I feel part of the problem is that there's no way to know if there's anything to actually watch on the stream. I'll tune in at like 7:05, nothing, go do something else for 15 mins, come back, still nothing and no one would be talking, come back an hour later, there's 2 minutes left on a 4-1 game, so on, so forth. I have no actual data, but it certainly feels like there's more downtime than actual game happening. I'm the kinda dude who will just leave the stream open whether I'm watching it or not, but it's really easy to see how frustrating that's got to be for most people.

I've suggested playing frag videos and stuff before, and that always kept my attention, but I just came up with another dumbass idea: what about casting games that have already happened that day? Like, if you cover froyo vs. svift, but blanc vs velocity is happening at the same time, maybe get the stv demo and cast it during the downtime?

at least put a bracket on the screen. but that should happen at lan too imo. i wish esports in general would take a minute to study what makes watching espn so smooth. little stuff like that can go a long way.
