Make Free Spectator Mode a server option



  • Ghosting can really be a problem in LTS / TO scrims.

    Please consider putting an on/off option for servers in the next patch.



  • What is this ghosting you speak of?



  • Server option to kick ghosters after specific amount of time - yes, makes sense.



  • If you mean: Ghost: people inactive in spectator mode, why not just have an autokick on them. We wouldn’t want to kick a person legitimately spectating.



  • Ghosting means spectating a game and feeding information to one of the teams playing, such as the location of the enemy.

    @OP: I’m fairly certain this is already an option, but I don’t know the exact setting.

    Edit: It’s bDisallowFreelookSpectator



  • You can still spectate in first person right? And people on teams can still free-look spectate after death, right?

    gasp Such rudeness! It’s not a huge problem in this game though, since you still have to fight them (you can’t just shoot them in the back).

    Yes.

    Yes.

    Yeah, that’s the issue im worried about in regards to ghosting.



  • Even with spectator mode completely disabled you can freelook spectate by hitting “Return” instead of choosing a class, you just don’t get names of players shown.

    Obviously that doesn’t apply to participants, but sometimes it’s easy to miss a “So-and-so joined the game message in chat” since that’s the only indication that the person is there and could be a dedicated ghoster =p
