RGL Community, I Need YOUR Main-Callers (for HL)
–>If you don’t want to read a lot, skip to “How Can I Help?”<–
Who are you and what do you want?
My name is Despy (literally who?), and I would like to tell you about a project whose purpose is to provide educational content for you all about one of the least understood and yet important skills: What Does it Take to be a Successful Main Caller?.
Why Should I Care?
Main-calling is untalked about as a part of skill improvement. Demo reviews will rarely focus on main-calling but rather the result of those calls. We all can identify what is and isn’t good main-calling but very few can actually execute it or explain it. Some even go as far as to say “you can’t teach main-calling”. I look to challenge this claim! This project is meant to provide more public information about the matter from reputable sources that have experience and results to back up their claims.
How Do You Intend to Do This?
I plan to conduct a live interview with players that will either be recorded through video streaming software or transcribed and put on the forums later in the form of a Q/A text interview.
I wish to accomplish this feat through a series of steps as follows:
Phases of This Project
Gather a pool of known and talented main callers who would be willing to share their insight <— We are here
Create a list of good questions for new and upcoming main callers to learn from (if this gains traction I will make a separate post later to ask for questions from the community)
Perform the interview and record (through video or transcription)
Make another post on the RGL forums with the results
How Can I Help? <-- If You Read Nothing Else Please Read This
Of course, none of this is possible without YOUR support (thank you btw). If you would like to contribute to the project, please DM me on Discord listed below either nominating yourself or someone else who would be a good fit for this kind of project. If you are nominating someone else, please try to provide contact information of the person if possible and only nominate people who would reasonably be willing to follow through. I am currently only looking for main callers who have recent experience from the TOP 2 DIVISIONS OF RGL HL. Apologies if you do not meet the criteria at this time.
