    How do I get a reserved slot on the server?

    Tactical Gamer supporting members enjoy several benefits. For more information about that, I'll refer you to our homepage (tacticalgamer.com).

    Among those benefits is reserved slots on our Half-Life based servers.

    I've gotten reserved slots working on our Counter-Strike: Source server and I'm ready to begin offering this service to the Tactical Gamer supporting members who PM me with their SteamID. If you don't know your SteamID, just PM me with the name you use on the server. I'll find your SteamID in the server logs without effort.

    The technicalities of how we offer reserved slots may change, but for now the following is how it works. The server has 15 slots, but only 14 players are allowed to stay. When the 15th player joins, the server disconnects them if they do not have reservation. If they do have reservation, the server randomly chooses one player who does not have reservation and removes them. The player with reservation takes the departed player's slot, which again leaves the 15th slot open for the process to happen for the next incoming player. This process takes up to 20 seconds, during which a player joining, with or without reservation, will receive a "Server is full" message (players with reservation should immediately try again to join).

    Presently, players who are removed due to slot reservation are not told why they have been removed; they're simply left staring at the CSS logo on their screens. I do NOT like this, but just understand there's nothing I can do about it for now. I hope to have a more elegant solution in the future, but this one (which works) will have to do for now.

    I also am not pleased that the player removed is chosen at random. I would prefer that the player without reservation who has been on the server the least amount of time is removed, but again, there is nothing I can do to change this presently.

    The above post is antiquated. Please use the following link when figuring out how to use a reserved slot on ths CSS server.

    As with any problem, PM any CSS admin if you need assistance.
