Being able to promote

Should have the ability to promote somebody else in the party to the party leader, in case the original leader has to go do something for a while and would like someone else in control of the party.

    If the party leader leaves the party, it should automatically make the player who was in the longest the new party leader. The option to hand party leader over to another player of our choice before leaving would be helpful as well.

    This is something that would help preserve the party should something happen and the original leader have to leave the group.

    I've been in a situation as to where I would start a party chat but then after a while I would want to leave and others in the party would like to stay in it while I'm gone. So can we have the ability so that when in a situation like this the party leader can from within the party highlight another gamer and hit the menu button on the controller and make one of the other gamers party leader? Instead of having someone from the group start up a new party and invite others all over again.

    Pretty self-explainatory. You should be able to make someone else in the party the leader instead of everyone leaving until the person-to-be-leader is the longest member of the party. Or making them start a new party.

    The reason is if your conection is not so good you can give the host party to other to be more stable and not start kicking people because have bad network connection

    This is a good Idea lol

    It would be awesome if we could transfer leadership to someone else in the party if the current leader has to go do something or doesn't want to be the leader anymore! Vote for this post so it get's noticed!

    Actually, this feature is NOT in the 1409 update. Now there will be a party leader, but there is no way to make someone else the party leader. I am surprised this isn't an option in there but it should be. If the leader leaves I assume it will auto assign a new person as the leader and instead you should be able to manually change it. I am all for this option.
