Haha i had the same problem me and my friend whenever i go to his house we want to play in the same room
What i did was use a force host hack and then have him try join lobby (similar internet)
The force host hack (alteriwnet hack from lolyeah) also has a private match hack that lets u just start the game with less people, also u can add bots with a mod and play with them too
but i just waited for people to join and yeah played with my friend and more people
this was with his computers im banned at home so we could of played lan with bots but its more fun with other people too
also isnt this wrong section?
