Always second player in ranked games



Everytime I play online via Windows live in ranked games, I am the second player (starting on the right side). Why is that?

I have an arcade stick and when I play offline I am first player.

I have a Hori Real Arcade Pro EX.


Try create match, or arcade fight request.

The way it looked to me, is that if you are host you are 1P. If you are guest you are 2P.

If you always join matches instead of host you’ll always be 2P… IIRC.


When you host you are always P1, when you join you are always P2 in ranked.


oh ok thank you
