RC EMS One finals casters announced

April 9th, 2013 16:28

The Electronic Sports League (ESL) has announced the names of the CS:GO shoutcasters of this weekend's RaidCall EMS One finals.

The LAN finals of the first season of RaidCall EMS One will take place this weekend inside the ESL TV's studio in Cologne, Germany, with eight teams vying for the first prize of $12,000.

The shoutcasting lineup for the tournament has now been unveiled, and much to everyone's surprise, Joe Miller is not there, as he is unavailable this weekend.

As such, Paul "ReDeYe" Chaloner will be joined by Simen "warclown" Henriksen and Lauren "pansy" Scott, both of whom casted some games at Copenhagen Games.

RC EMS One Finals shoutcasting lineup:

United Kingdom Paul "ReDeYe" Chaloner
Norway Simen "warclown" Henriksen
United Kingdom Lauren "pansy" Scott

HLTV.org will be in Cologne to cover the EMS One finals on site, so stay tuned to our website for all the information about the German event.

oh god..

YES! Pansy is there so as ReDeYe but where the fuck is JOE!?

THAT WOULD BE THE MOST AMAZING TRIO EVER!!!!! Pansy, jOE and ReDeYe GOD PLz make this happen!
2013-04-10 13:47
just my words
2013-04-10 16:36
REDEYE!!! <333 :D
2013-04-09 16:29
+1 THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS close between him and miller as far as the casting i just think redeye has a better voice
2013-04-09 21:03
2013-04-09 16:29
At least we will have redeye :)
2013-04-09 16:30
The event is horrible.
2013-04-09 16:31
Have you got a TARDIS or something, as you seem to know the future?
2013-04-09 16:35
The bracket is a joke. If you loose one match you can go home and the organisation wasted X €. Talking about $39.000 price pool and the first gets $12.000. If N!faculty or Lemondogs win they're automatically top4 while ESC or NiP, if they loose are 5-8th and you can't end up better than them even though n!faculty is a joke on LAN.
2013-04-09 16:43
It's single elim best of 3 is it not? The draw for the bracket was also done randomly live on stream live for teams to see.
2013-04-09 17:13
There was something that some of the worse teams were tied and so they counted round difference again to get a 1st place and so ESC ended up versus NiP I think because Lemondogs or nfaculty ended up first the group. Quite funny, isn't it? I don't understand why tournaments still use shitty formats. The CPH Games format for instance is WAY, WAY better.
2013-04-09 17:32
The organisation wasted nothing esl payed the arrival :) if you dont know stop flame
2013-04-09 21:06
Why are you even commenting. Feeling butthurt once again? rofl you're so mad because you suck.

Was already booked on the LCS for LoL when the dates for RC EMS One were decided. Would have loved to do it after an entire season of the online. Either way, Paul, Pansy and WC will do a great job!

Sad story
2013-04-09 16:58
at least we know were your heart is now Joe.. sad day for us cs fans..
2013-04-09 17:08
IT has nothing to do with what I like most. I was simply booked for the LCS before EMS finals were planned...
2013-04-09 21:08
Sadd :( The best casting duo ever :(
2013-04-09 17:30
LCS is every weekend man, and EMS One Finals is every season, think about that.

i won't watch anything with these horrible casters (expect for redeye)
2013-04-10 16:39
whats about joe miller?

pansy really
2013-04-09 16:33
I don't know, man. I just don't know...
2013-04-09 18:24
Unfortunate not to see JoeM :( But good to see warclown reunited with ReDeYe again :D PansY also :D
2013-04-09 16:33
Yeah, they can do such hardcore things together, If you know what I mean:D
2013-04-09 16:36

maybe this time redeye will go naked =))
2013-04-09 16:46
Going to be exciting :)

Why are you hating on Pansy?
2013-04-09 16:36
This is the CS community, you already forgot?
2013-04-09 19:14
Best casting duo EU = ReDeYe & Joe Miller
2013-04-09 16:36
But not in cs. Joe's knowledge is pretty low in cs:go tbh.
2013-04-09 16:38
But he is still one of the best casters, you don't need a good knowledge* you just need to have a godlike voice and be funny. *Ofcourse 0 knowledge isn't useful
2013-04-09 16:43
still better than warclown which said : "if you win pistol round on train you will win 15-0 the first half" ROFL , and some other shit i heard in that same stream but that was the most shittiest quote i ever heard
2013-04-09 16:44
Can't say that he hasn't said that, but he has a lot of knowledge of counterstrike in general. Seeing as he has been a pro player in CSS and actually dominated the scene for a little while with reason gaming (with fetish & jiMMy). I have watched him cast a lot. And he knows his shit. Maybe there's a derp comment here and then, and i have also been weirded out by some comments from ReDeye himself. I think the best analytical caster on the scene is Corey Dunn, but not the best caster tho.
2013-04-10 10:00
Germany JoeM 
Dont agree with you actually. I think my knowledge in GO is better than it was in 1.6 :)
2013-04-09 16:51
At the first raidcall cup, there was a match on de_train and you didn't really know where is the bombsite. But yeah you are doing really well, maybe you should take cs a bit more seriously. I hope you will join them next time btw:)
2013-04-09 19:24
Theres barely any caster that give you any insight while casting. They usually just cast whatever they see through auto director and hype it up with their voices. A caster such as lurppis would probably give you way more information about the tactics and why they decide this and that.
2013-04-09 18:01
Denmark rizc 
Sad not to see Joe there, but awesome to see Simen and Lauren given more gigs! Stream will be awesome and i will be tuning in for sure!
2013-04-09 16:38
if the stream will be "awesome" as you say , it will be like that only because there is redeye. nothing more to add.
2013-04-09 16:43
Denmark rizc 
If you dislike Pansy and Warclown as casters, that is your opinion. I have a different one.
2013-04-09 16:49
Asskissin over 9000 haha
2013-04-09 18:38
Denmark rizc 
They're my colleagues and friends, please explain to me how i am "asskissin".
2013-04-09 19:11
Its not impossible to asskiss a colleague or a friend for that matter. And do u really feel "deep down inside" that pansy is a good caster? 0 knowledge of the game, I mean really below freezing... I can cast LoL with an enthousiastic voice and shouts etc, but when I understand nothing thats happening... doesnt make.me a good caster does it :) X
2013-04-09 19:46
Although, knowing something about the game and having an annoying voice doesn't help as well. I like pansy more than warclown, but obviously Joe + ReDeYe is always the best case scenario.
2013-04-09 20:08
you have kinda just summed up the fact you don't like play by play casters. which is fine just pretty typical.
2013-04-09 22:12
I like how JoeM and redeye cast, but having 2 caster is not ideal in my book. I would like to see a caster + some ex pro (threat, carn, heaton etc.) If u would be casting with threat for example it would by ideal, you do the play by play and he does the tavtival analysis. But when u and eg rizc teamup ur missing a vital thing at the analysis part imo. Im not hating on u btw, u got a lovely voice and choose the correct words imo :) Best matchup would be, you+warclown or redeye+warclown. And let warclown focus on the tactical aspect and not cast like he does with jay atkins for example :) Hope I made my point clear
2013-04-10 00:34
I know Niels, and he's not an "asskisser" :)Please go elsewhere and sodomize yourself while you're at it.
2013-04-10 10:02
Haha, madDane #2
2013-04-10 10:16
Stupid dutch is stupid
2013-04-10 10:36
Hahaha, ur funny:)
2013-04-10 13:06
we dont like you rizc! i can't see your face in my screen!!! even cant hear your voice. redeye is the best caster by far, then joe! the other casters are like circle ameba with mouth.
2013-04-09 22:13
I like Pansy as a caster, I think she has an intuitive grasp of casting video games that some people lack. My only pet peeve with her is that when others talk, she can tend to say "uh-huh" and "yeah" too much as an automated nervous response, whereas picking your moments of speech might be better. Warclown has the mind for cs, but his accent makes it sound like he's drowning in a fishtank when he talks.
2013-04-09 16:40
he's got mind for cs :D ROFL
2013-04-09 16:46
"but his accent makes it sound like he's drowning in a fishtank when he talks." hahahah!
2013-04-09 16:50
noted from the games in copenhagen : )
2013-04-09 17:58
I know, maybe it's a nervous habit and hard to change, but it's kind of a life pet peeve of mine in social interaction :) Don't mind the negative comments btw, hltv.org commentators are surprisingly conservative: if they didn't come to like it long ago, it's bad.
2013-04-09 18:49
it wont be there for this event dont worry : ) ah people are people, some like the way i cast some don't. Most seem to just dislike play by play casters... bar the ones who have been here for 10+ years.
2013-04-09 22:14
One suggestion, Friberg is pronounced as 'fry'berg and not 'free'berg. Thanks :) BTW, your pbp cast was amazing at CPH with Corey dunn at side! would be amazing to see you with Red eye :)
2013-04-10 03:35
Actually she is pronouncing it right since "freeberg" is the correct way of saying it in swedish. I totally respect that you want her to speak in a fully brittish accent but as I said, she is saying it all correctly. Friberg is pronounced "freebaerj" (from brittish accent). Thanks :)
2013-04-10 11:21
if i do pronounce anything awfully wrong which is rather likely do let me know
2013-04-10 19:38
What I was trying to point out (my post was kinda messy) was that you are pronouncing it perfectly right =)
2013-04-11 12:09
thank you i really did enjoy casting with Corey he is stupidly awesome at casting, i will try and make sure i get the names right before as well for this event, speak to warclown to make sure that those crazy swedish names are coming out right :D
2013-04-10 19:39
Your comment is good.
2013-04-09 18:26
Pansy? Really? The one who cannot spell 'pasha'?
2013-04-09 16:46
rahim would boost +10k viewers,,if he where invited :(
2013-04-09 16:48
rahim onliner
2013-04-09 18:29
pansy and redeye is NICE! warclown to much bla bla bla...
2013-04-09 16:51
dont like pansy :/
2013-04-09 16:55
2013-04-09 18:27
dis gonna b good!
2013-04-09 16:55
too bad joeM couldnt be there!! :/ at least redeye is a solid caster and that pansy chick aint bad at all. either way i would prefer joe miller , corey dunn , midway and a couple of pro gamers not attending the event to help with the analysis
2013-04-09 17:01
no joe no fun... redeye is amazing warclown at wienna horrible but nowdays much better but sometime really stupid talking and pansy is bad at CPH games she scream on every frag... I remember somebody kill enemy with granate and her reaction OMG its absolutly amazing :D and screaming :D
2013-04-09 17:04
-warclown and this would be good!
2013-04-09 17:06
-warclown +steel
2013-04-09 17:09
I'd love that!
2013-04-09 20:11
the best lineup would be: Joe Miller, ReDeYe and lurppis as casters, and obviously Rahim as the in-depth analyser of the games at pauses
2013-04-09 17:10
again the clown
2013-04-09 17:13
United States nytz 
no Joe Miller? q.q
2013-04-09 17:18
Only ReDeYE dont care about the other two
2013-04-09 17:25
This means we won't see GO at IEM.
2013-04-09 17:26
-warclown +any progamer or rizc
2013-04-09 17:33
damn,, no wisecunt
2013-04-09 17:45
if Joe is no possible pls add corey_dunn
2013-04-09 17:51
ReDeYe nice:)
2013-04-09 17:52
2013-04-09 17:55
Awesome :D
2013-04-09 17:53
Belgium Monu 
the lack of game knowledge with alot of casters disturbs me alot, but then again its good that they are doing an effort, couldnt do it better myself
2013-04-09 17:53
Lack of knowledge is one thing, but what's even more annoying is when they PRETEND to know something, which they obviously have no clue about!
2013-04-09 17:57
2013-04-09 17:54
Would've loved to see Redeye and JoeM, but oh well :) I'm not exactly fascinated by wc though, he's plain and dull imo.
2013-04-09 17:56
Europe eler 
no Joe :(
2013-04-09 18:04
Germany Nik- 
no ty esl
2013-04-09 18:12
WHAT DA FUCK, You gotta be kiddin me
2013-04-09 18:15
Should have hired mOE.
2013-04-09 18:17
Looking forward to this. Seems like you thunderstruck fanboys have to cope with "bad decisions" until they can clone Joe Miller into a quartet of casters.
2013-04-09 18:20
Oh come on. For once we could have two great casters together and not one of these morrons. Really bad choice imo, but thank god they didn't pick rizc
2013-04-09 18:22
2013-04-09 18:29
United Kingdom smoggy:. 
Sweet cast line up xD. It would be sweet to see WarOwl given a chance to do a live cast.
2013-04-09 18:26
pansy? again? at least redeye is there
2013-04-09 18:52
I have no problem with pansy rizc warclown or any of the casters who receive so much hate. They do their job fine. I do wish retired top players would be added to casting team. Carn, Heaton, walle, threat, lurrppis - I've always liked matches that these guys casted.
2013-04-09 19:25
carn would be great at casting, but his english just isnt good enough, it gets annoying if you have to listen to him for too long. its really weird too since he lives(or atleast did) in England
2013-04-09 20:12
Threat has been casting quite often but what I don't like about him is that he was "forced" to be the main caster at fragbite (only saw one game), which is something that obviously does not fit him as well as the co-caster who analyzes the round afterwards.
2013-04-09 20:14
where's Joe Miller ?
2013-04-09 20:01
Good stuff! Looking forward to the event!
2013-04-09 20:11
Oh when will they stop with calling pansy for the events ... Lets be honest , they are calling ONLY bcus shes a girl ,she has no shoutcasting skill at all and she shows no progression of getting any better event after event and they STILL call her ...
2013-04-09 20:21
2013-04-09 20:45
you go gurl
2013-04-09 21:40
Haters gonna hate. Your doing great!
2013-04-10 03:17
2013-04-09 23:51
I miss Joe xD.. good cast though
2013-04-09 21:01
Denmark kaspeRztw 
Ryan Dunn ?!?!?!
2013-04-09 21:17
Unless he's crossing over from the otherside that's going to be bit of a tricky one
2013-04-10 03:21
Why no Miller insted of Pansy? :O
2013-04-09 21:30
I think Pansy and Warlcown are great casters. Beats watching that dull ingame sound gotv anyday to be honest.
2013-04-10 04:49
rahim or gtfo
2013-04-10 05:00
I also agree with what someone above said about tournament format. 39k but only 12k for winner? And why no double elimination?
2013-04-10 06:26
We want mOE!!!!!! :)
