    New co-caster?

    Since it's the community who are going to be listening to the casts and watching the VODs, why don't you let the community partake in the decision of the new co-caster? I don't mean to say let the HoN community choose who you employ, but at least let us give our imput as a whole. My suggestion, get a top tier level clip (around 2 minutes) of an action packed teamfight. Require the applicants to draft a play by play solo cast (similar to what zyori or breaky would do in an actual cast) and then provide the community with all of the options, and let us privately or publicly vote!

    Thanks if you like my idea

    I think it's little to no chance bro. I'm from Brazil too, but i think i couldn't handle it because i'm still trying to maximize my english abilities
    but if u fell u can do something, u should contact the S2 support. It would be awesome to have a fella Br in the S2 staff, i hope u can do it !

    Sadly, that's most of the community here.

    Why would have to relocate if its online casting? What is the salary?

    I'd rather see someone who doesn't do play-by-play. Someone who actually notices (the huge moving icon) when an item is bought or is not preoccupied with placing their catch phrases in every second sentence and actually has something to say as to why things happened the way they did. Who actually cares about the play-by-play, it's nothing more than something to fill the silence during fights and ganks, get someone like that if you think it helps your viewer count or whatever, but for the love of god, get someone who stops the clueless babbling in between (HenryD).

    I agree too! The play by play was just my example.. You can't really do a mock cast that entails of talking about item builds unless you have them mock cast the entire thing. Which is still a viable option!

    Because Honcast has a studio being made (or nearly completeled) in the S2 office and the caster will likely be working in conjunction with the S2 team. Based on what Phil and Breaky have done during their run with Honcast one can assume you will also be spending time representing S2 and HoN at conventions etc.
    Always blow on the pie. Safer communities together.

    I'd like to see more Diva cast, he's no too bad tbh

    as long as he doesn't fap over Bkid how ever.

    Where does this leave Zyori? Is he not going to be the co-caster anymore or? Good luck to all the applicants btw.

  18. #18
    Too bad I'm still studying at uni, oh well, good luck to the applicants!

    I'd rather have someone who knows what the hell they're talking about when it comes to mechanics and has some decent competitive insight (players, team compositions, etc...). We don't need another person who can shout 10 words/sec during a huge teamfight.

    No more Zyori?
