    Hello,
    i'm not sure if someone else might have already suggested this idea or if this would effect game play, but i was hoping we could have Spectating in Survival games. Mostly i want this because when i die, i want to watch my friends to see how they are doing and see people battle. it gets a little boreing in the lobby when you die and you're waiting for someone else. The parkour that you put there is a great way to pass time, but for some people who dont do parkour that much, it could get a little boreing. This is just my oppinion, and i know that there are already lots of things being implimented. but this was just an idea. ~peat53

    I agree as well, sometimes I see hackers but I can't report them because I'm stuck in that lobby. So they get away with hacking.

    Should it be the dev @rubik_cube_man ?

    Anyways...Its always a bit awkword when ur in the maps lobby and you cant see anything in the death match...xD...So ya it would be fun to have spectating...but rubik told me that coding the spectating is very hard and that adding specating would take time...Vote Yes of course

    Why do you care?
    I would obviously love spectation to be added but it can be used to tell where other players are which I think can be a little unfair. Im all for it and everything its just if spectating is added, their should be a spectator chat after like 1 minute of you dying. Like if you get killed, 1 minute later you are part of the spectator chat. The reason for 1 minute after is because then you can communicate lobby numbers or "gg" or anything else right after you die.

    I 100% agree, Its really annoying when you get killed by a hacker and you can't record them, Its a feature I would like to see in the future :)

    Spectating would be great :)
    Especially when u wait for the people you play with. It gets really boring when you have to wait in lobby ;)

    When I wait, I do the parkour once. Then what do I do? Nothing.

    It would be good if we could spectate because most times, I get bored and leave my friends :/

    Although it coming out on Tuesday, it will take probably until the weekend to update servers to 1.8. Maybe by then they can have coding done for spectating :/
    Just to clarify for you, Morgan :3

    I believe they are wait for the new 1.8 update to spectate cause people can just enter gm 3 to spectate.

    We'll I mean it would be harder to code the spectating in than updating the server.
