Any decent games in these first three? Really hate an experienced team stomping some unknowns.
pol vs WAY was okay...
dont watch the one with magebane going mid with bottle... just not worth your time
I enjoyed all 3 of the games, however I wish the other commentators would take a lesson from breakycpk and just commentate on whats happening and keep us the viewer informed. Many of the other shoutcasters are more inclined to shuffle between the heros and commentate on their item builds, often injecting their own opinions without keeping us up to the date on the match at hand, which I found very frustrating.
Overall, however, great work breakycpk and the honcast team.
I, myself rather would hear the color commentating than the announcing of events I can perceive by myself.
A lot more interesting are item builds, hero picks, why this battle went in favor of team X etc.
That kind of information is well and good, don't get me wrong. However, their is a stark difference between constructive color commentating outlining WHY things are happening and perhaps covering the metagame, and shoutcasters merely criticizing the players they are watching, criticizing their item builds, laughing at their mistakes, etc. which I heard some of in these HONCAST vods. It just comes off as a bit unprofessional is all. Again, breakycpk and a few of the commentators do a fantastic job! The others should follow his great example.
Heh. Trust me, if we ignored items the whole game, we'd never hear the end of it.
As a color commentator, it's my job to point out things that breaky might miss while he's keeping up with the action, as well as analyzing what's occurring in game. This sometimes entails saying things like "Magmus isn't doing his job right now. His team relies on him landing his ult and without his portal key due to his subpar farm, he can't do that." This is no different than any other sportscaster. If a player is failing his team in some way, it's the broadcaster's responsibility to point it out and explain why. I try to do this where I can, while also praising good plays.
I cannot speak for any of the other casters but this is how I do things. I try to be as professional as I can while also keeping the enjoyment level high for the viewers.
Also, some mistakes are just funny. :-p

At first I thought fountain shoot meatball.
I enjoy the casting with 2 people much better than solo cast for some reason.
Hon is more or less like football, less play by play more color commentating.
What ult was chronos supposed to stop on the pol vs way game? lawl.
