Can we possibly get the team switching turned on that was enabled in the latest patch?
Today's patch enabled Team Switching on all official ranked servers. For anybody with a rented ranked server, here's a note from the PC team explaining some of the new DVARs you'll have to configure.
Additionally, these can be enabled via the Rcon tool (which also updated today) via the Settings tab, under "Server".
It is now possible to switch team in ranked servers. Admins need to set g_allow_teamchange to enable changing teams.
g_allow_teamchange 1 - (ranked/unranked) enables team switch UI option
In ranked servers, teams are auto-assigned. Switching is only possible to a team with less players.
g_teamchange_keepbalanced 1 - (unranked) team change allowed only if balance is kept.
There is a grace period at the beginning of the match that admins can set. During this period switching teams can go in any way, but auto-balance will keep the teams balanced for the duration of this period.
g_teamchange_graceperiod 60 - (ranked/unranked) gives 60 seconds at beginning of the match to switch teams and auto-balance is enabled.
g_allow_spectator 1 - (ranked/unranked) Allows joining the spectator team.
We hope you like these new additions. Full patch notes can be found here: http://bit.ly/gnfv3r
