Look forward to the WPL finals streams coming up soon. A lot of time and energy is going into it.
As for ending streams early.. I haven't really had a rule regarding it one way or another. Whomever is running the stream usually has priority but I don't blame Lust for doing it. I may have done the same thing in his shoes. We won't be ending any of the finals streams early, that much I can guarantee.
Remember the EU Grand finals are tomorrow, starting at 19GMT we will have a panel discussion before the match, be sure to tune in to here Captain Lust and Ironhawk cast this intense final between AE and RP at https://www.twitch.tv/bladecast_tv
Hope you all enjoyed the streaming! Congratulations to Apis Europae for the win and thank you very much to Captain Lust for being our host tonight! He was joined by Tardet, Nevino & Viktor on the panel, and Ironhawk for the in-game commentary.
Huge shout-out to Deafening & Nevino aswell for taking care of the stream! Let us know if you liked the format!
We've also recorded the Bronze Match thanks to Aporta. It will be uploaded soon!
In all seriousness though, the more professional we'll get, the most likely it will be that we only get native english speaker or people who speak english that good that you can't quite make the difference bewteen them and a guy from UK or North America for instance, which isn't really my case. On the last 6-7 major CSGO events, the casting crew + the analyst desk was at 99% filled with native english speaker, with a few exceptions such as a former french player (who spoke rather fluently and without any too strong accent) and a analyst from Eastern Europe who despite being one of those who had the deepest game knowledges, often gets mocked or criticized for his strong accent.
This said, as of late, finding people who fit those criterias 'Having something interesting to say, deep community/game knowledges, perfect english speaker, and agrees on going on-cam' is rather complicated which often means we're filling the blanks because nobody else wants to.
