In this GDC 2020 virtual talk Wargaming Sydney's Andrew Glover sets out to educate developers about the potential problems and solutions of integrating a server-side record and replay system into a multiplayer game.
To illustrate his talk Glover relied on examples culled from his experience integrating a similar system into World of Tanks: Mercenaries on console, walking devs through the ins and outs of implementation.
It was an illuminating talk with lots of practical examples, and if you missed seeing it live you can now watch it completely free over on the official GDC YouTube channel!
