Wow can't believe this'll be my 7th live broadcast !
Also this might not be the right place for this, but is there a limit to the max number of people on the stream? I recall a past tournament where we only allowed 50 people into the stream or something...
I think I joined this place soon after the live airing of 24, so I just missed that tournament.
I missed the beginning of 25 because I had other obligations that day. I remember coming right into the chatroom as Yuuji was about to clear the 1st Stage, actually. A lot of guys in the chat were saying there was no way he was going to clear the Circle Slider IIRC.
I watched all of 26, making it my first, full, live broadcast. I was pretty disappointed after it ended because everyone knew the tournament was over by end of the 1st Stage. (Most already knew the Americans' results and the only good competitors left were Lee, Okuyama, and Hashimoto, all of which nobody expected to complete the Ultimate Cliffhanger)
27 aired on a Thursday during the school year for me IIRC so I actually had to watch the beginning of the tournament on the one hour train ride to school. (I was so thankful the livestream worked on 3G on my iphone 4....) I was also able to watch the beginning of the 2nd Stage while I walked to my school from the train station. I had to watch the rest of the recording after the 6 hours of hell that was my school day that day. Unfortunately, the Americans' runs were already known to me and everybody already knew that Nagano, Yuuji, Ryo, Okuyama, and Ishikawa were already going to be in the 3rd Stage from previous spoilers.
I'm from New York, but during 28's broadcast I was in Ireland on Winter Vacation. I watched the entire tournament the day after I built my very own Warped Wall in the backyard of the house my family owns in the country. (You can see this in the 'Training' section of the forums. Infact, I'll be going back there later this summer and will post videos of me attempting it. I actually sprained my ankle on my 4th attempt when I originally tried it out and couldn't try it again... it was agony not being able to post any videos of me trying it the entire week I was there...)
29 will be my 5th live tournament save a few hours missed here and there of previous live broadcasts... It'll be my first uninterrupted tournament in the comfort of my own home since 26.

I'm loving the stories of how people saw it (or just missed seeing it) as time progressed. I know from my first time watching (Sasuke 20) through KeyHole, a program I got literally an hour before the tournament started and we all scrambled to watch it on what amounted to a glorified powerpoint presentation. Even so.. the sound was clear and we'd freak out when we hear obvious fails and splashes of water hoping the picture moved far enough to see what happened.. LOL Then Sasuke 21 came out with a completely different experience as new programs were found. More and more the community grew and we shared technical glitches and absolute awesomes along the way. Now seeing that thousands of us get online at crazy times, sometimes during other events, or even reschedule events to be watching on time and whatnot it's just awesome. I look forward to this time of year when the tournament is up. Puts me in a happy mood to hear of everyone's watching experience. Especially those who are watching for the first time.. or the 10th

watching it live is a totally different experience from watching it edited, the chat room is always good fun and have had a few guests who have ran the course, with this being my 4th one i enjoy it and that included total victory in 27 which was a special experience as i never seen it done live

This will be my first live watch, I was in work during 28 so couldn't catch it live (watched the recording afterwards), but right now I'm out of work (since December) , so one 'advantage' is that I'm free to watch 29 live (and as I'm in the UK it's mid morning for us). Ironically I'm such a night owl that I have an alarm set to make sure I'm awake in time for the start!
