Cph Games casters announced

March 5th, 2013 23:20

The Copenhagen Games organisers have revealed the names of the shoutcasters of the CS:GO tournament.

A total of 32 teams will be in action at the Danish event, which will run from March 27th to 31st, with hopes of getting their hands on a piece of the tournament's €33,000 prize purse, the second highest since CS:GO was released.

Almost all European heavyweights, like Ninjas in Pyjamas, VeryGames and Natus Vincere, will fly to the Danish capital for this event, but there will also be Curse and Quantic Gaming in representation of the United States.

It has now been revealed that the tournament will also feature some of the most famous shoutcasters in the business, including Corey Dunn, who recently commentated on the DreamHack Winter Games.

Other shoutcasters include Niels "rizc" Topp, who is currently working for fnatic, former Norwegian CS:Source player Simen "warclown" Henriksen and Lauren "pansy" Scott, who burst onto the shoutcasting business in the Call of Duty 4 scene.

Copenhagen Games 2013 shoutcasting lineup:

Norway Simen "warclown" Henriksen
Denmark Niels "rizc" Topp
United Kingdom Lauren "pansy" Scott
United States Corey Dunn

Sadly, he didn't have time - insanely tight schedule.

`no rahim ?
2013-03-06 17:47
pimpS ?
2013-03-05 23:22
Should be entertaining. Looking forward to this tournament.
2013-03-05 23:22
no joe miller, no competition
2013-03-05 23:22
competition? Between whom? Tournament attendees, streams, fanboys?
2013-03-05 23:27
i'm afraid he's too busy with LoL atm, but he's doing an epic job at it tho
2013-03-05 23:28
He really is, I watched a few games from IEM Katowice and thoroughly enjoyed them. Never played Lol, only some Dota. I now fully understand his appeal to casual CS spectators.
2013-03-06 00:16
Remove warclown add redeye..Pansy... gonna fap along with cs good for the viewers
2013-03-05 23:23
+1 warclown needs to get a haircut. he seriously looks disgusting
2013-03-05 23:23
+ a shave :D
2013-03-05 23:26
why redeye? i cant stand him, just talks nonsense
2013-03-05 23:34
2013-03-06 18:05
Warclown is actually good, maybe not the best commentator but he understands the game and competition better than most.
2013-03-06 00:30
she's actually a really good caster, id say the best of the lot unless warclown manages to get out what he's thinking in a more coherent way!
2013-03-06 18:06
remove warclown. u can add no1, just remove that dork.
2013-03-05 23:24
'u can add number 1 / no-one' ???
2013-03-05 23:28
no one
2013-03-06 00:16
still a fail tho
2013-03-06 18:31
Russia qrad 
ricz and warclown worst comentators in cs history.
2013-03-05 23:26
agreed. no knowledge about cs. its frustrating to watch their casts
2013-03-05 23:27
rofl sayin that warclown has no knowledge is total bullshit
2013-03-06 06:35
we wont. SLTV and others ftw.

2013-03-28 18:54

2013-03-05 23:29
thats the rizc's budies right ?
2013-03-05 23:30
Yes, all of them, obviously.
2013-03-05 23:31
2013-03-05 23:32
redEYE, riZC, JOE MILLAH and corey DUNN! top notch entertainment guaranteed with those guys.
2013-03-05 23:32
2013-03-06 07:48
Damn missed corey.
2013-03-05 23:33
pansy? really? shes fucking annoying..
2013-03-05 23:33
rahim > rizc
2013-03-05 23:34
hopefully warclown won't get naked this time...
2013-03-05 23:34
Where is RedEye? :( COREY DUNN FTW!!!!!!!
2013-03-05 23:36
Corey Dunn is pure class

Hopefully on ESWC again or some sooner event
2013-03-06 00:10
Yeah, I've been following almost every single one of his CS:GO shoutcasting, hopefully there will be more than just EMS matches some day. :)
2013-03-06 00:51
You wrote this very emotional.
2013-03-06 00:04
You simply cant read it without Joe Miller´s voice in your head :P
2013-03-06 06:51
haha +1 I still get goosebumps after watching that clutch.

2013-03-05 23:39
Corey Dunn is awesome, nice enough lineup. Haven't listened to rizc in a while, hopefully hes improved a little.
2013-03-05 23:41
warclown big fail !
2013-03-05 23:42

2013-03-07 00:08
haha, well if its any comfort I will be at the event saying hi to everyone. Really looking forward to meeting the caster lineup aswell, Rizc is a great guy and both him and Phoinx have been very helpful with feedback and more for our start at pugcast :)

2013-03-05 23:45

2013-03-05 23:51

2013-03-05 23:59
Venezuela Riikards 
He did? Was he on fnaticTV or what? Could you link me to the VoD?
2013-03-06 00:10

MUST love you from now on!
2013-03-06 00:23
omg nice, but how did you find that? I guess I don't understand this twitch beta layout.
2013-03-06 00:58
2013-03-06 01:25
thanks. hope that hltv.org will add his stream in streams section.
2013-03-06 13:58
He was streaming the Navi vs mouz SLTV match today! And he was awesome as always! :D
2013-03-06 07:52
lovely Rizc and Corey!
2013-03-05 23:47
red eye, joe miller and rizc would be best stream ever
2013-03-05 23:48
2013-03-05 23:50
-rizc-pansey-warcown, dunn is ok but tbh better commentators are out there. I'd rather joe miller alone than everyone else, at least find someone who plays the game to give insight.
2013-03-05 23:50
dunn "the voice of esports" is just ok? i have to disagree. I myself prefer DJwheat but dunn's stream are equally good
2013-03-06 01:11

That's insane. Joe Miller and Corey Dunn would've been a legendary duo.

What a shame. He's 10000x times better than ricz and warclown. However Corey Dunn is a good co-commentator. Redeye is also an amazing commentator. Doing his job very professional. What annoys me the most about ricz and warclown is that they always try to sound like they would be experts though their knowledge about high level CS is very limited. And they always try to hype up every standard situation with fake emotions (probably because they don't understand it). Redeye and miller on the other hand don't act like they would be super-experts and they do their job with true passion. Don't get me wrong. I'm not hating on ricz and warclown. Compared to Miller and Redeye they're still "newcomers" in that business, so I guess they will improve with time. It's a shame you guys don't speak German. I swear this guy "Knochen" is the most talented caster I've ever seen.
2013-03-06 01:31
corey and rizc are good. Warclown will be probably stupid as source casters from Mad Catz and fanboys of VG. And caster from COD is biggest joke.
2013-03-05 23:52
2013-03-05 23:56
warclown will be stupid? how so? he's an oldschool css pro player, I think he knows what he's talking about, but that COD caster is fucking annoying
2013-03-06 01:21

Too bad I would've loved to go, but I guess I've been out of the cs picture for too long :p last few events I Got.asked I always had something .(
2013-03-05 23:57
prbly didn't want kaos to pull out at the last second ;)
2013-03-06 01:58
Netherlands liQuidmoTion 
Where did that happen? And I do gigs for.Kaos regularly but doesn't mean I can't do events without m Everybody always seems to think I'm a Kaos manager or even owner, but I just played for.the org in 2k7 and casted for them since end of 2k11 I've grown fond of.them but they wouldn't mind if I went to CPH or whatever event on my own :p
2013-03-06 12:11
heh.. i only care about dunn the rest are just wannabes who honestly dont know give anything witty or insightful at all.. just a bunch of adults shouting at a screen.. of a standard 3kill round.. bring back joeM
2013-03-05 23:58
love pansy's voice

2013-03-06 02:46
Inb4 threads about boycotting the tournament because you don't have your same quadron of casters for the fifth year in the row.
2013-03-06 00:05
Corey is amazing, he's prolly the best GO caster atm. rizc and pansy are awesome too, I don't like warclown though -.-
2013-03-06 00:04
actually corey dunn is the oldest caster at esports
2013-03-06 01:13
he didnt say otherwise?? wtf ur brain :D
2013-03-06 01:25
It's not allowed to post an interesting fact anymore?

2013-03-06 01:17
joe miller and lurppis/carn/threat would be nice
2013-03-06 00:27
United Kingdom Alth 
Slurppis getting a free LAN for shoutcasting when he detests the game. No thanks. Don't wanna hear him belittling ever player he "doesn't know" again with his annoying voice.
2013-03-06 01:13
yea but he actually knows stuff about the game, while the other casters do not so much (awesome english)
2013-03-06 02:08
Warclown does, but I would much rather have threat than Lurppis. He knows about the game, but he is just so negative and miserable it makes me cringe.
2013-03-06 03:19
2013-03-06 00:27
rizc: inb4 "nice little headshot" every round
2013-03-06 00:34
CS:GO won't increase in popularity if WarClown and Pansy will cast. This is a sad situation where you need to remove them.
2013-03-06 00:38
warclown is more like a analyst, he's not the main caster there, he will be commentating stuff related tactics and such.. people seem to not realize that
2013-03-06 01:25
Korea ws0 
No RedEye or Miller? What.A.Shame.
2013-03-06 00:38
looking forward to corey dunn.. he has absolutely stunning voice
2013-03-06 00:53
Hmm, I mean a lot of these casters are good when it comes to present the rounds and comment on gameplay. However, they cant give a profound understanding and spot on analysis of the game, because they havent played CS on a professional level. You need to have one good caster and and one expert commentator who knows the game and can give the viewers some solid points in why players/teams does this and that. Someone like cArn, Threat or lurppis who can give you that extra edge in the spectator feeling, someone who actually knows what they are talking about because they have been in the same shoes as the players and knows CS on a deeper level.

Denmark Bay 
Warclown has...
2013-03-07 03:42
Would love to see Corey Dunn and warclown casting the whole tournament.
2013-03-06 01:08
corey dunN easily the best shoutcaster the past 12 years! also they should invite DJwheat and Joe miller along with carn and lurppis to complete the casting team. but oh well i cant ask for more
2013-03-06 01:10
Yeah great idea picking up Corey Dunn. I'm expecting NiP and Na'vi to meet at some point, please make sure he's casting that Niels <3
2013-03-06 01:12
Denmark rizc 
Will do.
2013-03-06 01:17
United Kingdom Alth 
One of the worst caster lineups I have seen really, probably just gonna watch GOTV. Corey/Warclown will be ok though. Anything else will be pretty horrendous.
2013-03-06 01:12
Denmark rizc 
Well, then you should tune in for the grand final, since Corey and Simen will be casting the biggest games.
2013-03-06 01:18
Thank fuck you've atleast done something right bro... No flame
2013-03-06 01:30
LOL "no flame" i lol'd but too true bro
2013-03-06 01:32
2013-03-06 06:28
Behave. ;-)
2013-03-06 18:13
Oh, didn't realise you had already decided on that stuff.
2013-03-06 03:21
Christ. rizc and Pansy are nowhere even close to being decent casters, in fact they're embarassingly bad. It's one thing not being entertaining but they actually RUIN watching games. If they want to cast games on Twitch that's up to them but stop hiring these people for events. PLEASE have GOTV available for ALL games so we don't have to shoot ourselves in the head.
2013-03-06 01:58
2013-03-06 03:22
Imo they should have gone with the dreamhack casters..
2013-03-06 02:18
Man you guys are wack. I have absolutely no problems with rizc's casting. I do wish someone like lurppis/threat/cArn would also be on the casting team.
2013-03-06 02:29
+1 what about lurppis? I like his nonsensical precision commentary alot
2013-03-06 02:39
I meant "no-nonsense"
2013-03-06 06:35
I would love Miller or Rahim but I think the choices are decent considering they can't come. edit: see my above comment too
2013-03-06 02:39
Corey Dunn is the best
2013-03-06 02:59
No Miller, No Glory
2013-03-06 04:04
2013-03-06 07:08
I don't get all the love for Corey... he provides decent analysis at best, and my God is he repetitive. A good drinking game is to take a shot every time he says "by the same token" or "at the end of the day" during a cast. Great voice, though. I haven't watched many of warclown's casts so no opinion there. I'm a big rizc fan, and I find that pansy has a good understanding of what's going on and what outcomes are most likely. Overall, a pretty good casting line-up.
2013-03-06 04:18
Miller or Rahim. I beg of you no Thorin.
2013-03-06 04:53
Good luck to all the casters :)

Pansy seems incredibly underrated, considering she primarily casts or used to cast COD she knows a good amount about the game and is a superb play-by-play commentator. Looking forward to watching this event even more.
2013-03-06 07:21
-warclown +cArn. One of the Best shoutcasting team, if not the best.
2013-03-06 07:48
Finally Dunn. And for those who are wondering why Joe is not casting... He only casts LoL obviously and ESL doesnt allow him to do anything else... true story
2013-03-06 08:17
2013-03-06 09:29
Just asking, how can you explain his last tweet? I think might be right about something, but... check this out. twitter.com/Joe_Miller/status/3090727797..
2013-03-06 12:17
not pansy ... dear god NO!
2013-03-06 08:25
because you dont understand fast english? ok i see
2013-03-06 08:38
I can't stand pansy too. It's not about her fast english, it's just the way she casts. It feels like it's fake emotion over there, sometimes she exaggerates for one kill.
2013-03-06 12:20
i agree same with rizc
2013-03-28 18:54
Netherlands washedup28YO 
Corey is always nice, except for when corey and lurppis go head to head while casting games ;P. Anyways, i really miss joe for casting such great tournaments -_-.
2013-03-06 08:28
Needs someone like Lurppis, carn or threat. Too many play by play casters.
2013-03-06 08:48
Great casting line-up rizc gl! looking forward to event more now.
2013-03-06 08:51
-pansy +professional player imo. Warclown knows alot about cs in general. Rizc is ok. Dunn is good . Overall it will be a good stream
2013-03-06 09:09
what about rights for foreign casters? will there be Knochen's german stream on 99mg.de? Because as much I like the enlgish commentators, none of them can compete with "Knochen's" excitement. The passion he and his cocasters bring to the stream is just beyond comparison. Anyway, looking forward to a great tournament with huge competition -NIP defending their legacy -NaVi going strong -Anexis' old danish lineup showing their poential -fnatic in their best form since CSGO -Rattlesnk and his team -ESC, N!, Verygames and so many more great teams. Since CS:GO the first tournament with all the top teams and as many games as needed to guarantee that only the very best progress to the playoffs.
2013-03-06 10:25
Will do my best to get Knochen and sl4m + others access to do streaming in other languages.
2013-03-06 12:21
Thanks rizc, much appreciated. btw: does anyone else reacall Pansy's first CS:GO casts? she did the I47 with machine, and although I liked her style, she had very little knowledge of CS strategies by then. haven't seen her casting since, and I'm interested in how her knowledge has improved.
2013-03-07 09:37
Pansy is very annoying, when she starts talking she cant stop it. And her voice too >:/
2013-03-06 11:36
Best commentating will always be redeye during knife rounds. Guys a legend :P
2013-03-06 12:12

TTime for.an xeqtr comeback as analyst
2013-03-06 12:15
1 good commentator and thats corey dunn rest is terrible.
2013-03-06 12:20
Damn, I would like to see Rahim :D
2013-03-06 12:23
Are you fucking serious with pancy?Im not being sexist but if you want to forcea girl shoutcaster than get someone who actually speasks normal GOD my cph excitement just went bad -.-
2013-03-06 12:35
FUCK NO. WHY PICK RIZC AGAIN??? He's the worst caster out there come on
2013-03-06 12:43
1+ ...
2013-03-06 15:06
consider it dunn!
2013-03-06 12:47
2013-03-06 12:51
Russian language? No, didnt hear...
2013-03-06 13:16
warclown is annoying. first he needs to get rid of all the facial hair. It's annoying to look at. And he only knows cs:source. When he speaks about 1.6, he sounds retarded because he doesn't understand it.
2013-03-06 13:16
decent lineup of casters
2013-03-06 13:57
luv dunn
2013-03-06 14:01
Joe Miller -> warclown & rizc
2013-03-06 14:02
rizc and correy dunn are not bad(don't know the other 2), but it would be a lot better with joe miller & redeye :D
2013-03-06 14:22
You dont know Corey dunn? Thi was him youtube.com/watch?v=bhgwxYtHUBw :)
2013-03-06 14:52

Really good :D
2013-03-06 16:43
shit line up exept from dunn shame they didn't asked joe miller and cut the pansy and the clown and add some pro player from cs 1.6 and source
2013-03-06 18:13

Can't wait to hear Dunn casting again, spoke with him in @sl4mTV's Starladder5 stream, said he will not be casting qualifiers. Said he is traveling 18 hrs, but he may cast later that night. Legendary caster for a solid event is a must see.

Corey Dunn is the man. Very happy to see his name on that list! GL to the others as well i am sure they will do great. Maybe next year they need to add a Canadian to that lineup... no hint!! ;D

J. Miller has been the best so far, this can clearly be seen on lasts seasons of IEM, he spectates exactly what we need to see and he gives emotion to the game.
