Spectating Games Question

I've got a question for the audience regarding watching an active game.

I'm implementing the functionality for AngbandOS and the ability for others to watch your (or you watch someone else) play your/their game.

As the player, playing the game, would you want the ability to turn off (make private) the game you are currently playing so that others cannot watch your game? Or should the game always be public?

Thanks
Iggy

I would think there should always be the option to make it private or restricted.

(I also think there’s not much of an audience for watching someone play angband, and anyone who wants to can stream on twitch.)

People seem to watch and cheer each other on on Angband live.

Are we saying that the angband.live spectating is dead? My goals for Angband.OS should open a lot of new avenues for new ideas. Head to head Competitions, daily challenges, things you find in freemium mobile games.

Its never bad to make it an option; it might be too much workload for the benefits, but thats for you to decide.
