    [idea] waiting list

    New idea, how to populate empty servers/gametypes.
    If you want to play certain gametype/map/mod, but see there is zero players, you either leave game or go to other gametype. What if add 'waiting for players' feature, you just select server. Other players (and you too) see in server browser something like that: 0/12(1 waiting) and may join 'waiting list.'
    When there are 4 or more (depending on your settings) players on queue, you see message that there is enough players to play on that server, and asks to join game.
    You may play other at server while waiting for game. Maybe even using more than one waiting lists.
    With this feature you dont want to 'zombie sleep' on server 15 minutes alone, praying if someone will join it (and wont leave in 1 minute).

        The problem with the waiting list idea is: what do you do while you are waiting (10/20/60/120 minutes)? Surf the 'net? Watch TV? Call your GF? Fix lunch? Run to the store? What happens when three other players show up and you are still at the store? "Where the hell is that 4th guy that's supposed to be here??"

        ReverendCrow has it right. You play against bots. You have something to do while you wait and you are there and ready to play when others show up.
