I understand you guys want as little dead air time as possible but I feel like the amount of air time you dedicate to "ddos" is really hurting your broadcast.
It's a WoW tournament that we're organizing and putting people in groups for. What would you suggest we do while teams are getting ddosed and we, ourselves, are trying to solve it?
- It makes you look unprofessional and incompetent. I don't care if it is or isn't an ACTUAL dos attack on someone that is causing them to d/c, but constantly refering to it just makes it look like you guys don't know what you're doing and are at the mercy of some 15 year old script kiddies. Stop that.
I'm sorry that the actions of others are causing us to look unprofessional and incompetent. It isn't a coincidence that 6/8 teams that played were disconnecting constantly after the 45s mark, while d/cing from skype and going robot mode before hand. As for the 15 year old comment, yes, it is possible that a 15 year old can be doing this. That's the issue. But despite most players changing their skype/IP, some players are unable to do so. Some went out and purchased new routers/modems/whatever in order to be able to not get DDOSed, yet they were.
- IF it is actually a person or persons DOSing crysalid etc, DO NOT GIVE THEM RECOGNITION BY CONSTANTLY TALKING ABOUT IT ON STREAM. Especially conrad, cannot help himself constantly trying to poke fun at these "people" while they're accomplishing what they want. Azael said it once yesterday "Stop talking about it, that's what they want." and yet you guys continue to do it. Just stop! If it is irrelevant to you and you don't mention it on stream, THEY GET NO RECOGNITION AND IT BECOMES BORING TO THEM. STOP GIVING THEM CREDIT.
You're probably right here, but the general public wants to know what's happening. People are spamming "DDOS" in chat anyway, so it's not like it's a huge secret.
- Finally I'll have to input this even though it's futile. You guys sound like toll noobs calling it DDOS. It's a dos attack, and the phrase is "I'm getting dos'd, or I'm dosing this noob" etc. Always has been. I don't know who made the term DEEE DAWZ popular (suspect Zilea) but ffs I hate it that the term has caught on on wow.
I am referring to it by the phrase that most people have associated the "dos attack" with.
- Why are you apologizing every 10 seconds on stream? Once here and there is OK but you do it too much. It makes the audience feel as though you OWE them something. You don't. You're providing a free service. Stop being sorry about things beyond your control. A polite "Thanks for bearing with us while we experience technical difficulties" is professional and all you need to say.
Some people just joining us may be wondering why they are watching two people sitting their typing furiously and not saying anything. I think it's best to let them know what's happening.
stop talking about deeee dawz and be professional on stream!
Other than that, thanks for the stream, the actual commentating on the match itself is pretty good.
Thank you for the feedback.
