    I know a few people here watch this guy. I thought this deserved its own thread.
    He has recently started a theme on his daily shows. This is the 3rd Monday where he gives a challenge to players who then sumbit their replays.

    For example last week it was Carrier Rushing for Protoss

    This weeks is very funny, Terran players may not build ANY marines, marauders or tanks. Approx 35 mins in you see a guy using planetary fortresses to attack,he ends up with 3 of them

    His challenge to be submitted for next Monday is to play 3v3 or 4v4. At the very start each player types the SINGLE offensive unit type they will use that game. So thor, tank, viking, roach, baneling, stalker, colossi DT are are valid choices.

    If you want to for archon obviously you must go HT first, but you must morph to archin as soon as possible. Zerg are allowed to build queens, overlords, overseers.

    Am sure a boards 4v4 with all boardsies would be fun.
    email is: monday@day9.tv


    What I like about some of the replays was that after scouting the opponent figured out at they were doing Funday Monday. The Funday replays were all ladder games too.

    Im only on Bronze and was doing well in a PvP match until I slacked off a bit - he went Carriers with a few Rays and it was GG for me.

    You get used to him after a while but sometimes his incredible nerdiness winds me up too

    just started watching it, and realised its 1hour 50mins long! :eek::eek:

    I dont really watch funday mondays he goes into his 'whacky zany' mood, just for show


    Watch some normal days, much more sombre and pleasant to watch, some of the best analysis of the game you can get on the net, just about everyone else looks up to him

    Agreed, despite some of his quirks I dont think there are many that understand the game as well as he does.

    I've warmed to his ways - he's a bit OTT allright, but he's much more entertaining - with the knowledge to back it up too - than most commentators. Sometimes watching the replays you sense ppl are taking it all wayyyy too seriously - day9's at least makes it all seem a bit more fun.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,137 ✭✭✭✭TheDoc


    I think he could do with cutting it down.

    I just cant find myself holding out to watch the whole thing as much as I'd like to.

    But as regards quality its right up there, his commentry is class also.

    Weaponofchoice by djwheat is another good one, more podcasty to listen to on your travels and worth a goosey.

    The ads before every episode are wrecking my noodle big time.

    In his defence he does the casts live taking questions etc from a chat feed and anything done live always tends to go on abit especially if its mostly unrehersed.

    If you were watching live and interacting i'd say his long winded answers etc would be more interesting and someone really needs to edit down his programmes when they are uploaded. But that takes time.


    I like him enough but he is much more of a stikler then most other casters over little details.


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,137 ✭✭✭✭TheDoc


    But it is those little details that count :P


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,997 ✭✭✭Grimebox


    "Only expanding when were dead broke in the main, sounds like how I make it from rent month-to-month" lol I take back everything I said

    This weeks one is good! I'd like to try some tonight if anyone is up for it


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,381 ✭✭✭Br4tPr1nc3


    id be up for that.

    Just watched the Tuesday daily.

    This weeks Funday Monday challenge (to be viewed on Monday 18th) shall be "play a multiplayer but you must kill your opponents in alphabetical order. You can defend of course however you cannot chase any attackers and if you meet the wrong army in the middle of the map you must retreat."

    Day9 does apologise to anyone called Admiral Aadvaark as they will be first to die!
    He also hopes to see a 3v3 with both sides doing the task.

    The following week (19th-24th, cast on 25th) will be a return to the single unit multiplayer challenge. This will probably be a 2 hour long cast as it takes so long for players using a single unit type to finish the game.


    The task for next weeks Newbie Tuesday is "attempt a drop attack that fails"
    I'm going to try some thor drops.........


  • Registered Users Posts: 23,137 ✭✭✭✭TheDoc


    That sounds epic tbh :D


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,073 ✭✭✭Xios


    8-player FFA tonight? ^.^

    :D


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 5,824 ✭✭✭RoyalMarine


    xios.. i hate your name.....

    how did the ffa go?


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,073 ✭✭✭Xios


    there was no interest in irc, so let's just play it tomorrow night or sunday :)


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,499 ✭✭✭Sabre0001


    I saw Day9 do some commentary for BW and wasn't a massive fan - he seems to have toned things back a bit and I really enjoyed the episode posted above (#3). I think he has become a better commentator with the practice and time! Watching ep. 4 now

    🤪



  • Registered Users Posts: 23,137 ✭✭✭✭TheDoc


    Yeah , I'm loving Friendday Tuesdays, getting to hear double commentary with solid players, learning even more now!

    Its good to hear the thought process behind the decisions we see on the replays. While a commentator can only guess we can hear how Huk (or others) react to opponents moves.

    On my drop attempts, I won 3 of 3. So no submission to Day9!
