    This is a short thread with a minor suggestion:
    I'd like to be able to spectate friends/other players with a request-type command like:
    /spectate Gainfullterror - /spectatedeny or /spectateaccept

    This would be fun for most of the minigames that are PVP based.

    I think this would be amazing, but the more-known players would be spammed with it. So +0,5

    Is this for FFA and assassins? If so, please add this because I'm tired of running around the entire map looking for hackers.

    If you mean spectating someone that is in-game. Then no.

    Because if you're friend is in-game and you aren't. You can send a spectate request to him and you can say to him where the oppenents are.
    I only see this added into FFA and Assassination.

    If the spectators would be completely invisible, I don't think there should be a request to spectate your friend or someone random.
    Imagine: Joehenry is playing FFA and I would like to spectate him. I send a request, but he denies it. ( :eek: ) Now, I send a request to someone else in the same game. He accepts it and I fly to Joehenry.
    So what I would like to say is that you could easily spectate someone even though he denied your request.

    I like this idea for pvp duels. It would be cool to ba able to spectate fights between other players (and also catch hackers off guard).
    */SpectateDeny (I had to do this as gainfullterror has a grammar nazi skin)

    Edit : as of the 20th of july ; thread locked as to avoid necro-posting

    I feel like this could be sort of abused for Assassins. You could feed information to a friend of other players' locations, etc. However, I think it would be useful for Duels, as the games are short, and the maps are so small information like the other player's location is not useful, because you can see them the whole time. So -1 for the main idea, but +1 if it used for Duels only. And typing /spectatedeny or /spectateaccept in a duel is very inconvenient. Maybe another system? You could possibly just click a "Here" in chat, or you just automatically get spectated and not have a yes or no option (this is only suggested because spectating doesn't alter gameplay imo)

    +1 for me
    but maybe make this an iron rank feature so a popular player doesn't get spammed with tps

    Maybe when you are in spectator mode in pvp duels, and a player joins you automatically teleport to the player
