I played factorio with friends yesterday, we were able to play with 5 people together in the same map very consistently, but the sixth player kept timeouting and making the other players lag.
We're blaming player 6's computer for now, and are hyped for what looks like a 8+ player game this weekend.
It that even possible? Is there a hard limit on the number of players? I couldn't find one. We're not really worried on the server's side, it has plenty of resources and bandwidth, but we wonder if maybe the game doesn't support 6+ players together.
