you get auto-specced because you were doing literally anything fucking else other than stare at lobby for 30 secs

1 player still afk at start of match

How exactly am I supposed to wait for a match to finish? No warning, no way to disable, you just get fucking specced. I have missed countless, COUNTLESS matches due to this ineffective system. Could you at least make a sound before I'm about to be specced? Probe I'm still alive? It is so fucking bad, at least give us a way to disable. I can't stare at screen for 40 minutes waving my mouse to get in match. I got shit to do

There is a notification sound when the vote to start the game is occurring, but all that tells you is that the game is about to begin. Also the resign vote makes a notification sound, so you can tell that the game is ending (or possibly ending)
I am fairly confident you can use that to know when to make sure you're still in the game although it still suffers the fault of 'afked and cannot rejoin since 32 players'

I think the solution to that is an abort on starting when someone newly joins (within reason, perhaps with per-person cooldown). Defaulting to spectating seems like bad UI. I expect a lot of people would be caught out by it at least once.

Maybe not full abort, but a few seconds pause so the person has the time to click to spec.

Ctrl-click to join as spectator?

I also got caught by this system few times... 10 seconds before start and the countdown goes. Somebody writes !specafk command and a couple of seconds before launch I move into observers.

Ctrl-click to join as player?

There is always network latency

Maybe best solution would be a popup before joining and a little explanation, tooltip, what happens on both choices ( for newplayers)

The !notify sound is really not loud enough on my computer, and it's apparently not affected by sound cursors. I don't bother with Notify anymore because I never hear it.

Maybe making these sound louder could help.

What a about a popup when you joined the room...

"Wanna play now or spectate" - so you have a bit of time to see whats going on who is there and what map and the decide if you want to join in.
