  • Make first broadcaster slot being "Admin" of the live game.

    Ahoi, dunno if this is fixed by now or not, so bear with me and my wicked mind.

    There were games in the past where full teams disconnect, if we have a look at the DH Summer '12 even all 10 players. I have two suggestions to make:
    1. Make the game autopause if all 10 players disconnect as long as there are broadcasters ingame.
    2. Let the very first broadcaster slot have the power to pause the game, meaning that usually this slot should be filled with a League-/Tourneyadmin or a responsible broadcaster who is also organizer of the game.
    3. Make the Admin of the game (e.g. the person in the first broadcaster slot) be able to kick unwanted spectators.

        Well this is a pretty good idea, no reason why Valve shouldn't have it. Your second suggestion is solid, but your first suggestion makes no sense (if they decide to remake after picking, and the players leave, the game autopauses?!).

          My first suggestion: When all the players disconnect (e.g. as seen at DH Summer '12, where a powerout disconnected the players but _not_ the specs) the game automatically pauses until the players are reconnected and someone (players or admin of the game) resumes the game.
          Maybe that explains it better.

            As seen now at Beyond the Summit the Admin of a game (e.g. the first Broadcaster slot) should also be able to kick people, who might be not invited but still get in game and spam.

              Works well and wouldn't hurt. +1 if enabled in lobby options.

                Agree, would be nice if the game"owner" could direct who's Admin or not via dropdown menu in the lobby.
