I get that you put a lot of time and money into replays. I get that feeding me other people’s replays requires a server that needs to be paid for. I get that you want to get paid for the work you’ve done. I do not want to pay to “rent” the ability to view my own replays that are stored locally on my own computer. No other fighting game does this, and it’s not a recurring cost, so recurring revenue makes no sense, and quite frankly just makes me angry. Could I please pay a flat rate to have that functionality forever, for my own replays at least? I’m more likely to drop the game due to being unable to view my replays (besides the one window it gives me post-game, if the server didn’t disconnect first) than I am to pay to rent it.
I also understand that this can’t be done overnight, but I hope you folks consider it. I’m just trying to find a reason to give you money, but I’m not paying for temporary replay functionality.
