So i didn't hear anyone complaining about lags during the TI2 qualifiers,when 3-4k specs were watching the games.So why the spectators are disabled once again ?

if there are no viewers on the stream, there wont be any dota2 championships.. They need stream viewers because of advertisement.

#1 The reason(more like an excuse) why every game was with disabled spectators option,was that the specs cause lag.That's why i'm telling that.

Cause the players disable them themselves in practice lobbies

Some casters may say that it causes lag but others are honest that they need viewers to support the tournament and ofcourse the casters.
And BTW when u create a private lobby it is by default spectators disabled. I also think thats the reason

#4 Yeah i know that,i mean the tour games,where a person like tuski,holymaster sets up the game.

#5 I got angry at tobi cause he was always saying about that lag thing,but hey,if purge needs help with his stream,i'm here to help him(i already do that).As you mentioned,i want to help the honest ones,not the others.And when spectators were on by default they always remembered to close them ;)

spectators were enabled during qualifications and streamers got a lot of viewers as well....
we should be able to choose between spectating or watching stream, and streamers should be interesting and force me to want to watch their stream... not because i have to....

it was already stated long ago, streamers want money so they disable spectators. it will be nice if valve can implement ads within dotatv
