Send me your replays and I'll cast them!

Hey hey people! 8)

Seeing as SoScared has apparently vanished without a trace, I'm going to try filling the void he left in the community by starting to cast replays and uploading them to youtube.

This is where you - yes, I am looking at you, dear reader (and dare I say you look dashing right now in your blue shirt?) - come into play:
Send me replays of your best game(s) and I'll shoutcast them if they are good!

The guidelines are as follows:

-The game should have been played on the newest release, since there is no backwards compatibility for older replays.

-I'll gladly accept 1v1s, teamgames or FFAs, but I won't cast Tox maps since they always end up in a clusterfuck.

-Off-meta games are highly appreciated, as the current meta tends to be a bit samey (looking at you, Hinds+AA+Artillery spammers!)

-Games should not be longer than 40 minutes, although I'll make exceptions for really good matchups with highly skilled players.

I'll post the link once the first match goes up; maybe there will be some live content in the future.
Currently trying to shoot for one cast per week (kind of a "replay of the week" - thing).
Thanks for participating!

Hey FiveAces, good to hear someone is going to fill in for SoScared! Maybe you could link us to your Youtube channel?

Indeed. These replays are from the previous release. There are some good/entertaining games for sure. I hope others will post single good games so that you dont have to seek through them... but if you need material: https://www.dropbox.com/s/8mt1wegcfoquf ... s.rar?dl=0

I have a really good 1v1 vs sinfonia if they don't mind the upload?

Reach, absolutely, I'd be happy to cast it!
Sinf and you are both experienced players, so it should be a great game.

Murto, I don't have any content on my channel as of yet.
I'll post the link once I get my first replay uploaded (which should happen somewhere in the range from Sunday to Wednesday)!

all of my matches are in the playtest due to current balance issues in Release 20150614

Well I can't see sinfonia in the user list so I guess I'll just upload it.

Great match and excellent commentating!
Really liked how clearly you explained everything that was going on.

Yes, really nice commentating FiveAces! I too loved the explanations and hope to see many more casts like that in the future.

As for the replay itself it was poor game on my part but I thought the fake bases and early drops were executed so nicely that I just had to submit it. Well played sinfonia.

Yes, entertaining for sure! Good game, good commentary.

A tip for the casting: use the numbers to switch between views. It is entertaining to see what a player (doesnt) see. I believe 1-9 allows quick switching and 0 is everyone's view. Test is out. If used correctly it is especially fun with sneak attacks.

I'm still alive:) I haven't given up this community yet and I'll have a little special something for you guys at the end of this summer;)

I'm very happy someone is picking up some regular casting. I've always looked to others in that regard as it is not really my thing. This cast was super good! I look forward for more. The new replay site should be of some good help.

Nice cast, kind of a meh game, I prefer bigger games as well if possible. Thanks Five!

Edit: Here's a decent 2v2 on segregation if you want to take a look (not a ton of off meta things though I don't think.) Saw that you didn't want to cast bigger games, kind of sucks but beggars can't be choosers.

Hey FiveAces :D

I've got 2 interesting games (at least for me) where they were a from a comeback sort of position. I would say I'm an alright player I guess.

One game is an FFA on the tiny map 3 players, and another was a 1 vs 1 on the double map version of your first YouTube showcase.

Both however are replays of the previous release 20150424.
