    Lightbulb [Suggestion]Live game/replay filter, rating, sort by option|caster language filter

    Watch filters, sort possibilitys (some features are meant to be used for replays, some for live games, some for both)

    The thread is meant to discuss about weather the features should be implemented or not and how it could/should be done.

    DotA is huge, but split up in many platforms/communities, DotA 2 will be huge, but luckily not split up. That means the amount of games fans can spectate live or as replays will be enormous, a good filter system is key to help everyone find the best matches, the games they want to see. Failing to achieve such a system will frustrate the fans and drive em to third party replay/vod homepages and split the community once again.

    Player, heroes
    - filter by, need additional player and hero slots(up to 5, to let ppl search for whole lineups)
    - filter by, need the an AND/OR option, to let ppl search for bunch of heros/fav-players OR specific lineups
    - it need a sort option, sort by views/ranking/rating
    - views/ranking/rating should be displayed there as numbers, especially views
    - it need an option for a set of hand picked replay / esports fans to put a short text description under the replays to state what makes them extra special, IF they are extra special. A rating alone will not be enough to point out all types of interesting matches.
    - There also should be a check button “exclude watched” in the filter options, if checked viewers should only have replays displayed they havent see yet, that way they not only can easialy keep track of which games of a cup are remaining, they also do not need to hit the “next button" 10 times to come to the final game. The “exclude watched” check button should be avaible regardless if the viwer has the “anti-spoiler” option enabled or not.


    Caster, language
    - filter by caster, include/exclude option, to find the replays of a fav caster or to ignore the hated (it will generate more love and less hate, because ppl will not watch casters they dont like not too often by accident)
    - there should be an info about all casters and languages of a given game(as there is info about heros and players), just to show the viewers what to expect inside the match if they decide to watch it(and didnt filter before)
    - filter by language, not everyone and especially young folks understand English
    - it need a sort option, sort by views/ranking/rating
    - views/ranking/rating should be displayed there as numbers, especially views
    - such a filter and ranking system will favor already accomplished casters, because casters come and go its VERY important to support the new blood as much as possible to keep them going. And to keep them going they need as much exposure and feedback from the community as possible. A set of experts which like to hear casts and watch replays should hand pick new caster talents and put them with a short text description on a “featured” list, next or under the main cast list, visible for everyone regardless of their filter settings.

    views/ranking/rating should be displayed there as numbers, especially views
    The main thought behind this idea is, the bigger the viewer number of top matches, the more viewers will be attracted to dota2 games in the future. Huge and visible viewer numbers will make gamers talk about them in forums/chats/social media, fighting their fights, dota2>xyz, and so on. Huge viewer numbers will get the attention of esports/gaming homepages, make them write articles about this phenomenon, attracting more and most importantly different and new types of people. Causing a positive snowball effect. Making free but priceless marketing for dota2.

    To make all that features work unique names(or something other) are necessary, the progamers change their names for fun all too often, neglecting many of the filter/sort settings for the fans.

    e:
    Rating should be done by the community/viewers, either in the replay menu or during the watch of the replay/live game thru an ingame rate option.
    Ranking = avarage skill ranking of the players participated in that match

    there should be max/min length settings so allow ppl the search for specific type of games

    e5:
    there should be an "kills" filter option, to give ppl the opportunity to filter for action packed/gang heavy games
    - either as a raw number, e.g. filter out and show games with above 60 kills(this one obv only work if ppl are able to setfilters for gamelength)
    - or as KPM setting, 2 kills per minute is an action packed game, without any gamelength information(what is a spoiler, so u want to avoid it knowing it if u love dota)

    having IDs or "URLS" give fans the opportunity to share games with each other much easier. An list of search parameters just to recomend a replay/live game would make games kinda unshareable.

    Specifically, I'm thinking of the following:
    • Searching by Steam Community profile URL. For when you want the replays of a player with a common name or someone that changes their name often.
    • Own games. A history of your own games, excluding anyone that might use the same name as yourself.
    • All friends' games. Instead of searching for a single player, this would show the games that any of your friends have played in.
    • Bookmark player/replay. For when you want to find something again easily.

    there should be RR (recommended replays) and replay of the week, sorted by rate.
    RR are very useful for tournament for example, viewers rate it with 1-5 stars/thumbs/whatever and after/while the tournament u got rankings.

    viewcount would be also pretty nice.

    I think this is a really great idea and should be done, searching replays/watching live games would be much easier and better.

    T-Up I love this suggestion:

    Especially the difference between rank and viwer rating. Allows you to catch some Lower Level games, that went awesome in some way or another.

    I would also love if it would allow to filter for organized 5v5 games or matchmaking games etc.
