Spectator Mode

Postby JacksonVirgo » Sat Oct 05, 2019 3:03 pm

Not sure if this has been suggested before but I would personally love it for a spectator mode to be added to the game for multiple reasons. One of those reasons is that streamers can stream the spectator form of the game so that nobody can cheat and/or stream snipe which could actually make the game way more streamable and in extension, may expand the games player base which I feel is a good investment and I don't think it would require too much to implement.

What Should Be Shown
In order to eliminate/minimise cheating using this mode, all spectators will not be able to see anything that only certain players can see such as a living persons role/will/death note, any night chat (perhaps excluding death chat) as well as whispers. However, spectators will be able to see the following.
  • Graveyard (in extension, Last Wills and Death Notes)
  • Main Chat
  • Player List
  • Role List

Interactability would possible make it fun even for the spectators in the game, this could mean adding a spectator chat for all spectators to talk, adding a possible way to predict the next days kill/lynch and gain merit points if correct or even allowing each spectator to guess the winning faction before D2 ends and gain merit points if correct. Allowing spectators to taunt would be a possibility, however it's smarter for spectators to have no way to influence the game at all, even at a small scale.

Other Notes
I was thinking that if this was implemented, the streamers can stream the spectator mode instead of their game and will not allow as easily cheating and would not require the streamer to have black boxes or images obstructing information and would in extension make the whole stream more enjoyable and may invite people to purchase and play the game or just increase the enjoyment out of the game in general.

Let me know how you feel about this, thanks for your time.

If this is added, spectators should not have access to dead chat, since that would allow non-public information to be leaked. It should go without saying that they should not be allowed to taunt players.
