[Stadia][multiplayer] Host stays host if someone leaves without a clean exit

Recommended Posts

 

I know, it’s an Stadia issue, that if someone loses its connection or closes the browser, the session will stay for some minutes, so he can switch the device or come back when the internet connection recovers.

But the is one issue with this and the one being the host of a multiplayer session. He stays host even if he isn’t there any more, because stadia is keeping his session. This happens, when the host leaves the session, without a clean exit (shutting down Stadia or the browser window. Most of the players are not aware of that. Often it occurs, that host #1 leaves the session correctly and the host switches to another one, but he is not even aware that he got host, as he already left the session in the quick and dirty way an his session stays there. The consequence is, that all others can’t start the race and won’t wait until the session of the host expires.

Maybe it would be a good idea to release the host, if there wasn’t a input for some time.

As this is based on Stadia infrastructure, it's unlikely we could offer a fix. I will raise this.

The infrastructure is as it is, but the game should deal with the infrastructure.
