Replays can be obtained from the results feed as well as in the individual bot pages.
Note: Watching replays on Linux is highly dependent on your setup and therefore outside the scope of these instructions, but these might still serve as a helpful reference.
- Download a replay file.
- The maps used are different from the battle.net ones.
Ensure you have the relevant map downloaded and installed from the maps page (see how to install maps).
- (MacOS Only) Start Starcraft 2 through the Battlenet app. This way the game won't ask you to log in before showing the replay.
- Double-click the replay file. Starcraft 2 will play the replay.
- Once you are finished watching, issue
ALT+F4 (Windows) or
CMD+Q (MacOS) and click yes to the prompt to exit.
