Now, could we get some numbers on the extra read and writes it needs to do on the players hdd/ssd to always have that replay thing on?

It would just be positional and action data most of which they would probably collect anyway.

There is almost no chance that it does any of the work client side.

How the heck did this patent get approved? o.O The patent seems to literally be "To find the play of the game, you go through the game plays and find the subjectively best one on the basis of situationally defined criteria" which shouldn't in any way meet the requirements for novelty >.> Since that's literally what a play of the game is, a universally known concept well before OW became a thing >.>
