Feature request: maxSpecs behavior

Could you make the maxspecs setting not connect extra specs to the game, instead of kicking them from the channel?

I don't think this is possible without changes to the lobby client/protocol.


I'd like to encourage autohosts to not use the maxspecs setting at all, by the way. I've seen players who really want to spectate work around this by joining as a player and then just resigning immediately.

That might have been me... did it happen recently?
