[Suggestion] Instant replay option for broadcasters, current game in smaller frame.

    Instant replay is good. I'm not sure Picture-in-Picture type stuff is needed. The game already includes lag, so you could just jump back to where you were after reviewing the past (so could broadcasters).

    For live broadcasting, perhaps PIP might matter. Kind of tricky to render the game twice though, and expect it to work on all hardware.

    Since Dota 2 allows for very fast action, sometimes the broadcasters or the spectators can miss stuff.

    How about the option for the broadcaster to toggle an instant replay X seconds and we can see in slow motion what happened while the game continues in a smaller frame, afterwards the smaller frame can change back to fullscreen. Sort of like a PIP, I think this would be a very good feature to have, specially when great plays happen in tournaments and a lot of stuff was going on at the same time, or when they miss a first blood.

    What do you guys think?
