Placed in spectator

trying to join a game with 3-4 friends, about less than a quarter of the time, we'll have one of us forced into the spectator role and not allowed to select a role on a coop mission.

Happened to me once as well. It was "firefight" mode, I was in spectator mode and waiting to respawn for the final round, but I didn't.
