When will it be enabled again (I read a post saying that it would be 'some day')? I remember that it was 2 or 3 months ago (possibly more), and it hasn't been since. Is there a way to cap how many spectators there can be at once? I really would just like to spectate mostly snipers for a few minutes every now and again to observe their play style.

I know it could be abused.. is there a way to autokick someone that is in spec for more than 5 or 10 minutes?

I simply hate games where I come in view of the opposite team and get headshotted over and over and over almost instantly, and I hate even more that I can't spec the people doing it to see if they're very talented or if they've downloaded their skills.

how not to get headshotted by the sniper rifle:
randomly move left/right (completely randomly)
don't walk through straightaways, especially if you're in lower ground
jump and duck frequently, if you're trying to approach a sniper straight on, ducking while strafing left and right is great (though if they're super pro you're fucked anyway...this method still works w/ zalfy though)

honestly, the huntsman is such a bugged piece of shit that if you got headshotted by it, chances are the little fucker who shot you
a) wasn't aiming for you
b) starting charging the shot before you were even visible
c) got really fucking lucky

that's good advice, unfortunately (or fortunately) I've been playing since TFC (was pro med + soldier) and am already quite familiar with all of it, and I already employ all of it every time I play.

That is the problem, me strafing left/right (as you suggested) constantly as I move toward the enemy and getting headshotted quickly every single time. It is frustrating, and I'd be more inclined to respect the snipers' skill if I could verify that, as I said, it wasn't downloaded. ;P

It's been disabled practically forever. I used to have srctv enabled, but it uses more resources than I wish it did.

Well, that answers why you don't have SrcTV enabled, but why not spec?

Because people would sit in it afk or wait in it trying to get on the stacked team.

Too late.

Why not just add something like https://forums.alliedmods.net/showthread.php?t=93098? Set spec limit to one or something.
