Can not move to spectator in FFA

Postby SylvieLorxu » 03 Nov 2014 13:33

In FFA, the team selection box pops up the message "there are no teams you can join", making it impossible to switch to spectator.

Noticed on duel-ffa.

Can you push your Home key? That's how I usually switch to spectator.

I have no clue that was possible. I think I'll still leave this here because it's inconsistent with team-based matches, but thanks for that.

Ah, we all learn something every day. I'm so used to doing everything on the console (/spectator 1), I didnt know there was a bind for that.

Anyways, Yeah, I think the GUI should allow spectator to stay consistent. Especially with spectators now in their own "team" on the scoreboard.

essentially there is both a command and a bind for spectating. i for one didn't even realize it ever appeared in the team-switch GUI. i've always used the default bind, home key. aside from that though, it appears for me within the team-switch GUI in FFA-duel deathmatch and any other mode, so this is not a real issue.
For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. For every freedom, there is a new limit. For every joy, a new sorrow. For every act of kindness, an unspeakable cruelty. Where someone succeeds, someone else fails. A new association means a new separation. Loyalty meets treachery, honor breeds disgrace, free expression yields censorship. Each piece of knowledge forms new ignorance. Even death gives rise to new life. But the balance of existence is the beginning of wisdom and discernment.

You obviously didn't see it, or you were already in spectator, because "spectate" was already there. That being said, I added "unspectate" to the team dialog.
