if you had to pick one series to watch, or maybe one series to show a friend who isnt into the game, what would you pick?

damage numbers add a lot to viewing experience imo, so my pick would probably be the i63 GF or i65 UBF. some of the recent cups had some great series too but online kinda devalues it for me (even though imo the production quality has been top tier online and i love the pheonix red huds). the s31 7 vs ascent final was great too if i remember, very exciting at the time.

going to older times, some top picks imo are:
-i58 GF
-i55 LBF (and GF ig, maybe UBF too? not sure if ive seen that one in full tbh)
-i52 LBF (and LBSF)
-i49 LBSF is of course a classic

as a little bonus, going to other games, i thought the astralis vs mousesports final and the astralis vs navi finals last year were super exciting. damwon vs suning was great too. the last rapha vs raisy final in quake was also awesome, and the 2016 rapha vs evil quakecon final is a banger.

i52 lower bracket finals for me though.

I remember Rewind 1 had some bangers.

Grand Final was good
Se7en/EVL Lower bracket finals I remember casting and it being good. Gully was wild, skip the middle 20 minutes of Badlands. I think they played another series earlier that LAN in upper bracket and it was good too.

I have some spot memories of individual maps at Rewind 2 but I cant remember if the entire series was good (or if there were multiple maps for one):

Rewind 2:
Kings Crew vs Black Swan on Process I remember being super fun to cast, I think that was only a BO1 though.
I believe both Svift series vs Se7en and Ascent were good, but I cant really remember.
Se7en vs Ascent in 2 map series in groups was really good too, although I may be more so remembering some stand out individual plays.

Bonus: Favorite map I've casted is Jasmine Tea vs Crowns on Product at i58

My go to match to show people TF2 will always be Immunity/Mix^ on Snake.

Also have to shoutout ESEA S10 LAN Grands, where Mixup did the same thing to a b4nny team, winning Grands from the lower bracket. The quality of the VOD is not as good obviously, but that (and their UBF meeting) is some of the best TF2 I've ever seen.

there was an ascent (or something)/froyo grand finals or ubf in esea on granary. i think cornpop was casting. i have a vivid memory of one of them pushing last with 30 seconds left, both teams simultaneously wiping, and time expiring with no living players, point not capped, cornpop (?) saying "everyone's dead!" and then it went to golden cap.

i hope i'm remembering that right because it was incredible

i think froyo won the golden cap in about two minutes but whatever

Actually one I forgot.

S15 (i think) ozfortress. Ego (Mostly ex immunity) vs Jasmine Tea, best of 5, winner got the prize money, which they could either take their split of the pot, or take the entire pot and go to i58.

i55 UBF simply because of how shocking it felt at the time.

As for other games: I will never forget the last Quake Live final at Quakecon in 2016 between Rapha and Evil. Elder was especially crazy, but all of the maps were last minute nailbiters.

im probably really (extremely) biased but new team vs ascent in the recent cup was fucking nuts

i really like watching league so here are a few from that game that i really liked:
skt vs rox tigers @ worlds 2016 semis
insane conclusion to a multi year domestic rivalry, crazy plays on both teams
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2Sg3Xmpylk
g2 vs fnc @ 2019 lec summer finals
incredibly close series between two western teams, probably the peak of western league, both in terms of hype and gameplay
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6XWlPKsuBps
g2 vs rng @ worlds 2018 quaterfinals
perkz le blanc game five is legendary. This is the biggest upset in league of legends history.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E4ATLMwoTz8
g2 vs tl @ msi 2019 finals
watching tl get absolutely smacked by g2 was the most cathartic thing ive ever seen besides bjergsen picking zilean against bdd
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UA9eSaquE9w

EDIT:
I completely forgot about og vs psg lgd @ti8. i have no fucking clue how dota works but that shit was fucking nuts

I'm sadly relatively new to the comp scene and missed a lot of the good stuff from 2015-2018, so I'll pick something newer.

My two picks (both series I did production for, coincidence?) are either the S4 Main div. bronze match or the yomps memorial tourney grand finals.

That Main bronze match featuring an incredible reverse sweep and map disadvantaged comeback. The yomps tourney had no stakes and no prizes, but it felt different and the want for that title was incredibly high. Made for some very special moments, great action, and of course the jay spoons.

i58 LBF - Full Tilt vs Froyotech
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lccl0Cys_2s

✅ b4nny vs. Thalash beef in the months prior to i58 put a lot of pressure on both teams to turn up
✅ alleged drama with Muma at LAN (iirc he wanted to quit playing for Froyo halfway through the series but wasn't allowed to and started throwing just to piss off b4nny)
✅ Mike.
✅ Muma unveils Muma Rollouts

This was one for the ages. Doesn't matter that FT went on to lose Grand Finals. They already won here.
