Anders & Semmler
Norway firebox_is_triple_ffs 
Low tier casting. This is what happens when you put two play by play casters together. Nexa wallbangs electronic from hut and niko hears hit from vent so they confirm one player is there and the casters don't even mention this important detail. They don't even mention that niko saw s1mple going on the right vent by strafing from the ladder so they basically had full info and their retake worked flawlessly because of that.

people who call everything somewhat creative or entertaining cringe just for the sake of it should just mute the stream or watch the demo its so annoying

preparing bad rhymes pre cast is creative?
2021-06-20 19:28

id say yes, even if their rhymes are horrible theyre at least trying to entertain with that stuff which imo is a pretty cool change up to the standard casting
2021-06-20 19:31
i dunno ofc i dont like everything they will ever say or do to pass time during one of the hundreds of maps they cast a year, but generally they have good chemistry together, spunj is one of the few people who knows what hes talking about and is genuinely able to transmit excitement, and machine is just a very good pbp who manages to avoid cringe for the most part even during downtime and also understands the game very well.

Disagree tbh, if they were split and were paired in a more traditional casting duo they would be better.

I mean, at least they are enjoyable to listen to. Unless Sadokist or/and HenryG comeback, I really can't think of anyone else that doesn't straight up bore me but this is a very subjective topic so eh

HenryG is terrible. And ever since he got popular Sadokist tries too hard to be funny. Dan and bardolph are perfect

I actually always liked Henry though. I like his voice and the way he talks Sadokist can make everything interesting and captivating tho (ex. youtube.com/watch?v=jKvnGZ0IN8I) I completely forgot about ddk and James, but I still personally prefer Anders & Semmler

Semmler drives me up the wall. The man never says anything of substance, and most of what he says about what's happening just isn't true.

I don't think they're stupid or washed, they are just play by play casters and should stick to that role instead of trying to "analyze", something they don't even do for the most part.

semmler has been watching this game since its inception and probably other iterations of cs before this, there is just no excuse for the bollocks he talks on a regular basis imo, and i dont see this with machine for example. anders knows a lot more about the game but he usually doesnt get excited anymore about the games and when smth exciting happens he has to somehow go from 0 to 100% instantly and create some fake hype out of nothing, imo his pacing is really slow and often very poor.

Semmler is genuinely awful. He has never has anything of substance to say, so he just fakes a laugh every single round. He clearly puts in 0 effort in keeping up with the game.

It seems that its 8-17 job for him, he doesnt care at all, doesnt enjoy the game, he makes ton of filler empty phrases vaguely describing what happens, sometimes tries to hype but fails miserably, etc, etc, etc. Just terrible caster
2021-06-20 19:22
Semmler is past his days. He's not terrible, but he's definitely not the greatest. Anders and Semmler were pobably the best duo in 2017

He's actually terrible now, you're biased with nostalgia. Yes, he was casting legendary moments, but that gave him fame so he doesnt care anymore, his name is enough to get him hired. Obviously he's aware of that, and puts 0 effort in casting, he knows he doesn't have to put in effort

Good point, yeah I think I was biased with nostalgia, mostly it was Anders doing the legendary moment casting, Semmler was just kinda there for filler.

Semmler just doesn't care about the game anymore, it's just free attention and money for him. He doesn't pay attention, he doesn't study, he doesn't offer anything except fake laughters

Oh lol, I just read the full thread now. Apologies, I just thought you were simply saying they are bad casters. I agree that Anders and semmler are not as analytical as Spunj + Machine or Launders + Scrawny, sure. They don't catch all the nitty-gritties, as you pointed out. I just think they rely completely about talking us through the round, and hyping up the most important moments. I am not saying that a caster needs to be as proficient as an analyst, but a little more knowledge would have been better.

Fair enough, i just like the traditional play by play + color commentator setup more i guess.
2021-06-20 19:35
Anders + Moses were unbearable casting NA vs any other region games. They were so biased towards the NA team it straight up looked like cheering

I find them to be quite entertaining and they have amazing synergy. Personally I don't need someone analyzing every the game in detail while i'm watching it, I can do that myself. Nobody listens to the casters (or the analyst desk for that matter) and takes notes. Honestly, I don't even need casters to enjoy the game. Often I just listen to music instead. Never with Anders & Semmler though.
2021-06-20 20:04
I would really like Anders and Moses to cast. I enjoyed them.
2021-06-20 20:11
Semmler is play by play?
