Allow "starts now" game time for "real-time" LFG
Many times I find myself just wanting to form a fireteam at the present time, instead of a future date/time. I have tried posting a game for 15 min in the future and then changing the time over and over, but that gets annoying. It would be nice to have a "starts now" type game, that will remain in the games list until there are enough players or the creator cancels it. That way, the post would remain up and current until its either canceled or the creator taps, "go" or perhaps automatically 15 min after the last person joins.
I would much rather use the100.io than the XBOX LFG.
This idea has been started. Add an ASAP checkbox when creating game session that would override the start time. This would leave the session up until its filled (for the remainder of the day) or until the user deletes it.

While we tend to discourage sessions like this in our group, the idea does have some merit since some portion of any group has members that just can't plan their time hours/days in advance.
I think it could use some special presentation - maybe call them "flash sessions". Could pin to the top of the session list for a user-defined period (15/30/60 minutes?) after creation, or unpins it once the creator marks it as having filled/started.
