I try to replay some of the files. But the game stays logging in forever. I replayed before files and was working perfect.

its impossible to replay old saves?

The only way is to make a copy of WoWs directory with every patch.

ok... im too late for that... any place to get old directories??

Unfortunately there is not such place. However I download lately a few old installers and patches from torrents (but they are very hard to find) and with manually patching is possible to restore a lot of old versions. At least one was probably with virus or was false positive, so beware.

For standalone or WGC installations, yes, if you wish to watch replays of old you have to make a full copy of the game folder for each main patch (i.e., if the version numbers are like 0.X.Y.Z then every time the Y changes). I've been continuously doing so from 0.6.3.x onwards (and some previous ones too) because storage capacity isn't an issue for me, but it can be for others (using 1.8TB at the moment if memory serves right). It's an interesting tip what @Puffin_ pointed out about the Steam install.

They're usually saved in /replays or in /bin64/replays within the game installation folder. AFAIK, they can't be played by us users with anything but the game client, but WG has some kind of analytical tool that is able to for sure, since replayswows.com reads them in order to show you the achievements and upgrades' builds of every single battle participant.

 

Salute.
