Sometimes during the map restart, when there are many people joining blue or red team, I usually meet the bug when I choose a team to join, but it fails (due to too uneven number of players probably), and when I try to choose a team again, nothing happens - pressing
. doesn't work - neither class menu nor team menu is appearing, and all I see is the map aerial view with scoreboard. The only thing to do is to re-connect to that server (which is not always possible if the server is full and you're still connected but 'stuck', so no player slot is available).
How to avoid this or how to prevent, or how to recover from such a bug?
