How do servers work?

Okay, so this is a question I’ve had for a while. For this post, I’ll be using the popular game “DOORS” as an example.

When a user joins the lobby, they are presented with about 20~ elevators that each have their own player cap. Some have 0/1, or solo games, and I think some elevators have a max of 4 players, which sends all 4 players to the same server. When you step into an elevator, you essentially join a queue. In about 15 seconds you are transported to a new server (which is the game) with only the people who were in the elevator when the game started.

How can this be done?
