Anyone else LOL at the cheesy "play by play" announcing of game streams?

Pointing out your stupidity is not trolling

LOL @ Social media sites, it's for nerds who can't talk to people in real life
LOL @ watching movies/shows through the internet on their computer, it's for losers with no one to watch with

Sorry man it's the way of the future, e-sports gets way bigger every single year. You can laugh at it all you want but it's not going anywhere. Times change, you can change with them or turn into one of those "hardcore" 30 year old guys talking about "kids these days" and "back in my day".

It's no wonder there is a big segment of the public that thinks that gamers are nerdy idiots....We've got nerdy idiots doing play-by-play calls of gaming tournaments like DOTA2. i just saw a couple of the streams of the competition and it was amazingly sad.

I don't know which is more embarrassing; the awful quality of the play-by-play itself...or the fact that these guys clearly think they are "cool" for doing what they are doing.


lol Are you just complain about this now? We been doing this for 100 years. It's called sports.

You should watch fighting game tournaments instead. They don't try to be squeaky clean like esports. It's a lot more fun to watch.
#18SnipeStarPosted 7/10/2014 7:47:37 AM(edited)
yeah my buddy watches pro LoL streams on one monitor while he plays on the other..... its really, really sad (and hilarious)

watching the losers lose it and burst into tears when their teams get beat out of the tournament is just..... loool

People thought that well well before eSports commentators, and will continue to think that for awhile.

And... who cares? I mean, honestly, why do you care enough to even make this topic? "Lolz, people are doing something they enjoy doing, how amazingly sad." I'm not trying to say these guys aren't nerds but... who cares?


Don't ruin TC's attempt to bolster his waning ego by mocking others. Also I always love the irony of posters calling people out for being "nerds" while being a member of/posting in a gaming forum. Also, a "big segment" of the public are nearly-illiterate toolboxes so I wouldn't put too much stock in their opinion.
