Fortress Forever Pickup League Casts

Gunna try and get various people to cast just for fun. Hope you all enjoy these as much as playing in them.

Big thanks to Elmo for allowing me to use his music in my stream, it's really awesome and fits in nicely.

If you wanna catch these games live (and get a real listen to Elmo's music) watch for my tweets when I go live. The link for the stream is in my signature.

I like how you had less of a default "caster" voice here. Sounded more like regular conversations, less forced emphasis on certain "caster" words and phrases. Gives you more character, makes it less cookie cutter. Caster voice is kinda a hard concept to explain for me, but I know it's all I did when I casted with you, and is easy to fall into.

Also I feel like the spectator controls could use an update. I think it'd be cool if the flag was a spectatable entity. Also something simple like having 1-0 keys being bound to players, making it easy to auto jump between different players. (idk if something like that is already in place) Maybe also if there was a way of setting up camera binds to certain areas of a map, like how you can have the flag info where it says FR, foyar, mid ramps, ect. A duel spectator window would also be nice. (something that's implemented in q4s promod) So you could have two povs on a split screen. Then you could always have a camera angle on the flag, and another one to switch between different players or free cam views. I think that would be invuable for FF seeing as how split up the action can be some times between front line and FR.

Just a few things for the devs to consider that could go a long way in streaming and helping FF become a more viable spectator sport.

Keep it up neon. And good job hadez, you guys have some pretty good cast chemistry.

Yeah I've brought up some things to squeek, mainly being camera jump to flag carrier. I love all those ideas though FDA and I wish we could have them. The one issue is the dual screen is I thought it is basically rendering 2 games at once. Maybe I'm thinking of something else but I'm pretty sure I've seen a discussion about it elsewhere.

That last match did feel more casual, though I mean keeping the caster persona will always happen but it's a little easier when there is two people as you can rely on each other to explain/contrast/follow up on various things. For basically 3-4 years I've worked with a SC2 caster who's really big now so I kinda wanted to follow in his steps a bit. I think a more casual approach would be better if there is two casters. When you're alone its hard to do that since there is so much going on that you alone have to keep up with.

This is a blast and I love doing it and I hope to keep bringing you guys the best stuff I can. Its all a learning experience.

As FDA has said, good work.

For someone new to the game, this gives me an idea of some of the tactics and positions. Yes, pickups help with this, but sometimes when you are stuck in one position you dont get to see how/where the other defence play

thanks for watching brotatoes. play your matches so me and neon can continue casting. also if you're looking to co-cast with me for any upcoming matches feel free to send me a message and ill let you know if i am available to cast with you. like neon said, much easier to keep the game commentary/topics flowing if there are 2 people casting together rather than just one.
