  • [Suggestion] Better replay management tab

    One of the most recent updates included this point:

    * We've worked with the ESL team to collect the replays for yesterday's games that weren't broadcast through DotaTV. Replays are available here: LINK
    This has risen a question: how come we have no Replay management in Dota 2? Right now it's a complete pain in the Courier to manage and even play replays.

    Right now in order to play a replay you need to find the game in the tournament\player game list. Some replays hold nice memories and I love watching them over and over again (or showing to friends) but it gets harder since the number of games played rises and it's hard to remember the accurate page and date of the game. I'm not mentioning third-party replays downloaded from net/friend/tournament.

    Most of us do know that opening console is the answer but, you know it's a Developer's Console after all. User interface should let me do things without using it, especially when we're talking about such a primitive thing as watching saved games. My girlfriend wanted to watch downloaded ESL games and she just gave up on it not wishing to operate the console. I would be happy even if there were a button that'd open an Explorer window to Select a *.dem file.

    I understand that HL2 has an ancient engine and a lot of free space in the menu so console seems pretty fitting, but Dota 2 has so many things on the screen so even I don't like to see console atop of it, not talking about other 'common users'. It's just would be nice to have some tab with a list of downloaded replays, like TF2 has.
