I mean they used to be funny when they first started. But lately they barely play minecraft anymore, and the other games they play and not entertaining to watch at all. They pretend to be bad at the game just to try to make it funny. I heard they are not nice guys in real life. I know the drunk Notch twitter posts turned out to be false, but they leave nasty comments sometimes. Some youtubers actually deserve fame because they are great at the game and make amazing builds. But yogcast, they just act like idiots and break all the rules in a challenge map. And the only mildly entertaining series they had, SoI, they barely play anymore. Care to think of more reasons?
So would you agree they are slightly Edit: EXTREMELY overrated?

Agreed.

They used to be funny, but now, jeesh.

Someone post a playthough of ONE recent challenge map they've played when they didn't break any of the map rules.

Thats the only thing i don't agree with in your post
they are insanely overrated
and now they are making "yogventures" which is a complete copy of minecraft, the game they supported so much
its like saying "this game is sh#@, because its not my game"

I honestly never thought they were funny, even in SoI. I think what they're doing wrong is that they act completely dumb and break all rules in an attempt to be funny, when a more entertaining way of being funny is actually playing the map and acting dumb without completely destroying the map.

Or, more likely, they like the game, so they want to make a copy of it. I made my own 2D Minecraft (it's not published, though) not because I think Minecraft is terrible, but because I liked it so much that I wanted to make a copy.

If they thought Minecraft was terrible, they wouldn't be playing it. That's what they did with WoW.

Never liked them, never will.
They are not funny, nor can they be funny.

They are just annoying.
I tried to watch a couple of episodes but they're honestly almost as bad as little 11, 12 year old kids doing LPs.
I just can't stand them.

They got popular for two reasons. Acting like idiots and having deep, British accents. Most of there audience is American, and Americans LOVE accents.

And who would pay money for more yogadventures crap? It's just a cheap rip-off of minecraft that probably took 2 days to make. They are just show dicks to everybody also.

All let's play series suck. They are not creative, or original. Most of them are 12 year old kids stuttering, or 40 year old men making dick jokes every 5 seconds. The yogscast aren't that different. There should be no "how to survive your first night" or things like that because minecraft has no specific way on doing certain tasks. It's all how the player plays the game. I'm really ashamed that there's a "let's play" subforum as well. Let's play are not creations or machinima.

I really don't think they act like that to be honest. My theory is they act like 12 year old idiots on purpose to be entertaining, was never funny though.

It's all about opinion, personally I like some let's players. I like seeing what they do, how they accomplish certain tasks, even what tasks they make for themselves. I may even copy what they do and try to improve upon it or marvel at how they came up with it. I enjoy seeing how they react to situations I have encountered. It has to be done right, something the yogscast is severely inept at.

WoW is not their bread and butter. If they were to suddenly pull minecraft and start playing cod they would lose some of that youtube $$.  They would still have a loyal fanbase, but minecraft made them rich. They will keep playing for business reasons, no matter what they personally feel about the game. I think they still enjoy it but seem to be kind of dull lately. The minecon behavior / tinman / peva controversy doesn't help their image either... But you have got to admit that they are part of the reason minecraft has gotten huge.  I do tend to skip more and more of their videos lately though.

They got lucky with how people accepted their sheer stupidity. After the first 50 minecraft videos i slowly stopped caring. They're ok and all but they're better out in the lands of youtube...

Speaking of better, i dont mean to toot my own horn.

Lols.

Yeah i  would have to agree with most. Lets play videos have a lifespan. Your fan base ages and as they get older they stop caring. Making videos that are relevant to only the young has its issues and yogcast is slowly having to learn that.
What they need to do is start maturing the content for their audience as they age.

I agree. At least when Tobuscus does it, he isn't completely obvious about it like the Yogscast.

(P.S... TOBUSCUS FTW! :D)

I think that the "fame" got to their heads. When they made that 'scene' post Minecon, is when it was very clear that they have let it go over their heads. Seriously, they're not all that.
