  • [Suggestion] Show Players Number of Spectators Watching

    I personally get a little thrill out of knowing that people are spectating my games and it drives me to give a game my all. I was thinking it would be cool to have an option that enables you to see how many players are currently watching the game you're in. In addition, you could show how many of the spectators are on your friends list. So it could show "20 (2)" for example, meaning your game has 20 spectators and 2 are on your friends list. I don't see any downsides to sharing this information, other than maybe causing players to choke under pressure if they knew they had an audience. But as I said, this would be optional so players could hide it if they either didn't want to know or just don't care.

    This is supposed to be an e-sport after all, and in sports you always get to see how many people are watching you.
