Congratulations to everyone for VOD #500!

As the posting said, use this topic to discuss our classic moments in commentating and the commentators of days gone by and the here and now. Keep things civil though.

In my opinion it's: Moblin>Echo>Panczasu>Designer Hat>Destro>rest

Although Moblin didn't purely gamecast, it was a bit the Moblin show. But it was epic as it was, especially the rant about uprising, which was AWESOME

Its not directed at you, its because the video is retarded and I'd put money on it Destro made it. Why do a video that leaves out half the commentators, wheres Czone, pokey89 (ok he isn't a commentator per-say but he still made some of the best casts in my opinion) Rockwood, PANCZASU, Zero etc etc.

Just looks like whoever made the vid just put his mates in it who he thought were worthy commentators.

Fortunately the 2nd vid saved the day which was casted by Czone, if it was casted by Destro that really would have put the icing on the cake.

Yeah I agree that Zero, Panczasu, Pokey, Rockwood, Blackwolf and probably some more I'm forgetting are really missing. Of course I wuold've liked to make an appearance, but you know Pancake Zero and Pokey just deserve it a lot.
Also I think you didn't quite ace the moments, but it's cool that you put so many effort into it.

Time was a bit of a factor as well in this. We went from #470-something to 500+ in about 10 days. Coordinating all the GC's best stuff (past and present) took a lot of time and also editing the thing was pretty time consuming as well.

@masKeD - If it makes you any better, than fine, it was directed at you tongue.gif

Seriously though this is a potentially touchy subject due to the fact that all the responses are based on personal opinions. Thus the keep things civil comment.

I am sorry i couldn't include every commentator.. that was the original intention but our current commentators kicked my butt and made so many vods so quickly. I had over 200 hours of vods to cover, with 20+ commentators... and no... i didn't just pick my friends or else you would have seen twice as many people in the video ;p. It came down to how well i could re-encode peoples vods... some people used codecs that i couldnt get to work (such as zero/czone) i have 50 gigs of vods on my computer right now, i could have made it 2 hours long if i had the time but just didnt.

Anyways, big thanks to the commentators over the last 500 vods, even those who were not official GR commentators... thanks for your contribution just as much!

Lots of hard work has gone into the VOD section here. I'm honored just to be part of it.

Thanks to everyone who makes and watches the videos. This community is really fantastic.

It feels kinda sad not to be included after 36 VoDs spammed, but I understand why that happened and it's still the gesture that counts (although I could think of one great moment with MIGs that could represent me laugh.gif). Great job destro, can't wait your vid for 1000 VoDs!

Amazing job, all RA3 VoDcasters I wub.gif you!

And btw, after I make my 100th VoD (which will be uploaded soon) I'm planning to make some new VoDs for you guys up here that still remember me. smile.gif

yea definately keep old vods you are proud of... downloading and encoding from wegame was the biggest piss off frustration of the entire thing.

thanks masked. thanks for your great input.

flv files are shit for reverse encoding, which is the reason i had so many troubles with certain peoples files aka why we are having this discussion in the first place.

i wasn't being insulting, its just worked for me in the past. If you've had trouble with them, you see im not magic and can tell these things, im just saying they've worked for me. Though finding decent software to convert them has been an issue.





But hey i've affended you somehow so i apologize. Don't be so touchy
