Typing "14" in chat should blink the taskbar game icon for lobby games

Hosting a game in lobby requires actively checking every now and then for players joining, while in ranked queue one can just alt+tab and wait for taskbar alert when a game is found

This is very tiresome as the lobby games especially take a bit longer to fill up. It would be great if there is a way to notify a host that the lobby is full and players are ready. So one can just create the lobby game and wait for the alert while alt+tabbed

The suggestion is, when players type “14” everyone is alerted via the blinking taskbar game icon just like what happens in ranked queue

This would be a very simple and helpful addition to the lobby system

It will be simple yet effective change. Excellent suggestion!

Add subway surfers and family guy funny moments to the lobby so zoomers don’t have to tab out immediately to keep their brains from accidentally having a thought.

How about having an attention span longer than 2 seconds?

a nice feature request indeed not sure if it can be done really

How about having an attention span longer than 2 seconds?

It takes time for the lobbys to fill up, this isnt 1-2 mins like ranked, is more than 10-20 mins sometimes, there is no reason to just watch the lobby doing nothing all that time.

How about telling us how it will be detrimental to the game? If it is not, then shut up.

I created a similar topic 4 years ago here and nothing happened, I hope the devs would consider this at some point
