’t actually select. This bug sometimes occurs whenever a player selects a tag from the drop-down menu, but instead of locking in the player’s intended tag, the bug will cause the game to select another tag (often the one right below it). We're aware of this issue and are working on a resolution for a future patch.

I'd also like to point out that we're looking at making some additional quality of life improvements to the Public Game tag system in future patches. Ultimately, tags are there to help players find games easier, and we recognize that there are small changes we could make to help the system as a whole function a little better. We’re open to your feedback in the meantime!

can we also have a min paragon level for public torment difficulties?

I hate joining a t6 rift seeing a level 90 person leeching for exp and drops.

I know we can vote for him to get kicked but nobody likes to do that, I feel bad for doing it but he had no business being there and not contributing.

Sweet,
Now lets talk about Leachers.....you know the one in Seasons and on the live that are at say Lev 50 and are joining T6 game....or my game...making it harder for the 3 that can do T-6 easy but have to take longer because of some person who is WAY under any T levs.

So in that Sub window can you Fine peeps at Blizzard make it so that in a Public game Lev 70 say p1-250 are together and Lev 70 p251-500 all together....

So the only ways that a Lev 50 p0 can enter my game is if I invite them..(In my room) and no one else in the party can.
Is this possible....or is that too much to ask for?
What's stopping players who have selected a tag but ends up pursuing different goals? Can there be a mechanism to lock players on only playing towards a specific goal following the tags?
Making a Game List again like D2 will be great, but in the creating the game option beable to chioce the game mode, and lvl req. needed for the game.

How about an ability to change the tag while in game? "Bounties are done, lets do rifts now"

For the record, I'd looove to be able to name games like in D2, but without trading, I'm not sure if there's much of a point... some better tagging and manual level restrictions would probably suffice.
