I had an idea for a no delay - or short delay - spectator mode. The whole point of the delay is so you can't help your friends team by watching for MIA's, or giving out enemy positions. So, what if instead of giving full viewing privileges, you could only watch your friends champion - and wherever they move their camera - and get rid of the map and Fog Of War options.
By getting rid of the map, you can no longer call out all lanes MIA's, and since you can only see what your friend sees, you cant exactly act as an extra eye. For things where someone pops out of the bushes quick, anyone else on their team could see that on the map, or if they're viewing lanes quick.
Obviously Fog Of War would be turned on to whichever team you're spectating, so if your friend is scrolling over the map, you'll only see darkness, just like them.
If you want to be really skeptical you could say that you could have a team of 10 on skype - one watcher for each player - and have the watchers call MIA's, but that could be easily fixed by adding a 15-45 second delay. I just think that 3 minutes is extremely excessive, and can really take the excitement out of spectating if you're trying to watch a friend play and you're talking to them.
So what are everyones thoughts on this?
