I'd love a Mode/Sever where all eliminated players/teamsare brought into a directed spectator mode for the rest of the match, with voice chat and easy muting.
(e.g.anyone muted by x% would be auto muted for all players)
It would be a commitment to play in a match and give the match more weight, less throwaway.
It would the volume of games you can play, so it should increase the point payout.
And add a Salty bet function to bet against you're fellow viewers.
I'm sure that wouldn't work for myriad reasons, but a fun idea.
Gears of War 1 was like this and it was so hype back in the day.
Matches can be anywhere from 30 seconds to 30 minutes depending on how long you survive. What keeps people coming back is that "just one more game" mentality. You can be having an awesome game. You get into the top 5. You get so close to winning.... but maybe you make a stupid mistake and die. You think "next game, I won't make that mistake" and you try again. And again. And again and again and againasfaskdfjalksblblblblblblblblb.
I believe (from what I've read) there was a sizeable army of bot players just farming battle points (in game currency) to purchase loot boxes, to get points to open crates and then sell the items on the steam market place.
