The suggested changes listed above by [[Tupone]] effectively makes only one modification to the existing behavior.  Instead of simply joining a player to the least filled team, a bias is imposed to prefer filling teams up first.  That is to say that if we have a map like HiX where there are four teams with, say, 10 players allowed per team -- there will be 10 vs 10 vs 0 vs 0.  New players will cause the third team to be imbalanced until sufficient additional joins/leavings are achieved.
