Sorry to bump an old thread, but I would really love to see this feature added, and as far as I know it's still not available. I play Starcraft 2 a lot, and we're able to save replays of any game we play or watch, so we can go back later and review our strategy, see where we messed up and what we can do better, and share our games with friends. It's also great for the eSports community as it gives commentators an easier way to find games to broadcast (many pro gamers and tournaments release replay packs of their games), so it gives the eSports community a lot more publicity. There are several youtube channels dedicated to SC2 broadcasting, and some of these videos get up to 100,000 views. If LoL had a feature similar to SC2's where games could be saved to a replay file, either as a player or as a spectator, I think it would be great for everyone in the community.

I agree with the earlier post Lolreplay is a very good tool that now gives option to record most matchs as spectator data. Now It would be nice if there was an official release but it would really step on the people who put so much work into lolreplay.

I could definitely see reason for there being a want for an official release as it would have less bugs, but think of the servers. NA has enough issues with strange glitches. I'd rather keep the server load to a minimum and use lolreplay. They even have their own servers for hosting replays so you can search for other champions and summoners and see how they play.

Its no possible to remove fog, see other time or check status of other chapions.
Spectator mode, you need to be the spectator not a player.

Correct me if I wrong.

Besides, I think league of legends should have own record replay way, not third part programs.
They could have shared the last championship replays in lol site for example.
A few updates back it became possible to record all games in spectator mode, so you can see everything and get all normal spectator options. However, that was broken by a LoL update about a month ago and has not yet been fixed. Riot really needs to give us replay options on par with Dota 2 with mouse recording of every player

Actually, the spectator mode replay from LoLreplay correctly updates HP and all that now.
