Cadred looks at CGS's demise (17 comments)
Posted by A_Spec @ 11:00 CST, 3 December 2008 - iMsg
Over at Cadred.org, United Kingdom Corin Cole has written an article titled "The Fall of CGS", exposing many figures, both financial and of the TV viewing numbers, writing about what really caused the death of the world's biggest league.

According to Corin, the CGS spent 25 million dollars in season one with a 50 million dollar budget for 5 years, as well as an alleged $300,000 per season deal for esports legend United States of America Jonathan "Fatal1ty" Wendel. The article explains that the over-spending of the budget was down to, in part, the original plans being to create the CGS has a North American league only, which also explains the European feelings of being neglected during the two seasons.

You can read the entire article over at Cadred.

Gaming Commentator Revealed : djWheat (95 comments)
Posted by A_Spec @ 19:07 CDT, 20 March 2007 - iMsg
With the renewed interest in game commentating I have decided to do a short series on the part of the gaming world that doesn’t get much coverage; The gaming commentators.

We hit off the series with an in depth interview with iTG3 Radio iTG United States of America Marcus “djWheat” Graham. What makes him the legendary caster that he is? What is his story? Read on and find out.
Netherlands A_Spec
So tell me, who is djWheat? How did you become a game commentator? Was there a particular reason? Or did you just want to try something new?

United States of America djWheat
I think by now most everyone knows the story about how I became a game commentator... I basically lied my way into TsN, and found out that I had some skills. But the real reason I was ABLE to become a game commentator is probably because of my passion for games.

When I first started, I had no idea that it would turn into what it is today (a full time position as a game commentator and show host), so I took it with a grain of salt. It wasn't until I did this for nearly 4 years as a hobby that I was finally able to make something of it... that in itself shows my dedication for gaming and my passion for competitive gaming.
