Had my game mode set as Non-Random, found myself in a Random-type game in T1 Deathmatch mode. A bit annoying, as I'd calculated what I needed and lost through the random thingy '
Also had trouble when I went full-Pillz and when the battle started, there were none on my character.
I believe it's the majority setting that takes over the room. For example, 10 people in the room, 6 have random as their option, now the deathmatch is in random.
As for the second problem, make sure you click on your pillz not just hover and think you clicked. (Has happened to me before )
