Watching Replays with Friends Online

General Discussion

This is more of a suggestion than anything... but wouldn't it be great to be able to share replays with your friends w/o having to email them or upload them? There are countless times were I'd love to show a friend a replay, but the hassle of uploading/downloading, etc often leaves me with the thought of, "why bother?"

Anyway, what plans does Blizzard have to integrate this concept? Its not a new idea but I haven't found anything on it since Beta.
Bumping to get some thoughts on this.
I would be interested in this. I doubt it'll be something implemented because youtube is so prevalent and people can basically highlight what they want and say "Look at x:xx" and that'll be that. It would be cool to have something like this that you could watch other people play at random though. I know custom games can have observers, but not latter matches and the like which would be more interesting.
I agree. They should put shared replay viewing in. Didn't they have it in BW?
They don't have time to worry about that when most of the replays don't even work in the first place.

This is a functionality we're interested in providing our players at some point in the future. :)

Will this be before or after you introduce chat channels and redo the way custom games are displayed?
It should be out now. Along with chat channels.

Way to force your way in, I know i'm likely feeding a troll, but custom chat doesn't need to be added(and is not a priority), and while Custom Games should be sorted by type(like in folders by type ;), these issues ARE NOT BEING DISCUSS HERE


They should be discussed everywhere, because they're the biggest things wrong with the game experience. Until these issues are fixed, I'm going to respond to every Blue post with that question somewhere in my response. If we let this get slipped under the rug, then Activision wins. Do you want Activision to win?
Viewing replays with friends would be a welcomed feature.
I feel like the addition of observers in many of the standard Blizzard maps was a great thing! But the removal of replay viewing seems like a step back. Hopefully we will see a patch soon; I like discussing my replays with my peers.
Being able to browse the top players replays within battle net would just be BOMB!

well at least now i can technically add this to the list of "things that are coming within the next 10 years".

how hard is it to allow you to host a custom game with a replay file instead of a map anyway?? seemed to work just fine in SC1...
Patch 1.08 forever!

Here's hoping we get just as much in patch 1.02. Blizzard can do it!

Couldn't we do this back in SC? :O I love all the removed functionality!
