:arrow_forward: ISSUE

The icon colours for selected units are those of the player being viewed, rather than the player who owns the units.

:arrow_forward: REPRODUCTION STEPS

Watch a team game replay, go to the base of another player than you’re viewing, and select some of their units. Look at the colours on the units’ icons.

You can even select multiple players’ units in one selection now, and they will all have the colour of the playing being viewed.

Was it always possible to do these selection haxx in a replay, or is this an undocumented change? It’s welcome if so, but hopefully the colours can be fixed.

Thank you for the information! I’ve passed this along to our Test team to see if they see the same behavior and whether something can be done to improve how it is presented.

Thanks for the report! :+1:

Noticed today that it only happens when selecting multiple units. One unit at a time yields the correct colour.
