First actual reply woooo

Yeah I might be able to stream if my internet connection allows it but I'm pretty confident that it will. Don't quote me on it yet though. I have to go through a proper phase of testing. If I judge the quality good enough, I'll offer my services to you guys.
I guess United States won't have a team this year (MMzz not as captain would be sadface).

At least we have a badass Mapset organizer this time.
I supply myself as Referee, if it is ok. D:
@ Mr Color: If you can't stream, I also could took this. Of course, someone else would have to take my place as Referee.
Good luck everyone.

As every year, here you have the Userbar for the Taiko World Cup which you may use if you want.
As allways, I hope you guys like it. This time with Miku-Don.
3# 9!

Just come here to take a look.

But I also want to make something that I can do for this game,can I supply myself as a Referee?
I'm your daddy MUST be on finals.
So I should get reserve a place here as a info thread if necessary before more people replying :x

Do you guys think commentation on the live boardcasting acceptable?

I had the first actual reply but it got deleted because Mittens' post had to be the first reply. <<;

That's what my first post was about, I wanted to apply for shoutcasting..

Adding Survey for Shoutcast thing.
I guess commentary can work, as long as we stick to English.

EDIT: No commentary during actual gameplay though, just before matches happen to keep everyone up to speed. We don't want to interrupt the music and such.

I like this idea the most, to be honest.

Thats how it works for most live rhythm game tournaments. The ones konami hold in japan are like this as well.
How about text commentaries
I would be glad to provide audio commentary if I get to stream. I speak on vent very often and although I'm not an English native speaker, I do my best for my accent to be as understandable as possible. Also, I have some experience commenting on streams, if you remember back last year with ztrot's weekly stream, I was in fact a regular commentator on there as well.

Text commentary would be okay but typing is much slower than speaking, so it kinda loses its "live" charm
Not joining anymore because PH is just gonna lose by DQ again anyway
I'll bookmarked this thing up ;3 and audio commentary would be great ;3

Rule changed regarding Multi-Country registration. Please refer to registration instructions and Tournament Instructions
