Is possible to set the server to automatic connect a player as spectator when it reaches the max number of players? And if it's not, I think this should be a great feature to help noobs that don't know the command to do it (spectator + reconnect).

TKS!

How about being able to vote to bump idlers/newbies into spec in 4on4 mode too?

yes i believe that is understood, gaz was replying to manny

i'm not sure if this would be possible in the server, but it would be possible in the client, instead of printing 'server full...' it could try for 3 times and then try as spec

well afaik client uses CL_CheckForResend to resend the 'connect' if the server was full - you'd just have to have a counter to count the number of reconnect attempts and then switch to trying to connect as spectator instead

however, apparently we also have this is mvdsv now here
