Good shit.

I definitely talk over people. It's not specific to commentary, either. That's just me. Sometimes I notice it, and try to give moments over to them (you may have noticed me turning to my co-commentators at times and saying things like, "so, Peanuts, tell us why he won that round!"), but I should be making a greater effort to let my co-commentary breathe a little.

Also, I think this discussion is really highlighting the importance of having a pair of commentators complement one another. I know that I personally find 2 technical commentators to be cripplingly dry, with tons of dead air and awkward pauses, and I having 2 color commentators starts to just be white noise, often devoid of content. For Combo Breaker, I'm going to try and plan the commentary staffing to have everyone in their right place.

I think your input would be very valuable, and I welcome your advice.

Edit: over in the CB thread, I'll soon be asking people if they want to commentate. Once we have a shortlist, we can start making calls.

Just to throw my hat into the thread:

@mcpeanuts @dekillsage @FuLLBLeeD You guys are really easy people to talk to!
@Merlock It was fun playing with you! It really helped me get back on the wagon
