Next Patch: The Full Release of Spectator Mode!


Summoners!

We are pleased to announce that we’re closing the books on our Spectator Mode beta and moving into our full release. In the coming patch, we’re rolling out some exciting new features that will bring your experience spectating games to the next level. In the full release of Spectator Mode you’ll be able to jump to specific points in the action with Timeshift controls, allow the computer to control your perspective through Directed Camera, and spectate your friends’ games that are already in progress. You can even watch top players by selecting from a number of Featured Games pre-selected for you on the PvP.net landing page.

For a full rundown of the new features available in the full release of Spectator Mode, take a look at the video below.


Spectate Your Friends

In the full release of Spectator Mode you’ll now have the option to drop in and watch a friend’s game that’s currently underway. To select this option, simply right click on their nameplate in your Friends List, and select the “Spectate Game” option to begin watching. You will immediately join the selected game with the standard, three-minute delay already factored in. There’s no limit on how many players are allowed to observe a friend’s game in this manner.

Featured Games

Interested in watching a few matches featuring players at the very top of League of Legends? When you load the client, you’ll now have a list of live Featured Games that you can view. These games showcase some of the best players that League of Legends has to offer, so be sure to check them out any time you’re interested in viewing some high-level play. There is no limit on how many players can observe a featured game.

Timeshift Controls

We know how frustrating missing an important moment while viewing a heated battle on the Fields of Justice can be. So to prevent you from ever missing a beat, we’ve added the Timeshift controls to Spectator Mode. Through Timeshift you can rewind, slow down, or even pause the live game you’re observing to take in all the action at your own pace. Once you’re done, you can fast forward or jump ahead to catch back up with the progress of the match.

Directed Camera

By engaging Directed Camera mode you can allow the computer to guide your perspective, automatically selecting the most interesting action on the field. While this mode is engaged, the computer will analyze everything that is currently happening in the game and select the most significant event, whether it’s First Blood, a team fight or a baron attempt. You can even select a specific player that you’d like the Directed Camera to focus on, or jump to another event by pressing the space bar.



I'm being all helpful and such lately, is this not insane?? :O
Feel free to edit this one as well, just wanted to let everyone know :P

Yeah I know, wasn't trying to rip you off, or one up you or anything, it's just that you must have posted yours while I was making mine, and I didn't see. :/

Should I just take this down?

Nah, mine is less informative, more inquisitive. I'll see if I can take mine down.

How do you like preview? Is it all you wanted? Do you want more or less? What part of spec mode made you most interested?

It wasn't your decision :) I don't feel bad anyways.

Honestly, I'm not that excited, because it'll probably take me 5 minutes or so to even get into a game. It'd be cooler if my cpu didn't suck, and I could just drop in like they're saying.

It does seem cool, and it's an awesome feature, I'm just unsure if I'll be able to properly use it
