Although it started out well, the livestream ended up as a disaster IMO. Too many cooks in the kitchen perhaps. Anne and Mike Sacco - I normally LOVE you guys, but tonight made me consider no longer listening to your podcasts/read your posts. It was so rude the way you "uninvited" people mid-sentence, while you kept that short actor guy there forever, when he had absolutely nothing to do with Wow. Hell - you even invited his 10 year old kid to join, while Gamebreaker hosts had nowhere to sit and too little participation. You should take notes and learn from Gamebreaker.tv , as they generally know how to put on a professional stream/production.And sacco... seriously.. talking about your hair (!!) and about how you're a celebrity makes you look like a fool, and interupting a highly promoted event to let girls "stroke your hair" is creepy and gross, and a huge turnoff from Wow Insider in general.

Wow...you're a little ray of sunshine, aren't you.

let the down voting begin. It is my honest opinion, and I wouldn't have posted it if I wasn't very disappointed.

I pretty much agree but I give them all a pass because everyone there is probably HAMMERED by now. I mean come on forgive the guy for being a little flirty and ego'd up by alcohol. Also its part of being a showman, a good host quality. That said, better guest time scheduling should have happened. DS9 guy w/ the kid had no real reason to be there especially comparatively. Also better communication about stream fixing after it went down would have been great. Like I said though, alcohol makes mistakes for you :p

Not downvoting anything. I am grouchy after encountering all the jerkwards in that chat room that were howling their outrage to the heavens about jesse cox being interrupted and asked to move and insulting everyone under the sun because of it. Your comment is leaning that way. I'm a fan of the guy too, but WOW...that behavior was pretty gross. anyway! I thought the stream, before it's untimely demise, was a fun time.

I thought it was fun, but I thought it was horrible how they uninvited people.. it was really rude and I wanted to listen to this Crendor fellow. It started great and went downhill until they had the broadcasting issue. What disturbed me most, IMO, was that people wanted to say stuff and as soon as they started talking, they were interrupted by whoever was asking the questions and in the end they almost couldn't talk. That was sad :( I think next year they shouldn't have booze when broadcasting. I'm sure that didn't favour them at all.

Crendor's talking amounted to this."Hey, tell us who you are.""I'm Crendor""You do videos. Tell us, for the people who want to know more about you, what can they look up?" (paraphrashing.)"Well, they can look up how to win at guilds and achievements, or how to win at this, or how to win at that, anything how to win with WoW at the end.""Great. (insert some chat which I forget.)""Can you do the Gogogo guy for us?"Crendor: "Gogogo!""Great!"(Other guest talks to him for about 2 minutes.)Crendor then sits there for about 10 minutes, being ignored, while other people are talking.Then someone (forget if it was Mike or Anne) talks in his ear, and he gets up, and leaves.Oxhorn got it a little better. I started watching again a little after he was on, but after talking to him for a few minutes, the subject changed to someone else, and then he just sat there for awhile, had another couple of minutes of talk, then they asked him to give his seat up.There was also about 10 minutes of absolute impossible to hear interviews because the chat channel started playing techno like it did when they weren't doing anything, and it was playing over the audio, and you couldn't hear anything.

I'd like to note that the vast majority of the people on our VIP list didn't show up until the second half of the party, so we had very few people available to put at the livestream table early on, and then way too many to seat later. We unfortunately don't control when people show up, all we can do is work with what we've got. And Aron Eisenberg is one of the nicest dudes you'll meet, don't be haters.
