  • Spectator counts are wrong

    ISSUE : Spectator counts when watching a game are wrong/ inconsistent

    REPRO : Join a game that says it has x players in WATCH tab

    EXPECTED : Number of spectators listed above camera controls will be x

    ACTUAL : Number of spectators is often times very different number than x

    One game last night where I could actually chat, someone asked everyone to type how many spectators it said and everyone had a different number. This morning I join many different games to watch and each game had a different number of spectators listed in the 'WATCH' tab. However, no matter how many people it said were watching a game in the list, once I join a game in spectate mode it always says "165 spectators" above the camera controls (and I cannot chat with anyone, but that is another bug).
