Crysis 3 Players Petition For Spectator Mode
Crysis 3 has yet to be released, but players are already clamoring for the implementation of a Spectator Mode, which is curiously absent from the game. According to an Q&A session with the multiplayer (C3MP) developers a few days ago, Spectator Mode is among the list of missing features in the game.
Much like a few other features, including Theater Mode, the much-requested Spectator Mode did not make the cut due to time constraints. Fans are none too pleased with the development, and have since launched a petition on the game’s official MyCrysis forums to lobby Crytek and the C3MP developers to implement the feature.
For the most part, players want the feature added to simplify online tournaments with the game, and to run live feeds of professional Crysis 3 match-ups.
The creator of the petition schemov writes:
“Dear Crytek developers of Crysis games and Mr. Cevat Yerli,
We are OVER’s, the loyal fans of the Crysis games series and organizers of the international fan-tournaments known as “OPEN Squad Wars” at Crysis 2/3 games. We ask you, Crytek, to add to the Crysis 3 MP the Spectator mode. At least for custom servers only.
The main reasons:
- A worthy judging and the ability to track the games of the tournament participants of the OPEN Squad Wars in order to prevent attempts of unfair play (cheating, hacking, etc.);
- The opportunity to broadcast live streams of the tournament games of the OPEN Squad Wars, without any discomfort for the players;
- Using the Spectator Mode in other Crysis 3 professional matches/events.
We hope for a positive response.
