  • Auto-spectating in Practice Mode

    I realise that in practice mode, if you join a lobby, it automatically considers you as a spectator if you do not choose to join as a player or a commentator.

    The Problem:
    When you are joining lobbies looking for games, and you joined 1 that is full and coincidentally it starts a few seconds after you joined, you have to wait for the game to load before you can quit.

    The Suggestion:
    Add a spectate button in the lobby.

    This is also apparent when creating new practice- lobbies. You're automatically assigned to a spectator slot, instead of the player- slots. I feel like this should be vice-versa.

    It's a very minor issue in the end. But it would be a nice quality of life- change.

      This is a major issue in my opinion. I just got into beta ytd, and this happened twice in just one day. Its really annoying cos you have to wait around 3min+ before the game is fully loaded before you can quit.
