  • Game hangs up during live game

    1. Watch live game.
    2. Press pause.
    3. Wait until game has ended and everyone disconnect. You need to wait out until timer... eh, will stop counting time? If that's how you can call it. The timer on the bottom panel where [your pause time]/[counting]. As I understand - until server deletes the session.
    4. Press "Go live".

    Result is on screenshot. Tried it multiple times. For convenience you can press pause just before the ancient destruction.
    Game is not crashed, you can minimize\maximize it, in-game ambient sounds is still going, but interface is not clickable, only thing that still work is an altkey showing hero pictures on the map and different statistics (only through hotkeys) like net worth etc. thou they stay on the screen once you open them. There is no other way to got out of this state, but to force end task.

    Expected result:
    "Match has ended" message, but still allow to watch the game from the paused moment.

    Ok, I tried to press play button and this yield some funny result. First of all, timer will freeze on the moment of the end game and pressing play, while allowing you to watch the game further, will DECREASE the other timer so the game ending happens when they equalize. For example 44:20/52:30, I jump 3 minutes forward and it's 44:20/49:30.

    Also, when they finally equalize game hangs up exactly like in the first case.

    Expected result:
    Watching from the pause. Kick to main menu in the end, similar how it happens when watching downloaded replay.
