Known Issues

Video Editor:
You can only add a timestamped drawing if you include text.
Drawing tools are basic. We’ll make them look better, promise.
The mobile experience is not fully supported; we recommend you stick with desktop for the best experience.
Lesson Setup: There’s no way to set a minimum number of matches to be reviewed (for example, if you want student only to send 3+ matches for you to review at one time).
Student Dashboard: Completed Replay Reviews do not appear at the top of the Dashboard to inform students when the review was completed by their coach.
After a Replay Review has been completed and delivered to the student, coaches and students are not informed when additional comments are posted.

What wording should I use to set up my Replay Review lesson type?
Here are some recommendations to get your started, but put this in your own voice.
Lesson Title:
“Replay Reviews” should work - or whatever you think connects with your audience for your game
Also consider “Replay Reviews - Beta,” so your students know to expect some bugs.
Delivery Time: Set a time that fits with your typical schedule. Also, consider whether you want to encourage your students to send just one match at a time, or multiples. If you want several matches, make sure your Delivery Time reflects this.
“You upload replays of your matches. I’ll review each match with timestamped comments and screen markups to show tips, where you did well, and areas for improvement.
You can help me out in a couple of ways:
Add your own comments in the video before submitting with any areas you want me to focus on.
If you are sending a single, continuous video with lots of matches, please timestamp the beginning of each match you want me to review.
Possible addition, if relevant to how you want to batch your work: “Please only send me three or more matches to review at a time. If you only purchase and submit fewer than that, I will message you and we may need to redo the booking.”

How should I price my Replay Reviews?
Think about how much time a typical review will take for you, and how long a match for your game might take. For example:
A Super Smash Bros. Ultimate match might last five minutes, and you might take a total of 10 minutes watching the video and adding comments/markups. How much is 10 minutes of your time worth??
A League of Legends match might last 45 minutes. Because there is some dead time, but also you will spend time on comments/markups, it may still end up taking ~45 minutes to complete a Replay Review of one match. How much is 45 minutes of your time worth??
Also, feel free to to reach out and we can help advise you on setting pricing for this based on your live coaching options. We got you. 🤜🤛
