First, let me say that I love the idea of the competitive season, it's a great idea as the game is well suited to it and it helps keep the mp community going.
But it strikes me as mind-boggling that there is still no replay system as this goes in hand in hand with any competitive scene in gaming, can anyone name me a game that has a thriving competitive scene without replays and people casting them because I can't think of one. A replay system would not only give a good area for finding and discussing new strats and getting invested in the game but also allow content creators to bring in new players. I have seen multiple content creators drop this game over time with a few i know fairly well such as Janet on occasion, who had videos going over 150k views and actually really enjoyed the game however without a replay system making content was to time consuming/ exhausting with mp matches needing to be casted as he was playing them which considering with any RTS finding a match worthwhile can take all night you can see the issue when other games are just easier to do. This will also bring more players to mp as I always notice after a content players put out a vid that gets a bunch of views the player base spikes and mp desperately needs that atm as the player base is small.
Absolutely love this game and think the dev team have done an overall stellar job but a few things like this need to be added to complete the game.
We have some of the few YouTubers who still cover this game desperate for this change and arguably the largest AirsickHydra has stated that he would love to host community casts and tournaments for free which would be such a good thing for the game to have:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ncz_v85Z0Ec&t=0s
