eddz is the man. its too bad every commentator doesnt care as much as him, it makes everyone watching care more.

kil2 is a small gang pvper that makes pvp videos which you can find in the "my eve" part of eve forums. o/

What you people forget is that those commentators have a really tough job. They need to comment for several hours in a row and they do it all in their free time more or less.

If you have ever watched professional comments on TV (for example soccer) then it is obvious that those professionals are talking 10 times more nonsense than our Eve commentators!


So I want to say big THANKS to all the commentators. You are doing great (and everyone can have a brainfart from time to time).

According to Wiktionary, /əˈbęd(ə)n/.

Or, if I remember my IPA correctly, roughly, "uh-bayh-den".

There's precisely zero chance I will ever pronounce it correctly, so I'm hardly going to hold you to a higher standard. Cool

Listened to the commentary on the AGONY vs Beach Boys match and there was a question of why the Vagas didnt seem to take so much damage. Well, the Vagas obviously ran with multiple (3?) LSEs, and with EM resist above 90%, thats tough even for 4 APOCs. That fact was not mentioned at all.

Having recently watched the match I participated in, I discovered that KIAEddz was rambling about sensor scripts or somesuch for half of the fight and didn't even seem to be aware we had started. I think CCP should recompense us in the form of a small statuette placed next to the New Eden gate that states:

"If you have the means to go back, go back now. Eddz is here and by god is he a Clunk"

Naturally, this is a logical course of action and any attempt by CCP to drag its feet over the placing of the statuette would be a surefire sign of some kind of Internet Conspiracy.

That would be verone, and hes got a point, i however was enjoying just repeating their name because it made me smile that a bunch of pirates and sucicide gankers are in the tournament with such a great name.

Also next week will be even better, chuppy chuba chubba chups vs gay4life... pure entertainment. Team lolly pop vs team man popsicle.

OP: KIAeddz is figure skating.

i've only listened to a half dozen broadcasts this year, but apart from a couple of gaffs the commentary has been fine and even enlightening on occasion. these aren't professional presenters, they're commentating live and i doubt they're being paid for their time.

if you think you could do better why not record a sample commentary and post it here. perhaps you'll get the chance to commentate at some point over the tourney.

Well I love the commentators because they say nice things about us. But.. having watched the YouTube of all the matches now I have a couple of requests:

- Commentry is clipped after the ship listing and it can be hard to tell the difference between t1 and t2 variants from the YouTube so it would be nice if the coverage started about 15 seconds earlier to get the full picture.
- When you are watching Vids or listening, it's very hard to get any idea of range or speed people are travelling, it might also be true for the commentators to but it would be interesting info to hear. I got really confused on the matches where ppl fielded AB's because I couldn't tell why they were being chased down so easily etc.... you can use Watch Ship->Tactical Overlay to get good info on relative ranges of ships (overview will give you speed quite easily I guess) if indeed the commentators are getting to fly camera ships?
- Saying player names would be cool because everyone wants their 15 minutes of e-fame.

There are two options when viewing a match, camera mode and standard overview. Some people prefer to use different modes.

In camera mode you can align the teams left & right and see their hitpoints, icon, alliance & ship type, there is no speed.

Standard overview is what you use every day, but with 20 targets locked it can get a bit ugly.

I use camera mode & I often try to call the accurate ranges of the main groups of ships just before or on match start. But once those ships move, if im in camera mode my information becomes out of date and i use more generalised descriptions such as close/long range, approaching, running away, speed boosting and hes dead!

Due to scheduling match times and 3rd party radio broadcasts tuning into us we try and call ship types, even guns & starting ranges 1 minute before the match which does not make it onto youtube. The reason we do this is because once the match starts we may not have time to call it before ships start exploding. When there is a lul in the action we do try and update you on what ships are left on the field, and an update on the exact working of the match.

This tournament is unlike the others due to the lack of remote repair modules many targets instapop or by the time we announce a ship is down we normally have to continue the sentence to add that ship 2 & 3 have popped while we were telling you about ship 1. So it often becomes a matter of telling you which ships are on the field and which are down while trying to fit ranges, tactics and descriptions in between when we find time between explosions.

This has been a very explosive tournament. Its fun stuff.

I think the guys are doing a great job; after all, isn't the commentary part supposed to be as entertaining as it is informative? ^_^

GRRRRRRR cant believe I'm doing this..... Eddz and the boys have done a fairly good job this year. Radio commentary is far harder than TV.

Like eddz said. He truely has forgotten more pvp than most know. Being in a titan and pressing a button then pressing warp is what most of the older people in the game like him know now. Its understandable that he may forget from time to time that a scrambler disables an mwd. Overall good job so far..... next time TV it CCP.

Shocked

I really had to quote this for the lols. I kept grinning for the past 10 minutes after reading it.

It's just too funny to imagine all the titan-pilots sitting in their ships 23/7 and just forgetting about the things they used to do in the past 5 years or so or just being unable to catch up with the news.

It just makes them look a bit like really grumpy old farts who just can't be arsed anymore.

And it makes those ebil names that usually make you immediately align out and spam the warpbutton whenever they appear in local a bit... well cute. Laughing
