League of Legends Spectator Mode and Patch Notes

League of Legends Spectator Mode and Patch Notes

 

League of Legends released their highly anticipated Spectator Mode early this morning. This intricate game setting has been used exclusively for tournament play for quite some time, and after much consideration and thorough play-testing, Riot has decided to hand the controls over to the players.

Spectator Mode will allow players to not only drop into their friend’s live games, but also manipulate time and space within the game for their own purposes. Viewers will be able to pause and rewind the game, view items and gold, keep track of summoner spell cooldowns, see the order in which players are leveling their abilities and toggle each team’s vision of the map. This new mode will allow you to move around the map as you wish, compare the progress of each team and even practice your mechanics and shoutcasting abilities!

 

Spectator Mode!
  • Spectate your Friends
    • Added the ability to spectate games that friends are playing by right clicking their name in the buddy list
    • Easily identify friends you can spectate by the eye icon near their name
  • Featured Games
    • The landing page will now host featured games that anyone can spectate
    • Click the ‘Watch Now’ icon to view some of the most skilled players in League of Legends!
    • Games cycle at regular intervals so be sure to check back often
  • Directed Camera
    • Implemented a directed camera mode that will automatically follow the action in game!
    • The camera will seamlessly jump between champion fights and other critical moments
    • Interesting events like Champion kills will be prioritized
    • When multiple Champions are on the screen, the camera will automatically adjust to include them
  • Timeshift Controls
    • Spectators can now jump around the timeline of a live game to watch past events!
    • Replay events in slow motion to review action-filled moments
    • Spectators can now actively fast forward through the game
  • Spectator announcer coverage will now report more events
  • Updated spectator UI elements to respect colorblind mode

 

For all of you ghosting fanatics out there, Spectator Mode is three minutes behind the actual live game. This is to ensure that swarms of malicious summoners don’t call out enemy locations and ruin the match.

The interface may appear daunting at first glance but after a few minutes of randomly mashing buttons on your keyboard, you will start to get the hang of it. The UI is clean, readable and easy to understand for players of all skill levels. Riot has even included a free “Join Now” match every time you log in just in case you want to watch some high elo players fight it out!

The newly dubbed “Spectator Patch” also came with some pretty big in-game changes as well. Listed below are the patch notes with an array of soon-to-be released skins, champion changes, item updates, bug fixes and general game play tweaks.
