  • The ability to automatically watch Dota TV

    I think it would be an awesome idea to implement a small 'Auto Watch' feature into the "Watch" tab (DotaTV). Have it set to automatically leave my current game after ~30 seconds of the post-game screen, and instantly join the next live game with the highest spectator count.

    This is just because I think it would be awesome to have a TV in my home dedicated to playing Dota games all day .

    On top of that, maybe a game monitoring system. You can see the scores and items off all the players in a game while you're in a game, maybe from your friends list or something. Basically Steam's View Game Info option but with more detail on the game the person's in.

      its already implemented
      go to your console and put this in
      dota_spectator_auto_spectate_games 1
      turn to 0 to put off.

            That's great!

              It just grabs the first 10 player match from the watch panel and autojoins it.
