  • [Suggestion] Disable spectator chat in custom game setup options

    Once more and more tournaments start happening, especially in the final release, watching those games on DotaTV will get bigger and bigger, but it would be nice to allow casters who are making the lobbys too turn off chat for spectators.

    It would avoid a constant wall of text because there would probably be thousands of people watching and talking, and conversations during tournaments are usually pretty terrible.

    Or even better could be that broadcasters can always see the chat between them and the teams and could toggle being able to see the spectator chat on and off.

    While everyone spectating cannot see the chat between the broadcasters and teams but can see the spectator chat and even have the option to disable chat for themselves on and off if they want.

    It would be great once more and more tournaments start happening, especially if they allow spectators on DotaTV but all that chat would be pretty annoying to just see all that white text constantly.
