Honestly, most of these casters wouldn't be my first choice. Lol. They seem to need quality training on removing personal bias and providing solely impartial observations mixed with enlightening & entertaining commentary. A majority of the time I can tell you exactly which player/team casters & analysts are cheering for. I think the community really rallied behind Scrawny & Launders as favs because they just seem like intelligent & insightful CS Fans who know how to hype the dopeness, criticize the dumbness, empathize with the toughness, and stay sincere & objective about every in-game play. Would love if all of production was like that.

be grateful at least the casters and analyst have us representation. otherwise there are only two us players in the event and they are also from replacement team

great move, now instead of ruining the desk segments during breaks in the games, Maui will be ruining the games during breaks in the desk segments

Who did he call out that broke your heart? Maui top 2 on desk. Can cast, host, interview. Do you close your eyes and see Mauis face when you try and sleep. Maybe go to Valorant if it pains you so much. bye bye

He's shit at his job and if he didn't try to impersonate Thorin occasionally to stay relevant, everyone could see what a useless analyst he is.

Any facts to back up your anger? Check out articles where his peers say he is top three. Oh, and he gets hired to do majors. All facts point to you being wrong. Put your EU sensitivities away where you cry when someone speaks straight. Grow up. I hear Valorant is a softer game. Maybe it’s for you.

I don't mind his hot takes, I'd just like all his level-headed analysis to be on a higher level than an average silver, if he is to act as an analyst on the broadcasts. The reason why you come at me from this angle is also, because you cannot point out anything else he provides that is of value to you or anyone else.

His works speaks for itself. The desk time doesn’t allow in-depth analyses. His takes trend and make news. And not just the hot ones. Can you say that for Pimp? Maniac? No. Watch his YouTube for the in-depth detailed analysis. Check out Snake and Banter. He’s at a level so much higher than the forums.

I can only comment his desk and casting performance by what he presents in said performances. It seems that he has the time for his hot takes and for regurgitating the same point multiple times over, so maybe some of that could be spent on saying something of value? Yet he does not.

I watch the desk closely. He is one of the few that does homework and comes up with fresh takes consistently. His peers gush over the amount of prep work he does. And they see it. Not all his takes are great but so much better than others that do no homework and repeat HLTV stats.

baiting people with edgy takes for his own clout and repeating storylines that were dictated before the tournament even started is not insight. Also the absolute lobotomy level disconnect from any sense of humor does not help his case either, what is he doing in an entertainment industry...

Ok. He’s far and away the funniest and wittiest guy when he does desks. Maybe it’s a cultural thing and he’s not your cup of tea but he’s flat out one of the bests. Sorry, your opinion is in a vast minority and since he gets hired a lot maybe you should find another hobby.

yeah, Empire State size stick up his ass and the most desperate approach to everything to put his edgy opinion out for his own clout just makes him look pathetic in my eyes. Kinda trying the Tate strat with edgy opinions and then talking about generic useless things anyone can talk about with minimal CS knowledge. You are literally the only person who said Maui is great. Glad you enjoy it, but if we are to conduct any wide vote - him and pimp would be down bad from all "tier 1" analysts. Could also be a cultural thing the other way, you just may be weird. NA telling others that they should not be interested in CS.... does not check out.... but checks out on what level you may consider things to be "witty".... NA education....

A. He doesn’t do what you said. He doesn’t do takes for clout you head is messed up. B. He only offends the hyper sensitive. He’s nothing like Tate. That’s an absurd take. C. His peers all say in articles he’s top three on desk. So I’m not the only one. Do you see him on desks? Would they put someone as bad as your take on a desk. The facts say you are wrong. D. You don’t like him. Fine. But the reasons you list are factually incorrect, i.e. lies. You try to tear him down and if you were honest you know he knows so much more than you ever will, and makes money from it, your anger makes you make up cliche criticisms that are so obviously not true it makes me laugh. Hope I gave you a little fun to fill your hollow life.

Murican telling me my head is messed up..... sure, nice gaslighting attempt, low level but expected I didn't say he is like Tate, I said he uses similar approach, again murican can't distinguish those things. Facts as said by you? Sure It's impressive someone got so offended that someone has ammunition to say things that oppose to your sacred opinions. Telling me my life is hollow while you are insulting me over my opinion that Maui is a waste or air time is just sad. And even attempt to gaslight me to tell me I'm angry for simply telling my opinion. Which is true, Maui is a waste of air time. deal with it. Your opinions are terrible and you got overly offended that someone thinks different. Impressive.

Blast why is Maui still hired as any sort of talent!?!??! When he's on the desk, I insta skip it, when he's casting, I fall asleep from his monotone voice every time, please get rid of him.

Maui is simply a top 3 desk analyst right now. My opinion. TO’s opinion based on him working majors. Peers opinion based on podcast comments and interviews. You can’t please everyone so there will be outliers in Reddit and forums that disagree. Agree to disagree. The dude elevates casts and deserves to be at events. Majority opinion.

How can you say "majority opinion" when you're out here defending him on your own against anyone who says otherwise in the thread lol. You'd think someone else would rep for him, but they don't. I never see anyone who likes him except USA flairs, and well. You can't please everyone of course, but his job is to provide analysis and provide something to the stream, and when 95% of people dislike him, well then what does he provide if it's only negative??? He is the sole reason I don't listen to desk segments a majority of the time. Even if his analysis is "so good" and I'm just delusional, if a large majority don't like you on the desk, and your job is to provide something, then you gotta go.

None at all, notice how I still said ynk, kassad and thorin are all far better than him on a desk, yet they make far more controversial opinions, but you know why they're better? Because they say logical shit not just utter something out and then slowly reverse when thorin and kassad tell him why he's wrong on snake and banter lmfao. I disagree with a lot of thorin's takes yet his input is still one of the best in the scene and he's one of the best.

He uses similar approach to Tate but that doesn’t mean he’s like Tate? Your words. And my education is bad. Thanks for the self own. Made my day. Maui does a lot of desks. I’m not the one that has to deal with it. I enjoy his work. You have to get angry when he’s on 50% of the broadcasts. Me? I will smile knowing how angry you are every second he’s on screen.

Visited this to read about Blast. Too much unwarranted negativity here. Maui passionate about CS. Maui evokes emotion. Saw Maui. Energized crowd. Extremely talented, well spoken, insightful analysis.
