Seemingly solved the issue by replacing the version of superversus I had with this one instead
and by setting the cvar l4d_respawn_on_join to 0

Went to make an account to post about this, since I absolutely cannot figure out what's wrong, but apparently I already had an account here.

The server will be running normally, there isn't any errors, and suddenly when a player disconnects, the server just closes. However, it will only happen if there are more than 4 players on the server. So I'm sure it is shenanigans with the game not being designed to handle 5+ survivors, but I see plenty of servers that have many players and seemingly don't have this issue.

Another thing to note is that it doesn't always crash, sometimes players leave and it handles it perfectly fine.

Console.log just shows the last thing the server was doing before it died, nothing useful. No crash logs, no errors, no nothing. The console window just closes as if I exited out.

unfortunately, that didn't work
another issue I'm having is I have superversus set to automatically spawn survivors when they join the server, but I have to manually spawn them into the game.
I had a version of superversus that did have this feature work, but I've long since lost track of which one it was.

You should install Accelerator extension.

Alright, I went ahead and installed it. Now I just gotta play around until it crashes again.

EDIT: Okay, so I think I got it fixed.
It could just be dumb luck, so I will have to play further to see.

But anyways,
I installed this version of superversus
and set l4d_respawn_on_join to 0 (since it doesn't work anyways. I have to manually spawn the 5th player onwards.)

Again, it could very well be coincidental but I played through three campaigns with people joining and leaving and it didn't crash.
