  • I think we need to appreciate that for a moment starting at 3:36 the Pogchamps stream was on a break, so it showed Hikaru's stream. He was watching Ludwig's stream, but was also on a break, so we saw Hikaru's empty chair and Ludwig's stream. Then Ludwig went on a break, so we saw his empty chair as well. 3 levels of streams on break watching another stream, 2 empty chairs and 1 oddly amused viewer.

  • It was way less exiting to watch when the commentators kept tuning into the players channels constantly. Usually they show different tactics and possible lines and then there is the will they find it excitement. Also it is better to hear what they are saying by just unmuting them instead of going to their actual stream. Other than that, good commentators.

  • I find it kinda cringe how the chat was cow shitting on Tubbo. Idk imo Tubbo seem to be a nice streamer and the way chat was hating on him seem to be very unnecessary. Plus that time when they were even shitting on the hosts because they were amazed that Tubbo found the best move, everybody was like "its not that hard to find", "the hosts are exaggerating", "bad hosts". Bitch shut the fuck up, if you watch pogchamps and expect the players find every best move possible then you're the one who's been doing things wrong not the hosts.

  • As I stated after Day 1, showing the players' boards adds NOTHING to PogChamps, and only removes the larger board and Evaluation Bar from our view! All you are doing when you switch to the players' boards is showing us an inferior (often side-swapped pieces) board, with the SAME video feed and same size video box feed of the individual player, and adding their AUDIO. Why not just add the individual players' AUDIO feed on the regular board display, as you determine and as appropriate, and quit switching to their much-inferior board displays?! Otherwise, great job. Good to see Alex and Nemo together! - j q t -

  • For Armageddon, in regards to what Ludwig said about black being fucked from the start. If you play a setup based opening like the Pirc defense you can make very fast moves in the opening, good way to get some of the time differential shortened

  • Armageddon in this rating range just kills what could actually be an entertaining tiebreaker. None of these players will ever play well in that scenario and white is like +70 to win every time.. please rethink that

    • @Stormagedon yeah usually when the match starts, chess asks the streamer to put their chat into “Emote only” which only allows the chatters to use emotes. Now there are VIP’s in chat who can still talk but it doesn’t really matter in the end.

      Ethan NogosekEthan Nogosek7 päivää sitten

  • Is there such a thing as a simultaneous tournament? As in everyone is playing everyone else simultaneously, not just one person doing a simul. Maybe group stages with 5 per group so everyone plays 8 simul games, maybe 10+15. I'd watch a pogchamps of relatively strong players like the cream of pogchamps and NL
