The Spectator Mode label seen while spectating a match
Spectators are automatically invited to subsequent matches
  • There is a limit of 10 spectators simultaneously
  • Players are able to see if any players are spectating their match, as well as how many and who they are.
  • Players can choose to make their matches invitation-only, preventing players from spectating them unless specifically invited. Players can also kick unwanted spectators from their games.
  • Spectator mode supports spectating both sides of a game, allowing players and casters to watch the game from both players` perspectives from within a single Hearthstone client. Simply choose to spectate both players at once, and an integrated display will show all cards and details for both players. The display does not switch each turn Hearthstone takes place in turns. Each turn gives a player the opportunity to act. At the end of each turn, play is passed back to the other player. A round describes one turn for each ; rather the "opponent"`s cards are shown upside down.
  • When a match ends, any spectating players will enter a `waiting state` until the player being spectated joins another match. When the player starts another match, all spectators will automatically be connected to the new game.
  • Players can currently only spectate actual matches, not the deckbuilding and selection screens.
