why is the server browser so bloody terrible?
i enter a server that has about 60 players, after long loading, im forced back to the main menu saying the server is full.

this happened far, FAR too many times and it's incredibly frustrating. from what i understand, while im loading, other players can also enter the server, so when im done loading suddenly all the spots are taken.

what the hell? who designed it in such a terrible way? as soon as you enter a server the spot should instantly be taken, not snatched away by someone else.

it even happened when the server changed maps!
im terribly sorry, but this is some terrible programming, i have never seen any other multiplayer game do that. even really old ones.

This seems to happen to a select few people. The server browser never lies to me about how many players are in the server. The only time I have been kicked back to the main menu was when it was 63/64 and someone else loaded in before me.

OP is right. This happens to me all the time and i hate it!
The game doesn't reserve a slot when you connect to a server, so once the (long) load time is finished, the slot can be taken from sombody else and you get kicked back to main.

I agree totally. Server browser is bad.

The original 'Day of Defeat', which launched retail 10 years ago, had a que system for entering servers. It should have been the industry standard since then, it's simple, makes sense, and it works beautifully.

You had an option to enter a que for a server if its currently full, go get another drink, go take a p!ss, whatev...and when you get back you're loading into the server of your choice and life is good.

Why it wasn't implemented here, who knows, I think the devs got so caught up with modeling the inside of tanks (that nobody cares about) that nobody remembered to do the things that actually made sense and made gamers happy.

I cuss outloud every time I try to get on my usual servers and I gotta go through the same crap as the OP is talking about. I feel your pain.

When you launch the game.. it tells you it uses the Unreal Engine, that should be your answer right there. Unreal is not known for amazing browsers at all
