    Hello,
    I would like to show my users how many players have been found while they are still in the queue. If this is already possible, how do I get this information from the Matchmaker? If not I would like to request this feature.

    Hi ! Thanks for your feedback !
    While it's true this is not feasible out of the box with Matchmaker yet, you can do it though backfilling.
    Configure your matchmaking logic to start with one player with backfill enable.
    With backfilling you will be able to see the number of player assigned to the game server created increasing.

    Hi, how can a client see the number of players assigned in the game dedicated server with backfilling?

    I would guess, that you could receive this information from the server. So you would need your players to join immediately to have the correct player amount. This is really not a solution for my use case.
