  • Player Perspective and Directed Player Perspective Feedback / Bugs

    Using player perspective has been one of the ways I enjoy most to watch live games. The directed player perspective has also been great too. Below is a list of suggestions and bugs I've run in to while using both.

    Suggestions
    • As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to show the selection box when the player being observed box selects units.
    • As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to show when the player micros a unit other than their man hero. Currently the focus stays on the hero instead of switching to the other unit when the player uses their control groups to select them. (Note: When the player being observed left clicks on a creep/hero/etc. the focus changes but not when they use hotkey for control group) Example: When Lone Druid is microing his bear, Lone Druid is still shown as selected in player perspective.
    • As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to allow the same options for fog as in free and directed camera.
    • As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to allow the observer to see invis/smoked enemies on the minimap while in player perspective (currently enemy heroes do not show up on the minimap if they are smoked or invis).
    • As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to show health bars under portraits of all heroes on the top (as it is in directed camera and free camera).
    • As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to show when hovering over items in the players inventory, how much gold the item costs (currently no camera mode does this).
    • As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to allow selection of other units while viewing player perspective as you can do in directed mode (right click to reset selection as in directed as well)
    • As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to have an option to see control groups of player.
    • As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to show shortcut item build the player is using. Currently shows the item build that the observer has selected for that specific hero.
    • 2013-10-23 - As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to allow spectators to look through the shop while in player perspective.
    • 2013-10-23 - As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to allow spectators to right click items and select show in shop while in player perspective (like you can in free camera and directed camera)
    • 2013-11-23 - As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to have a set of hotkeys that can be used to switch between players. Example: 1 = Blue, 2 = Teal, 3 = Purple, 4 = Yellow, 5 = Orange, 6 = Pink, 7 = Gold, 8 = Light Blue, 9 = Green, 0 = Brown
    • 2013-11-23 - As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to see enemy players mana bars under their HP bars as in directed and free cameras.
    • 2013-11-28 - As a spectator viewing in player perspective, it would be beneficial to have an option to see the same 'killed by' pop up when a player is dead to see the recent damage sources that killed them.
    Bugs
    • Vision isn’t shown of spells such as Track and Charge of Darkness
    Directed Player Perspective Specific
    • Keep green for radiant and red for dire while switching between different player perspectives. In the current format, every time it switches player perspective to the opposite team the colors switch and can be confusing in team fights
    Any more suggestions or bugs are welcome to add to this post. Thanks.

    Added suggestions and Fixes
    • 2013-10-23 Player perspective lag when switching players has been fixed! There are slight stutters (very very small) the first time you view a player but after that the transitions are smooth again.
    • 2013-11-20 Three Spirit Update: Can now see players quickbuy! Thanks!

    "There was a lot of lag when switching between player perspectives after the First Blood patch. It was not watchable in its current state. The game freezes as it is switching between players."

      Yeah it is really bad right now. Directed player perspective and player perspective are currently unwatchable because of this. If a dev or someone could respond and tell me any additional information I should give them (PC specs or console logs, etc.) please let me know so I try to help get this resolved.

        +1 I made a thread about the lags without seeing yours mentioning it alrteady. All suggestions are awesome. I hope a dev reads about it.

              With the 6.79 update on the test client, player perspective switching is not lagging anymore. Hopefully when they port this over to the main client, this player perspective lagging will be fixed

                Okay well main client still lags when switching Player Perspectives even after 6.79 but the test client does not. Bump hoping for at least an acknowledgement that this is a known issue or being worked on.

                  Okay after these small patches player perspective seems to have been fixed a very good amount (thank you!). The audio and video still stutter a small bit the first time you look at a specific player but any other time you go back in the match you are viewing, it is very smooth as it was before the First Blood patch. Thanks Valve!

                  EDIT: Actually it is pretty much fixed completely. Not even that much lag on the first view now either.

                      yes the minimap colors all being green for both teams is so stupid

                      it should always identify green/red or the individual colors

                      i hope they fix it

                            Bump in hopes of getting some more player perspective features before TI4. I can dream.
