    I would suggest though that casters use pauses as an opportunity not a time to complain about pauses (listening to complaining is boring). Here are some suggestions for what to do:

    1. Review parts of the game you missed previously.
    2. Talk about the state of the game
    3, What the teams are doing versus what they should be doing
    4. How the game got to where it is and review turning points
    5. Views of the casters on the particulars of the game, things the teams have done well, things they didn't
    6. Reminder of what else is happening during the cast

    You can help set yourself up for success by having all casters make predictions prior to the game, reviewing the map pre-spawn and talking about how the game will play out, taking the temperature of the audience on the likely result, etc. This will give you more things to talk about should the game slow down, or technical difficulties arise.

    Casts are effectively entertainment, and while a pause might be boring, it shouldn't be if casters take the opportunity to talk about things they might not get a chance to while the game is in full flow.

    OP has been updated with a complete schedule now that registrations for the league have closed. The schedule will be subject to change if unforeseen circumstances arise.

    Due to the changes of circumstance, I think we should consider the Unholy Alliance of Promethean and Team Burning, we can call ourselves Pro-Burn!

    Thanks to pwn4two for his entertaining casts across the two games, though I would urge him to work on his casting focus. Far too long in game two was spent talking about planets where nothing was happening, while I squinted in frustration at the PiP where game deciding clashes were happening. It's cool to review the other planets, but that should be done during downtime, and if you're going to have a PiP you need to ensure you keep an eye on it at all times so you can interrupt whatever you're doing to return to it. At one point you tried to change planets while a battle was commencing, and that should never happen no matter how forgone you think the conclusion is.

    Also you need to pay more attention to player pings and the general notification bar. Player pings are a good indication of where key things are happening. You also missed Halley notifications and Commanders under attack.

    Of course, casting a game on this scale can be overwhelming, so think of this just more as notes from an enthusiastic viewer :)

    heh very true, haven't played much in the way of games lately...

    Hey- if you don't mind me noobing up your team I'm up for it! Just be warned, I've got *very* rusty in my down time :p I would like to get in on some of these one weekend though (just finding a weekend where I'm free might be tricky).

    I'll try and get on a few evenings this week for a few games
