ESL has announced the broadcast team for IEM Sydney that will be held in the Qudos Bank Arena in early May.

IEM Sydney will be held on May 3-7 in Sydney, Australia, and will feature eight teams such as FaZe, Astralis and SK battling for a ~$200,000 prize pool.

When picking the broadcast team for the upcoming IEM stop in Sydney, ESL decided to go for a mixture of local talent and well known on-screen Counter-Strike personalities.

The analyst desk will consist of Janko "YNk" Paunović and two Australians—Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill and Iain "SnypeR" Turner—while the hosting will be handled by Mitch "Uber" Leslie.

The commentary will be done by two duos, Sadokist-HenryG and Pansy-Moses, with the stage hosting to be covered by OJ Borg.

The full talent list is available below:

OJ Borg - Stage Host
Miles Ross - Reporter

Mitch "Uber" Leslie - Desk Host
Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill - Analyst 
Iain "SnypeR" Turner - Analyst  
Janko "YNk" Paunović - Analyst

No one wants thosd bad casters
2017-04-19 12:58:36
anders+semmler are great casters if something sick happens - they are great at building hype and making memorable moments.
2017-04-19 12:59:20
They are best casters imo
2017-04-19 13:03:30
They are bad, Semmler is the worst caster atm. I prefer BABAM over him.

2017-04-19 13:27:51
YawbuSs, are you kidding me?

wow take it ez, i said imo. dont feel offended ;(
2017-04-19 15:05:46
I mean if you juxtapose Semmler and Anders with Sadokist and HenryG, HenryG and Anders are both very good analyst in terms of the on-going game, but Sado beats Semmler in every perspective.
just my opinion tho
2017-04-19 16:23:54
i didnt feel offended at all. I dont have nothing against them. But when you have main casters that misunderstands A LOT of the plays made in the game, can't analyze the situation, and just focus to cheer up people, it's not a good thing. They miss too many things that happens in the game compare to the other casters. I preefer much more intelligent casters even without THAT MUCH excitement than only cheerleaders talking about the game. I think people should give more value to HenryG, the smartest caster on the big scene.
2017-04-19 20:09:10
They used to be great, yes. Now Semmler just overhypes everything and Anders is just fat. So people who have been watching for a while now have grown tired of them.

And since HenryG and Sadokist became a duo, Anders and Semmler became obsolete really.

+1 semmler annoys me most of the time
2017-04-19 13:25:30
+1 Semmler pls retire
2017-04-19 14:04:07
If there is someone who is overhypeing and cant even control it. Thats sadokist. I really like papa henry tho
2017-04-19 14:45:49
its not 2014 anymore
semmler is annoying af
2017-04-19 14:25:35
Anders and semmler are way better then henry amd sadokist imo.
2017-04-19 14:43:24
Yanko PogChamp
Pansy FailFish
2017-04-19 12:59:04
yanko best analyst in cs go
2017-04-19 12:59:50

And pansy is pure cancer
2017-04-19 13:00:29
Could have been thorin or blu which would have been worse but at least with thorin we need to listen to him for 5 mins at the end of the match and not 50 mins:/
2017-04-19 13:02:36
She is sooo much better than 2014/15 Pansy

She is fine imo, I agree with above, definitely better than Blu. Surprised she wasn't paired with uber though, interesting to see her duo with Moses.

Also Moses PogChamp
