When I'm in spectator, I don't care about following air defense fighters. But yet I have to click 40 times to find a human or even a bot pilot on my team.


Can't there be a way to prioritize it so that air defense fighters come last in the list instead of first?


Or even better, can't I just click on someone's name, or on the minimap to follow them?

Just return spectator mode to what 1.9 had...:facepalm:

WoWP makes a great jousting game...especially with the 262 and people busy in furballs...
I am deaf, silent, and fly with unrealistic controls. Do not count on me to carry - my back's already broken from overweight.

How many times did the weird spectate cam view bug(s) happen, get fixed, get reintroduced...maybe that's why there's no right click zoom function?  Too many issues...waiting for the no textures, flying below sea level bug to come back.  Good times...

Agree with the OP: Spectator view can do with a good bit of improving.


Currently spectates one of the live players then sequentially through Defense fighters.

Should first spectate highest scoring live player, then 2nd & sequentially down.

Option to turn camera relative to the plane would be nice.


Also frequently gets stuck, have to click repeatedly before it gets round to switching to a new plane. (is there a keyboard button I can do instead?)

C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

Yeah, change the spectator mode. I don't like it at all.  You should be able to spectate like in World of Tanks. Also, give us the option to skip the kill cam. I really don't care who killed me. When I am respawning I find that is the only time you can type messages to allies.
