  • Replay Unavailability - Possibly Unique Issue

    On almost every tournament I've purchased I've had games that stay unavailable for download, and since I'm seldomly available to watch games live, this means I've wasted quite a bit on tournament tickets. I'd been to this forum a few times before and seen other people complaining about the same issue, so I just assumed that it worked this way for everyone. This past weekend I was at a LAN with someone who said they'd bought all the same tournments that I'd bought, and they'd never had this issue. I was connected to the same router as this person on the same internet connection, and when I went to try to download a Defense 3 replay, I got the expected "Replay Unavailable" message. He was sitting 5 feet away from me, and went to download the same replay, where it was available for him. He downloaded and started it successfully, like he says he always does. Obviously, it seems that it has nothing to do with my connection (I wasn't even using the same CAT5 cable I normally use), so it has me wondering what sort of hardware or steam account issue could cause this. Has anyone seen anything like this in the past? I never have trouble playing dota2 or any other of the literally hundreds of online games I play on this PC (network performance wise), so I can't image what part of my connection could cause that. Any help with this would be appreciated.

    might not just tournament replay unavailable... currently all replays are unavailable to me. that makes me hard/impossible to check bug report when watching replays r necessary

      A few random replays are available for me at any given time. Usually they aren't games I actually want to watch, because they aren't teams that I care about as much.

        I bought a Defense 3 ticket 13 days ago and have since not been able to watch a single tournament replay through the client. I have made several posts regarding this problem but not a single response or excuse is given, like they haven't even acknowledged the problem. Why did i buy this ticket when there are VoD's AND the games are streamed live for free with the casters commentary. I also realize that this is only a problem for a handful of us because my friends can watch the replays. So so so disappointing... I'm off to find where i get my money back.

          I'm having the same problem trying to view the replay for Fnatic Raid Call vs Na'Vi in The Defense 3. Says "Replay Unavailable", even though all the other replays in the tournament work just fine...

              Just tried to download the Defense 3 No Tidehunter vs Turtle masters game (91968810), but I'm getting Replay Unavailable.

              Would really like some dev feedback on this since I did pay for access to this tournament and I'm sure I'm not the only frustrated ticket holder. Thanks.

                Every replay I look at, tournament or otherwise, is unavailable. I can watch replays I previously downloaded, but for whatever reason, I can't download any new ones.
