I have been facing exactly this suddenly. Very strange.

Hi @EarthThrower787
Are these replays from games from this last update?If so, could it be that you have mods that interfere with these replays?

I also have this issue, has anyone managed to resolve. exactly the same as described plus a buggy noise in the background like trying to build building on occupied space. Have tried altering hotkeys for spectate function but issues continues just stuck on a different player. Very annoying.

Same issue for me. Can’t use spectator mode

Thank you for reporting.
We have identified the cause of the problem - some of your “Watch Player” hotkeys are unset:

We are working to resolve this problem in future updates; as a workaround in the meantime - please make sure those hotkeys are set.
