Would do more harm than good.

The side effects would be alerting people who are doing wrong to stop before getting caught. It would make catching water glitchers, wall glitchers, griefers etc a whole lot harder. You can only rely on the kill feed that shows up for admins so much before you need hard proof. Especially for server owners that want their admins to get all available proof when banning someone.

From what I understand, he is talking about the issue of an server admin going into admincam during a scrim / pcw, which shouldnt be possible if the server owner has configured things in a fair matter.


You can set up the match server so that you have access to admin-commands that lets you switch maps and turn off vehicle claiming (etc), which are necessary for a match, but giving no access to things like admincam. Only referee (and dedicated streamers) should have access to admincam.


I agree with the creator of the thread, specifically in the case of a clan vs clan match, it would be very helpful to see whether the server is set up correctly, in that no participating player should have access to admincam (or other abusable cheat commands which can be done undetected). 


Perhaps there can be a server setting which, when turned on, will make it transparent what kind of admin rights each player on the server has? Or just broadcasts playername whenever admin commands are used, like thread opener suggested. Either way, having such an option in the server settings would be useful when configuring a server for competitive play specifically.
