The commentary was generally good, although it would have helped if the commentators were looking up cards as they went or had a little better knowledge of what some of the cards do. Really appreciated the updates throughout the day.
sorry, but for a non-mpc style event this is completely impossible. I did most of the deciding of feature matches, and granted I had to do this while playing the event, but as soon as pairings were made they were called, and I didn't really have any time to check anything other than their records and how many times they'd been featured - because the round had to begin. Any longer and a 12 hour event would have been a 13 hour event.
we managed to feature 7 of the 6-2s, 1 of the 7-1s, and 3 of the 5-3s.
I wish we had seen Joe Olson - especially after the year he had, but my priority was to feature players on pace to make the day 3 rather than good deck matchups.
Day 3, Reid and I collaborated to pick the matchup for round 1, and we both thought that Sokol vs Emil was the most interesting matchup after looking at decklists. But we had 15 minutes to look at the decklists, and neither of us were playing in the day. For day 2 I don't think we could have done better at that, though there are definitely other ways to improve the stream.
