  • [BUG] Spectating a friend's Live game I can see everything

    I had a friend playing a game and so I thought I'd go spectate. But the funny thing was I could see where all the other players on the enemy team were, couldn't I just skype him and tell him where they were? That's a bit stupid I think. There should either be a delay on watching live games, or you should only be able to see from the perspective of the person you're spectating. Otherwise, there's too much room for cheating. I know tournament games probably have a delay and that's good but it would be kinda annoying if I had to spectate my friend with a 6 minute delay, so I think it would be better if I could only see his perspective.

    Not a bug, there is a delay.


    • #3
      Yeah there is a delay


      • #4
        How long of a delay?


        • #5
          2 minutes if they didn't change it.
          So at most you can tell him where wards are situated

            The issue is if your friend pauses for 2 minutes, then suddenly all players / wards are in their exact position for you, at least until he unpauses
