  • [Suggestion] Skip pick screen, show pick order as a tab.

    I think it'd be better if the replays just started at the beginning of the game, and skip the loading + picking phase. Nobody wants to watch the loading screen. The picking may be somewhat interesting, but watching it as it happens is usually a waste of time. Instead, I propose moving the pick order to a tab like the gold gained or xp tabs. That way you can see the order of bans/picks and/or who randomed if you want.


    The replay should have an EZ skip the picking phase bookmark on the time slider, so you can quickly skip over the loading + picking phase and start watching the actual game.

      But I still sometime like to see pick order happening first so a small tweak I prefer over your suggestion ->

      "Accelerated pick screen" show order of picks but not the time it took each pick. Each 1 (or more?) second show the next pick. In 10 seconds you will be done. With the option to disable for the ones who prefer to see all the waiting.

      As for loading window scrap it all :P

        Pick phase is surely interesting, but sometimes I am in a hurry and I would like to see the tournament replay skipping the pick phase.

        It would be great having a button to go immediately to match start!
