I have recently taken upon myself the duty to stream as much as my time allows, be it either casting official matches of various leagues and tournaments, playing with my viewers in inhouse-games, scrimming with my team or matchmaking with friends.
For those of you who doesn't know me, I am Maelk, I am currently playing for the American organization, Evil Geniuses (EG). I have one of the longest trackrecords within the world of DotA and used to be the captain of the renowned Meet Your Makers-squad (MYM), one of the most recognizable and famous teams in the world.
The reasoning behind me going intro streaming to begin with, is because I've always enjoyed working the community-side of things and previously streamed a lot of games in the hay days of DotA for ESNation. I have been co-commentating a decent amount of games alongside TobiWan on JoinDotA.com and found it to be a lot of fun. I felt like my style of casting and interacting with my viewers might be appreciated as one of the better alternatives in the world of streaming and finally went LIVE earlier this week.
If you appreciate a cheerful, charismatic and colorful commentary that tries to focus on a bit of everything and isn't too serious, with a bit of trolling and friendly banter, then this probably won't bore you. Are you also a fan of learning things, appreciate strategical input as well as opinionated views on the game and what moves in the community, then you're going to absolute love it!
Be adviced though: Mr. Self-importance is left outside in the cold and is instead replaced by a crude amount of sarcasm and joking...
The general viewership is also friendly, openminded and prone to smiling, so if you're bringing a positive attitude, I'll be glad to have you. We'll be happy to have you.
