I thought after spectator mode we were supposed to get Replays. Whatever happened to that?

Also its kinda backwards, replays, technologically speaking, should have came BEFORE spectator, but whatever.

EDIT: @Red post
Thank you for responding to my thread! Its good to hear that a much anticipated feature is on its way!

The technology is obviously here (Recorded features you can replay over and over, but only for that match)
But they haven't formed it into a working feature yet.

I guess soon? .___.

Dammit.

Tryndamere recently said they were coming soon (TM) in that big, big thread. It'd probably take forever to find the exact post though.

Replays have not been canned. It's a big feature and we want to make sure we deliver something that meets or exceeds your expectations. Also, like spectator mode, the feature requires the construction of a new service capable of supporting the massive number of players we have worldwide.

We've always intended to deliver a full fledged replay system, and have publicly stated so in the past. That intention hasn't changed, but I can't talk about timelines.

Actually, it's the right way around.

All the spectator interface and controls were needed for replays, and from what I've been able to infer from past riot posts, they'll have a significant level of cloud saving for replay files, which means the memory infrastructure to handle all of those files, as well as a distribution infrastructure to serve these files on demand to players.

It's all a rather messy business actually when you try to imagine handling data on the scale that Riot is working on.

we already have lolreplay, it's a great program that automatically records games.
