How often does the bug occur? Every time (100%)
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Start a party and choose "Open to Friends". This doesn't work. The party is open to everyone as I could see by checking players' information from the chat. Party was full very quickly with players who are not on my friends list.
What do you expect to see? Only players on my friends list can attend to parties "Open to Friends". Friends only parties do not appear on the party tab when a player is looking for parties.

Additional feedback

I have started a new thread for this bug as the previous is marked as fixed.

Sorry I don't have screenshots. My party started 15th of june 8:30 p.m. UTC +2.

I have been experiencing this issue the last few months , 

and it happened again today , ,

which is disappointing, as I put up an invite in Facebook group time and time again saying it will be friends only ,

and some contacts may stay up till 1am to come & it’s already full of non contacts ,

 

it happens randomly works one week then doesn’t work the next

@smoothPEACHES  While hosting a party,you have an option to select if the party should be available for only friends or for everyone.The option is in the form of a slider (Just like the way we decide the paint for a specific wall or an entire room).You'll find that option after you have selected your party type.
If you're saying that random people are attending the party in spite of configuring the party setting to only friends,then it might be a bug.

@smoothPEACHES thanks for your report. I have merged it with an existing thread about the same issue. 

 

Friends only parties haven't been working for a long time.

Hi guys,

 

Yesterday after many many months I made my party to *only friends*. The reason I’d always host “open” parties was because *friends only* were not getting chat at all many many months ago. So yesterday I over slept so I decided to make it a *friends only* so my friends could get in anytime they wanted.

After 13min after I started the party, I realized on the chat that a stranger had joined the party, and about 5min later another stranger popped in the party chat.

 

It was upsetting because I clearly announced to my friends that it was a *friends only* party so they could still join. And when they tried to join the party showed as full.

@EA_DragonsEye Ok, it was the first time it happened to me. Most probably cause I never host *friends only* parties. Oh well, lets wait for the fix Standard smile
