History Edit

The Not So Good Old Days Edit

Blazing Larvesta opened up his channel on August 19, 2016, though he had not made any videos until his first countdown, Top Ten Disappointing Games, on December 20, 2016.[1]

That said, Larvesta would not start making commentaries until September 9, 2017, where he made a response video to Phantom N's on his Disappointing Games list. Unfortunately for Larvesta, his commentary was very poorly received, with it being commentated on by Lebers and Doodletones.

His commentary on ProJared was also a source of major backlash, with many citing it as one of, if not his worst commentary to date.[2][3][4][5] The video was the target of several commentaries, and was where Larvesta had truly started to become a bandwagon within the CC.[6][7][8][9][10]

Overall, his videos at the time, especially his commentaries, were not well received, with Keyblade Master ranking him as the worst commentator of 2017,[11] and Kirbystarwarrior ranking him as the 2nd worst commentator of all time, losing only to TheMetalBlade5. [12]

Hiatus and Return Edit

On February 6, 2018, Larvesta had announced in the comments of his fourth countdown that he would be taking a short break from YouTube to reflect on some of the criticism that he had been receiving over the past year.[13]

"Just want to let you guys know I’m going to be taking a break from YouTube for a little bit.
I’m dealing with a few things IRL, and I want to get those taken care of ASAP.
That, and I’ve been getting a lot of backlash lately, and I want to take some time to reflect on a few things."

Larvesta announcing his hiatus back in February.

He would not be seen online since then until he suddenly disowned six of his videos, including his commentaries on Phantom N and ProJared, on March 31, 2018. His next video following his hiatus would be his commentary on Sean S, released on June 7, 2018, followed by a commentary on Halofan HP00 on October 21, 2018. Both videos were widely considered to be an improvement over Larvesta's pre-hiatus videos, and he has since started to become more positively received.

Making Changes Edit

On January 28, 2019, Larvesta had put up an update video discussing the future of his channel as well as updates on videos he was working on.[14] As far as commentaries were concerned, he had stated that he was going to put less attention to them so as to put more attention to his other videos, such as his Let's Plays. Despite this, he would still go on to make commentaries on his channel in 2019, such as his commentary on Lucky Crit on February 17.[15]

Larvesta's new thumbnail style for his commentaries.

Another change Larvesta would make to his channel would be the thumbnails on his videos, as he had switched over to a new style of thumbnails on his commentaries the day after his update video. His Lucky Crit commentary mentioned above would be the first commentary to start off with the new thumbnail style.

On February 9, 2019, Larvesta had announced that he would start crediting the fan art that he had been using in his videos in a Google Doc that he would place in the description of his major projects (i.e. countdowns, reviews, commentaries). [16] This followed a recent outburst from certain commentators both in and out of the CC to tell other commentators to credit artists of art pieces used in commentaries, which at the time was taken for granted by some commentators, most infamously in The Cloud Palace's then recent commentary on TheCamProject. While the document was (and still is) heavily incomplete when Larvesta made it public, he hopes to finish it as quickly as possible. The Google Doc in question was first seen in one of Larvesta's videos in his Lucky Crit commentary, and can be found in the link below.
