Casting SCII Replays for the Community

If you are a low-league player (from platinum league to bronze/unranked in ladder) and you want you and your games to be featured in an upcoming weekly series casted by myself, leave a comment or drop me a PM. If you are going to post your replays for casting, send them in PMs. It is preferred (but not required) that these games are played after the Heart of the Swarm patch. DO NOT POST REPLAYS PUBLICLY.

The next Wood League Weekly casts are slated to take place by Sunday, June 16th.

Within this thread, you will find a catalog of casted replays, ranging from high-grandmasters face-offs to bronze league roflcakes. I am actively casting more replays. Make yourself at home: watch some videos, share it with friends, and leave me some comments. If you feel up to it, you can even post replays for me to cast. If you wish for your games to be covered in our weekly event, PM them to me.

I am not limiting the content of the casts to 1v1s or mid-to-high-level play. I will cast any skill level and any player count and team allocation. This means that I will do everything from the standard 1v1 matches to hour-long eight-player FFAs. I have no time cap on my YouTube channel, so video length isn't an issue. Keep this in mind when requesting a replay. I would also appreciate it if you actually include a download link to the replay in question, as that tends to help the process move along a bit more swiftly. Yes, some people forget that.

If you feel so inclined, I'd appreciate it if you leave some information about the players in the game. Did you guys meet in ladder for the first time when this game was played? What league was it played in? Did your phone explode with 69 texts and 42 calls while you were playing and cause a wrist fracture as you whipped your mouse across the room and into your colon, resulting in your unstoppable army of Colossi and Stalkers to be reduced to smoking ashes thanks to a freak nuclear strike? I won't know if you don't tell me - so tell me!

I'll add casts to the thread as I post them to YouTube. If you have any feedback pertaining to the casting itself, do let me know. All casts are available in 720-24p HD. Many casts are in a 16;9 resolution, though in some cases my resolution is different thanks to different patches. Naturally, expect a good amount of quality to be dropped thanks to YouTube's terrible compressor.

Thank you for your time and for your interest. I will hear out well-formed complaints and criticism, so if you have a problem, feel free to articulate it to me via a post, a comment, or a PM. If you're interested in playing melee games or have something to tell me in real time, you can add me on AIM (Pr0nogo), MSN Messenger (, or SCII (Pronogo.234 - I am only active in the North American region). Of course, I would appreciate it if you take the time to rate, comment on, and share the videos that you found interesting.
About me, the caster
All co-casts are recorded with Tsar (, at the behest of the audience and the fickle chance of convenience.
Special Casts
Main Casts
Release notes can be found under each individual video. They are likely more detailed than the video description, which also may contain relevant notes. Each cast is sorted by type and in descending chronological order from newest to oldest.
1v1 Casts
Internatron (2v2) Casts
Penis Poker (3v3) Casts
BrowderCock (4v4) Casts
Cumglomerate (FFA) Casts
Upcoming/Requested Casts
This is purely here for records, and to reduce the chance that people request the same replay multiple times. I may have already recorded the videos for these. Most videos are recorded early in the week and uploaded on weekends - usually Fridays and Saturdays, but not always.

I watched the first one and it was funny as hell, all the unit names and the tone of it, I'll watch more and hope the feeling stays.
My favorite parts are probably your reactions to that dumbass changeling sound that blizz set to play globally.

A new cast has been made available. This is a cast of a live game, and was recorded as-is, much like all other casts. That means that there are no more edits. The microphone audio stream has been rebalanced and there is much less static this time around. Enjoy!

Jan 26 2013, 8:05 am Pr0nogo Post #5

Eight new casts have been added. Yes, eight. Go watch that shit.

Feb 3 2013, 5:56 am Pr0nogo Post #6

Two more are up. Things were a bit slower this week because I had no requests, no time, and my friend's only free hour was during a birthday party. Sorry, no hour-long co-cast.

Feb 9 2013, 1:53 am Pr0nogo Post #7

I've uploaded a lot more than I thought I would. The entire process took no small amount of time. Check the OP for more videos. Erik, all of your casts are done. I didn't successfully cast the replay of you winning against the Zerg player who built four Hatcheries at the beginning because the mic audio was corrupted.

For those who are interested, I've recorded my experience placing into Heart of the Swarm. I play terribly, as predicted. You can view that by clicking here for the first part and here for the second.

If you're still looking for more, you can check out my first look at the Heart of the Swarm's editor here. It's terrible.

Added four new videos to the playlist and the OP. They're all videos of Kami from TL being silly because nobody else requested anything. Sooner or later I'm going to clear out of his list and if I don't have any requests I'm not going to continue. My time is better spent elsewhere.

Apr 12 2013, 2:31 pm Pr0nogo Post #9

If anyone is interested in this, I'll update the thread with the replays I've casted thus far.

Magic box god; Suck it Corbo

I'm interested. One suggestion I have for you is do a little research on the players before you cast the game. It's always nice to know the skill level and/or play style of the players we're watching.

We can't explain the universe, just describe it; and we don't know whether our theories are true, we just know they're not wrong. >Harald Lesch

I feel like you should polish your casting skills a bit. Here's the annoyances I've noticed:

- It's distracting when you draw boxes and zip over the screen with the mouse all the time.
- It's hard to follow when you scroll / move screen in short intervals.
- It's better * to comment on the supposed strategy/build/decision making and evaluate viable options for each player in the current state of the game. * Better than just describing what's happening on-screeen.
- Find something useful you can talk about in the early game.

Apr 15 2013, 8:18 pm Pr0nogo Post #12

Other than the ADHD of zipping around, I've worked on most/all of those things already.

OP updated. It now reflects the TL thread here. Six new casts have been added.

Apr 16 2013, 2:00 am Pr0nogo Post #13

The OP has been updated with a new, sleeker look and a very important announcement!

A new cast of an old game has been added. Prepare for brain damage.

Apr 19 2013, 4:46 pm Pr0nogo Post #15

A lulzy cannon rush has been made available in the 1v1 section.

Apr 20 2013, 5:16 pm Pr0nogo Post #16

Another Kami game - this one against a Zerg player on Antiga Shipyard - has been made available in the 1v1 section.

Apr 21 2013, 6:02 pm Pr0nogo Post #17

A new cast has been added to the 1v1 section. It contains some silly antics by low-league players. Enjoy!

Apr 22 2013, 9:03 pm Pr0nogo Post #18

Wood League Weekly is live! Week 1 holds three games for your enjoyment. Note that there is no Wood League Winner's match - the rivalry between Sirius and Mareq will be decided in next Monday's Wood League Weekly. Check the OP for the new section!

Hope you guys enjoy; leave your games for us to cast if you have them!


Apr 27 2013, 6:26 am Pr0nogo Post #19

Five new casts have been added to the 1v1 section!

Here's a rundown of what you can expect:
Upload #1 - We wrap up some unfinished low-league nonsense with Mareq's third showcased game - this time, against Terran player Yannage. PvT on Akilon Flats. It's the only game in this batch that isn't using Heart of the Swarm.
Upload #2 - Say hello to MissPringles from TeamLiquid, a.k.a. Geney - a Grandmasters league Terran. She dukes it out against fellow GM Terran raZieL. TvT on Akilon Wastes.
Upload #3 - An exciting PvP on Bel'Shire Vestige awaits you as WhiteRa, the Ukranian GM player, goes Pylon to Pylon against PrimeLoT - a Masters league Protoss player.
Upload #4 - We meet up with Grandmasters players Breach and Awake and watch as they make use of Swarm Hosts, Vipers, Hellbats, Widow Mines, and various other silly antics. Just your average TvZ on Newkirk Precinct, I suppose.
Upload #5 - For those of you who have watched my casts since the early days, you may recognise the name xOKoreanAir. Now in high-Masters, he attempts to execute a beatdown against Masters Protoss player RockEr. A PvZ (KoreanAir being the Z) on Newkirk Precinct.

Be on the lookout for Wood League Weekly - coming this Tuesday! As always, let me know if there's a specific game you want casted, and I'll make sure it's done. Enjoy!

Wood League Weekly - week 2 is now live! Check the second spoiler tag under the appropriate section in the OP.

Another Masters-league game from xOKoreanAir is now available in the 1v1 section, as well, in case you were looking for something that wasn't disgusting.

Oh_Man shouted: i wonder how they did grand moff tarkins voice in star wars
Got someone to do a decent impersonation and then used professional audio engineers to make it sound like the original actor
[2024-3-01. : 8:11 pm]
IlyaSnopchenko -- Sure doesn't sound perfect... nothing is. I know it's better than my own attempts at voiceacting (but I'll have to resort to that, too; I've just been putting that off for ages).

Oh_Man -- i wonder how they did grand moff tarkins voice in star wars
[2024-3-01. : 2:58 pm]
Oh_Man -- oh right, yeh if ur trying to do additional dialogue for dead or unavailable actors then its ur only option. it still doesnt sound perfect though
[2024-2-29. : 8:30 pm]
IlyaSnopchenko -- I'm 99% satisfied with the results Jun3hong was able to extract from Elevenlabs for our project... but of course YMMV
[2024-2-29. : 8:29 pm]
IlyaSnopchenko -- It is a good solution for original characters, I guess, but if you want to visit a canon character, there's bound to be issues.
[2024-2-29. : 11:05 am]
Oh_Man -- the alternative is go on voices dot com or some pay to play sites and hire some cheap talent
[2024-2-29. : 9:18 am]
Sila12 -- Nothing
[2024-2-29. : 5:20 am]
IlyaSnopchenko -- Mind you, it was almost impossible to get decent expressions for Zeratul, mostly because he is very much emotionless most of the time in his real voice lines. Which is understandable for story reasons, of course, but not beneficial for our purposes. :-)
[2024-2-29. : 5:18 am]
IlyaSnopchenko -- I feel it's good enough, and the alternative is having nothing at all. And sometimes, in our case, Jun3hong got surprisingly good performance out of the AI. You can ask him how many attempts it took him.
