Default Joining online via Steam

I have a few questions regarding joining online servers in CoD.
Is Steam the only option?
When joining via Steam, is it possible to check how balanced the teams are before choosing a side? (currently i choose a side, create a plane, join and then check the team balance from in the game- a very laborious process)
When joining a full switch server, is there any way to find out where the runway is once you're in the plane? Currently i make a guess and fire it up hoping to get enough airspeed before i hit something/run out of flat space- not very immersive as IRL i would have some clue where things were

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ya I think better pre-game will be added on later, as it was a part of IL-2 online. Kinda essential imo.

Last I heard hyperlobby was getting into CLOD. Hopefully within the next couple of months it will be up.

How do I join via Steam? Right now I launch the game and got to Lobby - Client.

Vengeanze- my apologies, i should have been more specific. When you launch the game, select 'Multiplayer' and click on 'Client', that is directing you through a Steam server (on my game it launches a small window that drops down stating something like 'Click here to connect with Steam friends' soon after the game starts- very annoying).
In Il2 i usually go to Hyperlobby, select the server i wish to join and Hyperlobby launches the game for me.

I hope Rolltide is correct and the pre-game will be added later. Like many things in CoD the game itself is great but the final polish is very lacking.

I do not have this window. Just disable everything in Steam what you can (Ingame section and others). I do not even notice Steam running since I disabled all settings that I could.
