I'm wrong again, it turns out this is actually quite old and not actually that broken... we'll see what others who worked on this code say.

I'm sorry, you are right, this somehow has gotten seriously broken in master. I will try to figure out what commit caused this, it must have been very recent.

Specifically, I think your claim about the button is false -- the start button doesn't activate until all players have selected factions. It's only the "ready to start" text that is slightly buggy.

I don't think this is actually true.

Currently, as I understand, the host may not start the game until all players have chosen factions, but the text "Ready to start..." will appear as soon as all available slots have appeared.

This is a minor bug, in that it misleads the players into thinking that the host is stalling.

But if the situation were as you describe, it would really be a major bug, as there is no way the host can generate the WML for the level and send it out until the leaders for all sides have been determined. I'm quite certain this is not the case right now.

When a host is waiting for a game to start and the last slots are filled he may start the game immediately even though other players have not yet selected faction (As evidenced by the fact that the button to start the game activates as soon as they join despite factions being selected several seconds later).
