Nice, thanks for doing this. There was plenty of criticism in stream (constructive and otherwise) but this is a smart way to bring it together into an organized “to do” list of sorts, and I applaud your receptiveness to criticism.
-Appreciate that you guys know the game well enough to look past what’s going on at face value; sometimes a quick foray into strategy or tactics helps put the gameplay in perspective
-I like that you comment on team comps and their strengths, and talked about which team was general draft and which was pre-made to dispel any misconceptions about balance and favoritism
-You pronounce character names correctly. seriously. (I got a lot of mileage out of “ghant” from the choctaw qualifier but I couldn’t stand listening to that caster’s callouts e.g. “freezey bullets”, “causing muckus”, etc.)
-Camera work. I’m sure this sort of thing takes practice and will improve naturally over time, but specifically I felt like there was much too much third-person, character-specific camera focus rather than a broader birds-eye view. There were a number of times where I knew things of interest were going on elsewhere on the field, or even behind the character you’d chosen to shadow, but I had to infer what happened because I couldn’t see what was going on. It seems self-limiting to remain on the same perspective for longer than ten seconds or so unless they are really running the game somehow. It sometimes felt like we as spectators were confined to “playing in someone’s shoes” rather than knowing what’s going on everywhere in the grander sense.
-Sometimes you guys would go too deep down the rabbit-hole of balance and character discussion; there was a moment where discussion of alani became your focus to the extent that you seemed to forget to change the camera for a few minutes and neglected talking about what was going on right then in the game. Ultimately I think you guys are knowledgeable enough to give nice little character insights every now and then but remember that the focus should really remain on the game at hand rather than broader balance discussions (maybe that stuff is better suited for the draft phase).
Otherwise, I think WalrusCrow had some good QoL things that he mentioned in terms of color changes and stuff. Beyond that it was a fairly fun stream, and I quite appreciate that you aren’t leaving it to players to stream for themselves.
