Server is full

Postby Cute Tropical Bird on Wed Oct 08, 2014 7:40 pm

What's the point of donating if I gotta wait 5-10 minutes to connect, every time, and with no auto-retry either? Especially on Payload.

Consider adding some additional slots. Just one more slot in each team would make a difference, and I don't think having 34 players instead of 32 will unbalance the game, considering things get back to normal as soon as someone leaves.

I don't think it's possible to have over 32 players on a single server due to engine limitations.

the point of donating is that it keeps the servers up, running and maintained, no donations, no servers ;)

...Well for some people the point is also to get the reserved slot.

What I'm trying to convey is that if I'm trying to join Payload, and even with a reserved slot I can't, and I have to keep manually retrying for 5 minutes because autojoin doesn't work with that, then, by the time I join the map is almost over, and I could've joined anyway on the map change without the reserved slot.

There are reserved slots on the server but there isn't an infinite number of them. If the reserved slots are taken up, there isn't much that can be done.


Although you have donated for a reserved slot, it doesn't absolutely guarantee you a slot on the server at all times. We do of course have other servers available which you can play on whilst you wait for a slot to open up on #8 and you can easily join #8 from our other TF2 servers by typing 'swapme' into the chat.
