Why is there a limit on team size?

The number of members within a team is currently limited to 10 in order to keep network loading manageable.

Each time a team member's navigation data is updated (every few seconds) a message must be sent to every other team member plus (if base transmission is enabled) the base server. This, of course, must be done for each member of the team. Therefore, the total number of messages is related to the square of the number of team members.

For a team with two members only 4 messages have to be sent on each update (one in each direction plus one from each to base). However, for a team of 10 members up to 100 messages must be sent. A team of 20 members would require up to 400 messages for each update!
