I have noticed that a few community MvM servers allow more than the default 6 players per team. What cvar needs to be set or what mod needs to be installed on the server to set the max allowed players to a higher (or lower) number?

I would prefer setting a variable over a mod, but will go for a mod if there is no stock functionality for changing max team size.

fyi: increasing the number of player slots will decrease the amount of slots available to the machines. meaning the stock maps will become painfully easy. – Colin D Jan 8 '13 at 19:40
this is true. its more about letting the 7th guy participate than making it hard for the other 6. :) – Steve Konves Jan 10 '13 at 4:29

Here's a mod that allows up to 10 players on an MvM team (9 if using Replay, 8 if using both Reply and SourceTV)
