|Summary||0007624: Auto reconnect|
Instead of the annoying message that appear when you lost the connect with the server
i would suggest a feature that will automatically reconnect you to the server again after a countdown or something like this.

Nice, this can avoid (new) players starting to look for another server/quitting directly after disconnect, as example if that's faster to get back to gameplay/if they cannot find the disconnected server because new players might not know where to look at recent servers.
This happened alot to my own server: Quick restart and all (as explained, new) players will not connect anymore. But if it auto-reconnect then it doesnt cost time for them to connect again, and also the server playercount on restart might be more constant.
Nice request, but I'd say: show a popup like: "Disconnect <reason_here>. Would you like to reconnect ?".
@ x86 Indeed, better to prompt. But add a reconnect interval of 10 seconds or something because if a server restarts, it needs some time to start up and accept connections again. Without interval, players would directly reconnect when prompted and get a timed out message again since the server is still in the restart process.
Edit: Something like, reconnecting in [seconds] after the prompt.
