Suggestion about spectating
« on: November 09, 2011, 12:32:45 AM »
Have you guys ever thought of allowing only team spec when a player dies? It kinda sucks when you find a good spot, but when you kill another player they will know where you're hiding.

I kinda like the way it is. I ahve seen several players in spots impossible to get to other than through cheating and have turned in a couple with screenshots. I will agree though that it can be anoying when I find a killer spot and then get owned, but isn't that in the fun??

I personally don't like it because when I'm an engie on a PL map, I sometimes like to build behind BLU's spawn but I can't do this anymore since anybody can find out where my teleporter/base is.

I agree, i would like to see this disabled.  Even tho we know they can go spectate and come back into game that takes longer than flipping thru players while waiting respawn.  Its one of those things that if the person going thru players gets lucky and spots a spy for example right outside the spawn then as soon as they respawn ( probably 10 secs after) they know where exactly to head to, different from somebody getting into spectator then waiting for respawn (probably longer than 20 secs if not more) then heading over there chances are whoever was there is already gone.  Thats how i see it at least.

We've been a bit silent on this issue, because we never really considered it a problem. For example, I know some players like to spectate the other team because they think someone is hacking or exploiting.

I do understand that it reveals spies and snipers. I don't mind disabling that feature as it seems the majority is for turning it off.

I just want to wait a day or two, to let everybody voice their opinions on this issue. Then, we can turn it off, and see how people react. As usual, nothing is set in stone, so we can try disabling it, and then turning it back on again later if the majority doesn't approve.

To be quite honest, I don't think I've ever played on a server that had it enabled before here...

I don't think I've seen it in action before.

I would vote for team only spec. Already I've seen spies on the other team cloaking or disguising -- and had a very good idea where I should be looking for them.

Please! Make it so its Team only.  I personally find it very frustrating.

I'll talk to the others about it, since you guys want it we'll see what we can do.

Team spectating only has been enabled on both servers. Players can still join the Spectator team however.
This is only a trial. If the feedback is negative (from players and admins), we'll revert the change.

Was it reverted back to spec all again?
