    Hide game length/progress bar to avoid spoiler just like Starcraft 2?

    A 5 year veteran of Dota here. I love how Dota 2 has amazing interface for spectating & replays. They surpass SC2 in every way.

    But there is one thing that bothers me. The game length generally spoils when the game will end/who will win/push timing. This was an issue in SC2 as well. After lots of people suggested for change, Blizzard wisely made the right adjustment: It hides total length and progress bar by default and only shows the current game timer. One press of a button, all progress shows. Just perfect.

    Dota 2 needs to do this. I know you can still hide it now, but that hides the whole top right controls and you still get spoiler.

    Please consider and implement. Should be super easy to implement.. 30 mins of coding?

    Zero reason why anyone wouldn't like this.

    Already lots of suggestions implemented to avoid spoiling the victor of matches. This one is a nice addition.

    Please, put in an option to allow people to opt in/out, I really dislike that all the spoiler features added are forced upon the entire player base.

    I don't really care about the length spoiler, but since we live in a community and I see no downside to this change.
