Submit Your Replays To Be Casted At The Finals

Finding Your Replays

Within the SC2AIApp folder, there is another folder called “Replays” your replays will be located there!

  • Rename your replay to include your league– Example : CaerwynvMicroMachine-2000atmosphere_Gold. This helps with choosing games to be casted

 

  • Please also include games you lose, the bots know how many games they’ve played :wink:
