Insomnia Anti-spectate

Unread postby Robomoo » 06 Oct 2017 21:08

This is a mod I made that replaces the spectate option with a link that sends players to our Twitch channel, to watch the rest of the event there. This saves some server power in all our events, and it is also helpful in combatting cheating in FFAs, where spectators who are in the same voice channel with their friends give them essentially perfect vision after they are dead. If the player doesn't disconnect on his own, the mod kicks him in 60 seconds.

Very useful with our server when we finish a game and want to start another one and have to wait half an hour for people to stop reviewing and give it back to us, or saving us from messaging them between League games to disconnect so we can hold the second game. With this mod you KNOW that you are getting your server back one minute after the end of the game, and can plan accordingly.

And the more players in a lobby, the more useful the mod becomes. You might not need it for 2v2s, but by the time you are holding 30-player Clan Wars or 50-player FFAs, as we hope to be doing eventually, it will be essential.

The Twitch button sends you to the Insomnia channel, but obviously people can change the link as needed for their own events.

60 seconds is more than enough time to screenshot all the stats pages if you really want to look at them for longer.

Another thing is that you won't be able to say gg etc. after you are dead. So say your ggs before your comm pops (or before your last comm pops, in the events with shared teams), and don't think that people are being rude if they abruptly disconnect without saying anything.

Everyone will just have to get used to this.

You can actually say gg within the 60 second period. We just tested it. Just hit shift+enter and type in the chat as normal.
