Put a Timer on Invitations for the Inviter to See

Postby Robert E Nick on Fri Jul 27, 2012 6:33 pm

Suggetion:
Put a timer on when your invites will expire

Details:
I realize the person who was invited to a game can see when it expires, but so should the inviter. When I invite a teammate to a game, it gets annoying not knowing when it is going to expire. There should be a countdown to when your invitation expires so you know when to either re-invite them or find a new teammate.

Example of Usefullness:
I recently had a game where three of my teammates joined, and one missed the invite. A player I do not know then joined the last slot and started the game. This put my team at a disadvantage because he did not read the chat. The timer would help so you know when your invite expires so you don't get stuck with a bad partner :|

P.S. I'm not sure if this is the correct place to put this, if not could someone tell me where? Thanks!

Not a problem. Go lend your support to that suggestion, if you haven't already.

BTW, this seems like something an add-on could do, but afaik it hasn't been created.

if an addon has a way to retrieve the timing. I guess you could save it just before sending the event, but you'd have to be at the same computer to check the time.
