Hello community and developers,
I’m sure all of us are familiar with the fact that when an update or a patch is installed, more often than not, the recorded games from the time before that change will become unwatchable.
I would really like this to be remedied. A suggestion is that instead of having to incorporate this into the workload of new updates, perhaps there would be a recorded game watching mode which is ensured to be compatible with recorded games or vice versa. Maybe the game version from the time of the recorded game is preserved in a limited format in the game to the extent that allows the recorded game to be watched.
Alternatively, perhaps the way recorded games work can be changed in a way that they are not bound to the current game version that is played?
I don’t know exactly what would be the best way, but no matter the method, I would just like a recorded game to be watchable no matter how long it has been since the game was played.
I find it quite frustrating that I am not able to watch a recorded game from a match which was played as recently as last Saturday, only three days ago(!) For me and probably for many others, watching the recorded games to learn from yourself as well as from the opponent is an important part of the game. Removing that part of the game every time it changes is a relatively big deal and honestly off-putting at least for me.
Do you agree with my sentiment? What’s your take? Feel free to share your thoughts on this.
Thank you for reading,
