this thread is surely not intended to flame sheever but to list a few points where she (and a lot of other casters) might be able to improve their casts:

- dont repeat yourself over and over again

you always say "little bit" or "trouble" or "little bit/a lot of trouble" almost every fight. in the DD vs M5 vod (DP getting caught out by BM/POTM scene) you said it almost three times in one sentence. same goes for "taking a lot of damage" "in the meantime" and some more. vary a bit here

- dont make up words/spells/items

it is really confusing when you mispronounce words (power threads for example). I know it can happen in fights when one kill follows the other but as a listener it really disturbs me from following the action

- comment, not tell

when you are casting alone you often tend to just tell what is happening (invoker buys boots, goes bottom, kills xyz). I as a viewer see that, you dont have to mention everything. rather comment on why he bought boots (going for phaseboots/treads? why is this useful?). it is totally uninteresting if you said beastmaster is skilling his passive and not explained why this would be good/bad and changes the game in which way. same goes for:

- the gold/xp graph

some casters seem to have an almost sincere bond with the graphs and try to show every teamfight in bars. when team xyz has a kill and tower lead it is only normal that they are also leading the graphs. it would be only worth mentioning if it's NOT that way (because team abc was able to farm meantime for example)


other than that I am looking forward to see your upcoming vods.

She's really low on the caster priority list atm. People would rather watch v1lat's stream even though no one understands what he's saying. If she does get better, I might just be able to watch her streams. It's a nice change seeing girls actually knowing what dota is

inb4 more dickless white knights telling her she's beautiful and chit
