Default What influences the 'player' number?

Upon entering the server each player is assigned a number. My question is what events result in the change of this number?
Exiting and re-entering? Map changes? Are the other players inside the server affected by the leaving of another and does the tourny influences it in any way?

Would help me a lot if someone could give me a quick answer.

What do you mean by "number"? Elaborate.

In the server log each player is given a number starting at 0, which is provided alongside a lot of the JSON entries. It can be used isntead of the vaporID

When a client (player) connects to a server, that server assigns the client an unused playerId. The assigned playerId is considered "in use" until 30 seconds after that client disconnects from the server. PlayerIds are assigned only upon client connection and will not change for any other reason (map change, etc).
