need a better way to alert players when a game has ended

i just played a game where someone didn't notice the last game ended

shouldn't happen ever again

make many many many many different ways of notifying a player that the game has ended

examples:

play loud sounds repeatedly
play not so loud sounds repeatedly
multiple popups and flashing taskbar
open a webpage saying the game has ended


make them optional but set to default on...

Is the problem afk players?

Generally I'd suggest moving to MatchMaker for a better system. IMO battles should always be initiated by the players themselves, not them having somebody else to vote start for them.

Triggering a segfault which causes windows to crash and reboot?

Mining Zzzz-k Coin so their computer grinds to a halt? If they didn't notice game ended, why would they notice CPU cycles being consumed?

In the old Lobby notifications were loud enough,
it was ths windows ping.

But now it is too quiet.

... and the old lobby had a "notification-bubble-overlay". I hope you understand what I meant.
Like a message-bubble coming from the right bottom of the taskbar.
