    [URGENT] Spectating on PS4 allows CHEATING

    Today I logged on to play with 2 friends, when I logged on, they had JUST joined an Arena queue. Rather than play a game myself in the meantime, I decided to spectate their match. I started spectating right when the character selection screen came up. Mind you I was also in a chat party with the two during this. So when the selection screen came up, I was able to see what Gods BOTH teams were choosing in real time. This flaw gives me the ability to tell my friends what the other team picks, allowing my friends to in turn choose their Gods accordingly (cheating).

    I don't know if this is a problem for other players, or on other gametypes/platforms, or if it was native to me, but it needs to be fixed immediately before others catch on.

    Tl;DR
    Spectating a friends match from the moment they enter queue allows you to tell them what Gods the other team picks.


    Sincerely,
    NEITHJOUST

    I'm pretty appalled that nobody has even had the decency to reply.. Is this not a big deal to anyone else? I mean if it doesn't matter, then whatever, but I don't think that is the case.

    This behavior is the same on all platforms. There hasn't been a change to it in the past because its not a problem for Ranked matches, and spectate isn't heavily used by people.
