Asif I'm the only one who is expressing those observations. Get the wool off your eyes sheep.
I think people are taking this chess part too seriously. It was just meant to be distraction from the actual game to see how they can multitask.A tablet should be provided to let players to make chess moves online (lichess for example). This way there is no need to have chess board and camera to show the board. Also 2D board is less confusing.
OK, then there is no need to make commentary on chess game. Nili better focus on AOE game instead of struggling with commentary of chess game.I think people are taking this chess part too seriously. It was just meant to be distraction from the actual game to see how they can multitask.
1. You can't compare a bo37 showmatch between two friends who livestream their POV with a LAN tournament organized by a company.What about 9000$ for fun games between Viper and Daut
Actually, the wonky event would need DauT even more than some other, more serious one. Why actually do you need to have the best of the best players for some random troll games when you can have lord DauT instead, for maximum entertainment value?As wonky as this launch event was, I feel like it should have included DauT, he would have fit right in.
I am 47 and I quite enjoyed it. I see it as livestreamed party/aoe2 gathering. There were many hickups and awkward moments but the best way to learn is learning while doing.Wanted to give some feedback but everything has been said already. Nothing to add, I agree with the feedback on the chess and guess who games. I didn't like that all. I believe enough entertainment can come from high level itself and I don't believe that these funny things will help the game (and EscapeTV) forward in the end. Most of your audience (20+ years or older? I don't know actually, does someone know that?) doesn't want to watch things like this. They want to see intense high level games and rivalries.
Anyway, congratulations on the first event. I really like the initiative and really hope you will succeed. @EscapeAoE: Please use the feedback. I believe almost everyone in the community really likes the initiative! :-)
