Spectator mode is a powerful instrument for moderating the Game, organizing eSport streamings and to take cool shots for video making by youtubers. It allows the user to enter any battle (independent of the rank and free slots in the battle) in free-camera mode. The Spectator does not have a tank on the battlefield and cannot change the outcome of the battle in any way, but can freely move around the map (including movement through textures).
What are the abilities that the Spectator Mode offers?
At the moment, Spectator mode gives the following abilities:
Free movement of the camera around the whole map
Various methods of camera movement on the map, adjustable camera speed
Ability to create key points anywhere on the map and moving the camera between them
Ability to follow any tank by binding the camera to it
Seeing the health of all players on the battlefield
Seeing the chats of all teams (and, generally, of all players) on the battlefield
Ability to write in the chat with the tag [Spectator] (Except for Spectator accounts which are given for YouTube video making purposes)
