A couple of times on the main site, 8 players have entered a game in the pregame phase (example here)
Due to the nature of the fault, it is impractical to remove the cause. Thus I suggest measures are taken such that it is dealt with far more quickly.
I suggest changing the game process script to process all games to start when they have 7 or more players. Therefore, whenever multiple players joined at the same time for the final slot, the game will start rather than waiting for the process time to run out.
The adjudication script that deals with creating a new game should also check if there are too many players for the game. If there are, those first should be given nations in the game, and the others refunded their points, which will be pot/players.
