    Spectator Score

    Take a look at this image - it is a spectator view that I found on the internet and the part I'm looking at is the blue and red team:



    I think we're all aware that this spectating view is important for eSports and I think there's a very simple change that adds some very useful information...

    Remove the "currently selected weapon" icon - because, whilst it might have been a nice idea in theory, it's useless in practice! I don't think anyone takes anything from this - maybe duel it might help.

    Replace the weapon simple with a Score column and/or a Frags column. It would take up equal space on the screen and gives a constant update of who is doing what.

    It is always something I want to see and, obviously, you can't flash up the scoreboard when watching. It also avoids bit's like this (13:50):

    I'd still like to see this implemented - I still get a bit frustrated watching a stream or video and not being able to see the scoreboard.

    I looked at the code and it looked pretty simple to do.

      Well, I finally managed to get the code working and had a go at creating this myself. Here's how it would look:



      I think it gives a much better view of how individuals were doing without having to have the streamer or viewer continually pop-up the score screen. Maybe some people aren't interested, I don't know.
      It'd be interesting to see if streamers like @Zaccubus or @cafe think it would help or if it is just putting too much info on screen and getting in the way.

      Edit: Hmm those links don't seem to work properly... the HTML code was spamming out so I've created a link instead. no idea whether that will actually help
