  • Replay System

    If this is a repeat of information about the replay system as it currently stands I am sorry, but I am tired of the current system especially when I have paid money to be able to watch replays from tournaments.

    Downloading of a replay is iffy at best. The only time I can reliably download a replay is if I sit on the screen where the download replay button is located at. If I leave this screen the download will stop and will not resume again.

    Downloading multiple replays does not work because of the reason above.

    You can't cancel a download once it has started which means if the download gets stopped and is not responsive I have to restart Dota so that I can try the download again or I can wait 5 minutes until Dota eventually gives me the error
    "Failed to find file chunk in download list."

    The system doesn't cache partially downloaded replays which means when I restart a download it starts it again from the beginning.

    I seem to get this as well, it mostly happens when I start downloading a replay and then start a game (eg. watch a replay, live game or just matchmaking), which kind of makes me assume something is going wrong during the non-responsive time when the game is loading. An easy workaround I find is to start a game (if you intend to) before downloading a replay and it should be fine.

    There's another issue in the post i made in this thread:

    Basically the whole replay download system could use a bit of a rework.
