I have been casting StarCraft 2 for a while now but since I started casting for GomTV the feedback I get in regards to my casts increased exponentially. I usually read through all the feedback and also commentate on certain aspects of the feedback that I receive. Unfortunately the problem with the thread that has been used for feedback in the past was not created by me. Therefore I can not edit the opening posts which limits my options in regards to answering questions or suggestions.
In the future I would like to use this thread to respond to peoples suggestion, feedback and opinion about my casts. I will try to edit the OP every now and then so that topics that have been adressed frequently will be visible on the first page.

At the same time I would like to take the opportunity to once again thank the TL community for the support that I have received in the past I doubt that I would have gone to Korea without the feedback that I got from this community. Thank you very much!
Kind regards, Khaldor
@Mods: I know that there is already a thread about feedback regarding my casts. For the reasons stated above I would ask you though to not close this thread. It is really hard to respond to feedback properly without having the OP to edit :/

I really love your casting in general, and your work on GSL is no exception, there are always things you can improve on, but you seem pretty much on point.

Khaldor I am very critical of most casters, but you sir rank among the very best. I wouldn't put you up there with Day or Tastosis yet but you are much much better than all the other casters I've watched.
I really appreciate how you seem to know crazy random stuff. A perfect example is this morning (in the US) your co-caster said he'd never seen feedback on BC's in a pro game and you shot back "it happened in this game" (I don't rem which game you said it was).
I get turned off really quick by casters who start running off at the mouth about why a player is doing something or where they are going with their build when they don't know what they are talking about. Your in game analysis always seems spot on though and I like that, a lot.
Another big thing for me is your energy and enthusiasm when you cast. You have that magical ability to inject excitement into the game without sounding like you are forcing it. A lot of casters sound very monotone, or sound like they are trying to sound more excited than they really are. It seems to come naturally for you, much like Day.
I really really enjoy your casts. Keep up the great work <3

Hey thanks for giving us the chance to give you some feedback! In general i think your casting is great, you're energetic and don't bore me to death, you also get along with other casters pretty well. If i had to make one criticism, i'd say you argue a little too much with co-casters, which isn't a huge deal but maybe if you keep it in mind it'll disappear on its own ^_^
I really like your casting, because one can clearly tell your passion for this game by watching your stream. If you want constructive criticism, I guess a minor flaw would be your accent, but that's a thing I don't mind at all, and I'm sure most people feel the same way.
edit: Keep up the great work! I just recently told my buddy that it's unusual to find a time of day when Khaldor is NOT casting ;-)

Khaldor, you're AWESOME, and you're an absolute machine with your commentating! I love always being able to tune into one of your casts!
The oooonlyy little thing that's started to bug me a bit is that you repeat yourself a bit too much. Like you'll say something like "...his drowns are all dying, HIS DROWNS ARE ALL DYING", always repeating a sentence in a more critical way. A few times is fine but I think you do it a bit too much xD Not sure if it's a language thing, but yeah...anyways, you still rock :-)

Other than that, no complaints!
You are perfectly right about that. Ive been noticing it myself after people pointed it out to me. Its just very hard for me to get rid of that because I already got used to using it in a wrong way. It's not that I don't KNOW, but more like that it's an automatism I have to get rid of. I will add that to the OP soon and I promise that I will improve on that point. Just give me some time to get rid of the habit!

I would emphasize something that i've heard somewhere else that is very important in my opinion, espacially if you cast in the gsl. Don't (!!!) try to imitate tastosis. Don't try to copy their style/jokes/phrases etc. i feel almost every other gsl caster is heavily influenced by them. Therefore they are "just" a copy from the original. You need to have and develope an own style of casting with _your_ humor and _your_ jokes and phrases not some washed out copy. I don't mean that you are a 1-1 copy at all just wanted to remind you of that "issue" that many casters have in my opinion. Another part is that i think you need to improve your knowledge of the game at some points. I love to hear apollo casting because he is very very informed about the players, their styles and has the balls to disagree in a cast with his cocaster if he thinks the situation in the game is different as his co believes.

hes a good caster but its hard to watch someone who isnt a native english speaker speak english. if i have to choose between perfect english and not i choose perfect english. with this line of logic him as a caster makes no sense. this is MY view and im allowed to have this on a poll thread mods....
I really miss when you say a lot of swear words in the cast, like you did when i saw you with mr bitter but i guess GOM wouldnt be too happy with that, so just keep doing what you are doing! I think your knowledge is some of the best out there

Sorry i do not like your casting at all, i dont want to bash you into the ground but i'll state some of my feelings. Sometimes i feel you are just shouting random stuff which completly no sense at all, i feel you are dominant over the other caster and you lack some analytical skill. It's getting a lot better but I'd rather listen to tastosis or other casters when watching code A :/

i'm watching your casts and i love it, but there i one thing your tend to do... it's repeat yourself.. for example: and he is trying to get ....(seemingly missing words, not sure why) and he is trying to get into a better position. oder: and here come the bane... the banelings the banelings ( i like the baneling part personally)
but it's not a huge deal, keep on , great caster !
to comm: guys come on support this man he moved to korea just to cast
