[Feature Request] Unit Killer/Location

Posts: 53
Moved here from github[1] since this seems like a more appropriate location.

The UnitDiedEvents would be much more useful if their data was extended by an optional killing unit tag and location.

Example:
Zergling [B1A0005] (16,20) death at game_loop 2120
killed by SeigeTank [E130002] (17,22) owned by Player 2

We could even drop the killing player id since it can be derived from the killing unit.

This extra information would allow us to do much deeper engagement analysis!

Hmm, I see that posts like this may be against the guidelines. If the OP is generally considered a good and reasonable idea I could see the majority of posts to be +1s.

Petition posts are frowned upon
These are discussion forums, and as such we ask that you hold discussions. Creating a thread to ask for replies as votes is not a discussion. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion.

Can the mods provide some guidance here? With the introduction of tracker events into the replay it seems like there should be a way for the community to suggest ideas for future patches. In some sense, this may be similar to the balance suggestion/idea threads in the other forums.

I'll echo the request. This is a VERY key statistic that would unlock a LOT of interesting analysis. Please look into making this available!
