  • [SUGGESTION] Number of spectators

    I don't know if this suggestion has been made before, but I'm making it now

    How about putting the number of spectators at the bottom of the scoreboard, as you have in CS:S ?

    So in the bottom of the scoreboard it would say something like: "DOTATV - Spectators: 453563425"

    Or something else

    I had this discussion with someone the other day like, I wonder how many people were watching our match!

    To which he responded, no way dude, too much pressure!

    I can see both sides of the argument as valid, especially since most trolls feed off of attention, so if they know lots are watching they might say stuff in all chat or something on purpose, etc.

    I'd say leaving it unknown is better.
    If you REALLY want to know, you could just open your main chat UI and find your game in the Watch tab, or maybe even the top 3 ongoing.

      Yes it has some downsides, but actually you want to learn to work well under this kind of pressure. It's not only for gaming purpose but for real life in general. People (and animals too btw) are getting nervous when they see that someone watches them and they're changing their behaviour. In my opinion it's a good way for training, because if you get pro sometimes and play on something like the international, many people will watch YOU. It would then be handy if you'd had this kind of experience before.

      So, T-Up. But it should be optional imho.

        Well I don't really care about the pressure, I don't feel any when I play.

        I always go to then main menu while dead, and see how many specs there are.

            Overall it should be fine, imo.

              People will start acting like their game is a big show, with e-peen on the line. Trolling/big talk is pretty much ensured.

                  Well I don't think it should be, but I do see your point.

                    I like the idea. I was going to post the same thing but found this one instead.

                        Yes, some people can act obnoxiously. However, observers can report players too. It's even better than just players reporting someone. If you receive 2-3 reports, meh. If you receive 40 - bingo!

                          Instead of creating a new thread of something that's been asked many time, i want to ask how Dendi from Na'Vi saw how many spectators were in his game. During one of his streams, i saw text show up on the left side above the map, saying how many people were spectating. I didn't see him type in anything, so it must be binded to a key. Anyone know how he does it?

                            I would like to see this implemented, as I always wonder if we are being watched or not. I like the pressure, it's good for training purposes as mentioned before. Plus, we also know if our match is entertaining or not.
                            Fix how reconnection works now!
