wtf did you say about spunj you little bitch
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.
But Spunj is an ex-pro LUL
I agree that Machine and Stunna should stick to hosting. Also SPUNJ good analyst but maybe stick to what you know.
There are plenty of casters available, it's just that the tournament-organizers stick to the people they know.
lmao you just said henryG hugo harry are the best casters
0/8 dumb kid
I typically leave the audio for flashpoint on over esl because flashpoint has better casters and they don't play the same shitty 5 songs over and over
thats only u opinion dude :) personaly me i like spunj machine and stunna casting.
I agree but I have seen some casters with very low experience and people in the chat were making fun of them because they all get used to listening better casters.
I was thinking on that these days as well. I'm missing so much sadokist and John "blu" mullen
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.
Harry is one of the worst casters only better than someone like pimp but that is obviously not saying much.
Flashpoint definitely have the better casters
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
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.
> says cs needs to "encourage ex pros to join in" as casters
> proceeds to say spunj is shit
i like henry and machine, i think they should date
Spunj is a cuck and machine is cringe but henryG is cool
at least EN community has casters when in RU segment we have or outdated talents or young from which speech ears bleed
100% agree about spunj and machine. Can't stand their games at all
I agree about the spunj thing, his casting got annoying really fast.
spunj machine and henryg is pure gold, wdym? Entertaining as hell.
just watch this fucking stream, what in the fuck are they talking about. their just talking about a fucking app where they test their knowledge against eachother (words with friends some british game).
Imagine thinking hypecasters needs to know about the game. their point is just to yell "PENTAKILL"
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.
Exacly, + 1000 we need better casters to make competition and force the others to improve
We have some of the best casters in esports the fuck are you talking about hahahaha
it's ok to have wrong opinions
Hugo's sounds are pretty damn funny.
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.
Spunj is a great analyst he's carrying the Desk .
Stunna is a great host too .
I agree with everything else . 👌
+1 Spunj is fucking ass get off the stage
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
i dont think there is a number big enough that represents how much i agree with what you just said!
eeh not sure how much i agree but harry and hugo are great thats for sure, best duo atm
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.
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.
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)
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
I think it's just for this event tbh. Stunna has always mainly focussed on hosting/interviewing.
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.
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.
moses and anders r the only casters who actually know wats going on almost all the time
I just want James Bardolph to be the only caster.
