I think Spunj has to be included there. He may not know as much as them but if he isnt sure he either asks (in hltv confirmed) or he asks for observers help or he doesnt talk about it (usually). More casters and analysts should do this because i know its hard to focus on the game and catch everything and cast at the same time. But talking out of your ass live infront of 100K + viewers is just bad idea...

Lau is one of the best casters out there: his voice isn't as smooth as Bardolph's but it's not an annoying one either. He's incredibly smart, and always insightful. He's truly revolutionary, having launched a clothing line too. A very skilled caster, and one I'm always happy to see casting the games I care about

Maybe it’s just because he’s paired up with scrawny, but I always feel like he’s a more of a viewer than a caster if you know what I mean. Like he watches the play without casting it and then he’s just like wow that’s was insane with x play.

nah Scrawny + lau goated combo
2021-09-26 17:49
Scrawny + lau is more knowledgeable about the game stuff than any other duo there is and they are not afraid to speak about those thing. Stylistically it is different from others, but I really much like that there are different styles between duos. Especially when watching groups stage games. Regarding the same topic, I personally find it annoying that all the most important games in ESL currently seem to be casted by Spunj&Machine. Especially Machine can have weird tonal changes that may or may not reflect the situation in game at all.

Knowledge doesn’t equal entertainment, which is the job of the casters. I switched to fl0m’s stream just because they’re not talking as much and only talking about the game
2021-09-26 18:33
1 reply
I know what you mean, but I don't agree with you, especially regarding group stage games. I personally do find lots of entertainment value in facts and meta-talk. Even when watching regular sports I often find myself wondering why there isn't more that kind of stuff. Point being, I'm glad that some casters are not taking the safe route and doing what is proven to be acceptable. That we have variety between different pairs, so we are even able to have this conversation.
2021-09-27 02:30
I actually very much agree about Machine, although I think he's solid, and balances well with SPUNJ for the most part. I feel that Harry+Hugo and Scrawny+Lau do a better job of managing their tone to reflect the in game situation. Lau sometimes is more of an in-broadcast analyst and less of a caster, but I think it's totally ok because Scrawny does a good job of managing the play by play. If Lau was a little less monotone I think he and Scrawny would blend even better.
2021-09-26 21:53

Can't agree you more. Its not like I think Machine is a bad caster, he is just not my favorite. And nowadays, since esl is so dominant, we hear so much of Spunj&Machine. ESL should give Harry+Hugo some smaller final to cast to bring some variety to esl finals in general.
2021-09-27 02:48
The worst casters in the game. Lau got the worst references and is so incoherent. His accent is good, but his references are so out of place. He should learn a thing or two from maniac who has clear french accent but atleast has useful things to say as an analyst.

Maniac is one of the best analysts, if not the best. He's likable and has well-researched takes that show he has a thorough understanding of the game, He's a better analyst than caster, though.

Thats true that maniac and Launders have different roles. But i am just trying to compare how they communicate. Being a non native speaker myself, living in NA, i have a nuanced understanding of how people approach language. Some people focus too much on accent and miss the point of speaking which is conveying information and thoughts in a very humanistic way. I have been like Launders where my accent had been fantastic, but now i rather be like maniac who is a great conversation maker.
