Spectating on the servers was disabled up until recently, but I guess it's now allowed. The problem is that people switch to spec in order to stack teams, resulting in a bunch of idiots taking up space on the server, and they're not even playing. I think it was a lot better when it was disabled.

Player X joins winning team
Auto balance notice goes up
Player X gets switched due to auto balance
Player X goes to spectator to wait until he can join the winning team

You know who you are...

Did they take it off? I remember using it at one point a while back.

I voted yes even though I'm guilty of hiding out in spectator before. Though that usually occurs when one of three situations take place

a) The players on my team are goofing off or don't want to play
b) When I first join the server and there are players I want to group with
c) When I get auto balanced due to some other jerk spectator exploiting.

Meh i just go a utility class.
b) When I first join the server and there are players I want to group withI try to do this but sitting in spec for longer than 30 secondes is annoying and I end up joining the other team anyhow.
c) When I get auto balanced due to some other jerk spectator exploiting.Ok im guilty on this one tho.

I was going to setup something to autokick/ban people doing this. In the meantime how about we votekick people who do this.

Well, being able to spectate hackers is always good for the community. Its not like there are admins on 24/7. But its almost safe to say that the servers remain full for the most part. If it means removing that capability then I'm against it.
