You're not going to have any good commentators for World of Warcraft, all the good commentators with years of experience is commentating games that actually has an e-sport environment like League of Legends, Starcraft, DOTA, CS:GO etc.
Secondly I doubt you would even be able to be anywhere near as good as Supatease or Azael when it comes to commentating.
I saw your reply to Dizzeeyo, and yes you can give them constructive criticism, but saying somebody is absolutely terrible and that you'd consider killing yourself after listening to supatease for 30 minutes isn't constructive in anyway.
What you should of said is - He missed that they did X thing and he should have mentioned X, but you don't, why? Probably because you're way to retarded to actually point out the crucial mistakes out, you just jump the hate train basically.
Oh, and let's give you some of your own medicine, You're a fucking terrible warrior, you're stuck on 2.6k rating when the rating is inflated just as much as back in WOTLK and Early Cata, so shut the fuck up for once you fucking inbred.
1. A large number of people play this game, if the opportunity was there and Blizzard endorsed it, they would find much better commentators than the 2 aforementioned.
2. Ofcourse? It's an awful argument to say you cannot criticize someone over something you're not able, or presume they're not able to do, for all you know I could be a brilliant commentator, Blizzard offers nothing in the way of allowing me to prove myself to them
, and both Azeal and Supatease are self made commentators.
3. I never said my criticism was constructive, either. Just honest and blunt. Neither of them would be commentating had there been natural born commentators who want to commentate and have been given the opportunity by blizzard to commentate
. Neither of them have good commentating voices, Azeal has a strong regional accent and speaks far to fast, Supatease has a very monotone voice.
Supatease, as i have mentioned, has an awful droning monotone voice which he doesn't protest, which is awful for commentating. Listening to his highlights as he linked doesn't help, Listening to the awful dry commentating of the last Yaspresents (skype-less games) really nailed the last coffin in wow commentating. People would at this point in time, rather hear the teams communicating over the commentator communicating the game to them
. That is a bad sign.
Neither Azeal or Supatease would be offered a job to commentate any other game, be it E-sport, or sport. Particularly Azeal on the front his commentating is hurt by how biased he is towards teams he particularly likes. I watch the world cup on the BBC because the commentators are paid to at least sound non-bias. However hearing him in the PvP-live tournament during the games Nadagast played, particularly Vs. Dillypoo, was not good commentating. He spoke about how nice of a guy Nadagast was, how he deserved to win, and didn't accurately convey how hard the match was for the KFC. That along with the 4x mistakes in the Jahmilli games, which im afraid is in-excusable, but partly the fault of blizzards awfully outdated tournament UI
really took a professional edge of the tournament. How does a commentator who has played the game for 7-8 years forget about Shattering throw, miss the cast bar, in a mage v warrior game 4x?
4. I don't get what you're trying to say? It doesn't take an in depth breakdown to find the mistakes, they jump out at you. Commentators make mistakes everyday, in football it's usual they might give the wrong name etc, and I'll even give it for supatease at the Yaspresents tournament who called Nolifer, "Morchen" for the game vs. Volta (even though there is only six names to remember) However if i was to sit through it and pinpoint every mistake, i imagine it would be littered.
Edit: Removed any insults / rating bashing / class bashing, would like to talk about the topic, not the people behind the posts
