Hi

I saw this in the 9.17 patch notes 

Block Quote

 

  1. Increased the maximum number of participants (including Spectators) in Team Training and Special Battle modes to 20 players. The number of team members remains limited to 15 players.

 

got from here

I saw this and thought, that would make the FC's job a hell of a lot easier, if they do mean clan wars and strongholds. No more trying to drive and direct. But how exactly would they implement this? Would they let the 5 spectators roam freely around the map? That could be almost as good as the destroyed object minimap mod; a lot of spotting potential. Or are they going to be tied to their teams tanks as in post mortem mode. Which seems reasonable to me, but the zoom out mods would give quite an advantage. Or would they be required to effectively view the battlefield and control the team.

So idle ramblings aside, does anyone know anything more about this?

Cheers

Special Battle is ESL and such, not Strongholds.

Only ESL then, no clan wars either. Doh. I've been avoiding the game for a while, obviously forgot that . Cheers for the response.

I am pretty sure, yes.
