If you are up to editing your autoexec.cfg and config.cfg files, you may permanently stop future warmups with the following command that you can paste into your files (and save afterward):

mp_warmuptime “0”

If you happen to be an admin on a server, you will need to use the “rcon” (remote console) command:

rcon mp_warmuptime “0”

You can also “time” the warmup end so that it happens when a sufficient amount of players join your server with the following command (x is the number of players set as a threshold):

mp_endwarmup_player_count x

If you are running an offline match with bots, a separate command is necessary to stop the warmup:

mp_do_warmup_offline 0

If you just want to set a specific time for the warmup, use this:

mp_warmuptime 10
