How come I can't join the server? I was banned for a month, and now that it's up, I tried to join the first server. The server is full so I used the auto-retry. A few minutes later I went back to check and I still wasn't in, but more importantly, a few people had left and others joined. Could this be because they used the Auto-retry before me or is it something else?

Thanks:D

Update: So far, waiting 20mins for a space, Deez Nutz joined 4mins ago :/

Server gets very full past once a thg annoucement is made on the thg steam group and its past 6pm.  
So ideally you want to join around 6pm when the server is starting up, cause once 5 or so people join it will immediately jump to 24 in a short amount of time.

We do not have any priority join system.
The valve auto retry join only checks for a free space once every 10 seconds.
So even though you may have set auto retry before others tried to join the server, they can still manage to get on before you if they get lucky and a free slot appears and they hit join in that 10 second gap between your auto retry attempts.
Also beware that if you mash the refresh button on the join window too often it'll freeze and block your attempt for several seconds.

While we understand it can be frustrating to wait I'm afraid there is no way to avoid this due to the popularity of the server at peak times.
