I was wondering about the community’s thoughts on choosing the viewpoint during replays. Found a similar topic here but it hasn’t really seen much traffic as far a discussion. Is there a specific design reason for not being able to switch between players’ hands? I see no detriment to the game being able to learn from both players.
Of course with the new spectate mode, if you could see both players’ hands it would be possible to inform your friend in a chat of the other player’s cards.
Edit: because I’m an idiot!

I think it would be simple (notwithstanding the coding effort) to be able to click on each player’s avatar to switch viewpoint.
I’m sure I may have missed some concerns in this short post, so feel free to help me out.
P.S. I hope my friends do not wish to learn anything from my matches, because I’m pretty sure I would be a horrible role model.
