ya but such hate??? I know humans are a plague on this earth and we only know how to do one thing and that is destroy and kill but come on. im just saying. Yes she rambles, yes she makes references no one has heard before.

I guess it is to be expected when you put 1 person in from of 15k antisocial trolls... :) lol


The hate in the thread is either trolling for lulz (most of them obvious) or counter-trolling, or an equally lacking ability to articulate the problem. It's easier to say "OMFG she is teh suxorz and ruinzing mah srs interwebz spaseships!" than to say something along the lines of what I've already stated.

But, communication is rarely a factor in most internet based gaming, despite being communally large. If everyone were able to form well-reasoned arguments and debate them in a civil manner, would this game really be the same as it is now? A part of me says 'Not likely'. I imagine that to also be the job of people like those on the CSM, to take the rage, angst, poor grammar, and so forth, and convert it into said well-reasoned arguments for presentation, though I pity them for that fact alone.

Mistakes will happen, yes. This is a fact of the human condition, however, making the same mistakes repeatedly causes one to call into question the ability of the speaker and thus you have things such as this thread.
Since you are new to this game and forums I would like to point out this thread would be here even if she was great and did not make any mistakes. As a whole I would like to thank all of the commentators for taking the time and flak to provide us with this rare service, Thanks!

It's a knee-jerk reaction to all the idiots giving her a free pass because she's a girl on the internet.

I honestly believe that if she wasn't a girl, everyone on these forums would agree that she's a terrible commentator.

youre right, but because she is a girl, its sexual discrimination ^^
maybe ccp can use her the same way as the tournament cat... placing her somewhere in the studio and lookin @ the camera (quietly ofc) :)

...and everybody would be happy again, even brianna, because she got a free flight to iceland

You all do realize you are idiots right?
Go do it yourself etc.

That's actually a very good point.

CCP trolling = best trolling?

Just like everyone else said, don't listen to the whiner-trons, Bri. Most of these dudes aren't used to hearing girls talk outside of p0rno... it makes them insecure to have their nerd-ulinity challenged by a woman


riight.. pay no attention to the naughty people.. just listen to your own alliance mates because they are totally objective in this.

tbh all the guys going on like all this hate would originate just because she's a woman are the real jerks that treat a woman special because she's special as a woman.

We have basically the ones saying "commenting is aweful" and the ones going like "ah, you are just mean because she is a woman".

If you guys really think you get treated like this because you are a woman, you seriously have to get out more in the fresh air once in a while.

Oh, she got a free trip to Iceland! While it is sad someone would abuse these things for their own benefit, it is no surprise.

I will defend Brianna in this though: EVE is a diverse community, with players from around the globe. Players that make fun of people's accents are immature and egotistic. I've seen way too many people make fun of it, and its just disappointing to see.

On a side note, I find it hypocritical for two week old players, with no experience whatsoever in PVP, to say Brianna knows absolutely nothing and is terrible at commentating. They say they can do a better job, and I'd love to see that.

Guys, calm down.. I mean, have any of you ever heard the crap that used to spill out of John Madden's mouth? I mean, Brianna was FAR more effective at conveying a message that that guy... And he did it for what, 30 years?

"Usually the team with the most points wins the game!"

"They'll score if they can just get into the endzone."

"To get more yards, it's best to move the ball from the line of scrimmage down the field."

-- John Madden...

I didn't hear her as a commentator during fights, but she was pretty convincing in the final rounds' Saturday studio, explaining stuff pretty well. I bet that the two nerdy guys at the studio couldn't have done it any better.

I think its a bit unfair ti pick on Brianna solely (ok sKimitar did get tiresome, but English might not be her first language...)...

The whole commentary, while probably necessary, is cringeworthy!

As for Verone, I feel a twinge of embarrassment that someone who sounds like he's a Geordie should be publicly involved in this at all; he's not even wearing his Toon Army shirt which I thought was compulsory (however if he's a Mackem that explains everything)

No doubt that last paragraph has completely confused 95% of the readership, but Verone and I know what I mean

He sounds like a Mackem to me.

I have yet to speak about her comments regarding PvP, but given the general lack of game knowledge, simple terms and the ability to adequately explain them I did say that I was glad Kil2 responded as opposed to her. Also, if you'll read the posts following that one, I clarified the point further.
