List of Casters

Felixlighta/Gyle [Gyle]
Back after a short break. 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 'epic' (>1 hour) casts.
Watch if:Your after a feature length & professional 'box set' series of FAF casts.
Avoid if:Your looking for detailed strategy/improve play. (1080p)

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).
Watch if: Entertaining casts with good commentary and quality production.
Avoid if: [Coming soon - witty dissuading comment] (1080p)

Zocky Zock [ZockyZock]
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.
Watch if: Your looking to learn & improve your FAF gameplay & want insightful strategy
Avoid if: Looking more for entertainment focussed casts. (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. (720p)

Great commentary from one of the best 1v1 players. Mix of POV and replay commentary.
Watch if: Your looking to learn & improve your FAF gameplay.
Avoid if: Your not really into 1v1 & prefer to stick to big, late game, team games. (720p)

CescoNZ [?]
Relatively active with nice mix of casts uploading 2-3 per month. . Good quality commentary & casting with solid technical quality of audio and video.
Watch if: You in the mood for good quality & mix of casts
Avoid if: (1080p) <<New Update

Keplergamer[SouldReaver(?)] [1080p]
New Caster. Didn't watch for very long because of the audio hiss. I'll let you watch and judge. ... ZgmJGebuws (1080p)
Watch if: You're a Ophiophilist
Avoid if: You're a Ophidiophobia


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. ... GUiekDQ3Hg

Pochy Poch[Poch]
French casts and that's literally all I can tell you because I failed French. Some POV streams (also in French). (1080p)

Inactive Archive
17Luxun [Lu_Xun_17] Watch to Learn (intermediate)CLASSIC
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'. (1080p)
Praisegugleourmaster [TA4LIFE] Watch to LearnCLASSIC
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. (1080p)
Inside Seton [Styrbjorn][/size]
Excellent casts of Seton's. Strangely low view count. ... gwA/videos
TheForgedAllainceColonel [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. (1080p)
Swkoll [Swkoll . 7 months inactive. Good mix.
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.
Petricpwnz [Petricpwns] No Casts more recent than 3 months ago but may become active again.
New to this list but has casted for a while. Solid, experienced caster.
Nibelosky [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.
]Aluexer [Aulex][/size]
Casting with much profanity [NSFW]. (1080p)
About this list.
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.
Labelling helps! Have a naming convetion! 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. )

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.

New Caster - Duh
Necromancy - Inactive caster becoming active
Watch to Learn - This is more subjective. Casters that I believe offer excellent quality educational casts including insightful commentary with near enough every cast. Also required to be newbie friendly.
Major Update - A big update in something. This need to be significant.
Classic - Inactive casters who were once the favourite of the community. Initially made so that newcomers to this list can still easily see TA & Luxun's casts.

Gyle sadly doesn't upload one cast weekly (and didn't do any in the last weeks), let alone multiple at the moment.

*checking Facebook* -> He did upload a cast :D

He's been moving house and getting married, but if we look at the last lot, [2hours, 3 weeks], [4 from 1 month ago], [6 from 3 months ago], [9 from 4 months ago] he's pretty consistent with one a week give or take a life event.

Can't find complanation nation napalm or pachurico.

Styrbjorn is in the inactive archive because he's been inactive for 3 months. I'll ask him if he's likely to upload, i'll also make that section bigger.
