  • Spectator Idea: Show a team synopsis when clicking the team name in the top bar

    I have been spectating a few tournament games over the past few days and this question commonly comes up: Who the heck is X team?
    In response to this, I have come up with an idea: Show a team synopsis when clicking the team name in the top bar of the UI.

    The idea would be that when you click on the team name, it would pop up a small window with some basic information about the team, such as:
    • Full Team Name
    • Team Foundation Date
    • Team Location
    • Sponsors
    • Standing in the tournament being watched (Don't know how feasible this one is)

    As to where this information would come from, my idea would be to allow teams to populate their own information (maybe as a part of the team description in the community tab?) and have it pulled from there.

    I made a quick mockup (link below) to show how I envision this looking, but I think the community may have better ideas as to what kind of information could be included here, how the look and feel could be, and how this information could be populated/pulled.

    What do you guys think?

    the xxxxx for team name is a bug (just to point that out)

    the rest +1 leme also quickly add this to the common suggestion list
    If you find spelling errors, you are free to take them.

      Oh, I meant X team as in X = whatever team is playing at the moment (replace X with MYM, Na'Vi, etc), wasn't aware there was a bug like that, I've never encountered it. Thanks for adding it to the list!
