1) Switching from larger games to smaller ones when there are too many slots filled. You have an excess of players in the game that you have no way of handling. For instance: switching from a 2v2 to a 1v1 when there's three players in.
2) Switching from 3v3 to 2v2v2 when three people are in the same team. You now have invalid teams, since there is a team that is too large.

This is how I used to handle this situation: one of us creates a new game, sets it to private, and sends the join code somehow to the other person. Once they join, set the game to public. It honestly works, although you need some other channel of communication for sending the code.

Didn't even think of those. Those are both major problems. I can't solve problem 1, but for 2 I can tell you to use the in case of game switch type you can select that in case of 2v2v2 go this color, and only allow 2 colors for each.

It's not that I fear in my own self-confidence, it's that the others fear in it.
