Feedback: Auto-Assign

It's been a month now since the new "auto-assign" plugin has been implemented into the server.

Is there anything you want to change about it? Give us your feedback.

I think it would be cool if auto-assign was based on some sort of skill or win/loss metric to actually balance the teams.  Otherwise, I for one appreciate it.  In the very least, there's nobody complaining about people stacking the teams anymore.  It was super weird, and the only server I've ever seen where people identified with the color of the team that they'd start a round on.  I do see people reconnecting to swap teams though.  I think maybe if you delayed the auto balance by just a few seconds, you can make that harder to do.  It would also help people who crash or somehow otherwise have to leave and come back very quickly.  It really sucks to get autobalanced in the middle of a game, especially if you're top scoring or if you're the engineer.

Adding on to this, the auto team needs to let people join first, and wait for players ready time to end, THEN scramble based on their rank in the server or some other metric rather than just every other team. If red is down one, but is already stacked, the next player in goes on red. That sucks.
