It would take 32 seconds to go through the entire player list.  It used to
take 24, but maxplayers was increased.  The problem was that the bandwidth
limiting code would skip a player, and then it would take 32 seconds before
their turn came around again.  And then they might get skipped a second time,
and so on.
