How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? I get a game invite and it just auto-accepts the invite and messes up the game UI for the next game sometimes.
What should be happening instead? Not getting auto accepted into a party.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? Enter game, get party invite and see if it re-occurs.

When in game randomly when I get a party invite sometimes it auto-accepts the invite and forces me to leave my current game. Has happened twice.

Change your party privacy from OPEN to INVITE in the party menu .. just click the party icon to see the settings in the menu

Still needs addressed cuz I play with randos most of the time anyway, so I can't go private.

It happens to me all the time, no matter if the privacy is open or not.

Happened to me as well, no invite sound, just moved from running game to main menu into another party.

I experienced this issue tonight when playing with two friends:

 

  1. Friend A and Friend B were both in games (seprate, solo parties).
  2. Join Friend A's party.
  3. Join Friend B's party while bringing Friend A along.
  4. Friend A is immediately ejected from their game and returned to the lobby.
  5. Friend A and myself are in the lobby; Friend B is allowed to finish their game.

This happened on April 20, 2019 at approximately 9:40p PDT. It sounds like it is fairly common and reproducible, though I have not intentionally tried it since encountering it tonight.

This is happening to me as well, every time I get an invite I am not notified, there is no pop up from the overlay to even ask to join or not I just cut to a loading screen and bomb i'm in a lobby with a group...normally I would just turn off the invites and the dreadful origin overlay but it's the only way to utilize the squad up after a match feature they added.  This needs to be fixed
