    A possibly-related question to this: is this why it's showing as 23 slots open on the server? Or is that to cover something else?

      Yeah its showing 16/23, shouldn't it be 16/16 if there are 16 SMs on?

        I raised the slots to 23 so that 7, instead of 4, players (SM or otherwise) can concurrently try to join.

          Well I kinda feel bad now for using the 'join anytime if you're a SM' to advertise getting SMs to a couple of our recent additions.

          I understand that the hard limit is to try to keep the balance of 8v8?

            It looks like the denial message is "authentication failure"

              Maybe it is time for a new server, we are completely full of SMs during peak hours. It would also allow me to play with some friends.

              The community won't grow any more if we don't get new blood in. So buying a new server might generate more money to TG than just 1 server from NS.

                That's correct.

                I wouldn't expect that. SMs in this scenario should experience what non-SMs have been experiencing for some time. A brief time in the RR and then kicked.

                  I wasn't even catching the readyroom. On load, I would get the loading screen with "authenticating" as status, then get the failure message after 5-10 seconds.

                    I've had that happen before, restarting steam fixed it for me.

                      I've seen that when I try to connect immediately after timing out during a game. I assume (in my scenario) it's the server's way of saying "You couldn't POSSIBLY by Wyz! He's still on the server!"

                        Yeah, I had crashed on load. That must have been it. I'd never seen any denial messages since I was SM before reserved slots went live.

                          This. I have to go to other servers to play with any of my other friends that are not SMs.

                            I've started the thread for SMs to report when they're unable to join the full server (that's full entirely of SMs). That thread is going to have to have rampant activity before I'd ask TG leadership to consider a second server.

                              This could be saved programmatically, yeah?
