#3547 closed defect (duplicate)

Description (last modified by elexis)

Rated games should not allow the developers overlay. For example you can change the perspective to your enemy and delete all units or click on control-all-units and do the same.


  1. Alice starts a rated game in the lobby
  2. Bob joins the game
  3. The game starts
  4. Bob disconnects
  5. Bob leaves the lobby
  6. Bob clicks on multiplayer -> Join -> Connect

Bob has rejoined the game, can now open the developers overlay and loot the rating.

Reportedly there is also a similar persist-match-settings bug:

1. Alice hosts a rated game in the lobby 2. Bob joins that game from the lobby 3. The game starts 4. Bob leaves the game 5. Bob starts a non-lobbied game with ratings disabled and ends it 6. Bob returns to the lobby, rejoins the rated game and can now open the developers overlay. (could not reproduce this alleged bug)
