    Increase delay time and rewind live games?

    #1: Increase delay of the games.
    The current delay of live games is 30 seconds, which seems enough when it comes to ganking, but when it comes to wards its not enough.
    Wards up-time is 6 minutes, and with a delay on 30 seconds, an "ghoster" can easily tell where the wards are. It wouldn't hurt anybody that the delay is 6 minutes, why would it?
    Suggestion: Increase delay from 30 seconds to 6 minutes
    EDIT: Seems like Valve liked this, so it has already been increased but it still isn't increased to 6 minutes.

    #2: Rewind addon.
    So I think it would be a cool addon if you could rewind in live games, hence the 6 minutes delay it should be possible to make. It would be nice for casters who miss the firstblood or just for casual spectators missing important fights or epic arrows etc.
    Suggestion: Live Rewinding


    Hope you like them

    1. I think it was Zoid who said 6 minutes would take a lot of saving space (or whatever the technical term was). He didn't say it was impossible but I guess it would take a lot of work. It's not just about changing a variable like other small problems. But I see your point.

    2. If a caster misses the start of a live-game, he might as well commentate the replay. Personally, I don't see the point in rewinding a live game, doesn't make sense to me. It defeats the purpose of a live-game to the point that the replay would be more usefull.

    1. Sure, but you can still ghost with 30 seconds.

    2. I don't mean the start of the game, but maybe a important kill that the caster misses in the middle of the game.

    I think you're missing the point of the beta.

    I think 30secs is enough in pubs, though in tournament yes it should be increased to 6:05 mins, just to be sure

    +1 on Number 1

    And also add number 2, but this was suggested before I guess.

    definitely delay time has to be increased, but i wouldn't agree on rewind option. (it reminds me too much on TiVo :P), I would rather see match highlights during the pause, or when there is not much action so the shoutcaster can then show it like when watching live football matches.

    Ooh that's a good idea too... doable too
