Is there a way to see how far along (how many tickets left) is before joining the game?

Example: I want to play Operation Firestorm, I join a server with said level only to find that one of the teams only has 15 tickets left and the round will be over in 3 minutes.

Actually, you can see more, by clicking on the link with the server name on the right, right above "JOIN SERVER" button. Just not the current game status. –  DrFish Feb 21 '12 at 12:26
    
Well correct, I was just saying on in game status, not server settings. Complete server settings are viewable prior to entering as well via @Bora 's method ( and through a search filter) –  Zero Stack Feb 21 '12 at 12:50

You can also see the scores of the players in the game, so that should be a good feel for what stage the game is in. –  Emerica. Feb 21 '12 at 13:19

Good point @Emerica. Unfortunately, max ticket count varies from game to game, and also among servers, so the only thing one would know for sure is, whether the game has just started or if it's been underway for a while –  DrFish Feb 21 '12 at 13:35
    
@Bora Yeah, it would be relative, but its an estimate at least. –  Emerica. Feb 21 '12 at 13:45
