Do you fast forward entire matches? If yes how do you know that you should watch them slowly?

As the title said. I normally fast forward all matches and I rewatch them slowly if:

- I lose for obvious reason. (not if I lose by a tactic that is effective but I do not want to counter, like my first 2 weeks of alpha 6.13. with set your priorities played like starving)
- one or more of my bot got destroyed.
- one or more of my bots survived with very low health although winning.
- a resource that should have been more contested was snatched by the enemy too easily.
- I got pushed too much .

Obviously this means that I may overlook over and over (until it costs me a lot) few bugs there and there. Like my shotgun for tens of matches took and release the resource instead of bringing it home. But was too quick for me to see.

I fast forwards every match unless
  • A bot dies in a non obvious way that isn't already known about (although this bot's death must have contributed to my loss)
  • A solution to a known problem seems to show itself in that match and I want to analyze it
  • I want to gloat to myself

I fast forward all matches but go back to watch in more detail only if something unexpected happened.
1) I beat someone significantly higher ranked then myself
2) I lost to someone significantly lower ranked then myself
3) I lost more bots then normal for the given map
4) The match went on past the 3 minute mark
