A Custom Server Suggestion: Passwords

General Discussion
Allow passworded servers.

I know a Twitch streamer that wants to make his own game modes and spectate while his viewerbase plays. He'd post the password in his Discord.

..But this does not seem possible as it is :( Only public, invite, and friends only.

Why not passwords?
We're open to this idea. Hopefully we can add it in the future.

One thing we did to help streamers was allow for party and custom game invites via BattleTag. It's not quite as easy as posting a single password. But it allows them to play games or party with their subs without having to friend them through battle.net. Hopefully this helps in the meantime until we have more time to implement a password system.
Cool! Thanks for the reply, Jeff! :)

Invitation via Battletag is very buggy though.
A lot of the times, the game would say the player is offline and cannot be invited
Even when the player IS online.
Battletag invite is about as good as Nintendo's friend code idea.

Glad to see the improvements going forward.
