Hey @WipeIt7314

Unfortunately I am not sure what the issue is you are describing. Could you please attach some screenshots?
I am personally unable to see any problems following your reproduction steps.

It seems that this bug has been fixed by the newest patch without mentioning on the patch note. I was wrong previously because I was using hotkeys to select players. In that way, despite hotkey selection and actual player is inconsistent, what I described is indeed correct.

I noticed a related issue before that happens where there are players with extra long names in the recorded game, the selected player is not matched with selected one.

I had the same multiple times already.
A player on the dropdown menu bottom left is selected, but the actually selected player doesnt match.
4v4 games.

Pretty sure this bug is still here. At least in recs, maybe not when spectating games, but this of course needs more tests. The affiliated rec can be an example.

Hey @WipeIt7314

I checked out the recorded game and now understand the issue you are referring to, which is already being tracked :slight_smile:
