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.

    this is true. its more about letting the 7th guy participate than making it hard for the other 6. :) Jan 10, 2013 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)
