He really isn't. He is ALWAYS yelling into the mic like someone is about to die while they are sitting at like 60% or more misses like half of the shit going on.

I'm sorry but Woundman has no business playing in this tournament. It's pretty sad watching them play. A winless RLS :/

Vhell is a great commentator, people saying he doesn't know what he's talking about don't know what theyre talking about. He's been commentating for years, long before these little online tournaments like NAO, I honestly think someone like Hoodrich with Vhell instead of Conrad would be a better combo than having Conrad who constantly talks about how he is so buddy buddy with the Team EG players and how he's R1 in 5s every season, that kinda gets old to me. Conrad is very entertaining commentating the online tournaments with Azael but he is completely different at live events and isn't as funny as usual. Also Vhell's commentary caters more to the novice viewer (which most of the people watching are novice)  #Vhell best commentator and a great WoW e-sports supporter. Stop hating on him, he's doing a great job

What I don't understand is why they didn't play with shaman, obviously would've worked much much better vs most comps in this tournament ;/ I rooted for all hunter teams but damn:(

I can't help but think if Tosan went as thug they would be doing so much better than as MLP >:|.

just because he has been doing it for a long time does NOT mean he is good at it and as for him catering  to the "novice" viewers HE misses half the shit going on and I can not stand it commentators like azael are 100times better for a "novice" viewer compared to vhell.

I disagree. Azael is a great commentator though for sure, but even he misses stuff sometimes

maybe I am just a fan boy but I feel like vhell is pretty bad at being a commentator and I wish that they would find someone better oh well.

Most likely the break up with Metaphors shortly before the start of the tournament caused Topgun to play less well.

He is talking about PHD not the Thugcleave.
