Please use an appropriate signature; thanks! Use only common abbreviations and acronyms, and then give their definition as soon after their first use as possible. Occasionally, however, an abbreviation or acronym may be so familiar to intended audiences that it may be used without a definition. In fact, some may be more familiar than the full name. http://www.arenajunk...-rules-2272014/

I can't recall the order of events, but every time hydra had to play there was drama one way or another. And this last forfeit is just a slap in the face of the organisers/everyone who is watching. Truly hope that any future tournaments have learned from this and either just skip him when inviting teams, or make him pay some sort of deposit that he gets back when everything happens in a normal way (no forfeits, no drama, etc). The way he acted is just plain annoying and disrespectful for everyone watching.

All the issues with reject comp need to be addressed before they play again, It's making the tournament look bad. Whether all their issues are their fault or not, pretty much every problem with the tournament falls on one name.

I'm never one to flame anyone, but I cannot believe how much drama surrounds one person.  Just because he's good doesn't mean it should be tolerated - please don't invite him again.  He cheats whenever he can (putting up fear ward super early) and then complains when they call him on it.  Azael talked about it yesterday about how the pick/ban system NEVER fails for anyone else, yet somehow it's happened TWICE to this team.  Pretty sick of them ruining the tourney.

Otherwise tourney has been getting better every week, yipz is a great commentator choice to join Azael.

I'm starting to get second thoughts about the banning system. To me it often feels like watching Barca vs Real Madrid, where Messi and Ronaldo are benched, or both play goalie. For once that might be fun/interesting, and their team mates are all phenomenal players, but over the course of a whole Champions League I prefer to see as much Messi and Ronaldo action as possible.

And a few weeks in, the banning got quite predictable  since most of the time there is an optimal way. And it hurts the _non_ top teams much harder than the star teams if their best player consistently gets banned.Still the banning offers a lot of positive things as well. But with a few little tweaks it could be far more interesting.

My suggestion: [u]a team that has won a best of 3 series can't pick the 2 specs they have banned in the last series as their first ban for the new series[/u].

For example:
- team A bans ele/feral and wins 2-0 vs team B. who banned ele/feral
- for the next series team A can't pick ele nor feral as their first ban
- team B can pick ele/feral as their first ban
- team A can chose ele or feral for their second ban

Another thing that bothers me a little bit are the fake specs that teams have listed. An incentive could be to award 1 extra point (once the round 1 brackets are completed) to the teams where every player has played the specs they listed, throughout the whole tournament.

I put the time for Saturday wrong in this thread. Heard Zunniyaki did show up late and Cara really late because of that. Sorry, it was a copy&paste error (Russian start is 19:00).

in all honesty rylez isnt that bad tbh he actually does a good job commentating. It is insanely hard to commentate for an english audience if you language isnt english. I guess the only annoying thiing about him is his voice, it just isnt a caster voice

This isn't a flame post just an opinion.

Today was the worst day so far of this tournament. Rylez was improving greatly, especially since his first language isnt english but now it's just gone down the toilet, also what the fuck is up with the music? really expected more considering it's a $30k tournament. You want to improve and stop getting people chatting shit, stop doing shit like that.

The random stuff aswell like cookie party? really it doesnt work for you, try to not speak so fast aswell, of course you have to be on top of the situation but you're speaking way to fast.

Hilde you have the knowledge of the spells etc but imo commentating isnt for you (personal opinion) but +1 for making the effort.

I'd also advise if you can find it, try to see if you can get a hold of someone with experience or better pronunciation of words, with no disrespect to Rylez, it makes the experience quite dreadful.

Also the organisation done by some commentators is just better, if it helps Rylez just write it down on a piece of paper next to your keyboard or whatever style of setup you have a list of steps, like make sure ui is hidden, mic isn't muted, sound is as best as it can be etc etc basic shit man.

tldr; Rylez was awful at the start, improved midway and then it went to shit today.

I want to start off and say that after coming back to wow more often recently I am absolutely excited to see this kind of tournament happening and at least having 5k+ viewers (at least when I see it). Id really like to see some kind of display to be informative and also cover up some of the inner-workings of setting up the spec UI and Stormwind.

Having maybe a scoreboard of the teams and maybe a schedule along with music could be cut to during downtime between matches and while the observer UI is being setup (with deaths and putting the right characters in the nameplates). I know it is work especially with different people commentating daily but I feel like it would help with the flow of the tournament as well as making it feel a little less backyard-ish and more professional. Also it would help relieve the casters of exceptionally long and extended talking sessions between games where there might be delays and they are trying to fill time.

I feel like the casting is getting better and better and I hope things continue to get better! Just thought I would add my two cents and I'm sorry if my suggestion has been talked about forever.
