I would like to configure my TF2 server so that whenever a new user joins, they are assigned to a team without bots, only humans. The opposite team should be all bots are on the reverse team.

Is there a way to configure a TF2 server in this manner?

Set the cvar mp_humans_must_join_team to either "red" or "blue" in your server.cfg

The valid values for this cvar are:

  • "any" (this is the default)
  • "spectator"
  • "red"
  • "blue"

Side note: The cvar is likely ignored for the MvM game mode where players are always put on the RED team.
