Speaking of replays, the video operators have a lot of responsibility now. With a screen this big, they'll be able to influence the officiating process by highlighting items of interest during replay feeds:


The real story of the day however was the board's ability to stay on point during meta testing:


After seeing this board in action, all we can say about it is:
