    Getting the same error all the time as well. This needs to be fixed ASAP since so many people(including me) have paid money to watch these tournament games in the client.

      Just a reminder, I did post a workaround earlier in this thread. Note that for tournament replays, you'll need to use the Wireshark method.

        Dancing with "WireShark"?! I want to just push a button and watch the game. Because, I paid for it.

          Thanks for bringing this up again. It's pretty cumbersome, but at least I'm able to download stuff again.

            I'm getting this error as well. It seems it has gotten a lot worse for a lot of people these last days.

            What is especially annoying is that the Wireshark method isnt working for me. I download the replays and rename them, but when i try to watch them, console tells me that it "cant read header" or something like that, cant really remember atm.

              You missed a step, you need to open and extract the .bz2 file using a program like 7-zip and then rename the .dem file you get to *matchid*.dem (as in, don't rename .dem.bz2 to .dem)


              And a reminder to Valve: you could probably fix this issue for a lot of people if you undo this change:

              - Replay downloading is now paralleled to improve download speeds.

                I'm so silly (and ashamed). Thank you for not being stupid.

                EDIT: Forgot to thank you for the guide on the workaround, so thank you!

                  Why isn't this fixed? I would have spent on the Defense ticket if it weren't for this stupid bug. Come on Valve. I really don't care if Medusa is delayed another week just make sure something that affects your paying customers gets fixed ASAP.

                    So.... once again just bumping this and hoping for a response from Valve.

                    I've purchased:

                    The Defense 3 - $10
                    AtoD 2 - $4
                    GosuLeague - $1
                    StartSeries III - $3

                    For a total of $18 that has been flushed down the toilet. I know it's not that much money, I've spent far more on cosmetics and keys, but WTF. Please at least address the issue, or give me a refund/credit until the downloads are working again, at which point I'll rebuy the tickets.

                    What really irks me is that I can watch any of these games commentated by the same casters for FREE on streams, but I'd rather pay the premium to view them in the client.

                    Any official response would be greatly appreciated, thank you.

                      Defense 3 problems

                      I too bought a ticket, and have only managed to get 1 replay out of probably 30+ download attempts (failing with error 206).

                      Pretty frustrating, having paid the cash and this is on a connection that downloads steam games at up to 2.0 MB/s.

                          Still broken, will the Dev's even respond? Even a "hey, we know about this and are working on it" would be nice....

                                So... Valve... sup?

                                Still can't watch any tournaments. Paid $10 for the Defense... don't care about viewing the replays anymore. Now I just want my refund. Is this the right forum to ask for that?
