  • Game Replay Access Denied

    I casted 3 lobby games today and it doesn't show up in my profile.
    So I got the match IDs for the players and the game is denying my access.

    It doesn't make any sense. Why deny access when I was in that game AND spectators were turned on.

    Agreed. This issue is also affecting the DK vs. VG Sina cup replays, which weren't in the Dota TV ticket due to tech problems and the match IDs were moved into it later. Of course since they were originally private lobbies with spec turned on, access denied.

    Of course it should be as simple as:
    - Spectators turned on = public replays
    - Spectators turned off = private replays

    Currently you can work around the issue by having a player in that game upload the replay somewhere i.e dropbox, then download that and play it through "playdemo replays/xxxxxxxxx.dem" in console.

    Do note that this issue also affects sites like DotaCinema etc. who can't get auto-access to replays of public scrims & inhouses which would in theory be of much higher quality than standard pub matches.

      Also, even if spectators are turned off (which actually refers to dotatv), the ones in broadcaster channels should have access to replays regardless.

        This is really annoying to say the least. Started casting some games for this local tournament and when I wanted to view those replays to find out where I can improve, it didn't even show up in my profile.

        Really hope valve can find a workaround to this problem.

          Why a workaround and not a proper way that actually works?

          Also keep in mind, that local hosted games are not even able to brocast to dotatv what would be a nice addition
