Request: More reserve slot handling options

I'm having a lot of trouble with regulars being kicked by this reserve slot system. I'm thinking about disabling it but I thought I would hand in my two cents before

Could we possibly have a way of creating a whitelist of regular players that we don't want kicked for a reserve slot?

If you cant do that how about making it so that it removes the last player who joined...

Also I saw in another thread there is a wishlist item for a message when players kicked, I would love to see that implemented.

We are not going to introduce an additional level of configurability there. Your tools are the reserved-slots-list and the aggressiveJoin on/off setting. Other stuff will have to rely on 3rd party tools if at all possible.

However, having a better message - that would make sense and we'll take that into consideration. Requires clientside changes and therefore the lead time is long to get such a change released.

The simple answer to your problem is, make them VIP.
If you don't want them to be VIP then you want them to be different which means they have to deal with being kicked for VIP.

Depending on which rcon tool you use you could provide your regulars a
web based frontend where they can add their playername to be on your VIP list for about 12h per default.

Now you need some tool, a plugin for Procon for example, which queries that DB and manages to add / remove those players to the server based reservedSlotsList. ( BETA plugin: ReservedSlotsManager by Fruity )

The only question which than remains is, what happens if the server is full with VIPs and another one wants to enter? The documantation for BF3 does not describe that case, but docu for BFBC2 contains:

I haven't tried but I would expect a BF3 server to deal with it in the same way.
But BF3 has also aggressiveJoin maybe that makes a difference... worst case would be VIPs kicked for VIPs...

Maybe Mikael can confirm / add something to those cases.

The reserved slot feature has stopped working since the last server patch.. does anybody know if/when there will be a new patch released to fix this issue?
