  • Lobby Series - Same "dotaTV" for all game of the series.

    Something that is mildly annoying during TI3 is having to close the first game and having to wait for the second to start. Not really a problem, but it got me thinking.

    Is there any chance of implementing a "sv_restart" into lobby series? After the GG screen either have it wait for a specific time or have admin start the new draft.

    "Draft is starting in 5--; minutes - [to start Draft type .ready]" or "Draft phase in 10--; Seconds" and then having it go into CM mode again but to start the actual draft you either click, ready, type ready or admins start it. So players have a chance for a break in-between games.

    The main purpose here, minimizing game downtime. Players don't need to rejoin the lobby. Spectators knows then the next game starts.
    This has been standard practice during CS scene a while now and with plugins (zblock, ESEA etc.)

    Just a small Quality of Life suggestion. I don't know if it has been mentioned before or if it is possible to implement.

    you can use console command "dota_spectator_auto_spectate_games x", where x is the ID of the tournament (you can see the tournament ID in, to auto spectate the match.
    BAD person is someone who only think that he/she is a pro and others are noob and then blame the Matchmaking challenge.
    GOOD person is someone who accept the Matchmaking challenge and succeeded getting a teamwork in his/her team
