I heard that more threads asking for spectator mode might result in spectator mode.

This is a thread asking for spectator mode. The APL tournament has shown that there IS a lot of interest in the game. I am willing to wager that a lot of people would like this, and it would help the competitive scene a great deal.

Already exists, next thread.

But seriously, it'd be awesome to see a spectator mode in this game, since it's the kind of game that'd benefit from it, that and replays.

Hate to burst your bubble, but they said basically it's at the bottom of the list. Yeah they want to do it, but it's a huge pain the but to code since it wont work it out with P2P. So they would have to spend about 3 months changing their entire netcode to servers, add servers and then spend another month or so coding a spectator mode. So that's 4 months of work that they would have to do just to add a spectator mode (Yes it actually does take that long) so these threads asking for spectator mode just fall on deaf ears. I'm sorry to say, but that's how it is.

Ronimo... just saying... I'll get you a good bag of weed (not a big one!) if you give us spectator mode ;)

Just wondering: what would you expect from a Spectator mode exactly? Would a mode that only allows spectators who are invited by the host be good enough, or do you feel only infinite public spectatoring would do the trick?

And how much of a problem would it be if every spectator would cost the host extra bandwidth (just as if there were a sixth player)?

(Not promising anything here, just trying to get a grasp of what you guys actually want.)

I think ideally we'd like infinite spectators, but honestly a great start would be spectators invited by the host - it'd make things like covering the APL even easier.

Given that there aren't dedicated servers, I understand the problem with infinite spectators. But like I said, invite only spectators would be an awesome addition.
