    Increase max players to 17

    I think it would be a good idea to allow 17 players on a server for a couple reasons. If someone is hosting a server but sitting idle in spec and the server is set to 8v8 the server host is taking up a spot. Also if its 8v8 on a normal server this allows one person to spec and be available to take the spot of a person who quits. I know servers can handle more than 16 people, how many are allowed on the Halloween Infected servers...32?

    i think the standalone client can supposedly handle 256 players, not sure why even pro created servers are still limited to only 16.

    Yeah, it would nice if there was like a special dedicated spectator slot for the server host. Even better would be if there was a queue for people wanting to join the game while spectating vs. people simply wanting to spectate the game -- like in duel.

    There was supposed to be but it never worked for some reason.
    I would really like them to up the max players to 24 for user spawned servers and we can use callvote teamsize to set max players in the match.

    Ideally the player size on the server shouldn't be affected by spectators. Spectator slots should be limited to 3 or 5.

    12 players and 4 spectators shouldn't equal 16 players imo.

    Yeah,thats basically what I meant with my previous post.
    Eg the server size is 14 max players but you (me) wants an 18 player FFA server so I callvote teamsize 18 (or even better an option added to start a match) and we now have an 18 player match and 6 spectator slots that don't effect other users abilty to join the match.

    I agree with wanting a 17th slot.

    Pure spectator spots is silly, and I doubt it's feasible or it would have been done for tournaments long ago.

    Why is it silly ? And it`s already done on standard FFA servers (8 player limit and 2 specs..maybe 4,not sure)

    have you noticed that most filled 16 slot servers crash.
