    So I've been playing H&S a lot today and I've noticed a lot of people quit when they're chosen as seeker. This ends the game for everyone else, making them have to re-choose the game and wait another 40+ seconds in a lobby. I have two suggestions to fix this:

    Allow players to choose to be the seeker. Some people (like myself) enjoy/don't mind being the seeker, so people like that won't ragequit when they have to be the seeker.

    -or-​

    When the seeker leaves, choose a random hider to be the new seeker. It'd be better than the entire game abruptly ending.

    It could work I suppose. You aren't suggesting the ability to select whether or not you can be a hider correct?

    It's like voting for whoever to be the seeker

    Kinda like this. They could maybe add a command to be in a sort of roster for seeker, so if the first seeker leaves, it sets you as the seeker.
    Yes and no. It'd be nice if someone who actually wants to be seeker could elect to be seeker rather than a random person who turns out to hate seeking and ragequits.
