Issues w/ Training Match Submitting / Activating
A few things that have worked for some people having strange problems with this :
Please do wait for crash to catch up to you and finish talking before you go through the doorway to a skill level, this used to trigger and old bug, and it should be long fixed, but if you are having problems it's worth making sure.
Do complete the whole training match, don't worry about the score, as long as you finish in more than 3 minutes. whatever set you are placed into, it will probably rapidly change as you play anyway.
If that fails try and hold out and make the match last for 10 minutes, no matter the score line.
also please ensure the XMPP port (5222) is available on your system, and through your router Quake live network XMPP / port 5222
