Blizzard demonstrates StarCraft II replay changes: group watching, resume from replay and more

StarCraft II

By on February 21, 2013 at 12:28 pm

As we head into March and the release of Heart of the Swarm, Blizzard have released a video showing how the new replay features will work — features that are available in the current Wings of Liberty patch right now.

The video below highlights new replay features such as the ability to watch replays as a group, the ability to immediately jump into a replay after a match, and of course the ability to resume a game from a replay at any time and play it out differently. The ability to recover matches that have crashed is also discussed, which will be of great use at tournaments.

I’ve seen that ‘resume from replay’ function at a tournament recently where one player disconnected and they were able to resume the game where they left off.
It’s really weird and very cool.

 

It’s been added because they refuse to make a LAN client for tournaments and people were disconnecting from battle.net which created serious problems on a who won? perspective. Has happend at GSL even.

 

Still no automated tournies? Zzz. Guess they have to leave some stuff out so people buy LotV.
