Mucked Hands at Showdown

We're strongly considering removing this feature.

The History:

1. Online was like live poker, and a player could muck their hand at showdown and no one knew what they had.
2. Sites put mucked showdown hands in text hand histories on the player's computer. Players enjoy this data both for hand-reading as well as ensuring no collusion is taking place.
3. Sites put mucked showdown hands in the replayer.
4. 3rd-party software read the hand histories and displayed the mucked showdown hands on the table a second after showdown.

ACR currently has mucked hands in the text file and in the replayer. However, many players (mostly recreational players) do not know this exists.

We're strongly considering displaying all showdown hands at the table at the moment of showdown. There would no longer be a muck showdown hand feature.

What are your thoughts?

What's the debate here? Gives rec players more info and also allows everyone to forgo the time spent having to click on replayer every time there's a showdown. Seems like a no-brainer to me
