An Updated List of Casters

An Updated List of Casters

Postby TheKoopa » 02 Apr 2016, 18:59

Felixlighta/Gyle [Gyle]
Probably needs no introduction. Watches like professional entertainment with a voice to rival any sports commentator. Uploads multiple casts weekly. Good range and brilliant 'branding' of videos from ladder 1v1 to 'average joes' and 'epics' (>1hour long games)
http://www.youtube.com/user/felixlighta/videos (1080p)

BRNKoINSANITY [BRNKoINSANITY]
Very active with multiple uploads a week. Good mix of casts with focus leaning towards entertainment rather than deep strategic analysis. Runs a popular 'Insanity of Saturday' with a cast of a map followed by a live playthrough with input from the FAF community. Other uploads not FAF but often enjoyable to SC players with regular RTS reviews in the never ending quest to find a 'better Supreme Commander'. (Also well labelled, I'm serious having a clear naming convention for your casts doubles your view count).
https://www.youtube.com/user/BRNKoINSANITY (1080p)

Zocky Zock [Zock]
Lessons and casting from FAF's best player. Uploads range from 4 a week to 1 per 6 months. So he'll be staying in the 'active' section.
Featuring lessons with other players (you'll learn a lot) as well as casts focusing on detailed analysis of games. Usually uploads and casts in batches for events like tournaments.
http://www.youtube.com/user/zock666666/videos (720p-1080p)

Speed2cz [speed2]
Solid player with focus on team game casts POV. Has since began his [Learning FAF] series which is his commentary over various team and 1v1 games. Also has 'School of FAF' series which can be found on youtube or at the forum link below.
https://www.youtube.com/user/speed2cz/videos (720p)

Non-English

Профессионал Юрий Иванов [???] NOW IN ENGLISH
I cant read that either but Zlo tells me it means Professional Yuri Ivanov. Good quality production casts but I can't say too much about the commentary because ony a handul of casts in English.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCnvz2rVBkQajGUiekDQ3Hg

Pochy Poch [Poch]
French casts and that's literally all I can tell you because I failed French. Some POV streams (also in French).
https://www.youtube.com/user/PochForgedAlliance/videos (1080p)

Phorsicht
German caster/POV gameplay (pretty newb though so don't expect high level teamplay ;D)

Inactive Archive

17Luxun [Lu_Xun_17] Watch to Learn
Really good POV replay casts from one of FAF's best players. Uploads between once a week to once per 6 months. All casts 1v1 ladder matches. Great strategy discussion and all round commentary with a vibrant voice to keep it entertaining. Also nothing quite explains the genuine happiness of hearing Luxun say 'Scoot'.
http://www.youtube.com/user/17LuXun/videos (1080p)

Praisegugleourmaster [TA4LIFE] Watch to Learn
Sadly hasn't uploaded in a long time. Longest running caster with the largest volume of videos by far. Very varied with excellent commentary on strategy throughout. Tutorial series', POV learning series', recommended for everyone.
Quality casting with excellent strategy analysis.
http://www.youtube.com/user/praisegugleourmaster/videos (1080p)

Inside Seton [Styrbjorn]
Excellent casts of Seton's. Strangely low view count.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkldHI ... gwA/videos

TheForgedAllianceColonel [ColonelSheppard]
One of the best tutorial series' out there by the player who literally wrote the thread on how to play for newbie 'Help, i'm new!' - in the forum. As well as some funny casts and entertaining short videos and a couple of podcasts.
http://www.youtube.com/user/SupremestCommander/videos (1080p)

Swkoll [Swkoll]
7 months inactive. Good mix.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3972dE6Eyc

ZaphodX [ZaphodX]
Moved totally to Planetary Annihilation, but still has a huge FA playlist from months ago. No Longer active in FA, just thought deserved a mention if people want tto check out some older videos. https://www.youtube.com/user/ZaphodX1

Petricpwnz [TohouMasterRace]
No Casts more recent than 3 months ago but may become active again.
https://www.youtube.com/user/Petricpwnz/videos

JackSparrw20111 [Napalm]
New to this list but has casted for a while. Solid, experienced caster.
https://www.youtube.com/user/jacksparrow20111/videos

Nibelosky
Decent casts with nice quality and has been uploading steadily for 6 months. Relatively unsure with earlier casts but can clearly tell the quality is improving with later casts. One to watch. Also has put in nice effort with intro.
https://www.youtube.com/user/Nick0836/videos

Aulexer [Aulex]
Casting with much profanity [NSFW].
https://www.youtube.com/user/Aulexer/videos (1080p)

VoRCom [Com]
A moderator casting FAF! Hey! At risk of getting put into the inactive bin, needs more replays!
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCawBd72azRNSScHUNqHMcAA/videos

SnowZeWolf [SnowZeWolf]
Mix of FAF and other games.
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCHHZow ... dQieNep6BA

CescoNZ
Good quality commentary & casting with solid technical quality of audio and video.


Briang [YouLikeThat]
And inside look into sentons and other replay analysis
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCd6fXbom-NW2XzPzN9-DIMA

About this list:

a) Caster's Get Priority Based on:

Minimum 720p. 1080p will have priority over you.
Minimum of 5 full game casts [Parts 1-5 count as 1]
Active within last 2 months. Unless your on an extended leave or vacation or such I'll move inactive casters to the archive section. Best practise is to say what your upload schedule is in your videos like Gyle telling us he is moving house or BRNK saying is CPU is whack and he's waiting on thermo paste. Exceptions; so far just Zock and Gyle. Zock goes through phases and Gyle has a family now and has made it clear his schedule is going to be a bit less now.

Labeling helps! Have a naming convention! Seriously this like doubles your view count.

Quality. This does not equal personal preference. TA's efficiency calculations might send you to sleep and you might want to cry when Gyle misses an experimental but that's not what it's being rated on. Speech being clear and unbroken, good 'camera shots', quality production (no hissing, editing, clear etc is. )

b) Getting on the list - if you fit all the above PM & post in this thread me and I'll put you on. I'll periodically update and put new casters/move the list about but if I don't know about you I won't be able to put you on obviously. YouTube only, not twitch!

Koppa, any way you could organize this list with a priority for new players? I think a lot of people who need this reference are newer to the community and would benefit from watching videos by fellahs like Heaven, speed2, Jagged, etc over Gyle first.
Maps are important for FAF!
