There is an issue in the interaction between the “looks like you crashed” workflow offering a player to rejoin, and the substitutions workflow. If a player experiences issues in-game and issues a self report by “!rep me” prior to quitting TF2 client and reconnecting, TF2C offers an opportunity to reconnect but that reconnection will not succeed. Upon selecting the “Reconnect” option TF2C will respond with an error message stating that there has been a failure to obtain slot.

This is likely caused by the auto moderator issuing an automatic cool-down and in my opinion the right thing to do would be to obviate the auto cool-down period if the reconnection offer was accepted.

Good find!


When you're reported by yourself or by others, that modal window should not be displayed. It does check for this after you click it (nothing happens), but I have now aligned this with the displaying of the modal as well.
