    If they lock the fog when you are spectating your friend's game or any game... It can be acceptable...

    If directed camera isn't acceptable due to it's delay, how about letting players in a party decide whether they will coach or not before hitting the matchmaking button? Coaches would physically be connected to the team they're on, yet wouldn't be able to pick a hero.

    Directed should be able to work with no delay. Just teach the AI to notice things. Someone taking damage? look at that. Enemies in proximity to each other? Someone walking in direction of runes? Roaming jungle with one or more enemy mia or nearby? Does someone have an offensive skill/dagger/force staff pressed down and is hovering over or nearby an enemy (over self as well for force staff)? Plenty of other things it can take notice of.

    We already have a developer response asking for more information. That would count as a thought, at least in my book.

    there's going to be a seperate coaching feature. SourceTV(dubbed Dota TV for this games) uses intentional delay for several reasons mainly to keep viewers from informing 1 team about the locations etc of the other team.

    Hell if your restricted with fog or just in a practice game I see no problem with it. My one concern is that I find people on steam have hoards of friends and can potentially have a friend on both sides and give one of them an advantage of they know them in real life. Kind of an unlikely scenario in match making but it's still there.

    You don't want to restrict with fog, the whole pont is that the spectator can see both sides so he can enjoy/learn from the game.
