Thread: replay timer - actual time left

    replay timer - actual time left

    When watching a replay, I would love to see the actual attack time remaining and not just the replay time remaining. Many times, the thing that makes a particular replay exciting is how close it came to a time fail. There is no way to see this currently.

    Replay time +X = 3 minutes (time allotted)

    huh? are you trying to say that it can be inferred? even full 3-minute attacks will vary in replay time because the attacker can use 0-30 seconds before attacking. and even if it could be inferred, you would just “know” beforehand and the replay itself would not capture the drama of the actual attack. this request is as much (more actually) about entertainment value as it is for the actual data point.

    Me too, very much. So often, I have to restart the replay to see whether they were close to time or not.

    As soon as you drop the 1st troop the 3 minute time begins.
    So, when you begin a replay you can see how much time it took for your attack.
    For example, if the replay is 2 minutes 30 seconds long, but you notice that the first troop was dropped after 5 seconds, then your attack was 2 minutes 25 seconds.
    Subtract that from 3 minutes, and you get 35 seconds.

    this would be an awesome change. when watching a replay with the current system the clock is uninteresting, so i usually don’t pay much attention to it.

    I agree. Id love that.

    At the moment you can tell if replay ended earlier then 3 minutes or how long it took since first second of watching it. After the count down starts you can see replay duration. For example 2 minutes and 35 seconds. Would be great if it was showing 3 minutes counting backwards and just stop at the end at 25 seconds, same as it is when its a live attack (the timer).
