Great match with a nice comeback finish. One commentator did very well and sounded excited about what was going on. The other was very dull, repeated "looks like", and really didn't sound interested or motivated.
I'd really prefer they used HON terminology/terms as well. I dislike the referencing of DOTA names.
Is anyone using a proxy to watch to speed the stream up? I can't seem to find a lag less proxy.
Hmmm... about the commentators.
First game's commentator wasn't too good. He was stuttering and it looked like he wasn't really used to commentating.
Second game's commentators were pretty good. One kept on talking the whole game and explaining things but he was kind of soft-voiced. The other didn't talk as much but he had the enthusiasm a commentator should have.
Overall: the stream was nice. Maybe enlarge the score board and show items some more and everything is good.
People still need to get used to referencing HoN instead of DotA. Too much similarities and more familiarity to DotA makes it hard. For example... I'll always use "he blinks..." instead of "he portalled / portal keyed..." DotA's items are also easier to say and differenciate especially since when in a clash you need to you as much abbreviations as possible in order to describe everything. "Perfect use of BKB" is a lot easier than "Perfect use of Shrunken Head" (Its not abreviate-able since SH is kinda too short)
I like the dota terms. I've never even played dota but it took a matter of a week to pick up, and being able to communicate better with people who played a lot of dota.
but if you give it time everyone will go to hon terms
