I'm glad some red came around and said this. I've been saying ever since spectator mode was announced that it was the first step in getting actual replays. First step: Create a system where the server stores game information and allows people to view it as the game is taking place. Next step: Have that system save the data and transmit it to the people after the game is finished.
Everyone called me mad, but we all see who's mad now.
