If you click non-stop while you are dead and in spectator mode... You will advance into the enemies spectator modes.... This works for both sides. I know this might just be temporary(spec mode that is), but I noticed that I can watch my friendlies attack my opponent's portal.... That just doesn't seem quite right...

The thing is... I don't find spectator mode useful. Hopefully when there's more people in the game, there will be something to actually "spectate" about. As I said before, most or nearly all the times I'm in spectator mode, there's nothing to see.
I just find the restrictions too much. Of course, you (Hap) said we'll understand in the future why this is so. I can see people in the future switching teams just to see some action out of sheer boredom (if, for example, nobody is talking much due to the intensity of the game or lack of other spectators)
Yeah, its not the greatest right now, but its still a bug none-the-less, and so that people pay attention to bugs rather than watching where the enemies are hiding.. I had to tell Hap about it.
With the new Agility sneak rules (I just posted about it, see the Balance forum) it is really a big deal people don't snuff out other players.
In other FPS, most maps are small and there are x number of hiding spots.
In Purge, we got good sized WAR maps with no fixed choke-points. So being a sneaker is a legitimate play style (unlike 99.9% of online FPSes).
