The Copenhagen Games organisers have revealed the names of the shoutcasters of the CS:GO tournament.
A total of 32 teams will be in action at the Danish event, which will run from March 27th to 31st, with hopes of getting their hands on a piece of the tournament's €33,000 prize purse, the second highest since CS:GO was released.
Almost all European heavyweights, like Ninjas in Pyjamas, VeryGames and Natus Vincere, will fly to the Danish capital for this event, but there will also be Curse and Quantic Gaming in representation of the United States.
It has now been revealed that the tournament will also feature some of the most famous shoutcasters in the business, including Corey Dunn, who recently commentated on the DreamHack Winter Games.
Other shoutcasters include Niels "rizc" Topp, who is currently working for fnatic, former Norwegian CS:Source player Simen "warclown" Henriksen and Lauren "pansy" Scott, who burst onto the shoutcasting business in the Call of Duty 4 scene.
Copenhagen Games 2013 shoutcasting lineup:
Simen "warclown" Henriksen
Niels "rizc" Topp
Lauren "pansy" Scott

sayin that warclown has no knowledge is total bullshit
Too bad we don't see much of him nowadays.
hoping he will cast CPH games as well :D
For those wondering why Im not at CPH Games, I wasnt asked :)
He's 10000x times better than ricz and warclown.
However Corey Dunn is a good co-commentator.
Redeye is also an amazing commentator. Doing his job very professional.
What annoys me the most about ricz and warclown is that they always try to sound like they would be experts though their knowledge about high level CS is very limited. And they always try to hype up every standard situation with fake emotions (probably because they don't understand it). Redeye and miller on the other hand don't act like they would be super-experts and they do their job with true passion.
Don't get me wrong. I'm not hating on ricz and warclown. Compared to Miller and Redeye they're still "newcomers" in that business, so I guess they will improve with time.
It's a shame you guys don't speak German. I swear this guy "Knochen" is the most talented caster I've ever seen.

"no flame" i lol'd
but too true bro
If they want to cast games on Twitch that's up to them but stop hiring these people for events.
PLEASE have GOTV available for ALL games so we don't have to shoot ourselves in the head.

looking forward to event more now.
Because as much I like the enlgish commentators, none of them can compete with "Knochen's" excitement. The passion he and his cocasters bring to the stream is just beyond comparison.
Anyway, looking forward to a great tournament with huge competition
-NIP defending their legacy
-NaVi going strong
-Anexis' old danish lineup showing their poential -fnatic in their best form since CSGO
-Rattlesnk and his team
-ESC, N!, Verygames and so many more great teams.
Since CS:GO the first tournament with all the top teams and as many games as needed to guarantee that only the very best progress to the playoffs.
btw: does anyone else reacall Pansy's first CS:GO casts? she did the I47 with machine, and although I liked her style, she had very little knowledge of CS strategies by then. haven't seen her casting since, and I'm interested in how her knowledge has improved.
