  • Pause Timer

    On more improvement to the pause state, it would be good to have a timer to show the duration of that pause.

    In matchmaking it's usual to say "Let's wait 1 minute until resume" and that timer would help all the players accepting pause better since there is a visual feedback.

    I agree of this. People tend to pause because their teammates get disconnected and a delay on their absence can potentially ruin the game. People just need this timer so they'll know how long they can wait.

    Patience is the issue with people in the game (Particularly in Random Matches, a tweak to stuffs in game like this would improve their gameplay.
