does anyone know when they will fix so you can search for co-op?
umm, shortly after never...
Yeah, we don't have plans to add matchmaking of that sort into the game.
no idea why.. it is the only real problem in the game... and means that I've nvr once been able to play co-op.
That's not really their fault that you don't try and make some friends. There are plenty of avenues to find a co-op partner. The official Steam group, robotentertainmentsfans.com, Twitter, etc.
Yes it's more work than a matchmaking system but you can't blame Robot for your own lack of trying. The game has been out for quite a while...that's on you.
I'd like to see a Rogotin skin for the warmage and sorc. I envision it as kobold runner with a nifty hat riding your shoulders as he lobs grenades at your barricades whilst smacking you in the back of the head.
To be honest, no match making system is retarded. Yes, you can work around it but you shouldn't have to.
This isn't a "versus" type of multiplayer.
I have no problem playing against an unknown player, I wouldn't even consider joining a coop game with someone I didn't know anything about.

My suggestion would be to meet some people to play with right here. As mentioned above there are many tools available to find co op partners. Ya just have to use them. The forums on steam practically scroll with people looking for partners.
I also have an insane schedule and find alot of my game time is at 3 -5 in the morning. Other than my son who will rarely do some co op with me, I had no one else to run with. After becoming a member of the community here, I found that now I have a co op partner ready to go anytime almost 24 hours a day in 5 or 6 differant countries. The people that you see regularly posting on these forums have a true love for the game.
