Despite what the name of this thread might imply, it's about a bug. I was on Discovery, when all of a sudden, people died. The round restrted, and I found myself in the spectator view, still holding my SMG. Not sure how or why it happened, but it did.

Did an admin force you to spectator? Something similar happened to me as the Hidden when an admin forced me to spectator. The server crashed a few seconds later too..

It's a "too many players" bug I believe. Happens when I'm like number 11 on a big server. I'll spawn, die and have my gun on the camera views.

Iso hit that on the head, that is exactly why it happens.

Then it's resolved in B3 as we completely limit the max players to 10 (we allow on extra for reserve slots) - the fix is of course for server admins to not go over the player count...

Don't know if I've read it right... you mean to say 10 max +1 reserved slot (for a total of 11) now? So no more "9/10" servers?

no no, 9 players +1, like how dead clan servers have. Are you making it so that admins can't change it? cause that gets annoying.

In theory you would be able to play with 10 people. 9 IRIS models + 1 Hidden. Whoever killed the Hidden would become the Hidden and the Hidden would take his IRIS spot. It'd probably be a pain to actually do though.

Nope, because then you lose the IRIS character you selected - which is the exact reason we have 9 IRIS models and a 9 player limit, everyone gets a character and there's no swapping...

that way you can tell a player by the model, not by the name!

And that is SUCH a handy feature.
