Thanks to helpful feedback both from community members on the Steam forums and from pro players like Volcano, we’ve adjusted the observer and spectator UI, which now include:
- A UI showing both team’s active weapon, player name, health, armor, etc, when spectating a 10 player match.
- X-ray vision so dead observers can see their own teammates through walls.
- A new convar “sv_competitive_official_5v5″ that allows connected spectators to see both teams in x-ray, and forces a match to display 5v5 scoreboards regardless of maxplayers setting (Allows setting maxplayers to 12 to allow spectators into a 5v5 match).
