So what are people’s opinions with mentioning frame data and stuff during commentary? I know from the competitive standpoint dropping knowledge on when you can challenge strings and punish attacks is useful information. However, from the spectator’s point of view it’s completely counter intuitive to trying to get new players or casual players engaged with the commentary.
During Winter Brawl X top 16, whenever Arturo/Sp00ky were on the mic they were referencing frame data constantly. I’ve seen some mixed reactions to this type of commentary and I find the debate interesting. I can see both sides of the argument and have no personal bias to one or the other. If I had to lean towards one side I think it might generally be better to leave out frame data from commentary to be more engaging for the viewers. There’s also different ways to phrase things to get the same point across without getting technical.
