  • [Request] Tournament: Add caster's ping/drawing, linked by audio selection.

    When I spectate tournaments, sometimes I have little faith in the camera man or I would like to do some digging myself, and look for information they're not showing me. However, since I'm listening to the casters, when they start talking about specific things and draw/ping on the map I don't see it anywhere on my end.

    It's akin to people on the radio saying, "Look at this thing here".

    Just requesting that Commentators/co-commentators have these drawn on the map, based on the the audio channel you're listening to. I think including an option to disable caster pings/drawings should also be included for those that don't want it.

    Secondly, I would also like to see player pings/drawings if at all possible. Again, it's part of the experience. I sometimes hear the commentators talk about a drawn out strategy of a player, but never see them while spectating in client. It's translated to their streams fine, as they see it happening in their client, but it's not applicable in the observer's client for some reason. Again, have an option to disable pings/drawings while spectating games.
    This ain't ova.
