I noticed something

I noticed that people in battle are getting on to a different wizard so they can see the spells, only casting and getting advantage. It's not fair. And the people I ran into who did that, I lost both of me. It makes me so angry! How about only friends can watch the battle. Doesn't stop all of it, but brings it down a little.

You can't cheat with spectator mode. They took away the coloring of the spells, so it only shows it as a regular card, enchant, TC, and gear spells all show up as the same color.

Wolf Skullslinger, (plus with friends you'd run into the exact same thing you're complaining about)

Yes, they changed all spells to look like normal spells, which helps a little for things like a gear blade that is a different color, but you can still see the nature of the spell. If you cast a 45% bubble, it shows white instead of as a yellow tc, but you can still see it's a 45%. Same with my weakness example that I've been giving in the many threads on this topic. For example, you can still see the accuracy number on a spell so you can still know that the weakness spell was enchanted with Extraordinary, and therefore stacked with a regular weakness. But it takes a more diligent person to notice such things now that all spells appear as normal spells.

At least changing all the spells to look like normal spells was a start, but a determined player can still have his friends give him important information if they are paying attention. I think Spectator Mode was a great addition, allowing us to see games up close and personal.

My solution is you can see the spell being cast, but you cannot mouse over it to see it's exact nature.

I do see your point, but I don't think it matters to the overall match. If you're trying to stack weaknesses then you would immediately put on another regular/enchanted right after you put the different weakness on. I'm trying to get the loremaster on my balance level 30 so I can spam her and spam weaknesses as well trollololololol.

Sorry for being rude in the other post about this.
