This game honestly and truly needs replays being usable again. Like Dota(War3) had replays you could watch people in action and learn tricks or builds etc with them.

Im for new heroes (Yay for Trundle, latest heroes have all been girls anyway) but I need replays. Streams and videos are good, but they lack the ability to check items easily or focus on more than the hero the uploader is playing.

So come on please, let us watch replays

EDIT: Also it would vastly help with tournaments, e-sport aspect and etc.

They are working on replays. Just cause they release champs doesn't mean they aren't working other things.

It's called: Multitasking.

I understand full how a company works and multitasking... However while appearing whiny (Which I probably do sound) I want them to just release it bugs included at least so I can start watching Gragas or any of my favorite heroes alot more.

EDIT: And also to rewatch those awesome games I just played where I did extremely well.

And OP, how can artists give you replays? They have no coding skills or programming skills outside what they need for champion creation/tweaking. I guess they could draw them frame by frame, but that would take awhile....

Watching replays is kind of simple really. All it involves is the server giving you a file that shows where and when each player clicks, presses buttons and etc. Then the game just translates this information and replays it. Thats the simplest view of it, im not a programmer or coder so of course it involves alot more.

At this time, replays would not be able to stay with the player base past a patch (which resets stuff). Therefore, they are tackling the extremely difficult task of keeping one thing, while not everything else with a patch, whilst not corrupting data. The only thing holding them back is the technical aspects of it.
