yeah, I love the spectate system in DotA 2, but that system has got a fair bit or server requirements, don’t much care for the twitch thing at all, mostly because it requires a really nice internet connection for all parties involved and I for one am lacking. Also it doesn’t even offer the glorious 4K resolution that my machine can render and display.
the problem with Homeworld matches is the long nature of some matches, you would need to delay so that spectators are not revealing strategies to one side or the other. DotA2 has i think a 2 min delay because strategies can change that fast. but homewold as I remember was not the fastest multiplayer matches and strategies take time to come to fruition, so probably a 15 or even 20 min delay might be necessary. dunno if spectating live(delayed) matches will be possible/practical. may be stuck with replays. hopefully those files will be shareable in some fashion.
