    I recently bought a ticket to the defence, and everytime I go to watch a game, I get all the items/kills/gpm and whilst it doesn't reveal the victory or the time, it can make the winner of the game fairly obvious even at a glance (at the levels say). Personally I would rather only see the time, and see none of the farm stats before I chose to reveal a game, that way nothing would be spoiled and I would be able to "time budget" better. IMO the more useful information (the time) is blocked from vision unless I choose to reveal the winner and the stats that give a very good indication (often blatently obvious even at first glance) to the winner are already displayed.

    I would prefer all but the time (and other non game give away stats like date, heros picked, what players played which heroes) to be hidden until I requested it to all be shown, thus allowing one to watch a game in suspense and possible allowing you to skip the games you consider boring (eg someone who hates REALLY long games or short ones that are over really quickly)

    I agree with this. I would prefer to see just the heroes picked and the time but that's just me. Seeing the gold and the levels is kinda an easy way to tell who has won the match.

      I came here to post about this and I'm glad to already see a topic. Could we get the same thing that hides the victorious team until you click it with almost all the other information? Buttons that say things like "Reveal items" and "Reveal duration of replay" would be great. The less I know the more the experience can be just like a livestream, where I have no idea what's going to happen next.
