Spectator mode sounds great. However I'm really mot a fan of the latest changes. It REALLY seems that the netcode, hit detection and such is completely out of whack. I've actually gone back to quake live to relive playing as though I have the 30-50 ping I actually have.

Playing BF3 is like wading through sour cream and until they fix that and give it as precise and quick input as CS, it's nothing but a pretty benchmark.

I really think the lag issue is being over-exaggerated. It's something I've rarely experienced in any server with a 50ms ping or lower. It's also not meant to be a twitch based shooter. A game can be competitive because of its heavy team-based nature. Being smart allows you to avoid most issues.
