On a completely different note (cause 50 inch is a fine size for this type of thing) do most people nowadays consider 50 inches to be large for a TV or has working in an electronics store spoiled me?

If anything, I can see being super hot, especially in july, with all those people + lights + PCs, etc.

And if audience's aura makes some kind of lag inteference??
Better leave just the casters.

I have a 50 inch TV at home and it seems pretty normal to me. If it was smaller I'd probably think it's too small.

Just to clarify a few things:
  • When you are playing, you have a headset on that blocks/cancels basically all outside sounds. You even wear :ear: buds beneath that. You are not going to hear the audience. That's good, because otherwise you could hear the casters as well.
  • As you can imagine, you are in the literal spotlight when playing. Lights pointed at you leave the audience in the dark, and they aren't that distracting.
  • I've heard not a single complaint from any of the AoE2 players when they were playing, and they had a reasonably distracting audience (they were in pretty big numbers and holding signs and shouting and clapping).
  • If there is a player who is seriously distracted by the audience, I'm sure we can all move a few feet back and watch from there. Moving people is like moving posts: you just need to find the trash bin.

How will the casting be done? They close to players or separate room? Does audience hear casting from the tv speakers? Or from casters microphone? Will audience noise interfere with casting? If I’m there which I most likely will be, I’ll probably be clapping at the start of like every game and then getting loud when a big unit pop comes out or a nice catch on units.

To see a full tour of the studio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JqIXxrfiVS4

The casters are across the room, in a casting booth. The TV's are directly connected to the network: they broadcast whatever is displayed on the players' screens. That means that you won't have any delay in the studio. You are able to hear the casting throughout the studio. So most of us will be watching the TV's/players and hearing the casting live in the meantime.

Will audience noise interfere with casting?
I'm pretty sure there is no interference. I would be shocked if there was, they have professional equipment set up.

After I made that post I realised there won't be. There is the 10/15-second delay you always get, which means that the live audience can start spamming the chat with spoilers before the rest of the world will see it. Image

In all seriousness though, i'd be careful taking a knife to the UK. You can't really walk around with one on you legally and the penalty is rather large if you get caught.

@edeholland 's comments sum everything up quite nicely.

I'll take a video on my phone when I'm in the studio to give a better idea. But the players will be facing each other like in the video. The audience will be standing & sitting in the area around the stage (but will not be on the stage). They look closer than they are in the video (recorded with distorting fisheye GoPro).

The casters will be in the casting booth, it's not in a separate room but is far away. As mentioned the players will have their ears plugged. Feel free to clap and make noise, there's supposed to be atmosphere!
