so i don't know what you ignorant morons are talking about cause i had no problem at all finding, logging onto and, watching the webcast; with the exception of a few down times earlier friday morning and for maybe 10-15 minutes today (saturday). other than that i felt that the quality of footage was great, and the angles of the cameras to me where awesome; especially down the snake tape when you could see teams battling to get to the 50 U. and personally i would like to say thank you to the USPL for hiring these guys to do this webcast because if it weren't for them i wouldn't have gotten a chance to view this great event.

compared to the PSP's first pay per view cast (cup with pat as director), i dont think there is much comparison to be honest. No offense to nicky, but he's not cut to be a comentator just yet, the quality was not as nice as i was hoping for, and also: 7 man fields are not good for "live viewing" unless you can see most of the field. It got really boring watching the U all day when all i could see is the back of a players jersey.

i dont blame it on the camera guys though, i just dont find 7 man anywhere near as exciting to watch as xball...however i think that 7 man can be packaged for a better view...it's just going to take some creative camera placement and some money thrown into it.

D+ for a first cast imo.

well I think the stream got better as the day went on, and it was smooth transmission at around 3 central ... My opinion is that it is ok and worth $3.

Things to improve

Skyview camera angles, breakout camera angles, snake camera angles

Better commentators, Nicky and inc. are a little too immature and can't have a serious conversation for more than 20 minutes. They would make great co hosts but you are missing one guy to lead the topics and keep everything informative and entertaining (Yes, like Matty Marshall) ...

The venue looks great, camera quality is better on firefox

It was pretty good for a first try. I had a few technical problems but nothing I couldn't fix myself.

Also though when you guys send the USPL email out use spellchack and grammar check, there were a few errors lol.

I thought it was ok, I got the 3 day pass and Friday it worked great but today I had some difficulty viewing I emailed tech support and 10 minuets later it was working. Yeah kinda ****ty but good they were quick to respond.

Also the camera and quality wasn't anything awesome but at least it was something for 7 dollars ( come on you cant complain at that price. )

I think that if allot of people paid and they now see that this is something that they can now invest a little more money into its only going to get better as time goes on.

Well thats my opinion.

Sky Cam angles would be great, like 3-4 angles in the sky. Commentating wasn't that bad, I enjoyed the fact that he just had people walk in and start talking about the event, the game, ext. My main thing is the sky angles.

I would like 50 HD cameras with flawless live feed. Helicopters over the field, beverages and all of it for free. Or I could have Matty Marshall. I will pay $10 just to listen to the guy for a day and if I watch some paintball that can only be a plus.

It was a lot of fun to see the Utah (U-bunker) in action, but my issue was that half the time you couldnt see who the person was battling with. If the USPL adds an overview camera that shows the whole field so that you can tell where the players are, and then uses the sideline cameras to zoom in on intense action when it's going down, they will improve the quality of the webcast 10 fold.

On another note, what do you guys think about the Utah bunker? I think it has been pretty awesome so far.

mines worked flawlessly since i emailed tech guys on friday. the quality is fine and i dont mind paying the small amount if it was like the psp. only thing i think needs improving is the angles of cameras

I've been pretty disappointed so far. The audio is coming through fine but the video has been choppy a lot. When it is actually live, the quality is terrible. The camera guys have been doing a decent job, but it's annoying when someone would fill the U then the camera would pan to the back center.

I think they should get another announcer. I've watched most of it with the sound off and music playing. It would be nicer to have better field audio to drown Cuba out if he's going to continue to be the announcer in the future.

Overall, it was only $3 so I can't complain too much, but I won't be buying it again for future events.

Videos not good, webcast is sloppy, right now it says Blast vs endurance on the screen, no scoreboard on screen and sides don't change when they switch sides of the field. Need higher and wider angles. NPPL webcast was much better.
