WOULD YOU LIKE AN ICON TO SHOW WHO IS HOST?

Please post here if you think the host of a lobby should be marked with an icon.

 

To be honest, every single person should respond with yes, simply because it's no secret anyway, you can find out by quitting or sometimes by a combination of factors, so being able to to see by virtue of an icon is simply being "honest and forward" about it.

 

And in advance of someone saying:

 

"No, screw that, there will be no end to host migrations as people quit out when they realise they are host and this will happen for the entire match",

 

I reply:

 

Then what you are implying is that the game (or each match) depends upon a succession of people NOT KNOWING they are disadvantaged for a period until they realise and the lack of realisation is passed on to the next person OR the game depends upon someone suffering for the sake of the entire lobby.

 

This is wrong. Delaying the truth here to patchwork some shoddy matchmaking/host lag compensation development issues is not a solution. It barely works anyway.
