In an exciting development for the Smash scene, well known commentator and community member D1 and Team OXY's Crimson have both announced on Twitter that they will be joining the Twitch.tv family as representatives for the Smash community!



There are no exact details as to what exactly will be happening in these new jobs minus the promotion of the Smash scene but we do know this isn't the end of seeing these well known Smashers in their usual capacity due to a comment made by D1 on /r/smashbros.

"I still can't believe I've moved on to royal colored pastures. The thing is, I got a job with a company that lets me still do community manager work. I can still cast if the opportunity arises as well. Thank you so much for everything people. One of the best days of my life." -D1

Congratulations to both D1 and Crimson! Hopefully this means new exciting things for the world of Smash!

SmashCapps could only dream of having such a cool job, but Smashboards writer is still pretty cool! Go follow him on Twitter to keep up with every he's doing involving Smash.

D1 looks like Melee Fox to me and I'm so jealous of that. It's probably because every pic of him I see his face it to the left or right.

Damn, that's a dream job for you guys, congratulations !

I trust you guys with convincing Twitch to bring PM back in its game lineup, there's been some shady **** with "Moon" and stuff. It's not going to be easy but we all count on you <3

Just a tip for journalistic writing: don't begin an article (or a sentence even) with a parenthetical phrase.

"In an exciting development for the Smash scene," Just get right to the point. You also used the word "exact" twice in this sentence: "There are no exact details as to what exactly"

Happy writing.

Big name smash people always post their jazz on reddit now. No love for the boards.

I wish there were more ways for me to say thank you to all the smashers that kept me staying the scene for as many years as I did. This is no way signifies the end of my efforts to help Smash get more visibility. I'll still cast if I can, help with running a tournament if I can, do social media management, help promote other smashers, take part in interviews, and anything else that increases our exposure in a positive light. Thanks for being so awesome Smash community. It wouldn't have been possible without you.

P.S. - Had to give Smashboards the better thank you post as this is the place that helped me become who I am today.

Now if only Twitch could go back to the previous level of quality before Amazon bought them out...

Those who aren't paying partners or huge names are getting completely throttled by poor video quality and streaming lag.

10/10 criticism.

Also, someone pls (D1, Buster) give us the low-down on Twitch and the Project Moon glitch? I'm under the impression that Twitch is trying to protect us from Nintendo, but I could be wrong.
