  • Camera Option for Directed Camera

    There is one feature I find is missing in the spectetor mode for both replays and live games.

    Basically when in directed mode the camera follows the action around automatically. However when in the mode sometimes you want to look at a specific part of the map, but you don't want to go into free cam mode.

    My suggestion is that when you click and hold on the minimap (as if you are trying to position the camera there) the camera will move to the location you are clicking on on the minimap. When you release your mouse button the camera should return immediately to directed camera mode. This would add much more control to how you view the games you are watching, allowing you to both watch the game in directed mode AND be able to glance at points of interest you want to look at breifly.
