View Full Version : Spectating Feasible for Heroes Games?

So I've recently begun to make Heroes III guide and gameplay videos and such for Youtube, and am planning on doing some for HV as well, and the thought occurred to me; is spectating games something that could be feasibly implemented into HVI's multiplayer? It'd be great to be able to watch games of high-level players, even for a bit, as the strategies used would be very insightful, and it'd also be fun to be able to take some video of high-level matches.

Any thoughts on whether this is something that can practically be implemented into Heroes multiplayer, or should be at all? If live spectating is deemed too dangerous due to spying risks or such, having access to replays would be an interesting substitute.

The point is that we even don't know if there will be any "ladder" system, so watching "high level" players playing would be a bit hard since there's no record of their gameplay time.

We will have to wait to see if they have improved that part of the multiplayer mode.

Viewing replays and live games, entering and exiting as a spectator during the game, moving through the replay forwards and backwards, pausing, slowing down and speeding up, all of these options would be nice to have. It would also be nice for allied players to be able to view each other play when they end their turn.
