I might be completely wrong here as I've never played it, but I'm assuming everyone fucks off when the get killed (to find another game), rather than wait 20mins for the next round, yeh?
So whoever does eventually win, ends up having no one to witness it, besides (maybe) a handful of people. So they end up having to post their results outside of the game on forums etc.
So that unfortunate side effect of online gaming (people quitting) actually ends up being free advertising and great word of mouth.

Then again, giving how new gamers seem to just love watching complete strangers play games (outside of comps), maybe I'm wrong and they all stick around and watch the whole game -_-.

Once you're dead there's no spectator cam, apart from a fixed camera that looks at your dead body. So unless the game happens to end up within 5 metres of where you died you won't see anything of the rest of the match. So definitely, people exit when they die.

Except if you're in a squad or a duo. Then you get to spectate for as long as your team mates are alive. Either way, it's still limited.

The devs have talked about kill cams for solo, but not for duo/squad since it would give things away.

Hehe, reminds me of when Ram used to come over to Lan and we'd share an internet connection and play Counterstrike. Firstly it would trick the server and stack the team 7 vs 6 and second which ever of us would die first we'd fly around and tell the other where the enemy was.

Good times.

Wouldn't coaching already be prevalent in squad? Or do you only get an uncontrolled 1st person view?

When you spectate in squad you only get the view of whoever you're spectating. So there is some coaching/spotting but you're limited by what the player is looking at.

Oceania now have first-person servers in place for duo matches only. Solo and squad to follow.

Personally, not a fan of fps with this game. I know everyone else will go for it but luckily I don't mind playing solo.

I can't do FPS in this, it gives me motion sickness. Watched a video on youtube and had a headache
