Blog: What else is new?

February 26th, 2013 18:24
I did a couple of posts on my blog earlier in my timeline as a user here, but they were actually just advertisement for the shows i was running or needing feedback for my casting.

This is a blog where i tell you a little bit about what's going on in my life at the moment and what you can expect (stream and castwise) in the near future.

To start things off i can tell you that streaming and casting is not actually my job, i do it as a "passion project" in my spare time. At the moment i am studying "Information Science" at Aarhus University (a mix major between lots of shit, but with focus on IT) and im on my 2nd semester.

I recently moved in to an apartment with two dudes from my class (i had to ride the bus for an hour every morning to get to uni before) and so far it's pretty awesome.

This brings us to something very important, which is my internet line. When i lived at home, we only had the possibility of 5/1 internet, so i couldn't stream from home, i had to be at Phoinx's place (the ESPTV producer), so that was where we set up our "studio".

The apartment i've moved into is going to get fiberoptic lines very soon, so the from the 4th of March i will be streaming almost every day.

I will be streaming my own gameplay (mostly in CS:GO, but also in other games like SC2, LoL and DayZ) but also casting weekly games in ESEA, 4PL or whatever league is running.

This will be done from my pc here at the apartment, so don't expect 720p 60FPS and sick cameras + lights - what i have atm is a 720p webcam, one of our caster headsets and my current pc (no capture cards).

Also, in the near future - the ESPTV brand will cease to exist as we are joining forces with another eSport brand, but fear not, that only means more streaming and more tournaments for you guys to follow :-)

I think that was all for now, if you read the whole thing then thanks for your time and i will hopefully see you in the streamchat soon!

Questions can be posted in the comment section and i will try to answer them all.

Have a nice day,
Niels "rizc" Topp

nice blog, gonna follow esplanet's stream as usual:P
2013-02-26 23:41
going to team up with esports heaven? or a completely new project?
2013-02-26 23:59
They wrote shit about rizc, and now you think they will be partners lol Esport heaven is doomed, they suck completly, bunch of incompetents. HLTV is the main home of CS and pretty much dominates the scene, just a fact
2013-02-27 01:20
its called business, if he can hook up with a big organisation like heaven media it would be huge for him to get that much exposure. But saying that they will probably stick with FaceItTV after using them for vienna.
2013-02-27 01:37
I really like the job you've been doing, still don't know why there are people criticizing your work. Although I'd rather see you sitting in that desk in front of the cameras @ ESPlanet, it's nice to hear that you're back soon.
2013-02-27 00:10
We'll continue as usual when covering bigger events, and hopefully we'll get an appartment soon so we can set up a proper studio instead ;)
2013-02-27 00:55
Keep up the gooood work mate!!

There are too many sourcers at hltv. I think he was CS:Source broadcaster.
2013-02-27 13:22
What is the fucking problem if there are "too many" sourcers? As if this is a 1.6 site
2013-02-27 18:08
it's not a 1.6 site anymore, it's a go site now :) yes he was a source caster

ESPlanet becoming HLTV.orgs official stream would be cool. Looks like ESPlanet name didnt last long

2013-02-27 22:06
Good luck with your fnatic venture! Good to see you guys getting picked up by a major organization!
2013-02-28 18:36
imo your not best streamer, you often miss action etc etc. but you truly ENJOY what youre doing, and are gettin excited with players actions etc and honestly i luv watching your stream :P. its simply more intressting (even is you miss action its more intressting to watchin nothing with you then pure action with most of speakers).;)
2013-02-28 18:44
rizc, you da man
2013-03-03 13:04
Sorry rizc today i watched you stream NaVi vs. Mousesports and you just arent into the game enough i often have the feeling you dont care about the game at all but only care about alot of other stuff that has nothing to do with the actual match! Now i am gonna give you an example i sit on skype with 4 of my friends i am watching your stream they are watching GO TV (which means they are 90 seconds ahead of me)several times they scream to me oh my god that was sick and when i watch you stream often you dont even see what happens. The one example i wanted to give you was one of the last rounds where troubley shot one of Na'Vi guys in the very last seconds but Na'Vi won the round when my friends watched it they went crazy and screaming and stuff like that so i watch it on your stream and when it happens you dont even notice that NaVi wins the round before 30 seconds after!!! and this is just one example this happens all the time you really need to focus more on the game you are casting
2013-03-05 20:55
I have to agree with this 100%. This guys seems to be more concerned about getting his name known than actually improving and doing a good job. Also why the F are we watching this guy eat his pizza??!??! I have never experienced anything this unprofessional before. This guy is clueless man. He is bad at casting and futhermore very unlikeable due to his "lust" for stardom.. Makes me sick. Go away.
2013-03-05 21:08
That's maybe a bit rough but yeah he deserves to know where he should improve
2013-03-05 21:10
Could not agree more. This guy Rizc, just want to get his name written the right places and don't care about the matches and the frags... which is the important part of being a caster!! Peace.
