    You don't, it's not supported. You should create an amateur league and submit an application for official ticket - check how other communities like rd2l do it. Not even them get this easily, looking at the recent reddit cry for help.

  • How to connect to practice lobby match as spectator via console command?

    I have bot hosting lobbies and I would like to add option for players to connect as spectators and watch.

    But whenever I try command like this:

    connect_hltv =[A:1:1212361728:8227]

    I end up with error:

    [SteamDatagramClient] Cannot connect to proxied gameserver [A:1:1212361728:8227] via steam datagram. We don't have an authorization ticket!
    [Networking] CNetworkSystem::SendPacket Warning: UNKNOWN ERROR : =[A:1:1212361728:8227]

    How to I authorize ticket or get HLTV IP address to watch game?
