I recently saw the new update, and was impressed. But after playing a bit I found this bug.
 
It started when I joined this server:
 
What?I don't know if you can see, but none of the buttons to join teams are selectable.
 
When I went back to the server list, I saw this:
 
5/4?I noticed the previous bug happened when I joined a 23 server. I don't exactly know what's going on, but at least I can show you how to avoid it.

I know why this happens: In the server code, it says "let the new player join the team with less players."
As well, in the server code it also says "let the new player join the team with less points."
 
There is a problem with this scripting: if a team in one of the servers has less players, but IS STILL AHEAD IN POINTS, then because the sccripting says "don't let the new player join a team that does not fit this requirement," it will not let you join. 
 
In simpler terms, the server will not let you join a team with more players. It also will not let you join a team with more points. If a team has less players, but MORE points, you will be allowed to join neither team. 
 
CarbonTech, please fix this bug. Please change the scripting to allow one or the other, but please do not apply server teams to both of these factors.
 
Sorry if this confuses you,
