    this, something like. u only see ur "friend perspective".. if he move the camera to x youll be watching the same so no "maphack" at all.

    This was already discussed long ago and in the end it was essentially agreed upon that this 'single player' spectating system would be part of the coaching system, as previously stated.

    Obviously if you aren't friends with anyone in the team you wouldn't be able to real time spectate, the fuck are you talking about?

    EDIT: Jesus fuck I'm a huge retard, this came up on google search and I didn't realize it's old as hell

    You can easely speak with ur friend and tell him what's going on in the game if he has a 15s delay. Roshan, wards, smokes, tps (enemy's actions)...all that can be avoided in the early game, when the game isnt fast enough.

    NO!

    You should have to set it up with your friend before the game starts. Otherwise, if you had a friend on let's say Radiant side, you could try to "coach" a Dire player and view their team in real time, relaying the information to your friend.

    Well, I would like to the see the option for all practice games. Sort of like we currently have the "allow spectators" check box in the game setup, have an "allow live spectating" check box, defaulted to off. It would show up in the game parameters, and would be pretty obvious to any serious game. Have it be turned off globally for all ranked matches.

    That seems like a good idea. It is a good idea. Sadly there are a few gaps to cover... well, I don't think we can cover them all, anyway. There will always be "connections" that can lead to "maphacking".
