Here’s what I know so far:
Player IDs are numeric values that are assigned as players join a server, starting with “1” and incrementing each time a new player joins.
If a player leaves, then rejoins, they would be assigned a new number.
Here’s what I want to know:
When a player is assigned a number and then leaves does their old number go back into the rotation or are the numbers always sequential?
Player 1 joins. They are the first player so their ID = 1
Player 2 joins. They are the second player so their ID = 2
Player 1 leaves.
Player 3 joins. Is their ID = 1 (no longer in use) or is their ID = 3 (the third player to join)?
I can write code to test this. I’d rather ask and see if anybody knows the answer first.
