  • [Suggestion] Team chat when watching live game

    Right now spectators watching a live game are only able to see "all" chat during games and not the individual team chat. This makes the game so quiet especially when watching some professional players. It would be so much more interesting to be seeing what they type and what they say and also learn a few things along the way.

    really bad idea, not only is stream ghosting already a problem with wards being placed, but seeing the peoples strategies as well is a terrible idea.

    example: someone has their friend spectating their game, other team says in team chat "hey, lets gank the woods then go roshan" spectator tells his friend in ventrilo "hey they are gonna gank your jungle then do roshan", next thing you know there entire team is sitting at the roshan entrance with wards and ults ready to blink in and rape.

    I would however like to see the team chat in replays after the game is finished.

          #2 Is right, ghosting is a major issue, especially with competitive gaming.
