Battlefield 3 spectator mode

When playing a FPS game you will have moments of greatness, although some of these would be when you’re alone and don’t have an audience to see what you achieved. This is when you want to record those moments from a spectator perspective and show the world.

What game shoulden't have spectator mode? This should be a sytem feature.

Someone please explain to me why spectator mode is important. Years ago when we played games like Rainbow Six and Ghost Recon, we would always kick any spectators since they were usually friends of someone playing and would be on comms with them and a second pair of eyes to warn them. Now suddenly everyone wants this mode? Why is that? What useful purpose does it serve? Or does everyone just want to cheat?

That's probably why DICE is withholding the Battlerecorder. But seriously, It was in BF2, Why can't it be in BF3. I know FB2 is fully capable of implementing it. Also, it's not like BF3 is an MLG game (Though it could be with some pretty basic features) So they should just go ahead and give us the tool.

It doesn't "Spectate" either, it records and lets you watch past games. so any worry of cheating is moot.

I don't consider the Battlerecorder and spectator mode to be even close to the same thing. At least it didn't use to be. I am very familiar with Battlerecorder on BF2 and still have several files from our server of some of our epic Project Reality matches with other gaming communities. It's just a replay feature that was rediculously flawed with no ability to rewind if I remember right.

Spectator mode is when someone joined a server and instead of jumping in the battle, they chose to log into the ongoing match as a spectator where they would have either a free roving world cam, selectable 3rd person view of any player or a combination of any or all of these features. At least that is how is was back in the "golden age" of shooters.
