I'm not quite sure how is match making implemented in some "AAA" games for example. If there's a possibility for player to create his own match (for 2 - 8 players) one of them is supposed to be the host? I wanted to do so at first until I heard an opinion that such solution sucks becouse mostly players have too bad connection to host matches for 8 people for example...
So who should be the host in their own matches? Should I force one of players to host given match or should all matches be hosted by my own dedicated server? Can that be my lobby server as well?
And how many matches(groups of i.e. 8 people) should a casual dedicated server be able to host?
I would be very grateful if you could give me some info on all questions here!
