  • dota_spectator_auto_spectate_games enhancement suggestion

    Right now dota_spectator_auto_spectate_games only lets you enter a single tournament ID to watch, it would be awesome if you could enter a comma or space separated list of tournament IDs that you'd like to watch, in descending order of preference. For example, if you wanted to watch Star Ladder 7, but also the WePlay tournament, you could use 'dota_spectator_auto_spectate_games 69,78' and the Dota2 client would select first a StarLadder game (if available) then look for a WePlay game.

    It would also be really cool if casters could have some sort of ID so you could do something similar. Say Tobi's ID is 3 and GoDz ID is 5, then you could do something like the following: 'dota_spectator_auto_spectate_casters 5,3' which would indicate that you'd like to listen to GoDz if he's available, and if not then Tobi, otherwise no caster is selected.

    If you wanted to get really tricky you could probably some up with some sort of syntax so that caster IDs could be specified on a per-tournament basis, but something like the above should work for nearly everyone and would be really handy if you have dota up on a secondary computer for speccing during the day.

      in addition, the popup window for casters should disappear in 20 30 seconds. I want to lay in bed an let autospecate do the work.. not to get up and close the window. Thanks

      Also, this feature/setting should be implemented in Api not just by console. or provide IDs for leagues in-game/store.

      Oh, and also add an option to autospectate users. (not just friends, everyone)

          I (personally) was thinking more like Spotify or Rdio where you pick the tournaments and casters you like and it auto-plays based off of that.

                There is a feature similar to your 'dota_spectator_auto_spectate_casters' -- 'dota_broadcaster_language', though as of TI3 it was bugged.
