If you read the documentation that comes with brink server software you'll see that brink servers can be "hijacked" When a server gets hijacked, its not a bad thing, it just means that there IF there is a high demand of say co-op which is 8 humans vs 8 bots, the matchmaking system will send the party, or group to your server, and your server will change into a coop game.

Your server will only be taken over by a different game type, if it is empty, and has been empty for a certain amount of time (no idea what that time is)

The cvar is net_allowServerHijacking "1"

By default its set to 1 so change it to 0 and you won't see that happen.

the cvar is actually:

net_serverAllowHijacking 0/1

1 = your server is enabled hijacking and can be turned into a coop game
0 = your server stays public with 16 slots
