#3628908 Streaming with Dxtory [GUIDE]

Posted Chromix on 30 January 2012 - 03:58 PM

I know alot of people have problems with fps drops and weird lag when they stream/attempt to stream with XSplit.

Just to clarify, if you have any sort non- latency issues when you try to stream or fraps it's for 99% of the cases a issue with your settings or your hardware.

Streaming requires a lot of CPU power, but really anyone can stream in acceptable quality if you know what you're doing.

To help people out I decided to make a guide for how you can get rid of the annoying XSplit lag (that's most likely caused by your Windows settings) or get better fps in general when you stream. This lag is mostly caused by the way  XSplit records what you're doing - the "screen region" recording

First of all: Dxtory is not a free program, you can find their website here.

You can test the trial for free but you will have a big watermark in the middle of your stream (I think).

There are probably other ways to get a license for it but as with any program, if you like it - buy it (especially if you make money out of streaming).

So what is Dxtory?

Dxtory is similar to fraps, it's a way for you to record your games to your hard drive.

The difference between Dxtory and fraps however is that Dxtory has a DirectShow output which makes you also able to use this for XSplit and streaming.

I will post pictures of every step you have to go through to be able to stream and also comment it with what I'm doing and in some cases why.


Posted Image

This is what Dxtory will look like when you first open it.

If you don't see any text in this window, start/restart your game and it should pop up.


Posted Image

This is similar to Fraps FPS-counter in your top left corner.

You can leave this as default if this doesn't affect your gameplay.

Else just unmark everything here.


Posted Image

Even though you might not want to record to your hard drives and only stream with Dxtory, the program will still ask you to pick a folder in your filesystem where videos will be saved.

You can really pick any folder on your hard drive if you don't want to record videos and just stream.

If you want to record you should pick a folder on a hard drive that isn't the same as where your Windows/WoW is located.

You can also test the speed of your harddrives here, try to pick a folder that is as fast as possible if you want to record.


Posted Image

As you will have to press record to get any sort of output from Dxtory you can here change your record keybind.

Default is F12, I've set mine as * on the numpad.


Posted Image

This is your video output settings.

I recommend using the default codec and settings for it but you can  change the framerate for what suits your PC.

Lower output frame rate = higher fps when you play. I however do not recommend going below 20 FPS since it will make your stream look very choppy.

Check "File output" if you want to record videos to your hard drive.

Check "DirectShow Output" if you're going to stream it.

Since I only stream with my Dxtory I only have DirectShow Output checked.


Posted Image

This is your audio settings, if you're only going to stream you can just uncheck this since XSplit can handle audio recording very well.


Posted Image

These are the advanced settings, here you can select several things I really have no clue about.

Processing threads is the amount of threads from your CPU that will be used.

If you want to read more about what this is you can go to wikipedia.

Since I have a i7 2600K I have the ability to use a max of 8 threads, I don't know if this is optimal or not however.


Posted Image

Now click this button at the bottom (left corner).


Posted Image

This window will pop up. Set your output resolution here.

The higher resolution the more it will require of your PC and less FPS you will have in game.

Try out what resolution suits your PC best and write this here.

Also select same frame rate here as you wish to stream in (affects your performance aswell, see step 5. for more details)

SET THESE SETTINGS TO SAME ON ALL OUTPUTS (Output1, Output2, Output3, Output4).


Posted Image

Now open XSplit, remove all your previous Scene Sources from the list (you don't need to remove pictures etc however).

Go to Add and click Add Camera....


Posted Image

Select Dxtory Video 1


Posted Image

Open World of Warcraft or the game you want to stream in and press your recording hotkey (F12) and your game should show in a corner of your xsplit.

Select one of the corners of this tiny window and drag it out so it fills xsplit.
Change the settings in "View" (marked with red) to the same as your Dxtory output (frame rate, resolution).

13. You're done.

However, I know alot of people have problems and will have problems that the output in XSplit will be in very bad quality and possibly look stretched.

This is an issue with your settings we set when we clicked this button not being "activated".

What you should try if you have this problem is to try adding another Dxtory Video (1, 2, 3 or 4) in XSplit as we did here:

Posted Image

If this doesn't work try to make sure the settings are saved and just experiment with it.

Hope this gives as good results for you as it did for me and my mates.

General thumb rules for streaming:

If you have FPS issues but no latency issues - the problem is your settings.

If you have latency issues but no FPS issues - it's your internet connection.

If you have FPS issues, lower your streaming/output resolution and/or frame rate.

Never go below 20 fps, decrease your resolution instead (personal opinion).

Various common 16:9 resolutions:

960x540, 1024×576, 1280×720, 1366×768, 1600×900, 1920×1080

Various common 16:10 resolutions:

960x600, 1280x800, 1440x900, 1680x1050, 1920x1200

If you have latency issues but no FPS issues, lower your bitrate.

You can edit the bitrate in your XSplit by your channel settings.

A good thumb rule when setting a bitrate - (Your upload in mbit - 0,3) * 1000

So if you have 0,8 mbit up, go with 500 kbit in bitrate. This should leave enough upload to handle other connections like skype and WoW.

If you have really good upload, you should considering having it in the 2000-3000 region depending on how much your streamers lag (if they lag at all).

If you have any questions please write them in the thread and not in a PM so other people who might have the same question can read it aswell.

Have fun streaming.

#3807389 How to prevent DDoS on skype. Proxy set up guide.

Posted hurrdurr on 18 November 2012 - 07:54 PM

Our Toolbox


PuTTY is a neat little program that allows you to do a lot of different things. The specific functions we will be using it for is the ability to tunnel SSH traffic through localhost ( to our VPS. In laymen’s terms, it will be transferring all of the data over Skype through a secure tunnel so that only the VPS you’re connected to is being exposed to anyone else.

This is a simple program that we will use that will transform the key we get from Amazon into something that PuTTY can use to automatically connect to our VPS.
Windows 7 Firewall

We’re using Windows 7′s Firewall (ANY Firewall can be substituted here) to disable Skype from connecting to the internet.
EC2 Amazon Access

Even though it requires a credit card to sign up for and activate, the only tier we’re interested in is 100% free. Amazon may authorize $1 to your CC just to verify that it’s real, but you won’t actually be billed any money. The free-tier that we will be using will be good for 1 year prior to activation.
The Process

The problem people have with Skype is that it tends to ignore whatever proxy you throw into the connection information for it. It doesn’t actually ignore the proxy, but it will simply add it to a list of nodes it will consider connecting to if you’re having trouble maintaining a p2p connection with whoever it is you’re chatting with. For security purposes, this makes it useless. Instead of adding our VPS to the Skype proxy list, we’ll add “What’s the point, though? You said it won’t even use that most of the time!” That’s where our Windows Firewall comes in! We’ll use Windows 7′s Firewall to block Skype from making ALL outbound connections to the internet. This means that when Skype tries to connect to the internet when you log in, it will see that there is no connection available. This forces it to look to any proxies the user has supplied for a connection. Ordinarily, these would also not work (since all outbound connections are blocked by our Firewall), however, localhost is not an outbound connection and therefore falls outside of W7′s restricted connections. This means we’ve effectively tricked W7′s firewall into becoming a routing tool! Skype will then begin tunneling traffic through localhost, assuming PuTTY is open and you are connected to your EC2 server that you set-up on Amazon.

The Walkthrough

If you came here straight from the first page just looking to a guide to mindlessly follow, this will get the job done. However, I highly encourage you to read the explanations given in the pages prior to this so that you have a thorough understanding of what you’re going to be doing with the programs you’ll be working with.

Downloading PuTTY

First, let’s get the program we’ll use for our SSH tunneling, PuTTY, and the program we’ll use for our Amazon key, PuTTYgen.
PuTTY and PuTYYgen - http://www.chiark.gr...y/download.html. [Picture]
Setting up EC2 on Amazon

Next, we’ll need to create an AWS (Amazon Web Services) account. You can click the “sign up now” button here - http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/. If you don’t already have an Amazon account, you’ll need to create one of those as well. The micro-instance we’ll be utilizing via Amazon’s EC2 service is free for one year.
After that, we’ll need to sign up for Amazon’s EC2 service and get a micro-instance running.

  • You can return to the same link earlier (http://aws.amazon.com/ec2/) and click the “My Account/Console” drop down menu in the top right, then click “AWS Management Console”.

  • Next click “EC2″ under the “Compute and Networking” list

  • You should see an option that will allow you to “Launch” an instance. Click that.

  • Select the “Classic Wizard” option and click next.

  • Scroll down to whatever the latest Ubunutu server is with a star next to it, and press the “select” button next to it. You can leave the 64 bit version selected.

  • As long as everything looks like this on the next page, you can continue.

  • Press “continue” on the next page.

  • Then press “continue” one more time.

  • The next page asks you to assign a key/value name to the micro-instance you are running. This is entirely arbitrary and will not be used at any point here, so you can name these whatever you want, or simply leave it blank.

  • For the next page, you’re requested to create a name for your key pair. This will be used later on to log into the micro-instance. After you assign another arbitrary name, you can download this key pair.

  • On the next security page you need to select the “quick-start” bubble, then click “continue”.

  • Finally you can “launch” your instance!
Creating a keyfile and setting up PuTTY

Remember where you saved that keyfile that you downloaded earlier? Now we’re going to turn that keyfile into something usable with PuTTY.
  • Open “puttygen.exe”.

  • Click “load” and search for the key you saved from Amazon. You will have to select “all files” in the bottom right as the file you’re looking for is a .pem file, and not a .ppk file.

  • Click “save private key” and save it somewhere you’ll remember for later on.
Now it’s time to configure the program that we downloaded earlier, PuTTY.
  • When you first open up PuTTY, there will be two empty boxes for information. “Host Name (or IP address)” and “Port”. In the “Host Name” box, you need to enter your EC2 information from Amazon. Go to https://console.aws.amazon.com/ec2 and click “1 Running Instance” to bring up a list containing the instance you launched earlier. Select it. At the bottom of the screen you will see your Amazon EC2 IP (it will look something like this). Enter this into the PuTTY Host Name box. For “Port” you can enter “22″.

  • Make sure the connection type is set to SSH.

  • On the left side of the PuTTY window, scroll down and expand “Connection”, then select “Data”.

  • Here you want to enter your “Auto-login username” as “ubuntu”.

  • Now expand “SSH”, then select the “Auth” option.

  • In the empty box here you need to search for and enter the location of the keyfile you saved earlier using puttygen.

  • Now select “Tunnels”. On this screen you want to enter 8080  in the “Source port” box, and make sure you’ve selected the “Dynamic” bubble beneath. Now press “Add” and “D8080″ should appear in the box above.

  • Now scroll all the way back up to “Session” on the left side, enter whatever you want in the “Saved Sessions” box, then press the “Save” button on the right to save these settings. Now when you open PuTTY, all you’ll have to do is press “Load” and “Open” to recall these settings and open your SSH tunnel.
Use Windows 7 Firewall to block Skype
  • Search for “Advanced” on Windows 7 and “Windows Firewall with Advanced Security” should come up.

  • Select “Outbound Rules” from the left column

  • In the top left, select the “Action” menu and click on “New Rule…”

  • A box will appear on your screen. Select “Program” and click the next button.

  • Browse your computer for Skype to block, then press “Next”.

  • Press “Next” one more time, all three boxes should be marked on this screen.

  • You can create whatever name you want here; I called my rule “SkypeBlock”.
Now Windows 7 will not allow Skype to make any outbound connections! To test and make sure that this worked, try to open up Skype right now. If you were successful, Skype should fail to connect to the internet.
Force Skype to route through localhost
  • On the Skype login windows, click “Tools”, then press the “Connection options” button.

  • Under this connection tab, you need to make sure “SOCKS5″ is selected in the drop down menu. Now you need to enter “″ for the “Host” box and “8080″ for the “Port” box.
And that’s it, you’re done!
Now any time you want to log onto Skype behind your Amazon proxy, all you have to do is open PuTTY, load your settings, then connect to your EC2 instance (via the “Open” button) and you should be good to go!

Was it stupid? Yes.

The usual crap will get written everytime Khuna posts something. As long as people with low self-esteem are around bashing someone into oblivion will be around. Khuna will have to deal with this for a very long time. Anyone researching his real name on google will find it, it is a mark on his resume that will not fade.

I expect that almost anyone that bashed Khuna would have sobbed and cried for getting a reputation shattered, after losing his Shanghai ticket to incompetent tournament organizers, after thousands of hours training. Khuna came back, despite all the trolls, despite all the flames, despite he knew what was coming. This is the difference between you and him. This is what makes him who he is and this is why he is here to stay.
He was in a perfect place to prevent everything from happening, noone critisizes khuna as a player-don't misunderstand ,he was the best and most succesfull rogue in cataclysm.
It has absolutely nothing to do with low esteem(rofl fanboy), you actually expect players to welcome him after  what he was involved in?. It truly does not matter if there were intentions behind the whole story or he was dragged in by xandyn(most likely).

Stop being such a fanboy,it's pretty annoying honestly.

#3684747 Interview with Khuna

Posted WildeHilde on 14 April 2012 - 07:03 PM

Khuna plays rogue in World of Warcraft, participated in on- and offline tournaments and currently holds place two on the Cyclone 3v3 ladder with his team XMAS no presents GG. He is considered to be one of the best rogue players during Cataclysm and with his team one of the favorites for qualifying during the EU regionals. We talked about his attitude, RMP as a comp, coaching players and the upcoming tournaments. Enjoy.

Posted Image

Hildegard: Welcome to the "Forscherliga Interview" Khuna. As you may know the first question is always the same. What did you eat today?

Khuna: haha nothing fancy just some pasta :P

Hildegard: Probably too early in the day, but I hoped someone from France would give me a more tasty answer. Can you cook?

Khuna: Not really, I just make basic things to eat fast

Hildegard: When we first talked you had a piece of art, probably 18th century, as Skype avatar. Are you interested in art?

Khuna: ROFL. No, not at all. It was just a private joke with friends. haha sorry :D

Hildegard: Well let's get to World of Warcraft. Xandyn told me that the arena tournament in Korea would be played with S9 gear. Isn't it more likely to feature S12 MoP gear and rules?

Khuna: Well I knew from a friend few month ago that the tournament realm will be played in season 9 gear. I have no clue for the tournament in Korea since it is gonna be in the end of 2012 and we don't know yet when mop will be released, but I am pretty sure the regionals will be in season 9 gear.

Hildegard: Which could be a pretty big disaster, as the meta game will change a lot with the next addon.

Khuna: Yeah, but we've seen that happen before like the ESL tournament in 3.0 back in TBC so I don’t know

Hildegard: Your team is pretty confident to qualify for the Korean tournament, if I am not mistaken.

Khuna: Well it will all depend on how RMP will be on  the TR with season 9 gear and the current patch. We were really confident to qualify for last BlizzCon because RMP was a really strong setup, but it got nerfed right before the regionals and it became a pretty bad one. Things have changed now, though. RMP might be good with the 25% ms buff in season 9 gear.

Hildegard: During many BlizzCon tournaments RMP was hard-countered and lost although a lot of players expected the RMPs to perform very well. SK US and Loaded Black come to mind, as well as Hydra/Kalimist/Another or your team during the qualifiers. RMP is probably the comp that was played the most over the course of the arena, but never won it.

Khuna: Well I think RMP was a really strong setup over the seasons. It was bad sometimes but I think the main fact is that very few team mastered it. It is a pretty hard comp to master because you need to play as a team and not as an individual player to succeed. Unlike you can do when you play a warlock comp. I play RMP since season 4(TBC) and I improved my game play on this comp pretty much every time I played it. There are a lot of little things, that you can improve to be more efficient for your team, while it is more about individual skills when you play comp with a warlock per example.
The strength of RMP is the damage you can pull out, if you do a great work with your partner in a short amount of time  before your cooldowns run out. RMP was pretty bad in season 9 in a tournament play mainly because all the LSD were just stacking tons of resilience ( 1400+ back then ) to turtle until the RMP runs out of cooldowns and win eventually. The main reason why Buttonbashers were so successful was because their rogue was playing with 700 resilience ( was really low back then ) while their mage was leading swaps with his priest. That’s also why the nerf on TR affected us that much, because it was directly a nerf to the rogue's damage.
RMP was a bit different in season 8, though, because rogue wasn’t really dealing damage (with imp gouge etc ) he was more like a "stun bot" for his mage (with a lot of haste) and priest to kill people. It was a really fun comp to play back then, but unfortunately all the LSD could just wear 1400 resilience and been almost unkillable. I still think it was possible to beat this comp. We beat Enigmz, Fabio and Hrk as RMP when we were not even good. Our priest wasn't really good and Xandyn was far from being as good as now in WotLK, too. I just think RMP is a great and solid comp since many years but people just aren't good enough at it.

Hildegard: Can you give an example of what separates RMPs that perform very well on ladders from those that can win tournaments?

Khuna: I don't think you have to be good to perform as RMP in a ladder environment. I don't think you have to be good to perform well on the ladder no matter what your comp is.
You could just beat a lot of better teams and get a rank 1 easily by just having good pve gear and zerging people down or dodging people or queuing when no good team queues, like a lot of people did.

Hildegard: The next NAO tournament is in June. Can you play on those servers without lag issues?

Khuna: Yes, it's fine, I mean I lag a bit, which is quite annoying to backstab, ambushes, garrote or even sometimes hit my target, but I can still play with it. I don't think we would lose any game because of lag. Maybe 1 out of 10 or so. I just need to get used to it again, but obviously I am maybe playing in 80% of my capacities because of it because its harder to do things like prekick etc

Hildegard: Does "prekick" mean you kick before you see the cast bar, because you know the cast is coming?

Khuna: Exactly.

Hildegard: That of course is affected by lag a lot. On tournaments everyone is more stressed than on ladders, but your voice always sounds very calm, compared to other players. How come?

Khuna: I don't know. I used to stress a bit when I played against good teams for the first time a lot of years ago, but I just stopped stressing very fast.  I am pretty much never stressed, even during the  regionals.  I can't explain it.  I just don't stress, haha :D Maybe it has something to do with self confidence.  I am trying to get my team pumped on Skype in a tournament play by talking loud, for example, butI always have a clear mind. I think that might help me to be good, because I always know what is going to come in the next few seconds. I can always think clear and it probably helps me to be more consistent.

Hildegard: That probably only happens because you feel in control. Means you are self-confident to the extent, that you perform best, even if you lose?

Khuna: It never happened to me since a long time to not know why I lost a game, so I don't really panic either when I do. Its either because of me, my team mates or a bad strategy (or game balance, which is very rare). I am self confident, yes, but I can admit my mistakes. I think you can't be a good player in any video game if you don't admit your mistakes and learn from it. Tell yourself, that you are at your best, too, because you can always improve. Every time I look at myself playing a few months ago I feel like I wasn't that good because I always improve.
The only time I raged or didn't know, what we could improve to win, were the few games I lost to triple dps or when I lost to rogue feral with vial, when vial was completely stupid. But I mean even if triple dps is close to impossible to beat for a certain comp, if they play it properly, I think it's overall a bad idea to cry and say, that you can't win. EVEN if its true. It's a way better attitude to adopt for me to try to play better even if we know we will probably loose but it is hard sometimes yea.

Hildegard: A very solid attitude of self-improvement, never giving up and working hard. Often players want to be good instead of constantly evolving and improving.  How did you develop this attitude instead of seeing yourself as a genius?

Khuna: I think it is mainly because I started recording myself playing very early ( in the start of arenas pretty much ) so I could just watch myself and see what mistakes I did. When I saw that I did a mistake the very first thing I want to do is to never do it again. That is maybe because I am a perfectionist in everything I do.

Hildegard: What do you earn your living with?

Khuna: Well I don't really earn my living at the moment. The money I get is from everything related to WoWpretty much. I will have my own apartment in September and I think I can make a decent amount of money from WoW, if I try. I tried streaming before to see how much money I could make from it only and it was a really good amount. So I will start streaming way more when I’ll have my apartment and probably earn money from it  and  few other things related to wow.

Hildegard: It is no secret what those other things are. What always astonished me, was why players would pay for someone else playing a game for them. Do you have an explanation?

Khuna: Well I wouldn't personally do that, but a lot of people just care about what other people think about them. So they care about their rank in a video game. I don't really understand it to be honest but people do what they want :D

Hildegard: Did you ever encounter any player that was boosted at some time to perform well later?

Khuna: No, I don't think you can become any good if you ask other people to play for you instead of improving yourself. The only thing that could make you better is paying for lessons in my opinion.

Hildegard: Do you offer lessons?

Khuna: Yes, but not that much. I might do it  more in the next few months, though.

Hildegard: How would that work? You check the interface/spec/gear and watch them playing?

Khuna: Well it could work in different ways. The most common one at the moment  is just speaking with the persons that wants to learn about different aspects of the game or of their class in arena, in a certain composition etc.
It is sometimes also to play with them and tell them what they could improve, or to stream privately for them and explain them what you do and why you do that. Sometimes it is just helping them improving their UI or such things.

Hildegard: What I always thought would work really well was if someone was actually taken into a team. For example if you want to coach a rogue. Let your teammates play with him on the tournament realm and watch on stream. That would obviously be more costly, but pretty effective.

Khuna: Yes, some people actually pay other people to play with them and I think that is one of the best ways to improve.

Hildegard: How much does an hour of you coaching someone cost?

Khuna: Well at the moment it is something between 40€ and 50€, but I don't really do it that much like I said, like almost not at all.

Hildegard: So, moving on to some gossip. You ditched Hydra before playing with Xandyn and Zunniyaki. Why?

Khuna: Haha, well it's a long story. Ryan is my friend and I really enjoyed playing with him a lot on tr, was great fun. When we started he was kinda rusty on disc, but he improved really fast.
I chose to go with Xandyn and Zunniyaki in the end of the tournament realm mainly because I felt like we were stronger as RMP.  Back then Xandyn understood the mage class, the RMP comp and the expansion way more than Raiku . Also Zunniyaki is an insanely good priest and we played a lot together before, too.

Hildegard: How did Ryan (Hydra) react? I guess he was not used to getting ditched.

Khuna: Well I saw him on regionals and talked to him before and it seemed like it was cool. Anyways, we didn't end up winning, because RMP got nerfed to the ground right before regionals so he didn't miss anything :D. We both had great fun at the regionals, so it was cool.

Hildegard: Is rank one title on Cyclone still worth something?

Khuna: I don't know. We don't really try anymore. Zunniyaki broke his fingers, Hydra's team is way above us because they queued really early in the season a lot more than us. The TR is coming soon.
I don't really care about rank 1 but I know Xandyn does. So maybe we will do it.

Hildegard: I think a lot of people would like to see the ladder matches of you team vs. Hydras team.

Khuna: We met Hydra's team on this GameSense tournament and ended up winning 3 - 1 cause we fucked up one game. Hydra doesn't play with Mir anymore anyway. I know Mir and Raiku are playing with a priest named Salv, but I am not afraid of them. If we loose a mirror that means we didn't play good enough, nothing else.

Hildegard: Which teams on the tournament realm do you think will compete for the top spots? Are you afraid of any of them?

Khuna: I can't really say which team will compete for the top spots on the tournament realm, yet. Simply because nobody can know, which comp will be good or not with the new patch and the old gear. I think PHD, TSG, ShadowCleave, MLS, and maybe RMP/RLS might be good, but we can't know for sure, yet.  I am not afraid of anyone. I never was, even when I met a better team, than mine. I always think, that if I lose it is my fault or the fault of my team, not because the team against us is too good.

Hildegard: Is your current gear on the Arsenal tailored for 3v3 RMP?

Khuna: Yes my gear for RMP is around 4K resilience. PVE gear isn't that good for rogues in RMP, other than legendary of course, which are completely retarded. You would just take too much and don’t do that much more damage, because you can't take the hemo/recuperate spec as RMP.
Burst damage is also way more important, than consistent damage in RMP. Sometimes I don't do damage at all for more than ten seconds when playing this comp.
Even if rogue is a class, that has cooldowns to avoid damage, it isn't like a mage. You end up tanking damage in stuns, so you can't wear too few resilience.
I am only speaking about RMP, though. The hemo/recuperate spec is completely retarded in RLS for example. You are just unkillable even with low resilience.

Hildegard: You use the crit pvp trinket however, that astonished me a bit. Wouldn't other pieces be a better option?

Khuna: Well I don't have any other pieces on this rogue and crit is the most important start after AP in RMP. 3800 / 4100 resilience is enough don't need the resilience trinket.

Hildegard: The NAO tournament is well accepted and most participants agree that it is made professional. The GameSense tournament however was horrible, Athenes EOI Charity tournament didn't look too professional either. Why is no one able to make something similar in Europe?

Khuna: Because the NAO tournament is organized by more people, which are way more professional. They also took much more time to organize it and they are just more serious about it.
I don't think it is a continent problem or anything. I just think the people working on NAO put much more effort into it and they are doing a really good job cheers to them. They also had better commentators.

Hildegard: We come to the end of the interview and I always ask for a best of five list. As I know few things about the person behind the screen I chose something from WoW this time. Your five favorite arena team names are?

Khuna: Rofl this is so hard, those are French. You probably don't understand them, haha, they are private jokes with my homies :D

moha le serpent

jsuis un con

nettoyage en règle

plus the one i had on TR with Xandyn and Zunniyaki:


We took that name because we wanted to try to wear full pve gear before anyone else. Back then every mage was playing with high resilience. We wanted to pop every cooldown in the opener with full pve gear on mage and zerg the opposite shaman to SURPRISE EFFECT them during the regionals and make them cry :D haha.

Hildegard: Nice one. Thank you for the interview Khuna. Any shout outs?

Khuna: Thank you for interviewing me, yeah shout out to all of my french homies Flubbah, Alexis, Charlie, Cuentanamo, Shawir, Chubz, Skenz, Rod. To my partners Xandyn and Zunniyaki and to pretty much everyone on my Skype contact list, because I almost only have people I like on Skype :D
Also thanks to everyone supporting me. I am sorry, if I didn't stream that much lately. I will stream way more on the TR or around September.

Seems like great warrior play but I just can't take your voice seriously
