If you've been following eSports for five or more years you remember the bad old days of eSport commentators. Back then commentators picked sides and the general feeling of the broadcast was amateur at best. Commentators would just yell at the teams “you suck!” Can you imagine that in any other sport? Luckily 2013 saw the fruition of years of change aligning eSport commentating with the likes of other pro sports.
While eSports is still still looking for its John Madden or Marv Albert the level of ESPN quality commentating actually adds to the experience, a big change from eSports frothy, bitchy past. Networks like Major League Gaming (MLG) put a shine and polish on eSports that hope to easily cross the boundaries into the mainstream.
