Spectate games mode

Post by ollie444 » Sat Mar 07, 2015 7:58 am

Could it be possible to add a spectate mode, where you can just look at a match? I am saying this because of the upcoming Tournament, and it would be cool to spectate on the final. I am saying this for the benefit of others, because I'll obviously get in the final... And win.

Yes this is cool.
How would it work for fog maps?
Thanks!

Good point... There could be some cheeky cheating...

Maybe it is only available for reveal maps.
Currently the inter-league games rules must have it on reveal, so that would work.
Thanks!

That's a great idea. Besides what good are the finals if others can't watch :D

Maybe we can add a kibbitz function where the player who wants to show the game off, has to invite someone to watch the game. The invited someone only can see what the player can see. So if there is fog, the invited someone can only see the areas controlled by their invitor.

In the main menu, we could add a games area for invited games so that the invited player can find the game easily.
Anything is feasible with enough money and power.

Get ready to get your teeth kicked in, it will make for a good education.

For the record, Ollie is so humble. :lol:

No, but really, this is a fantastic idea, especially for people like me who didnt sign up in time, we can still get to watch the action :)

The "spectator mode"

Post by Lastner » Sat Aug 01, 2015 6:42 pm

Hello,
I'm Lastner and I play one month at this game and I love it. I'm not ready for play in PvP so I would learn by watching others playing.
So I think creat the "spectator mode" can be very instructive and entertaining.

Ps: Sorry if my English is horrible, I speak French and I try to learn English during my holidays.

Good idea - I still support it. :)

P.S. the best way to get better is just to do it. ;) Just play, and if you get your end kicked (as I do) then you learned something. Playing against the AI is nothing like PvP.
Also, open topics on the forum to discuss strategies, and ask experienced players. :) Ask http://www.ageofstrategy.net/memberlist ... file&u=388 (Alex486) he's really good.
Thanks!
Josh
