Is like they all agreed to never have a quiet moment, look at ESL right now. They never shut up, its really annoying, I have to mute and put some music, every time I unmute, yep they are talking.
I dont need extra hype or entretaintment, we already love StarCraft, and lets be real, no massive new players are coming in, we dont need explanations of every silly thing, we already know. We just want to watch pro games with their sounds and maybe just little comments. This is not a pro team game, we dont talk while playing, we are fine just watching, we play alone.
The solution: limit game to just one caster, tell him to not talk too much and show games from the players perspective. You would learn far more seeing where the pros lock their cameras and manage their army than listeting to 9 hours of podcast really. The early game from a player perspective is very active and fast, contrary to the third view approach is used now, it makes the game look slow.
That brings me to another mayor issue with tournaments, they never show the player cam, thats what we want to see, thats what we need to see to learn, how the game is played, not how it looks from a third person perspective.
Right now you could watch a game and have zero idea the player had: Locked based and army cameras, when they macro and when they micro, army and building hotkeys, what do they hotkey, how many groups they have for army, etc (even though some player can opt to hide this in game).
A third person view gives the feeling of a slow early game when in fact is not, is very dynamic. Maybe this is why the casters feel the need to talk and talk and talk. Also it doesnt help they all stream and ends being more about themselves than about the game.
GSL used to stream and save the player cams, it was pure pleasure to watch them. Is a shame they dont do it anymore, they sometimes stream it but never store it. I watched Rouge kill Dream in the latest GSL. It was incredible to watch him play.
