  • Coaches shouldn't need to accep the game

    There is no issue with a coach being AFK. The issue it can cause however is that the game doesn't ready up.

    For example


    If the coach is AFK the game doesn't start but since the coach doesn't actually stop the game from being played they shouldn't need to ready up. The more people we need to ready up the more issues and higher number of games won't actually start. With only 10 player we have the infamous 9/10 players etc. With more players being added as coaches it's only going to cause bigger issues.

    tl;dr:
    Remove coaches from the ready up

    If you aren't going to remove coaches please at least make more room for the green dots on the top row. My OCD can't handle it.

        Totally agreed, coaches are not actually playing the game like the 10 other people in the queue.

          You can have 1 coach per party and you can have 2 people in a party with 1 of those people being a coach. That means you have the chance of getting 20/20 people if everyone has a coach.

            Like OP said, more people that need to ready up, the more chances of someone not accepting. I love the idea of coaching though. Teach me coach!!! Just imagine the trollers<3.

                  The sad part is, OP`s logic and communication skills in both languages make me want to type "cyka" as well. I guess I`ll just facepalm and pretend I didn't see it.

                          You're all making the (likely incorrect) assumption that a coach is the one holding this up.

                          Given that the coach is queued with a another player or players, it's far more likely that they'll be alerted that the queue popped and it's one of the solo queue players that is afk.

                            Doesn't matter what is being assumed. Fact: coach also needs to ready up. It is being said that the coached should not be included in the ready. It should always be 10/10 and need no more. Coaches do not benefit from coaching, the players do.
