Spectators suck

Postby torq » Sat Dec 23, 2006 4:58 pm

I've found out a new way to spy on enemies. After this I strongly advise not to let spectators joining the game. One person joins as a player while the other one - as a spectator. Spectator sees every unit so he passes the information to the player somehow (telephone, ICQ or something else). This way player receives an advantage over his opponents since he knows everything about their forces, silos locations and other things.

So when hosting a server - set spectators number to zero to avoid this.

good point, i think most people know this, but if you play with people you trust, or at least regulars, then its fine to let them in i think...(somtimes i dont have time to play a game, but i leave it in spec mode myself while i do stuff)

If someone does all that to win a computer game. You should feel ashamed to play with such people.

old old old news. that could be done back in the Quake 1 days. :)

like said above, if you're that desperiate, why play? unless you want to kill the server before you loose even though you're cheating. :D

I could never understand how people enjoy doing that??? I mean if you win do you feel like you really outmanouvered the other player with pure skill??? How can you feel any satisfaction out of that? People are strange I guess.
