1. The spectator UI makes the streams really boring to watch imo

2. No azael = no amazing commentary. Conrad works well off his knowledge of the game. Vhell can only make boring general statements

3. The breaks in between the EU regionals were good b/c they were relatively short and consisted of intelligent and accurate analysis of the game. In these super long breaks, its just vhell saying random/nostalgic shit and boring as fuck. Vhell is taking the lead and he dosent have the present knowledge to say anything good about the games

4. EU regionals would show the players before the matches, and between games show them talking to their teammates. That was entertaining to watch.

U.S regionals is a letdown so far. Hope it picks up

Vhell has been an amazing commentator in the past, but im sure in this circumstance he was just making the best of the situation. It seemed they had quite a bit of technical difficulties getting certain cameras going or starting matches and he was just trying to fill the void as best he could.

Yeh.., I still wouldn't do it. There's playing 3dps to showcase how easy it is / Playing it and thinking you're good because you can mash a pve rotation into the shaman / And then there's playing it in a tournament because you know you don't deserve your place in the tournament and you know it counts everything.

Vhell has NEVER been good. Since the start of MLG I could not stand him. To me it sounds like he is talking out of his ass the whole time while knowing little to nothing about 70% or  of the classes. To me he is a horrible commentator and should not be. Now I am not saying I could do better however there are better commentators than him FAR better and for big tournament like this they should be able to find much better.
