CASTERS ARE ASS!
 | 
United States 10YearBansRUs 
I think CS needs to allow for more new casters and encourage ex pros to join in. Its better than the shit we've got right now. Allowing analysts like Spunj to cast is a mistake and Machine is constantly misunderstanding situations. HenryG is kinda known for calling stuff too early so i guess thats fine. Stunna is a great desk host and interviewer but he really has lost his grasp of the game in my opinion. Harry and Hugo are great examples of casters who care about the game and arent part of the current circle jerk of casters who are more interested in talking to eachother about their shitty ESEA games or retarded opinions of executes pros practice for days on end. Its honestly ridiculous, i wish i could have a stream of just the players without the casters online.

kkkkkk spunj is nice. imo he is like the guy that deserves the most to be there. by far, i mean he was a tier 1 PRO. some others have merit because of good information they bring like thorin (altough he is kind of a biased jerk sometimes).

I totally agree. I used to watch every single 1.6 event just because the casters were decent enough. I even had to wake up at 3 am (peruvian time) to see the euro events. There is a HUGE flaw that most casters acquire from each other and its the ego. These silvers have never played against top teams, not even online once so they don't understand the intricacies of teamplay. So they call Zeus a bot, they make fun of pro players mistakes. Its not that the teams or players do not see that raw aim is compromised when you take a leading or supporting role but its also that you have to put the team needs over your fragging needs. I cannot stand Semmler, that bot is too fucking cocky and ignorant for me to take him seriously for even a second. I guess the one I like the most is Moses, he seems humble enough to be a good caster in the future.

As I said, he is decent. But I don't see him as a great CS:GO caster with deep understading of teamplay/tactics

Pimp but he's a shitty caster, more of an analyst
2020-04-04 21:32
I agree with the reply above, I believe PIMP can give the audience a lot of insight about strats, player roles and rotations. I also loved to see seangares, n0thing and lurppis casting, I gotta say from those lurppis was my favourite since he did a few 1.6 casts back in the day and I remember having enjoyed them a lot.

wtf is the point in an analyst desk if they just talk shit the entire time they also talked about JW using the R8 literally half the game. why not analyse threats approach to the game and how they're dominating, perhaps talk about the viability of the krieg on overpass and the flashes NiP were using.

You legit said that you want them to talk about the viability of the krieg on overpass then when i tell you they will talk about weapons at the analysts desk you say it will just be krieg op talk. Why dont you just stop bitching and watch the fucking game. Everybody seems to respect your opinion but you only talk shit about their opinion and why they like casters. The analyst desk talks about the tactics, thats why its called the analyst desk you dunce, stop being so dense

talking about how the krieg is op and how the krieg can be used is two different things. "Yes valve need to fix krieg, too op tytyty" is different to "i really like the long setups that can be done with the krieg for example x player used this perfectly in tandem with y players flash, as you can see here..." i never said people cant enjoy the casters infact im trying to enjoy the game by suggesting a way to watch without these retards orgasming in my ear. If you dont want to read or talk about my opinion and want me to shut the fuck up how about you just dont click the thread? im not forcing you to read anything ive got to say. superiority complex much?
2020-04-04 20:58

Stunna is just too dumb. Cant really blame his lack of skills because he wont understand everything we want him to. HenryG got a lot of knowledge of the game but he is quite annoying to listen to sometimes. He is gabbling like a crazy man and over explains. We see what happens, we dont need to hear it when it happens + afterwards. He also says "surely" all the time instead of just letting it happen. He dont need to state the obvious all the time, we all have eyes. Harry and Hugo are the kings. They bring a positive mood and they make it fun to watch.
2020-04-04 19:50
why cant you blame him for being too dumb to understand the game? he chose to do this for a living.

Machine is good with Henry, Henry is knowledgeable and passionate about the game while Machine is witty and well spoken, and they also have great chemistry together I also like Hugo and Harry, I wasn't a huge fan of Hugo in the beginning, but he meshes well with Harry Anders I think has been on steady downhill, it just seems like he's lost his passion for casting and is not much about hype anymore, but trying to be funny instead Moses is still good, but he's gotten very stale with Anders. I haven't heard Semmler casting a lot since he came back, but he used to be really good at lightening up the mood I also haven't heard Bardolph and DDK lately, they used to be my favorite duo. I loved their chemistry and deadpan humor. and they were also really good at hype casting
2020-04-04 19:52
Bardolph and DDK seem as dead as Anders, semmler pairings are alright (although I don't particularly like the guy he actually seems to enjoy what he's doing)
2020-04-04 19:58

i personally like SpunJ, Machine and HenryG's casting style. I can understand why you dont like it because of the reasons you've stated but in my opinion they bring a bit of humour to the online games. Because of the current online play there is no chance for the casters to use the crowd energy and interaction to be able to make it personal and special and even though they chat some utter rubbish i find it a bit like a podcast which i enjoy especially whilst watching top tier CS. Obviously this is just my opinion though so no shade, just thought i would put my two cents in.

2020-04-04 21:32
this game isnt about emotions, its about staying calm under pressure, banter is something that ppl are supposed to do while they are playing themselves. what is the purpose of casters creating hype? either the game is hype itself and they are only screaming over it, or the game isnt hype and they are just faking being super hyped so they can hold the attention of 16yo kids with ADD certifications and dinosower clantags. if you need a screaming idiot to hype you up for a game, congratulations, youre an idiot.

Do you realize that most of the viewers of the tourneys are the casual players? Not die hard csgo fans. If it was just pure gameplay without casting which is what you are hoping for, the tournaments would lose 90% of the viewership.-
2020-04-04 22:03
good riddance, then there would be less money in the scene and less reasons for people to cheat, it would be win win situation for me.
2020-04-04 22:04
i just dont see the appeal of it. do 16yo kids really need a guy to read the killfeed out to them in a super fake excited voice to care about the game? if they dont care why are they watching in the first place? it just makes the game seem dumber and less interesting to have casters with such limited game knowledge that all they can do is read stuff from the screen.

There is a lot of alternate streams which might have more in-depth analysis. Also I think analyzing isn't really part of casting, its nicer to get from stuff like Elmabuddy's (GenG's coach) content.

Spunj isn't a caster, they're doing a three way cast because it's online so he can add some extra context as an analyst during a match instead of having the whole time between games n stuff. I'd like to see launders getting a shot at the top again and that's about it. Newcomers have been pretty bad honestly, hugo and harry were like the ESL Promise and they're kinda meh, harry yells too much, if he could change that he'd be fine, Hugo is budget HenryG and I only say that because they're both british, at least Henry can add a bit more to a cast. To be fair I'm tired of brits and that might just be me. I'd like to see a few pros coming back to casting but I could understand if they don't want to.

1. Great, but lets talk reality. He's casting, hes not analyzing, hes shit at casting /close 2. Launders was very shit on hype, with his partner whos name has left me he was alright at best 3. I know, but they're better than the incestual circlejerk of casters we've got right now, we need new ones to keep improving. They've got a monopoly on all events and leagues and its stupid 4. South East Brits are the most well spoken and easiest to understand.
2020-04-04 20:44
Well they're the tier 1 talent so it makes sense they get invited to every event. Even if it is a circlejerk. And I doubt Hugo and Harry are better than any other casting duo atm. It seems like spunj is getting more into the whole casting thing on these games, at the start he was just watching other games and bringing info, and yeah he's clearly not a caster. I think Launders was duo casting with Dust, and I fucking hate dust, he's a fat ugly fuckboy, idek how he manages to do that. Which is why I think you could try and pair launders with someone else and see how it goes. Vince and tombizz I think could be good aswell, but in general casters have not been that good lately. If we talk about pros, I think only sean has been anywhere near casting? Spunj is another one but it's proven he sucks, idk who else could join it.
2020-04-04 21:01
spunj is literally the only caster at current ESL league who even tries to say anything about the game that isnt already in the HUD on screen. launders does this as well. every time 1 guy shows up who actually knows some stuff about the game, he has to go because "no hype" aka he doesnt scream like a 15yo kid with down syndrome on speed for every headshot.
2020-04-04 21:04
I don't know if you've seen a little Flashpoint lately, but sean is really good at what you're asking for, and he instantly got flamed for being bad and boring. To me, his knowledge and presentation thereof is priceless, but dumbo twitch chat will always scream their useless opinions the loudest
2020-04-04 21:36
yes that happens every time they get a guy with some game knowledge, like launders or spunj a year or so ago. they just want to chill out and talk about the game and idiots in twitch chat start posting ResidentSleeper because they arent hearing any random noises and incoherent screaming after every headshot. and then these guys arent asked back or they have to start casting like a retard as well to get attention.

The average twitch chat user is probably in a stage in his life and gaming 'career' where he thinks he doesn't need the knowledge, thus it bores him. It's typically the morons that are the most unappreciative. A guy like Machine couldn't analyze his way out of a paper bag. Maybe ESL believes that the newer audience are the ones they should be banking on, and viewers with 8 years of experience already understands the game well enough themselves to not need things analyzed for them. To be fair, though, I think Henry is fairly good. He has a few flaws, yes, but whenever he sees bullshit and horrible mistakes being made, he actually reacts to it. You can tell he still loves the game, because bad cs annoys him. I guess he's the kind you either love or hate
2020-04-04 21:52
well yeah of course they are banking on a young audience, that makes sense, what doesnt make sense to me is that they dont offer the older audience any alternative for the dumbed down kiddie hype cast. i would pay like 100 euros per year at least for a channel that doesnt do that.
2020-04-04 21:57
I feel like the general CS talent pool has been getting worse. The duos that once ruled have either been broken up or fallen off. Semmler is probably the worst out of all casters right now

100%. Its been the same casters for many years and it means they can be complacent, block people on twitter who critise them and don't change as they have the guarenteed ESL etc money. Its a literal monopoly on tier 1 CS
2020-04-04 20:49
its called "esports welfare" and it happens in every scene, you have a bunch of useless washed up old guys around who are only getting paid because they know people.
2020-04-04 21:01
We have some of the best casters in esports the fuck are you talking about hahahaha

Its almost as if opinions can differ and without providing a basis for yours you are just wasting your time? Just a thought.
2020-04-04 20:51
???????? its just a bunch of immature retards who think doing drugs makes them cool and screaming = hype oh and they all fuck each other in the ass im pretty sure
2020-04-04 21:00
it's ok to have wrong opinions
2020-04-04 20:50
Hugo's sounds are pretty damn funny.
2020-04-04 20:54
all they do is read out information everyone can see on the screen like the killfeed, grenade count, amount of players alive, which guns they have, what spot they are in, etc. literally worse than useless. would be better if they just said nothing most of the time unless they actually have something to say. if you want a channel without casters check out cobrastrikegaming on twitch.
2020-04-04 20:58
Spunj is a great analyst he's carrying the Desk . Stunna is a great host too . I agree with everything else . 👌

2020-04-04 21:30
SpunJ is great, leave the poor guy alone, his work is really good. Get SpunJ to do his analysis with Harry and Hugo casting. Can even rotate them with Scrawny and Launders. Wanna see more of these casters
2020-04-04 21:35
or just remove all the useless idiots and let spunj and launders cast together
2020-04-04 21:40
??? wtf no You need a few sets of casters to rotate around
2020-04-04 21:41
why do you need screaming idiots to make the game fun to watch
2020-04-04 21:41
Screaming is very situational (or should be) For most, it's nice to have hype accompanying the games, especially when the play itself is a real nice one, like this: youtube.com/watch?v=P4Fqhs1PlQA It's the right amount of hype for the play. I get why you think about screaming idiots, the first clip here doesn't deserve the hype of the caster. youtube.com/watch?v=mtcLILJ3LIg
2020-04-04 21:47
just the first 5 seconds of that first clip is 1 guy literally non stop talking so fast and so loud compared to game sound that i cant hear what the fuck is going on and he isnt saying anything useful, would instantly mute. and then after hobbit gets the clutch he is screaming so loud that his voice cracks and probably literally cumming in his pants. im not gay, im not interested in hearing that. and some faggot screaming "OH MY GOD" doesnt make the play any cooler than it already was. these idiots are trying to build a personal brand by screaming really loud over other peoples accomplishments. get them the fuck out of the theatre asap. he could just say "wow that was a really nice clutch, i liked how he stood his ground and calmly played it out and waited for a mistake when he was in the 1v3" like a cultured intellectual person instead of screaming OH MY GOD like a retard because the same name shows up 3 times in the killfeed. im 90% sure that they arent even watching the screen while casting, only looking at the killfeed.
2020-04-04 21:52
Hype isn't for everyone, but it's an important tool in casting. You'd prefer analytical casters, so just go watch people like DDK, Scrawny, Launders, Seangares etc Otherwise start casting yourself and see how that goes

I agree with you. Would be better to have actually short commentaries about what is happening during the match. I think only high skilled players can cast in that way, so basically they explain some little details about what is happening. This would be more insteresting for people who actually want to learn and explore knowledge in the game. Listening for the hype and such is cool, but sometimes it is just cringe. Especially for people who want to focus on the game but not on the talkings of the casters.

Also to add that none of the casters is above lvl 6 on FACEIT (only henryg is 9 or so), so of course their gamesense is minimal compared to pros or just advanced players.
2020-04-04 21:44
I do not agree. And Hugo and Harry, nah, it shows that they are young and not that experienced and they make more faulty comments that the older guys.
2020-04-04 21:44
Man, cs had the best casters, dating since 1.6 era... Joe Miller and Machine(cant really remember other names) were killing it. Machine was my fav desk host by far. Joe Miller was legendary. Anders(never liked his duo), ddk/black ddk, sadokist(never liked henryG) were the best casters csgo could have. All 3 duos had humor, analysis midround(even tho henryG and the other kuk w/ anders were talking bullshit alot of the times) and hype. And they were good with their duos because no single caster had all 3 of them(anders had analysis/hype, the other f*ck had "humor", black ddk had hype+humor, ddk had analysis etc) Spunj and YNk are probably the best analysts(I would rate 3rd Thorin, and all the backlash i'll get is understandable, but I like his banter and his analysis is far better than most), probably because they were inside a pro team and can think of how strategies work(I think ynk was pro/semipro in 1.6?) All this shit rn is just exhausting to hear... Talking about esea pugs(yea we get it, its your sponsor) when a round unfolds, however doomed one team seems, is just unprofessional. Calling out names/laughing at pros is just unprofessional. You can say w/e you want during a long pause(I still remember watching bardolph talking about a toy grenade in a faceit final for 30mins due to tech issues and laugh my ass off), but not during a fucking round. What you need is a fucking caster to call names/positions and be hyped(offline)/funny(online) and one who can analyse a bit of a round(not strategies etc, but a crucial kill, or why lack of smokes lost them the round or w/e)
2020-04-04 21:45
Ok man, for you I will create and alter-ego and start casting. I know the game and have a silky UK voice so you can worship me
2020-04-04 22:04
I think it's just for this event tbh. Stunna has always mainly focussed on hosting/interviewing.
2020-04-04 22:09
agree about everything besides spunj

Hugo and harry are definitely improving and are decent but still make a lot of mistakes for example referencing wrong players and just wrong info but they are still decent.
2020-04-05 00:32
Spunj is really good caster, I like how he explains stuff, he really knows how to analyse the game. Stunna is a hype man, he doesn't really have much input in casting, its Harry and Hugo 99% of the time, so he is also fine. Harry and Hugo are fine. HenryG is a hype man, he knows what goes on most the time and he is an iconic caster, so I guess he is fine too. Machine is doesn't know whats going on like 60% of the time, he is not a good caster.
