I must be yeah, indeed.

It's interesting you mention charity, and not voluntary.

My English is not really good but in my country we have two separate words for two different meanings of "doing something for free".

One is indeed chartity, the other one is more like "getting a personal interest in being a voluntary". Anyway, cultural differences I suppose, or age difference maybe, or even both idk.

I totally understand Azazel... I would quit those guys too if I wouldn't get my money... this is sad as they have some nice price money for winners... but what is that tournament without proper commentating... its pretty bad for viewers to be honest.

I understand too, I can figure out how frustrating it is to be promised some money and be fooled.

On the other hand, I was a bit was disappointed though. Before that I can't remember any time Azael or Conrad mentionned they were actually paid to commentate an online tournament.

I know shoutcasters on the biggest tournaments scenes like LoL or SC2 are paid. But... As a naive person, I really thought both of them were just interested in promoting the game before actually getting paid for shoutcasting. Or just to get a free ticket for Blizzcon (and then getting money from Blizzard, obviously) or stuff like that. In fact, I find a bit embarassing that the organizing team is getting paid for such an online event. I mean, I think it's a noxious atmosphere. Get a job to get money, then play the game, shoutcast, organize tournaments for your pleasure. I think ppl actually gravitating around WoW and the esport scene for money aren't healthy for the game.

I must be wrong or have a complete biased view of the situation idk, but alot of ppl in this world take part in a lot of events for free, just because they love to do so and promote their activity.

So basically yeah, he got scammed by organizers and doesn't diserve it AT ALL cause he has done an amazing job over the years but I find the manipulation "#boycott" "#payazael" a bit misplaced, inappropriate even a bit embarassing tbh. I feel like I got scammed too, listening to these guys for years, promoting these tournament among my online friends "see, they're doing that for free man, and they're doing great". Anyway...

Great topic thanks for sharing, I really want to try the dispel MC (or deep freeze, or anything else) with MD thingy !

Another thing to notice even though it's not a trick and it's obvious when you think about it :
- Your lightwell heals friendly targets, it means it's gonna heal an opponent with low hp if you MC him in the 40yd range of lightspring.

The feeling when it happens is akward :\

"Oh f*ck I'm stupid !"

In Topic: GC & Holinka live interview and ArenaLeague finals

^  very good post.

Something I was wondering about too, completely off the interview's topic but regarding interest in tournaments.

What about rebroadcasts ?

They do this with Starcraft 2 and go even further with having viewers voting for their favorite matches and so on.

WoW lacks a hall of fame. You have to dig into YouTube and recall the name of tournament and teams to find the matches you're interested in.

We gonna see this with ArenaLeague once again... Once the tournament is over we gonna recall the name of the winner team, and... That's all. There were some good games this year at Yaspresents for instance, it's painful to find the game you liked on YouTube.

What Hilde did with "great arena moments : MLG XXXX" was a good start.

In a perfect world, YouTube VoDs would be integrated in challonge, in an awesome world, a caster alone in a studio would be presenting the context of games and interact with viewers (votes and stuff like that).

The news says :

"On the ArenaJunkies stream we invited top players to discuss the interview afterwards. So far Zilea and Novoz are confirmed as guests."
So I guess they gonna come AFTER the interview so he'll not "have a go at GC & Holinka" but is just gonna commentate about what they said.

Anyway, really looking forward the interview.
Hope they won't hide behind "it's not our decision it's Blizzard e-sport's division". Please don't let them dodge that question so easily.

Vanguards is a good interviewer, but I always feel like (it's just purely subjective and I hope I'm wrong) he's kinda related somehow to the people he's interviewing. You have to be an interviewer ! Not just someone asking the questions they need to answer to or want to communicate about !

Please both Vanguards & Hildegard, be harsh with them for once, don't turn this into a flat Q/A interview as you sometimes did. Discuss ! Argue !

I know you have to be grateful to them cause they're nice to offer that opportunity etc. But... Their decision is completely stupid and if you look on Twitter, the official news, US and EU forums you'll see ppl actually are pissed and don't understand why.
