  • [Suggestion] Comentators and camera

    It has it downsides but also, if added as an option, can turn out to be something pretty useful.

    Basically, the idea is that whenever a commentator starts talking that the controlled camera jumps to him.

    So let's say one commentator is seeing first blood and immediately speaks up, even though he interrupts his co-caster watching net worth and checking ward placement. The camera should automatically go to his control.

    Do you think it has any usability?

    I think it would misbehave a lot.

    I would rather see if they improved the directed camera more instead.
    For example when nothing is happening, look at what the commentator is looking (not changing the control to him, but basically look at the same places that the commentator is looking at), and whenever there's action change the view to there. The problem with the directed camera right now is that it looks at a lot of useless stuff when nothing is happening. This might be a good fix to it.
