  • Add "follow" to access replays easier and other improvement proposals for replays.

    Right now I am crazy into watching replays from some professional players. But sometimes it's really hard to find.
    Now what I can do is, for example, in order to watch DK.Burning recent games(Assert his profile is not private), I need to
    -> click community
    -> find pro team
    -> search "DK"
    -> go to team "DK" profile
    -> find Burning
    -> check his profile
    -> find all games history
    -> open each one and guess if it is a good one or not.
    -> close it if it's not good. Then I return to the Burning's profile, because game history windows is closed automatically when I select to view one game.
    -> find the good replay and start downloading(assert the replays does not expire).

    So we see how difficult to find a professional player's replay.

    And I will be appreciate if valve can implement something like this,
    1, Follow. We can follow someone and we can have a list of all accounts we are following.
    2, Nick name. We can have our customized nick name for the person we're following. Since changing name is so common in dota2.
    3, Game history list. We can view their game history conveniently, like showing us a list of all available replays and display "likes" in one column of the list.
    4, Recommended replays. We can get some recommended replays directly in dota2. For example, dendi had a good game and a lot of people like it then it's recommended on the page and everyone can download it. And I also think valve should save some really good replays in records, serving as some legendary replays or tutorials.
    5, Add commentator replays. We can download some replays with commentary inside.

    This is my draft about an improvement for dota replay system, and I will keep working on some details if a lot of you are interesting in this thread.

    This would actually be a great idea. I could stalk Dendi without even opening my web browser.
    10/10 Volvo pls add.
