  • Spectator chat showing Hero Avatars.

    This appears to be a client-side bug, yet in match 11582090 I spectated and made several comments, some of which had the Invoker avatar in front of what I said, like when you type when you are playing a specific Hero.

    I asked if anyone else in the spectate chat saw this, and they said no, someone else commented and said it depends what hero you are viewing, yet when I tried with all the other heroes it didn't work, only with Invoker. I was also on Directed Camera View, and tried typing Test at random intervals to see if any other avatars would come up, but none did, just Invoker when he was shown on the Directed Camera View.

    This isn't a game breaking bug just made me wonder why this is happening, why its clientside only, and if its intended to go live in spectate for all to see in future. I think it would be cool to show who you are spectating at the time of your comment, so you can see most people chatting are watching the Radiants Clinkz, or the Dires Chen.
