Izzail’s Blog

Hello there Mockit lovers and Rocketleague enthusiasts,

My name is Izzail and I am the Play by Play shoutcaster for Mockitleage. We look to be starting blog posts so I thought I would make the first one about myself so that you might get to know me better. My real name is Chris and I am Canadian if you didn’t already know. I am an old guy who is 30 but feel young at heart and love the esports scene. I got into rocket league at the launch but am new to the esports casting scene. Mockit was amazing enough to give me the opportunity to try my hand at it and I fell in love with it instantly. I have had alot of great responses from the viewers and players and I would sincerely like to say thank you to everyone. I was paired up with some guy named Kerrytaz on my first tournament broadcast and the chemistry we formed right away was something special and has lead to us in the opinion of many becoming the leading pair in Rocketleague commentary. We continue to run 3 tournaments a week and continue to see the participants and viewers growing with each cast. The future is looking bright for Rocketleague and Mockit.gg and i am super happy to be a part of it. I will continue to write blog posts for all of you let me know what you want to hear about in the comments below.

Challonge DDOS and Recovery

He Mockit Headz,

As some of you may know, challonge was allegedly ddos’d and their CDN Incapsula could not stand the DDOS. This caused the Mockit Bracket for the 3v3 tournament on Saturday March 19th to adapt. We at Mockit are quick on our feet, and the awesome team sprang into action. We threw up the whiteboard and started to do it manually.

We put snapshots in our discord server and honestly, our AMAZING community was super supportive. The Mockit Team behind the scenes was doing manual brackets and it went incredibly well.

Challonge recovered about 25 minutes later and the bracket was quickly updated.  Thanks to everyone who was patient with us and a huge shout out to the Mockit Team for being so amazingly on point to aid in manual pencil whipping during the outtage.

Thanks for being awesome folks.

Our Goal At Mockit || Tell us what you think!

Hey folks,

Luckey here. Figured I would fill everyone in on our goal at Mockit.

In general, we love the community we have built. Many folks love what we do, and it is because of YOU that we do this. Everyone at Mockit all has the same mentality of, “Give the people what they want!” Basically, we feel people want a few things. In order of importance:

  1. A great community to play with. This is why we have our discord server. It seems many people love it. We are one of the top 20 discord servers in the world for overall people, and during tournaments we are generally #1 in the world for activity. This is amazing. Check out this chart from one of the guys who helps make Mockit happen, Matt.

  2. They want to also see pros play on a regular basis. We do this by offering amazing prize pools and competitive game play with a stage for all to watch, i.e. our Twitch Stream. 
  3. Dank Memes. Kappa

We will have a few more posts coming out to show what we can do regarding the summer. Exciting times here at Mockit!
