It's Premium because it is on the Versailles map. If you are using the default Join list, then since you are not premium you would not see it. However you should be able to get to it by specifically searching for the number. If yu have a Premium credit (or someone gives you one) you could join it that way.

Oh man I had this same issue and just assumed they were full, so I joined 83. I even searched for the game number specifically. I have at least one premium credit that I wanted to use.

Ahah! Now it all becomes clear!

Something has gone screwy with the game search for non-premiums trying to see premium games. I couldn't understand why some non-premiums were saying they could not find the Premium games if they had credits. If you have no credits then there is no point in showing it, but if you do, then you should be able to see it. So it is a BUG :o

I will take a look and sort it. Then if you still have a premium credit, you could join the last one (the PPO one).

OK, non-premiums should be able to force the game search to find Premium games. So for example you could join the Versailles April Fools game 155984 if you have a credit.

Could someone who is not premium try plugging in the game number 155984 to Join Game jus to make sure it shows up and feed back here?

Are there any SHIFT games still open?

I see 155984 is looking for 4 more players, but it requires a password.
