IPW & Team Spooky to stream Evo 2011

The new Evolution 2011 preview video showing in CEO 2011 revealed that IPLAYWINNER & Team Spooky is chosen to stream the event.


This's a big surprise, even many people asked for it. Because Level Up Series did a good job in their West Coast events. They did fine in last year's Evo, too, if you don't count the stream outage incident which was unfortunate. No one wants their stream to go down on purpose, and everyone will have this problem someday.

The most important element last year was there're 2 channels to choose: Stickam and Ustream. People who have difficulty viewing Stickam can choose Ustream instead, and vice versa.

What I'm worring about is now both sides abandoned Usteam and stream all their events on Justin.tv which is inferior. If IPW & Spooky decide to stream only on Justin.tv then it'll be an instant failure. (Not to mention that there should be a stream for slow broadband users so they don't need a re-stream.)

Team Spooky is known to have a member who has some personal issue with Daigo Umehara, but this shouldn't be a problem now since it's a world-class event. I'm sure they won't let that kind of people on the mic. My choice is Seth Killian, UltraDavid, James Chen, Juice Box. Maybe we'll talk about commentators later.
