So how's observer mode?


#1

Didn’t find a chance to try out the new patch.

Is there a first person view option while observing hunters?


#2

Nobody want to answer? :slight_smile:


#3

@BlackAegis may be able to help you. He and some people were messing around with it yesterday.


#4

I can’t even find observer mode! :smiley:


#5

At the moment it’s only in custom games.


#6

I was searching for a game and got put in observer mode. Strangely, when I left (because I wanted to play), I got put on that 60 second probation before being able to search for a game


#7

I just spent the past few hours live with some games.

You can only spectate in third person.
It’s only in private matches.
@chittyshwimp’s is a bug, not the actual mode.


#8

Hmm that’s strange I was in matchmaking when I got put into a spectator spot


#9

Did it give you the fancy health UI on the right of your screen?


#10

Yes, it had all the health bars, probability of which side would win (super cool feature imo), options to hide hud, etc.


#11

Huh. That’s definitely a bug and should probably be posted over into the bugs section of these forums.


#12

I made a thread about it in feedback


#13

It’s a bug, not feedback…


#14

Didn’t realize it was a bug at the time;I was put in the 60 second probation for leaving, and put it in the feedback section because I was suggesting not putting observers on probation.


#15

Yeah, observer mode is only supposed to be in private matches.
