    New multiplayer stuff is great. Been using the group replay option, but never knew of the “take command” option though. This is going to be awesome. Other features would improve eSports and casting. Perhaps the new “recover game” feature was placed to phase out the LAN enabled version of SC2 (heavily guarded by Blizzard) used in current tournaments.

    take command and recover from replay is the same feature repeated two times, and is not knew and technology advanced, there is a game called bos wars, it’s unfinished in terms of development. when you play an replay and it end automatically you are in game mode again. so not impressive second time, in last 24h, blizzard.
