  • Option to have live games have a build in broadcaster delay?

    A recent community-favored rule has had casters recently switch the delays all on their stream to 6 minutes. This has some complaints just because the casters can't really interact with their viewers very well. Why not create the option to have a lobby setting for "delay for broadcasters/spectators" and they simply observe the game 6 [s]hours[/s] minutes in the past while the players play realtime?

    This gives no awkward stream interaction, and removes the ability for other teams to be ghosting or stream cheating.

    maybe it's sometimes nice for the casters to have some advantage, so anything gets screwed up live, they can correct it.

    But your point is right other spectators that have no Broadcaster slot should be delayed and players watching from the client as well!
    oh and also correct "6 hours" to "6 mintues"
