Will Sadokis, the god of casting ever come back?
Machine is pretty great, I mean the commentary on the Cadian clutch was just perfect
Sadokist, HenryG, Moses, Anders.
How did noone mention him so far? :(
The daily caster thread and obligatory comment of mine mentioning HenryG and Sadokist, Black DDK and White Bardolph.
Sadokist and spunj in comments.
Hope sadokist may come back someday, it felt different to whatch a major match with him casting.
atm from active t1 cs, probably machine
overall anders or sadokist, tho black ddk is great as well.
Hard to pick just one, I like JZFB & SPUNJ the most at the moment. It's like of all time and the current one.
I guess Spunj or Launders
Very unpopular opinion
Scrawny, I'm not newfag but his energetic voice really hypes me up a lot, even if he is just reading our what is happening on the screen
Then launders' analysis evens it out so yea
Also old Anders and semmler duo, back when real teams used to play, fnatic envy sk/lg vp nip kinguin navi tsm
Scrawny + Launders
Machine + SPUNJ
anders + moses or spunj + machine
Sadokist, HenryG and Anders, Semmler <3
hugo + harry
machine + spunj
moses + anders my fav before
SPUNJ, Machine, Hugo, JustHarry, Anders, Pimp, Launders - all great
But Machine is king of casting AND hosting <3
Leninw and SL4M
2 best casters
Out of English speaking ones, scrawny and launders are clearly the best
unfortunately, they all kinda suck in one department: be it entertainer skills or strategic understanding of the game, and some even in both.
maybe they dont get payed enough or dont take any rhetoric courses and whatnot but when machine and spunj realize themselves mid-stream that theyre using the same phrases over and over again then you know its bad. why isnt there a back-check? like someone who is rating their casts afterwards and goes them thru with them? in every fucking job you got someone who is quality checking what you do. or is there? but then theyre doing a bad job.
plus, maybe besides harry (and a few lower tier ones) none of them have the infectious passion a lot of dota casters display when theres a great move.
some of them literally only call out the name of the players who do something "incredible". not to mention that theyre surprised oftentimes e.g. by flanks which clearly means they dont have enough oversight..
obviously i can only talk about the ones i do understand which are english and german speaking ones. i feel like theres a lot of passion with some other language speaking casters, but i cannot say anything about the level of understanding of the game, etc
