Host or Join?

So, I'm curious, but do you prefer to host or join a multiplayer game?
I personally like to join one, since if the roleplay starts to get a little wacky, then I can safely leave without kicking anyone else off, too.

(Moderators, I'm sorry if there's a topic like this already. I looked and no matches came up, so I hope this is ok!)

I would rather join because if I host then something might get wrong or I have to to do school so I rather join than being a host.

I prefer hosting, because then I know I would be intruding unwantedly :P and because I feel like I'll have better control of the rules and the purpose of gameplay (unfortunately for some reason I can only join games at the moment. Ah well, better than no WQ at all, right :P )

I actually have to join a game. My internet isn't strong enough to support a game and other severs so if I did host a game, no one would be able to connect anyway.
But joining isn't so bad, even though I can still only connect to certain servers, I suppose it gives you the opportunity to leave as you wish without having to end a great rp between other users.

I'd like to host, but I can't, same as BlackWarrior. I can hardly even join games either. Crappy Internet, I guess.

I personally prefer to join games rather than host them. I tend to lag quite a lot when I host games, and besides that, it's fun to go into different chats and meet new people c:

Usually if I am patrolling and such, I join games.
But, if I want to just hang out and chat I will almost always host servers. I just like it more. ;3

Same, Croix. I usually like to hunt and only hunt on MP, so I'll look for a hunting game and join. If there are none, or if I just want to chat, I'll host.

Sometimes I don't like hosting, because if no one joins after a few minutes, I feel like everyone's personally avoiding me. xP

Yes, same here. My internet isn't able to host games, without the lag. Most of the time, I can't even hunt in my own games.

I usually end up joining games, even though I like hosting them. Hardly anyone enters if I host a game, and I don't like kicking anyone off the server if they join my games. But hosting is still what I like to do.

It all depends really, on others connections and such.
If there aren't any realistic RP' games then I would create my own, usually I see packs or power ones.
Yet if no one comes on mine for quite I while I would join a chat anyways.

If I don't find a good server to join, I host, but usually I just join.

I'm most often patrolling for "meat" servers or attempting to roleplay in loner RPs.
