The only thing that really touched me about their handling of Ghosts of Ascalon was the Secluded Glen in the Fields of Ruin.

Dominion of Winds:
- The "Dominion of Winds" encountered in-game is actually just the outer western border of the actual city, which is currently inaccessible.
- Players can see parts of the Wall at an area of the same name in Caledon Forest and Dominion Killing Zone in Kessex Hills; the Shuttered Gate in Lion's Arch is said to also lead to the Dominion of Winds.
- Geographically speaking, Aetherblade Retreat is underneath the Dominion of Winds.
Maybe there is finally some really huge content coming, but who knows.

I'm so glad Blu isn't casting the ESL tourney. Grouch understands the game and helseth is one of the best players around so they get some good calls out.
Where does Anet respond to tickets or whatever it's called, via email or somewhere in your account?
Also, how long is the average wait time for a response?
To be fair, shoutcasting is a lot like announcers in sports...99% of the time they're not really telling you anything you don't already know, it's just part of the tempo of the event.For me it's just that nearly all his calls are wrong and he doesn't provide any additional information. "Zomg the mesmer died" is something I can see myself without any issue. "zomg the blue mesmer died, red'll now have to defend far point since he'll rez there" is something I know but is nice to have pointed out.
"what do you think red should do to come back" "I think they should focus on the off-points, it's clear they can't win the group fight so splitting is the only option"
Yah, that's true, but still...I don't tend to expect much from announcers in terms of, "Help me understand what's going on." because they're really just a part of the entertainment package.
Like the guy that screams, "GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAL!" in Soccer (Sorry, futbol). He's certainly not intending to inform me that a goal has been scored. =D
Again I agree, but you have to understand the background of that. First of "casters" were for radio, so they had to make it exciting to bring the tension across. Second, TV can't keep up with the plays. It happens quite often that the ball is on the other side and the director is still figuring out what camera to switch to.
The depth of soccer is also quite minimal and the only real "tactics" are falling for penalties and putting your entire team on defense after you've scored...
There is a skill to play by play and color commentator. I don't watch esports, do they have an announcing setup like on television? A big difference also is that for pro sports the announcers are professionals, that's how they make their living and some of them make a lot of money doing it. I imagine in esports they don't get paid or if they do, it's very little. The point is that there is a big quality difference and it shows. A good announcing team can make a dull game seem a lot more interesting, at least in sports it can (unless its golf, not sure how to make that one exciting).

pressure, cover, balance
possession, penetration, combination play, off the ball runs, diamond midfield, wingbacks, flat 4 or stopper/sweeper, short corners, direct play, overloading a side or switch the play or both, do you pressure full field or retreat in your own half, how many options are ideal with the person on the ball, do you play into space or to foot, do you have your outside backs overlap your wings to create space, do you play an early ball to the back post for that runner?, do you play through the middle or use the flanks, if you suspect a long back from the back do you pressure or drop back
just a few tactical decisions and formations in soccer, I can name more if you wish
