A Wierd Bug that I keep running into...

Don't know how to get out of spawn? HLSS plays sounds really slowly? Or you need a dispenser? Come here!

Sometimes when I play and I choose a team, it forces me into this really weird glitch. It rings me up as a spectator, but when I talk it says "*dead*" by my name. I cannot join the game either. If I want to play, I have to reconnect to the server. Has anyone else had this glitch?

It's a quite common glitch that I'm surprised hasn't been fixed yet, I get it at least once a night when I play TF2.

To my experience, it also only happens on stock maps or community maps accepted by Valve (Turbine and Fastlane, for ex).

I have yet to see it happen on a separate custom community map. But yes, unfortunately, you have to reconnect to clear it.

It happens when you try to join a team, but someone beats you to the punch by a millisecond. This seems to confuse your game, leaving you into a limbo between spectator and "being part of a team".

...now I think on it, I should probably check if you can get around this bug with a console command rather than reconnecting to the server.

Quickest way to fix it is to stay in game, but open up the menu and doubleclick the server you're on. That way you'll leave and join instantly and not lose your spot.
