    IEM Cologne 2015

    Pretty boring so far.

    Not a really good lineup at all.

    C9 vs H2k was a good series, none of the other games have really been anything special.

    I general I despise IEM, their scheduling for events is horrific.

    imo this event tells us nothing, so messy, such a bad patch and it's obvious these teams haven't prepared for eachother at all

    I actually think that she is really good when covering LPL. She is knowledgeable to the extreme, and I am fine with her presentation. I have heard people complain that she speaks too fast, but having 25 years of policy debate experience makes everyone seem slow to me. I actually prefer people speaking faster than normal. It was pretty hard to distinguish between the legit criticism and the "little white boy anti-feminist I can say whatever I want on the Internet" brigade.

    Her own self-criticism lined up pretty well with the legit criticism on reddit. Can you go further into the problems you had for her that didn't have to do with delivery?

    The QG fnatic series in particular was jarring.
    She was raging at QG for not doing enough when they picked rekkles off, meanwhile they group up push inhib turret+inhib+inhib and she was still ranting about them not gaining enough.. like wat.

    I really didn't listen to a lot of it ( not because of casters - just the tournament was dull ), but the few minutes I did listen to I really disliked.

    Saying that as someone who thought she should get a shot way back when they were doing fan casts for LPL before they started the official english stream.
    In general I like her a lot when she sticks to champ/game analysis, when she focuses on teams urgh.

    idk how to say this without sounding like a dick..

    whenever you have to do something related to show business you have to have a likable personality, for example i could never do anything where i'd have any sort of public face because i'm not likable.

    Froskurinn just has never seemed likable to me is the simplest explanation i can come up with.

    more often then most people, probably.

    i'd say i watch about 30% of LPL games, 20% LCK, all NA and EU.
