  • Very High skill replays are terrible

    Three times now I've gone looking for a very high skill rated recent game to watch to learn about some heroes I'm interested in and every time it's been impossible to find a good game. The front page invariably has only one game that's 1) not diretide, 2) didn't have one team quit in the first five minutes. Then I watch that game and either everyone quits after 15 minutes, or there's a blatant feeder. So I suggest adding a filter for game length and ability to exclude game types.

    Currently looking at Match 392343963:
    Summary: Dire has a strong pushing team. Radiant plays Teamallcarry.

    Dire Victory

    Storm Spirit

    Bounty Hunter
    Troll Warlord

    One person on each team randoms. Storm spirit is the last pick. He jungles. Dire wards combo really well with Invoker. Radiant never wards. Tinker stacks the ancients, but to my knowledge never gets to kill any of them. Troll and Timber have a slugmatch, Invoker and Bounty Hunter run through the team without opposition.
