    global announcer - suggestion - dev only

    hey everyone,

    i'd like to suggest a feature called global announcer.
    It is restricted for devs only and uses a signal colour like red that isnt reproducable by normal users.
    Developers can give easy and quick updates to all the users ingame or in the lobby.

    some examples:

    /announce We are currently working on this or that, the feature might not work while we fix issues.
    /announce Matchmaking is taken down for a quick update.
    /announce We are currently applying the patch, in order to play again, restart the client.

    You can pretty much notify the users live while updating something or taking something down for a brief period.
