I used to use host filtering while in a party in COD WW2 on the XBox all the time. I just had to make sure that all the members in my party were on my "Allowed" list if they were outside my range. However, about a month ago a regular problem started happening. I would get kicked from the load screen right before a match and the party would then follow me out. If I'm the party leader, this doesn't happen, but it takes several minutes to find a match, no matter how big I set my radius.
Is there a workaround for this? It's gotten to the point where I have to chose between playing with my friends or abandoning host filtering.
