Nothing like the cleansing fires of the forums to show your appreciation to these guys taking time to entertain the mob. Less nerd rage and more thanks is in order.

Thanks, you guys are doing a great job. Your only human and that means you make mistakes from time to time.

Who has the big tongue, braces and irish accent?

It's pretty annoying to be honest.Confused

Yeah, one guy has good commentary, but his voice is NOT suited for a microphone. He "sllllshhh" all the time, the worlds roll and give me bad shivers everytime I hear him... bbrrrrrr

*edit: youtube deeplink where he is talking:

That hvy accent guy drooling all over the mic was really really! annoying. Get rid of him CCP he's ruining the commentary.
He might be a nice guy otherwise but im 150 kgs so i dont try to be a top model either you know... he too should stick to spitting whatever he has in his mouth and not semi professional commentary.

no, really. it's all well and good saying "such and such was a poor commentator, he didn't have the voice for radio" but that's juts being mean.

i know i's th internet and everything but if it'd be ****ty to say it to somebody's face, it's probably ****ty to post it about them. nothing personal and all that, but why be a nobhead about it?

edit: and no, the commentator in question is not me or anybody i know. bung me your vent details and i'll happily prove it ;)

It's fun to laugh at the commentators, and yes we have as well, but they put a lot of work into it - sometimes getting stuff wrong is great tbh. How many times do we slag off Shearer/Hansen etc. for being clueless bastards (Presenters on Match of the Day in England FYI).

The guys chosen seem to be passionate about the event and sometimes knowledgeable - accents aside - what more do you want? <3 Kil2 btw - he's a great addition.

This is exactly why i did it. Im sick of this PC attitude everywhere (as u said nothing personal m8 its just general) i hear that kind of speech on the tv and radio all the time. Believe me i respect their work and the effort they put in it but the world is not like that and as i said if im ugly and fat then i wont try to be a top model.

Its not about being cruel but if youre talking like your mouth is full of saliva and who knows what else and i have to filter every word behind the yummys, the commentary kinda loses its point, becomes annoying and disgusting. Its not a friendly talk or short speech on the comms in battle or anything else where its no problem at all, its a professional commentary where i want to hear and concentrate on whats happening because i cant really see too much because of the bad quality of the vids. (yet i hope)

Luckily im not the only one who noted this, and luckily im not living in that pc world where i would tell my 3 headed friend everything is normal with him when its not. (actually you can call me cruel, i just hate pc) So its not about the faceless internet here.
(Also theres absolutely no problem with u defending him, no need to prove anything :D)

commentors are usually always pretty bad... Verone, being the odd ball of all. He usually is the one calling stuff that is what it is.

How does someone who is being flown to iceland for his eve knowledge not know **** about eve. I mean if your suppose to be doing a job, i.e. providing knowledge about games and matches at least know basic ship types and mods/functions. I've seen countless times where they are calling a damnation an absolution. Mindlinks? are they not warfare mods, or gang mods. Just some food for thought.

i'm so hung over it's not even funny :( i still fink there's a big difference between good manners and being overly PC. political correctness is ****, taking the **** out of the way somebody speaks is just disrespectful.

but what the hey, i have no idea why i even felt the need to chastise you for being rude to random internet people in the first place, and frankly amazed i managed to post through my drunken haze.

If i was worried about criticism i wouldnt have put myself on a public stage. The eve-o forums feature some of the most critical and damming opinions, rational or otherwise that I have ever seen, but we're on the internet, so i enjoy the craic & take everything with a pinch of salt. The majority of responses towards the tournament & people behind it have been positive if not hilarious, as has this thread.

Despite manflu, an accent, and all the various things people have said is in my mouth, hell being called Scottish and then getting a backhanded compliment that i sounded like Sir Sean Connery, sexiest man alive that happened to have his mouth full. Im still here working for free on radio matches and interviews, im being flown to Iceland to work on internet tv and im going to have a great time doing all of it.

Afterall, im DJTheBaron: Space Pirate Extraordinaire, & your not.

I don't think this is correct. Several times, we've talked about how MC were pretty much the only ones to use the T2 battleships last tournament, but we've certainly not said that they weren't used while I was on.

During the PL match, I really did have to cringe when the commentators listed Angel as an FC. That's great she was once a known commander within the ranks of CI and TRI, but since joining the legion with Illuminati, she's just a CEO. She does not lead alliance operations to anything but their own death, but I'll encourage any opposing team to primary her if it really makes you feel better.

you cringe too easily then, fact is she is a well known fc (whether or not she currently fcs) and it's perfectly reasonable to think your opponents woulda made the same mistake eddz did

personally i woulda gone shadoo -> shamis -> wargod -> angel

however she was probably blocking their view and that's why they primaried her :(

It really doesn't matter much, the team's like a military unit.. take the leader down, the next one in the chain of command calls targets. It's not like they just stop fighting, and every one of them knows what they're doing. I was just saying don't give credit when it's not due. I was a lot of things a year ago, it doesn't make me any good at them now.

You're not likely to disrupt anyone's activity by killing FCs in this event. I suspect most alliances have pretty much pure A-List players out there. Basically every guy on the field is an accomplished FC and quite used to stepping up at a moment's notice.

Not more than so many others really.

I thought that the commentators were selected for their know-how, CCP did the whole "apply now" thing .. didn't they screen the applicants?

(beat that poking stick if you can)
