You need major server resources for spectator matches. It would have to be called Arena Mode where you were a spectator in an arena with no ability to enter the battle.
On the flip side, being able to enter a match where one team is at a disadvantage from a missing player or two would be cool.
It's not going to happen though because there is a lot of resources being used just allowed for 8 players in a match along with the environment.
as much as it would be awesome and we could use that tool to expand this community, promote the game for SSM and stream some tournies...I agree on it not being at launch. Could it be after that? God I really hope so....
This game needs a spectator mode. Gladiator Arena battles would be so awesome. Tournaments can be held allowing people to spectate the matches.
Sounds Good In Theory, But If Implemented It Might Take A "Hit" On The PS3 Performance .
I Hope They Implemented It In A Future Add-On .
