Custom Battle Connection Issues

Trying to join/create custom battles but I get a “?” for my flag as a “selected nation” in any custom battle lobby.
It won’t let me change teams either (star or cross).
Joining/starting match indicates it loading but never connects and processes forever.
Just updated maybe an hour ago too so I’m not sure, was having this issue on the devserver as well.

wasn’t sure if it was just because of the new map but in this example I created a custom, same issue is happening as before.
