I was watching today's NLBC and and was immediately immersed into the gameplay. Usually gaming tournaments bore me to tears, but the commentary from Rabies alone made it extremely enjoyable to watch. Not only does he have a great casting voice, but he is very knowledgeable in the mechanics and knows the instant a KO is coming, which is very important when casting to the casuals.
If you watch this clip I posted, you can see in a twitch stream of 2500, he was able to hype up the chat here on the massive incoming grab. Watch the chat after the grab, if it wasn't for rabies alerting the audience of the incoming move, they wouldn't have reacted as hyped as they did.
I would consider him the Joe Rogan of the FGC. He immerses people into DOA. DOA has had a pretty long history of receiving hate from the other FGC communities but in this sp00ky stream, I didn't see any at all. People were really into it.
A player/commentator with a great casting voice is EXTREMELY RARE OK? Even the world of MMA/UFC has a hard time finding commentators that can even come close to Joe Rogan.
