It should be obvious how you lost, particularly with OP's in play. Replays are barely accurate, anyway. Add ing them to war would only result in more misinformed complaints to support about cheating
Sorry, buddy, but I do not agree... War Replays are necessary like PvP Replays. Not many players really know how to use certain units or take advantage of the advantage of owning some OPs. It is extremely exhausting for anyone, leader or officer during wars to have to write in the chat how their members must attack certain bases every war.
Not everyone uses LINE or another chat app to exchange information, prints, strategies, and as DS has remembered, recording videos of attacks is hard for beginning users, and it takes time to upload a video and share it online.
It seems a lie, but I see many players in their first wars do not know they can bomb a SC out of the shield, or use A-Wing to destroy a shield over SC and then bomb it. The same goes for using Kessen to destroy an SC inside the shields, and so on.
I am a great attacker in wars, and I really miss war replays when I need to teach someone how he should attack a particular rival. In my last war as Rebel with a HQ 8 I took 3 links of 1 HQ 10 and 3 links of a 1 HQ 9 easily and the way I tried to say how it should be done having the advantage of Yavin and Tatooine when other players at level 9 have failed against these same bases, which is frustrating.
I agree in part with Boog that replays could flood the chat if everyone started sharing replays of all their attacks. But this also happens for Replays in PvP. There are players who share several Replays at once. That is not the case here. It is up to the leader and his officers to teach their members when they should share replays or not.
Share Replays when there is relevant information or to teach a new technique or a different strategy. I always tell my colleagues, do not flood the chat with generic replays. But we're talking about War Replays, they do not have to be the same as PvP Replays. There does not have to be a Battle Log for war attacks, so what I suggest to the Devs - if any of them are reading this now - is this:
Make War Replays available only as attacker and never as defender.
You do not need to know how the rival destroyed your base at 100%, and this would avoid many allegations of cheating, and is not necessary when some OPs are available like Takodana or Tatooine. But when you share replays of your attacks, you're not showing off how a SWC badass you are, but teaching your members correct strategies and helping the next attacker if you have not gotten all 3 uplinks.
