Has this ever happened to you?
You try to start a ranked game, decide it's not going to find a match any time soon, so you try to cancel. The stop button doesn't do anything, so you try to log out...only to have the game suddenly connect and launch, right into a game that never starts and you have no connection with the other players.
Then when you exit you get no response from RO (the chat and game list are both empty) but you can't log out.
There's a problem somewhere here. The game shouldn't attempt to start if I'm logging out. Now I've got to kill the process and start the game up again, and probably take a loss/drop because CoH couldn't decide whether it wanted to log me out or start the game, so did both.
