Granted playing video games could be considered wasting time and watching others play video games magnifies that.... that said.... later today the King of the Seas Tourney kicks into full swing. I lack the mental fortitude to deal with clans and the stress of organized E sports (retired 2200 Warcraft player in 2's and 3's) But if you have some time this stuff is riveting, the announcers really get into it and you get to see the best players in the game do what they do...

Get your chores done and tune in later today...I'm looking forward to it. 1PM Pacific.

I'm going to guess that no more than 1% of the active player base ( or forum base ) cares about KOTS.  That is a shame because it should be the focal point of all competitive players - to participate and succeed in KOTS.  Frankly, all the recent decisions by WG about this game tend to reflect a desire to entrap the lowest common denominator to spending money on this game in the hopes of buying an advantage, not in learning the skills to become a better player. Typical forum fare involves a plea from PVE "only" players to reduce the number of DD's in co-op due to capping/xp considerations.  Asking these same players to watch elite ones compete for the best in NA and possibly the best in the World is answered by the sound of crickets.

Eh, I’ve seen a few and not been terribly impressed.  The teams look like they’re just playing a script and it’s kinda boring.  Someone finally makes a move and either gets rewarded or punished, 30 seconds of excitement out of a 15 minute match.  

The lack of unicum skill in every player in Randoms does bring an element of chaos that can be frustrating but can also be fun and even funny.  Appreciate your potatoes!

Ya. But maybe someone will tune in based on this thread and get in to it and learn something...I can't wait, it's really fun to see great plays or mistakes made and try to gauge what you would have done in that spot.

This is why people love watching high school football on Sundays. The NFL is just boring.

Everything about these streams is terrible, no one knows what games are being streamed, or by who.....The keep posting results that are old.....they continually are making technical mistakes and have no clue how to stream... It's as professional as a peewee Tball baseball game without a ball and the T stand.

I was really excited about this, its complete Bush League concerning the coverage of it.

There are 10 Streamers. How many did you try? Some are better than others. They are saving their top streamers for the finals.

no one knows what is going on, no one knows who is streaming what, they are all talking to each other like they are trying to put together an ikea couch, who do you want to stream, I dunno, you choose... meanwhile best of three games are over and they are running last weeks results or who is up 1-0 …...

Why do I have to ask 7 streamers who is carrying a specific match and no one knows..... whiskey tango foxtrot

Do I get anything in game for this?

IF not... why would you want to watch someone else play a game?

Heck of a question, why do I watch sports, or dramas or the opera......TY. You may have cleared 80% of my calendar for life.

It usually starts out that way. They should be better organized after the first day. I'm watching Gaishu and Kirinlchiban. They seem to be doing a good job during the match.

By all means, go and show us how its supposed to be done

They are a 1 person casting and production team. If you feel you can do better, then go for it.

They have to coordinate with the teams that are hosting the games, get into the training rooms with the right ships, keep up with their overlays and scenes, and never mind they have to announce the games as well and hopefully be interesting in their broadcast in between games while they are doing all that stuff. and do that for 5 hours straight.

Shut up. I don't run the WG homepage where they advertise streamers to only to click on them during the times of the games to watch them play Minecraft. Just shut up.

Thats WG's problem, not the streamers problem. The organizers had a handy little list made up on the discord.

Don't fault the streamers for doing this for the love of the game and WG not having a schedule up.....

If they cant put together a professional streaming operation don't advertise it on the home page. This isn't jr high volleyball.

epic comeback. I would happily do so if I could get the chance, 30 minutes of coordination would have been a world better than that what happened this afternoon

They look for volunteers every tournament. Put your money where your mouth is.
