    Right now the only way for someone to switch to spectator is to reconnect to the server, or have an admin move them to spectate.

    Why aren't we allowed to type spectate in console? I tried this, and I got a message saying something like "Nice try there chief!" Made me feel like I was caught doing something dirty, lol. What's the reasoning behind this?

    Spec is restricted because of shit like when you get infected you goto spec and respawn as a human. If I'm wrong then that would be cool to have it unrestricted.

    In the escape server you spawn back as zombie soon you become a zombie so there it would be not a problem to get this code public.
    Correct me if i am wrong but so far i saw i didnt saw them come spawn back as human

    On the zombie mod server i cant tell, dont play so much there, i am more for ZE :grin:

    Right after zombies spawn I believe you can spawn as a human, I could be wrong though,

    well it could make balancing issues with zombies going spec and if the last human does it the map time resets

    Nope, you cannot.

    The problem with this though, is that the zombies will just go to spectate to do.. well... nothing. If they have to rejoin they probably don't want to bother, same counts for humans, they might intentionally join spec and go zombie that way.

    Spectate was abused in the past by people to avoid being killed. For example: When a human was about to get stabbed they would go into spectate and rejoin as zombies, that wouldn't hurt their k/d ratio and rank (back when we had it). Same goes for zombies, if a human was about to kill them they would join spectate and rejoin a team with full health. Hope this clarifies the reason it has been restricted.

    Now I understand why we can't have nice things.

    When the round begins and the starter/mother zombies haven't been selected, you can press M and change to spectate. Or wait till you die
