I agree with mostly everything that has been said. The announcers were completely unprofessional, crude, and downright annoying. I was there on Friday and Saturday and I couldn't help but be disappointed by the lost opportunity for our sport. One of the many benefits to playing paintball on Huntington Beach is the opportunity to attract new potential players and fans. If I didn't have any knowledge about what paintball is about, I would have had a very different perception of it based off the announcers.

One of those announcers was drunk i think. He kept ****ing up simple words and ****, at least at the event. Also, as I was leaving I was walking up to Matt Marshal and I heard him some kid ask why he wasnt doing the announcing. Matts response: 'Cause Im the enemy.

He must've done alot of bad impersonations if he offended someone who's left hand is Japanese. No disresect, just saying. I wasn't there but did watch alot of the feed, when it was working, and alot of the commentary was ****. I must've missed all the offensive comments. Not knowing what the score was, who was playing, who just got out. But keep in mind they often had the players themselves in the booth with them to help.

Also, the event was not free... People paid thousands of dollars to be there and hear a guy who drive people away from our sport

I had more fun watching the comments from the people watching the live feed on the commentary vs watching the games.

i can only speak for saturday and i haven't seen any videos yet but the announcers i heard really need some help, bad.

how difficult is it to just let the music play? i understand that you want to get the crow energized and into the game and everything but i think that if you don't have something relevant to announce you might want to shut up.

it seemed like the announcer loved the sound of his own voice way more than the sport.....

Agreed. Matty should probably be MC'ing. He's the best public, non-player face for our sport. Unfortunately he's also the best commentator.


I thought Frank did a good job with Finals though.

I didnt really pay attention to the announcing that much. It was a little odd; they called our teams names out and then immediatley started talking about a blood drive or something. Didnt seem to flow very well.

I thought Chris did a solid job MC'in last year.

The sexual references were a bit heavy and I agree that needs to be dealt with. Overall though, the MCs were lively and kept the crowd entertained during low points of the games. I enjoyed listening to them throughout the tournament (at HB).

I think they should go for more paintball-oriented commentating. He sounded like a guy behind the mic at a shady strip joint.

They should fly me over, i'd do it! LOLz,
I heard a few games on teh Webcast. They miss named teams, scores and players. They were talking about the dorito side when they were showing the snake, they were talking about a different game in the middle of the one that was going on, sometimes there was nothing being said during the game, then CLICK "middle of sentence" talking started. So they weren't paying attention to the games at all.

They need people that can comment on the games AND talk about Paintball stuff between points, or during breaks. Talk about the sponsors and teams, various off season details, new roster changes, etc etc. Discuss the NPPL going forward, who's going to win, whos shooting what, rivalries etc etc.

PSP Webcast has been mentioned here so many times cause they are always discussing whats going on. They have 1 main guy *MM* and now have Lasoya in the booth too, generally with 1 other pro player to chat too and get their oppinion from. There's always something being talked about on the PSP Webcast, never any "dead air"

.

It was very hard for me to get my parents to support me when I first started playing in the early 2000's. It was embarrassing for me to bring them to events or to the field when trashy talk was going on. They really hated having their 14 year old kid hearing such bad talk all the time. It took a lot of convincing to get them to let me keep playing.
