Summary0004225: Joining a team doesn't consistently add to alternate teams unless other team has 2 players more
DescriptionIf you play a team game (teamplay 1) and use the addbot command, the game will every now and then add a bot to a team twice before adding to the other team. It doesn't add consistently to both teams alternately as expected. I've always shrugged it off, but it became more noticeable recently when doing some testing.

This also affects regular players in games with sv_noteamselect and sv_noteamswitch, guaranteeing that teams will become unbalanced.

If a team has 1 player more than the other team, it glitches. A player joining the game might join the overstacked team leading to unbalanced games.
If a team has 2 players more than the other team, it works as expected. A player joining the game always joins the understacked team.

It doesn't check properly whether the other team has more players unless it has 2 players more instead of 1.
Steps To Reproduce1. zandronum.exe -iwad doom2.wad +teamplay 1 +sv_nomonsters 1 +map map01
2. Hold a button with "+showscores" to see the bots.
3. "addbot" command.
4. "addbot" command. There will now be 2 bots in the game, one on red team and one one blue team.
5. "removebot" command.
6. "addbot" command.
7. Repeat step 5 and 6 a few times until you see it add to the team that already has a bot.
