Spectating ATs enjoyable and let's us follow which matches/fights/players we want. Why is this not enabled for everyone?

    It shouldn’t be enabled for anyone. Also for streamers - some players might not like to share their gameplay/builds.

  • No, its to easy to exploit! END OF

    I was thinking the same a few days ago while watching MightyTeapots AT stream. In Guild Wars 1 EVERYONE could watch the matches and it was a big reason why PvP was bigger relative to other game modes when compared to Guild Wars 2. I don't know how after all those years this hasn't been reworked.

    And to the "exploiting" argument - just add a one minute delay to the matches the public will be able to see and the problem is solved. I am not sure but I think spectating in Guild Wars 1 acutally had a delay of a few minutes (not sure if intended or not)

    Balance Patch every 6 weeks kappa

    Mighty is also streaming his matches with delay
