When I sat down for a preview of Games of Glory a while back, the team at Lightbulb Crew made it apparent that they wanted their free to play MOBA to be a contender on the eSports front. A few months later and Games of Glory has taken the first initial step in that direction by adding the new Spectator mode.

"We made the decision to create a Spectating Client after seeing the success of our last few live onsite tournaments at Dreamhack Summer, Gamer's Assembly, and Dreamhack France, as well as several online tournaments hosted by our partners AEFY eSport and ESL," said Anders Larsson, Co-founder of Lightbulb Crew. "We saw a need in the community to make Games of Glory more tournament friendly, and we look forward to now being able to host even bigger and better tournaments!"

Currently, Spectator mode lifts the fog of war on the battlefield but does not have any time delay set on the spectator. Because of this, players will have to select whether their match is able to be spectated on to avoid cheating. In the future, Spectator mode will have a delay introduced. Other features include the ability to pause matches and a special "Referee Time Out" option specifically catered towards tournament play.

You can check out Games of Glory through Steam or leave feedback on Spectator mode on the game's forums.
