    This is implemented already in starcraft 2. Pressing "b" in a replay goes back about 10 seconds (I would say in dota this should be extended to 12 or 14 for dota. Big plays in sc2 are often instantaneous- a huge baneling hit or psi storm laning or something of the sort). Pressing "b" multiple times does multiple steps backwards. It is extremely useful, easy to use, and excellent for viewership.

      Don't particularly want it in the way the OP wrote, but a -10seconds type flash-rewind would be awesome (with a "return to present" button for live games) would be amazing

We need skip-ability in replays, too, but I would like to be able to go back a few seconds to see something I missed in the live game then click a button to resume watching along the "live" timeline.
        this is much better than op's suggestion
        +1 for this

            There were instant replays at the Thor Open, it really enriches the cast.
            They could only replay the old footage, this will be really awesome if the caster can control the cam freely.
