Limited slots in high ranked servers

Wouldn't it be nice if there were an organized waiting list on crowded servers?

Instead of holding down 'enter' you could just be given a position in the queue?

Just a thought.

But let's keep it in this topic from now on.

I was hoping for this as well...

How about the server keeps an ordered list of specs as they enter the server.

When a slot comes free, they get a message with Accept or Cancel asking if they want to play.

After 15 seconds the message cancels and moves onto the next in line?
