Steve, we also have what you describe listed as a separate feature request :)
Yes, it's hard to find better players - and even harder to get them to stay long enough to fill all the slots to start lol
Hopefully SMG will keep improving the game - so it will eventually have bajillions of people playing online, all over the world, 247... there will be no problem starting a game then!
