Make sure the female announcer doesn't speak again. Ever. She has no idea what she's talking about and her voice is terrible.

One stream with announcers and another with sound effects only would also be acceptable.

Make it happen CCP.

They keep saying the wrong ships.

And telling me ships are alive when they aren't.

And ending it when theres the little ferox that could.

No she is terrible, stay on topic. The other announcers are doing a great job, just make her be quiet.

Was one of them mistaking Ishtars for Ishkurs or was that just me? Seemed like he did it a lot.

Is there a reason it can't be both fun and correct?

The video should be edited and should include audio from the TS of the respective teams. Postmortem interviews could be worked in.

The play by play guys have a hard time calling it becuase they have very little info about what is going on. Even when they do have all the names correct they are reduce to reporting on the relative shield stregth of ship x - something we can see ourselves.

It's not that shes a girl, they have women give on the field updates during football games and although its kinda weird to hear a women talking about sports at least they know what they are saying. This AT8 girl has no clue what was going on and was sputtering nonsense most the time. I have a bad feeling were gunna have to listen to her next weekend too :(

And this. I wasn't say she shouldn't be there cause she is female, it was just the easiest way to identify which commentator I was referring to (not that everyone else wasn't already thinking it).

Go easy on the announcers for God's sake!

You don't really think they were sober do you?

Does anyone actually play this game sober? Shocked

I think they are doing an okay job, it may not be perfect but then again i don't think it's something they do everyday.

If you don't like it just turn down the sound...

The announcers, including seasoned vets, can and will make mistakes occasionally. So do professional sports casters.

Who cares.

It's entertaining, and occasionally offers some interesting points of view. Operating as intended.

Edit: I will have to concede the point that it would be nice if people would stop saying sKimitar. Confused I know it's a common mispronunciation, but it makes me wince each time I hear it.

They should also watch the tourney stream themselves.
Then they could avoid talking about something that the viewers can identify as wrong immediately.

"That's it, game over" - "No, there's still that Ferox"
"And the Cyclone going into low shields" - "No, its says Sleipnir on my screen"
"And they just lost the Sabre and Logistics ship at the same time" - "Actually they lost that Sabre 30 seconds ago"

*EDIT*
Also extra lulz for "Oh, I accidentally moved out of range and cannot see anything right now"

Most of them are pretty terrible this year.

The only way it can get and worse is if they start calling ships the tan one launching those dashes and those gray ones shooting the big white balls and start saying that their rage bars are filling up when they get hit.

They can be both and should try to be both, but they need to be entertaining first and foremost. Clearly not everyone thinks like this, but those seem to be relatively few and even they know all the facts already, so they don't really need to hear commentators repeat what they already knew. So even to the nitpickers the main value of the commentating can only be entertainment. The main reason for the commentating is therefore to make the watching experience more entertaining with their chatter and providing very basic info for people new to the ships, the tactics and the mechanics. They did this mostly fine and with more experience the frequency of factual mistakes made will go down.

It all started with people complaining about the commentators - hey how about some players do the commentating (a year ago)! Well you got what you wished for. It wasn't without mistake before, but now... Some of those people from the "big important alliances" sound so dam boring - their voices and what they say. You guys need to work on your public speaking skills, so you don't "choke" or use the same phrase over and over.

What is needed more is for commentators to have 1 monitor playing EVE and viewing the battle first hand and the other monitor showing what the spectators are seeing - the live-stream (or in windowed modes). Too often they can't comment because they lost locks, they don't know which ships blew up - this is hard to keep track off because they don't have the 20 lock opus yacht(camera) - I imagine they have normal locks and i bet its hard to keep track off what blew up, damage etc.
