I can answer you immediately. Yes.
Every game that have intention to call it's self "Pro-Game" needs to have Replays.
So on the Road Map to Pro Game Replays are on the first step. The rest is optional, but will increase the interest of Teams, friends, players.
Spectating a friend match.
Watching a Pro-Match inside Game.
Reconnect to a game if connection was lost ( I think you got that sorry )
Those are the things now in Pro-Games. About Unit Tests, I assume that is for the Programmers to decide. Are you talking about Code Unit Tests? Naturally they are very good in programing but this is not something for the community to decide.
If some one still asks why Replays? You have never really played Pro Game/ Managed Team or so on. Having replays is a MUST not a future for a Pro Game. Just point me a Pro game that don't have them

So, devs... any ETA on Spectator Mode and/or Replays? I'd love to hear more about the current status of this, as to whether I can expect it any time soon.
Isn't the ability already coded in there or is the tournament setup on Twitch separate software not made by Turbine?
Don't let common sense stop you.

What exactly is a unit tester?
ETA? Not at this time. While they are obviously all great ideas (and ones that we've talked about internally), there are some technical hurdles that we need to first overcome before we can begin to consider rolling out a version of spectator mode or replays.
When we get closer to finding a solution though, y'all will hear about it from us quite loudly.

So, about that Spectator Mode and those Replays... any more news? ETAs? I look forward to being able to host tournaments and the like, and without it, that's a no-go other than things like the 1v1 tourney...
