  • [REPORT] Bug Counter Games Smeevil!

    the bug is simple, if you log in with your steam on another computer, you will see that the games are not marked as watched, watch them again and keep a record. Or simple Remove x:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\userid\570\remote\scripts\tou rnament_watch.txt And ReWatch Games.

    I do not know if I posted in the correct location, if possible move to the correct location.
    If you have tested and confirmed that it is true please give feedback

    Sorry my bad English.

    I have investigated your claim and, at least as of NOW it seems not to be true.

    Whenever you log into DotA2 the game replicates the said file into the appropriate spot. The actual information as to whether you have watched those games is probably stored in a remote server like they should.

    Many of claims and reports of people that got multiple views out of a game happened probably to an error on the server side when they were streaming particular games (that is just my guess, I cannot confirm this obviously)

      Still working just to test this.
      Close your dota 2 Remove the file mentioned above, open your dota 2 see which matches are marked as "Not Viewed", watch again. +1 On courier.

          wow, this is just crazy. I've been trying hard to watch games as much as I can and we got this. I think watching replays should not add your view count. It's just not fair to other players who are taking their time to watch these games.

            Is this even legit? I mean, by looking at this http://dev.dota2.com/attachment.php?...5&d=1368567211
            seems you don't even have to watch any games anymore.

                and seriously, if you are wasting your time to get those stupid counts not to watch epic games as live

                "For those of you that won’t be able to catch the games live you will be able to watch the replays in order to increase your total games viewed count." - http://www.cyborgmatt.com/2013/05/do...meevil-courier
                now save your time. it was supposed to work this way as already other tournament couriers do. (inky, grillhound, wyrmeleon)

                      I have followed all of the reproduction steps and I'm still unable to reproduce this bug. Every time I log back to DotA2 the file is re-created and all the games I have watched are still tagged as such.

                        The problem here is that there is a bug allowing you to watch the same replay several times and all those views will be counted as newly watched matches. 101 views from Western Qualifiers when there were only 12 matches so far - is that fairness?

                          Okay, I was just now able to reproduce it by erasing the said text file instead of deleting it. I confirm this bug.

                              well I only questioned his idea about adding count by watching replays - "..I think watching replays should not add your view count."
