Server full kick on map change
Does anyone else get kicked from server during a map change and receive a 'Server Full' message?

Started happening to me after the last big update.

I don't remember seeing any posts about it, was wondering if this was a known problem with the game.

Map change is when people trying to get in the full server can squeek through the door before people who are actually in the server already can load the map. When a new map starts, the server loads and then waits for connections and the players auto-reconnect. But its first come, first served, so that is when a new connection can jump in the mix.

I had that happen a while ago in the earlier days of the game, but not lately. I have, however, been able to connect to the server and get in-game only for it to kick me for the same reason.

Heres how this works.Apparently there is a loophole around getting into a full server.All you have to do is join a full server as a spectator and when you are in the match you can pick a side and get in the game.Therefore servers often end up having say 12 more people than its allowed in the server.When ther server changes if that guy that got to ther server that was full gets your spot because he has a faster connection you are left out because during map loading the servers reckonginses all players as actuall players and not spectators.

Usually there are only 2 spectator slots on a server. But yeah, joining as spectator is one way. Me, I just spam the Connect button...
