A total of ten people will bring you the live streams for DreamHack Winter, two of them in Swedish, two of them in the secondary stream and a total of six people will be working on the main stream on-site.

The full casting lineup of the official stream has now been announced on DreamHack's website, and you can also find it below right here on HLTV.org, though without the introductions.

Norway Jonas "bsl" Alsaker Vikan (Host)
United States Scott "SirScoots" Smith (Co-Host)
United Kingdom Duncan "Thorin" Shields (Expert)
United States Corey "dunn" Dunn (Caster)
United Kingdom Stuart "Tosspot" Saw (Caster)
Finland Tomi "lurppis" Kovanen (Caster / Analyst)

Returning to DreamHack are Corey "dunn" Dunn from last year's Winter event, and HLTV.org's Tomi "lurppis" Kovanen, who has been part of the casting crew at the last two tournaments.

DreamHack Winter 2013 will kick off on November 28th in Jönköping, Sweden and HLTV.org will be on-site to provide you with full coverage of the $250,000 tournament.

Better if they made a vote for the community, to pick which casters they want and stuff like that. Anders and Semmler always on top, doesn't even matter that they're gay. Remove Dunn and Toss, import Anders and Semmler. ASAP.
2013-11-15 16:56
Gay? what
2013-11-15 17:35

2013-11-15 17:49

No need for bold abuse. Thank you.
2013-11-15 20:07
Dunn is one of 3 (I'm almost positive) who play the game at a high level. Maybe even play it at all.

2013-11-15 18:14
at least I have brain. See u dude;)
2013-11-15 18:15
Yeah but we are talking about CS:GO here, who has been always here in CS:GO scene casting and has done alot of work for this community not even got paid or anything, it was Anders.. imo he deserves a casting spot for his work.. and it's a matter of opinion do you like his style or not, but i like it.
2013-11-16 14:37
I see what ur saying. And i respect the guy. There are just so many stupid ppl believing a lot of crap Anders says ingame. For example when he starts talking about old 1.6 players. Unbelievable how many times i heard him say Dennis played in SK. Omfg. It was like fuckin 2 weeks or so lol.
2013-11-16 15:40
And that clearly tells us that he did indeed play for SK, you just said it yourself, doesn't matter if it was 2 weeks, 2 months or 2 years.
2013-11-16 19:35
He was saying it like he played for then for more then 2 yrs or so. He has no clue about a lot of players. He's just a noob like all the ppl who fanboy him and praise him into the sky where he doesn't belong. He's clueless, and therefore not skilled enough to be casting on DHW. kk bye
2013-11-16 20:09
damn would've liked to see you+redeye casting :DDD

Fuck Joe Miller, it's not just about him being a sell-out but his knowledge of cs is dropping to the point that he can't say much more interesting content anymore (as seen in EMS One finals) and he is just a discarded relic at this point Redeye is okay on a good day, but bad when he's creating awkward digressions or taking to Twitter to cry about the "mean wittle" cs community

2013-11-15 16:31
Agreed.
2013-11-15 16:32
I'm baffled anders got passed over for the main stream.
2013-11-15 16:38
Same, he deserves that spot.
2013-11-15 17:28
Anders is in a second league comparing him to the casters presented above.
2013-11-15 17:32
the announced caster have almost nothing to do with cs:go, but its anders' passion and we love what he does.
2013-11-15 22:43
but he isn't better than anyone on the list.
2013-11-17 13:03
He's a nice chap, but he isn't Dreamhack quality.
2013-11-15 17:43
what? he's the voice of cs. i'd much rather have thorin complaining the entire time about his sandy vagina...
2013-11-15 17:52
Depends what you mean by the voice of cs. He is a nice guy, puts a lot of effort in and produces the most casting content, I'll give him that. He's not one of the top casters though, but then again cs really doesn't have any outstanding casters when compared to other games anyway.
2013-11-15 18:02
Unless organizers of tournaments/leagues don't allow for him to stream, Anders streams every notable match, on a daily basis. He understands the meta-game involved in cs, knowledgeable of the teams/organizations, brings excitement to the game, and also has tons of fun streaming for the cs fanbase. DHW not picking anders for this stream is a slap in the face to him, his supporters and the cs community in general. Why would you not want to support the only caster who casts EVERY meaningful game?
2013-11-15 18:14
Alth has always been a shitlord, you gotta just leave him be
2013-11-15 23:29
You seem intelligent.
2013-11-15 23:37
What a cogent reply. Cheers
2013-11-16 01:03
lol +1
2013-11-15 18:03
..and Thorin and dunN are?
2013-11-15 21:36
+1
2013-11-15 22:31
Nope, they aren't. Not even close. Just a poor lineup overall, but I don't think Anders would be in my perfect setup, but he does deserve to be there more than other people.
2013-11-15 23:36
So who would you like to see? Dis gun be gooood
2013-11-15 23:46
Even though I'll get ridiculous flame incoming, I'd love to see Richard Lewis casting it, along with threat as analysis. Anders and semmler wouldn't be a bad choice either, certainly better than the current lineup. In an ideal world, TobiWan casting the event would be fantastic though.
2013-11-16 00:19
I only see 2 csgo casters in that lineup. Anders + Semmler.
2013-11-16 01:12
Why would TobiWan casting CS be a fantastic thing? I get it, he creates hype, but you can already get that from people who are at least somewhat familiar with CS.. While Gonzo would probably do an alright job, he falls into the same category as lurppis and Thorin - way too polarizing.. I mean, you won't find people who say "I won't watch this because lurppis/Thorin/Gonzo isn't casting", but you'll definitely find it if you turn it the other way around.
2013-11-16 01:15
I disagree with Gonzo falling into the lurppis/throrin category. Outside of casting, yes he has controversial opinions, but when he is casting I've never heard him be overly negative and picky of the players in game at all.
2013-11-16 01:33
But do you honestly think people who are offended by his editorials will put that aside if he's casting? The sole fact that people get so riled up for an editorial (which results in them sending him threats, DDoS attacks etc., etc.), makes me think it would be impossible for them to go into a cast with him from a neutral standpoint. It's sad, for sure - but you can't really expect much more of people like that

2013-11-16 03:29
Could be worse, but it's a disappointment considering the magnitude of the event. Being forced to listening to that over-the-top american accent for an entire event + lurppis. Way to go. Guess there will be unofficial streams though.

2013-11-15 18:07
Dunn and Tosspot, this is so awesome. Redeye and Joe couldn't come anyways because of IEM Singapur, so it is alright. In my opinion this caster lineup is the best we could get. Sad for Anders, but Dunn and Tosspot are just amazing! Can't wait for the tournament.
2013-11-15 16:30
The only one's worth watching is Dunn and tosspot. lurPiss has the most negative boring attitude and emotion a *caster* could ever have. Dreamhack caster selection fail

+1, but he's only trying bring hype. He's a good caster nonetheless :).
2013-11-15 16:51
Don't hate, he's great.
2013-11-15 17:12
Thorin? REALLY? He interrupts and talks over everybody, SOOOOOOOO annoying. -.- More Anders pls. I don't understand people's problem with Lurppis, he's not a play by play caster. He offers valuable insight and explains everything very well.
2013-11-15 16:35
I fucking hate thorin so much, will be just watching a different stream when he comes on.
2013-11-15 19:09
thorin gonna ruin all the big time matches ! he does what carn does, but more annoying and more frequent.
2013-11-15 19:35
Stuart "Tosspot" Saw (Caster) HOLY SHIT YES
2013-11-15 16:31
no anders? what. the. fuck? Boycotting DHW. or (hopefully) watching the 2nd tier games if anders is casting those.
2013-11-15 16:39
Tosspot, lovely ;D I remember him from good old Enemy Territory times.
2013-11-15 16:32
this :D
2013-11-15 17:38
its the estonian power that has reclaimed those documents long live estonia best caster ever
2013-11-15 18:07
this is pretty disappointing tbh. I hope to god Lurppis and Thorin don't cast together that would be the most irritating match to listen to.
2013-11-15 16:32
they will cast the final

1. Thorin - expert? From what I seen on the podcasts, he goes round in circles with his opinions and offers almost no real insight into anything. He asks good questions tho, I'll give him that/ 2. Corey Dunn is not a great caster and there are many better. 3. +++++Lurppis. But I love Lurppis' up-front attitude to everything. ONLY AMAZING CHOICE
2013-11-15 16:48
I dont get why Anders and Semmler arent chosen, 2 guys that would give their right arm to the csgo community and whos so passionate about csgo casting as they are ...

lol NoA * Bsl !! dat legend
2013-11-15 16:45
+1... he also brings great insight to the table, bsl+redeye are best casting combo IMO hopefully we'll get a lot of BSL + tosspot casts
2013-11-15 21:40
dunn and tosspot always been amazing, great to see them and BSL. Unfortunately there is no JoeMiller, Anders and Redeye who are some of the best on the scene. Even Pansy is getting better who actively listens and takes public feedback on board. Disgusted to see Thorin and Lurpis given the opportunity, imagine listening back to the vods listening to some monotone voices who have nothing better to do then bash on players, and provide the most negative experience I've ever listened to in casting. Not only that but you both never listen to feedback from the community (players or viewers) yet rip into other casters. Just hope for your sake you will this time and actually make people want to watch the main stream as by judging on all these comments people arn't impressed. You're both experienced so use it to your advantage positively for the biggest CS tournament there has been instead of embracing your own egos. Would have preferred to seen Threat or Heaton on the analysis desk tbh.
2013-11-15 16:45
Redeye and Joe work for ESL and both will attend IEM Singapur ;) That's not Dreamhacks fault. This caster lineup is seriously the best one. Thorin and lurppis actually have a clue about what they're talking. It's sad for Anders, but i guess he has to keep working on his casting quality ;)
2013-11-15 16:51
why? coz they seem to know what they are talking about? unlike the others who focus on a guy walking at inferno alley while the bomb is being planted at dust2 b site
2013-11-15 17:12
He's saying that their "expert" or "analytical" opinion, while knowledgeable, is overly negative and a distraction to what he (and many others according to this thread) consider enjoyable casting.
2013-11-15 18:12
I really think Anders should of got a spot here. He is a great caster. Unlucky man :(
2013-11-15 16:45
nice! can't wait to see lurppis casting!

2013-11-15 16:52
don't think it will happen, they want everybody to watch the stream, that's why they made the DH souvenir and link to twitch account stuff.
2013-11-15 16:58
To become eligible for Souvenir Packages, all you have to do is watch the live tournament matches on GOTV, or watch on Twitch with a linked Steam account. You can get started here, or navigate to the Streams tab in the Watch menu. Just enter your Twitch and Steam account information, and you’ll be ready to go. yep, there will be

2013-11-15 17:09
SirScoots won't actually cast the games. He will do something like ReDeYe did in last EMS One finals.
2013-11-15 17:14
I will never, never understand why do you guys care so much about casters. We have watched so much tournaments on HLTV, with no one commenting, only the ingame sounds, and that was amazing.
2013-11-15 16:56
Because we want to hear ingame sounds? There's no way muting casters.

It makes it more interesting than watching it on it's own and can give you a lot of information that you might not know. They can bring up interesting stats and facts, I always find the ScreaM head shot ratio interesting :) Yes I could work it out myself but if someone is doing it for me then SWEEEEEET :P
2013-11-15 17:06
like the last ems one finals right? that shit was tight
2013-11-15 22:06
cuz who wants to hear thorin cast ! i rather watch dota2 or something
2013-11-15 20:07
not really a fan of thorin shame that anders didn't get a spot, i feel like he deserves it didn't expect to see tosspot alltho im glad hes there
2013-11-15 16:57
Personally cannot stand lurppis as a caster. You get the same sense of self-righteousness and arrogance when listening to Stan Collymore talk about football. His monotone, unemotional voice is also immensely irritating.
2013-11-15 16:57
yes totally agree! he has the personality of a drywall
2013-11-15 19:31
TosspoT?????? YEEEESESESESESESESESSE finnaly hes back on big stage Gonna be so good tournament for sure so satisifed with this years caster lineup
2013-11-15 17:00
Needs more anders.
2013-11-15 17:01
The fact that DHW picked lurppis rather than Anders or Semmler just kills it
2013-11-15 17:02
No redeye ? :O He's by far the best hoster... No semmler, no anders... wtf ? Who are Tosspot, SirScoots and bsl please ?
2013-11-15 17:02
Stuart "Tosspot" Saw this is SENSATIONAL! :D youtube.com/watch?v=SEzfSBlPeJU
2013-11-15 17:02
Oooooooooo, that is simply sensational! love this guy :D
2013-11-15 17:11
Suprised but not dissapointed. Expected to see Anders up there though...
2013-11-15 17:06
This is AMAZING! Semmler would've been a good addition, but it's a great caster team nonetheless.
2013-11-15 17:06
Great to see TosspoT back, what a hero!! However, Lurppis/Thorin are two no no's :( We shall see, should still be a great event to watch :D
2013-11-15 17:03
Agree on the Lurppis part, he has a more dull personality than drywall. Watched an online game that he was co-casting, and oh boy, he constantly pointed out how 1.6 was superior and was just boring in general.
2013-11-15 17:30

um, really? 1.) Spawn's famous ninja defuse attempt in CPL Winter 2005 against NiP on cobble. Casted by Dunn. 2.) Walle's famous 1v5 against the Golden Five in WCG 2006. Casted by TosspoT. 3.) Thorin. Sandy vagina since 2001.
2013-11-15 18:17
BSL played in NoA, Catch Gamer etc. He's been a known figure for ages, long after retiring. For example he was the manager of Berlin Allianz in the CGS and was chosen as the coach for Team West in e-Stars (1.6).

How come a lot of people bash lurppis? He gives real insight as he's been on top for I don't know how many years. He is one of the few casters who actually know what's happening and can judge better the decisions teams and players make.

because lurppis hates csgo, just like 80% of the people on hltv.

2013-11-15 17:46
They are professionals compared to Anders who is a new guy. Giving a guy who is very new to the esports business a place at the biggest CS GO tournament of the year isn't a very good idea. If you don't know them, you are probably new to esports in general. Because all of those have a huge history in different parts of esports. The question is, who is Anders? He is doing a nice job from home together with semmler, but excitement is something else.
2013-11-15 17:49
Ye nice, just because I don't watch whatever games those guys come from that means im new? I can't believe you think thorin is a professional.
2013-11-15 17:55
you don't know them because you were playing on pub or some other game when these legends appeared , many years ago.
2013-11-15 17:53

Joe Miller and RedEye will always have to be there if you want the best casters :)
2013-11-15 17:55
No one will never be able to replace what JoeM did with CS commentary during 1.6.I think he would be a easy pick to be the "main" cast aswell as having Anders ofc. So the two best CS casters are not in the lineup big loss for DH will loose viewers for sure. No grade A casters at all =(
2013-11-15 17:55
Tosspot was his master :) But still sad to not see Joe at the Event. But he works for the ESL and they have a important event at the same days. Can't blame him for that. Same goes for Redeye.

2013-11-15 19:38
I wonder if they have his permission to use his voice? Anders could laugh all the way to the bank if not.

they can as they hired him to cast their tourney as far as I remember.

Lurppis and TosspoT yez!! Dont know what Thorin is doing there though. Last time I watched a stream from this guy he interrupted the co-caster all the time and basically wouldn't shut up. As if he was on amphetamines or some shit. Was hoping for Anders and Semmler to get the spot but oh well, can't get everything. Would like to know why they didn't get picked though.

Solid enough lineup. Of course sad that Joe Miller and RedEye aren't available. Dunn: Casted Spawn's famous ninja defuse against NiP CPL Winter 2005. TosspoT: Casted walle's famous 1v5 against Golden Five WCG 2006. bsl and sirscoots: Iconic names. Especially remember them from the GotFrag days. Thorin: Dickwad who never played pro. I will never value his "expert" opinion on strategy over a former professional player. Lurppis: I like him. Just needs to keep some negativity in check. I pretty much appreciate any ex-pro commentary; lurppis, carn, threat, walle, heaton, etc. Anders: Deserves a spot. Hopefully he gets the "secondary stream" that this article mentions.

2013-11-15 18:41
1st off -- lurppis and dunn are the 2 best CS GO casters (cArn and threat get honorable mentions). Glad to see them here 2nd -- Thorin isn't an expert in anything, save for loudly blowing hot air. Please stop inviting him to cast events. 3rd -- Really no Anders? What a slap in the face. He's casted almost every game there's been to cast and he doesn't get an invite to CS GO's biggest event yet. Beyond rude. 4th -- Threat needs to be invited too. He's another great analytical caster, up there with lurppis Also, it sucks that redeye and joemiller are gonna be casting IEM, but here's to hoping that after DHW, ESL comes to their senses and we see counter strike's triumphant return to IEM

Will not happen in 2014. Watch the recent Carmack interview. LoL and SC2 in the upcoming IEM. And not talking about the current one.

Take a drink every time Dunn says "there's two sides to that play" Finish your drink every time Dunn says "unfortunately [...]" after the team he's obviously rooting for loses a round. Prepare to get shitfaced
2013-11-15 18:56
:D <3 dunn used to be twice as good when he stuck to play by play and had actual enthusiasm for the game. still enjoy him enough though, but he used to be the best during tsncentral days
2013-11-15 20:07
agreed. great voice, but sometimes I think he's still unfamiliar with the new game. Always sounds confused by the autosniper and shotgun buys :P

No hate for Anders, but he has a long way to go to reach Joe Miller and redeye, although i hated joe miller for the face that he left cs that easily just for lacking viewers on fucking twitch

Wondering why you would have a caster in your crew that literally do not enjoy the game, and has officially hinted many times that he will never touch it. Leave that for someone with some passion for the game. And what's up with not giving all year around casters a chance - like Anders. He streams almost any tournament (be it FaceIT, SLTV, ESEA, ESL ...). He might not be the very best caster, but he is giving life to CS:GO and I think he deserves the spot more than anyone else on that list.

2013-11-15 19:58
This really is a fucking joke, where is anders? I really hope he gets to cast from his place so we can boycott dh's stream.

Thorin???? rly??? WP DreamHack... Ps: Thorin u better not fucking talk non stop an ruin the stream!!
2013-11-15 19:59
scootz and tosspot back to csgo, awesome! thorin is a bit much unless its in between matches for breakdowns/killing time, but dont like to see him cast. lurpiss n dunn, and bsl as host, are fine choices. too bad for anders/pansy/tobiwan/semmler theyre not here. and did redeye/JoeM not have time or werent they asked?
2013-11-15 20:03
Joe and Red are at IEM Singapur. Don't think that Tobiwan is looking forward to cast CS GO in the future. Just for fun maybe, but not serious. I know he is an awesome caster, but it isn't a surprise to not see him on the casters list in my opinion. The choice is perfect. If Anders and Semmler gets the second stream from home, it should be fine. I'm not gonna miss tosspot and dunn, that's for sure!

Why would they pick lurppis though? The guy is knowledgeable for sure but he is such a fucking drag to listen to with all that negativity. Also he obviously hates CSGO and is only in the scene for some pocketmoney that he gets from writing average HLTV news posts and occasional castings.. Very disappointed to see his name up on the list basically anyone else would've been better.

2013-11-15 20:37
Lol. That's a bold statement. Thorin is probably one of the most professional and best journlists/interviewers in the scene. The LoL-community loves him for his interviews/grilled series. The cs-community hates him because most of the community are dumb as fk.
2013-11-19 20:30
@ all those negative people on HLTV Joe Miller had to wait one year to finally cast the LoL World Finals. Kaelaris casted all WCS SC2 Europe Events + Season Finals and still wasn't invited to the gobal finals. Just two examples. Anders is a nice guy and will improve his casting skills and be sure he will get his chance one day. Remember EMS Finals, how nervous he was. And this one was just a studio tournament. I'm sure he will get the chance to cast the second stream with semmler for DHW from home. And about Thorin. The people who flame about him, do you know his work? This guy actually is esports. He knows everything about the history of CS and all other relevant esport games. You don't have to be a former pro gamer to have a clue about the game. Yes Thorin talks a lot, but I'm sure he will mainly used as analyst and co caster. And lurppis isn't negative about CS GO anymore. Of course he has his personal opinion about several things, but he is at least a guy who shares his honest opinion about everything. There is a reason why Dreamhack invited exactly those guys and not others. I'm sure this is going to be one hell of a show in two weeks.
2013-11-15 20:37
"And about Thorin. The people who flame about him, do you know his work? This guy actually is esports. He knows everything about the history of CS and all other relevant esport games." Really dude? It's not an impressive feat to have the ability of memory - almost anyone could do that with a slight bit of effort.. It's true you don't have to be a former pro to have a slight clue about the game - but if you're going to talk about the inner workings of CS, nothing beats actual experience, which is why it doesn't make sense to bring in Thorin for the "Expert" role.

2013-11-16 18:41
It's pretty obvious you've got no clue what you're talking about regarding Thorin. You can dislike his opinions and personality all you want, but he has been probably THE most knowledgeable person the scene for a LONG time.
2013-11-19 20:32
I've never said he doesn't know a lot about CS history, but that's no great feat.. knowing CS history doesn't make you THE most knowledgeable person in the scene - not even close - just look at what he said when talking about ceh9 and Ex6TeNZ when answering how the latter ranked in as a teamleader (I'll paraphrase for you; "Ex6TeNZ doesn't even reach ceh9 to his toes) .. yes, clearly words from someone who knows what the fuck is up.
2013-11-19 20:48
Let's hope so, but for somebody to be a caster in my eyes, you need to at least know how to throw a smoke somewhere in the game or kill somebody for that matter. I just hope when the times comes and there is a situation happening in the game and one of them is not going to say "can you do this in csgo?". I was watching faceit stream few days ago and one of the casters says "i wish i could see how much damage this player has dealt the last round" and he doesnt know that you can check that in graphs.
2013-11-15 23:35

Can't understand all of the guys hating on lurppis. I wanna see all of those guys do better than him at analyzing games. He's the one i'll be looking forward to watch/listen to in this tourney, alongside TosspoT. The only thing i'd maybe change is remove Thorin and add threat in there.
2013-11-15 21:37
Basically a huge fucking payday for some of the people who has been slating CSGO since its release.. Give me a fucking break. I'd rather watch and enjoy a stream commentated by a caster who has worked hard since day one and whos STILL gonna be with us after this event than someone whos just gonna do their job and leave, possibly come back when theres another well paying job.. Truly dissapointed in DHs choice.

Using ANDERS commentary in Dreamhack Steelseries CS:GO Championship Trailer... But they won´t hire him as a caster
2013-11-15 23:45
When will you people understand that just by casting a-lot of games like Anders does, does not mean you are good caster. Hes preaty Average at it and i'm modest at saying this. BSL,Lurppis ex pro cs players. Tosspot is as famous as Joemiller. Sirscoots is just another old name but he used to be decent and actually analytic. Corey dunn is some one i cannot remember. And Thorin as much as you people hate him hes the guy with all the previous information hes like the book of CS yes hes analytic point is not as good as the others but hes the person to turn about old facts and things you need to know scores/matches/transfers/upcoming players and so on. The only better lineup then this is to replace BSL with JoeMiller and let BSL just hype around hes very good at this. For the people that do not know who he is , you should just stop and watch something else hes a legend in hes own right.

Duncan "Thorin" Shields (Expert) LOL. thorin is a glorified FAN of esports. he's an expert at watching games. as long as he doesn't cast games it should be fine. i hope lurppis or somebody with a brain will be controlling the in-game camera. it's really not that hard to figure out where the action is, even without xray.

2013-11-16 04:37
Thorium is just a straight up dick head who thinks he knows everything and talks over decrying and over analyzes EVERYTHING, he also talks waaay to much and is incredibly negative. Lurpiss is nearly just as bad, always bagging the game and pointing out its flaws, he's stuck in the passed and isn't embracing CS:GO for what it is. Anders may not be as informed as the others but the passion and effort he puts into it far outweighs his flaws. And how much more exciting is it for new people to watch when you have so much energy and commitment compared to the droning of Thorin and Lurpiss +10 for Anders and possibly even Semmler
2013-11-16 05:46
agree. Although Thorin is a complete knowitall faggot (who isn't even that intelligent), i do believe Lurpiss is a legitimately good caster, although his negativity does annoy me sometimes. I do think that DHW should go for caster who actually care about csgo though, not ones who openly hate the game and will dampen the whole mood of the tournament
2013-11-16 07:19
I've never heard Lurpiss slam CS GO while casting. He also hasn't openly said anything negative towards the game in a while too. Most of it was in the first 6 months and was completely justified.
2013-11-16 12:59
nevertheless, the guy is passionless for the game, which means his casting always dampens the mood. I would prefer a caster who cares about the game even if that meant they were less experienced and even less knowledgeable.. but maybe that's just me

2013-11-16 09:44
why doos joe miller even seem a good castor to people is beyond my mind... He does not make any tactical analysis. anything deeper than an a rush or a b rush is beyond his comprehension, let along to analyze which site is weaker/strong in game based on different teams' playstyle from a omni perspective. his csgo skills retains at a pub level. pansy is more knowledgeable of the game than him. we do not need someone to yell " OMG THAT IS SUCH A NICE FRAG , HE GOT 3 KILLS." rather, i'd prefer a castor says "he got those 3 frags because his teammate set up an amazing crossfire because the terrorists has hit this same spot 3 rounds in a row." or A is a better site to attack because the Ct's have been playing a site very passively.
2013-11-16 07:29
first of all nobody claymed he is a castor...
2013-11-16 08:44
Well, I disagree. Yes, he might not have any deep insights into the game, but as a play-by-play casters he's outstanding. Give him an expert to do the analysing part, and he will actively try to involve them, ask questions or try to make them talk. I cannot stress this enough: The fact that he actually knows his role (play-by-play commentating), is a good thing. Meanwhile, some other caster like ReDeYe or Anders would just talk nonstop and give their worthless opinion about EVERYTHING. I don't want to fuckin' hear casters who know squat about the tactical aspects of the game analyse anything.
2013-11-22 03:13
Dunn, Thorin and lurppis would be better replaced by sunman, fif, or more friendly less snobbish sounding people.

Wow, fuck this i'm gonna boycott DH. Getting casters who don't give a fuck about CS in general suddenly become shout casters. Instead of getting Semmler, Anders or some other caster who put in effort since the beginning of CS:GO. Corey is a good choice but who the fuck is sirscoots007 and that other imbecile never heard of them and let them stay in his fucking obese twat country. Dreamhack is being dominated by Valve because they put money in that tournament so they have the final decisions. Fuck you Gabe you wanted a fat american as shoutcaster...
2013-11-16 11:03
- You act like Gabe made the decision in this - Neither of the American shout casters are fat - Stay biased you ignorant European cunt

In TossPoT we trust! awesome caster
2013-11-16 14:44
I don't get the hate against Lurppis or Thorin.. Lurppis has knowledge about the game that only few people on the scene have, and I actually enjoy hearing him. He isn't talking much, he just says what's right and nothing more. Thorin seems like he could be good, or he could be a disaster. At Prague Challenge he seemed so arrogant because he had more knowledge than Anders, and it annoyed me. I just hope he isn't like that at DH because with his history in the scene he has so many stories and theories about players and plays. I hope they work out, because they really have the potential to be great casters
2013-11-16 15:15
As for lurpiss, the hate is probably because he always behaves like an asshole and has posted so often about how he doesn't even like CSGO. A better question would be why people embrace a caster that doesn't like a game, yet casts it for some money, it's quite sad that people actually want him to cast. And " He isn't talking much, he just says what's right and nothing more.". rofl.
2013-11-16 16:44
He doesn't hate the game, he's just disliking parts of the game, which is fair enough, everybody feels that way. But afterall this is Counter Strike, he and everybody still have the same love wether it's 1.6, source or GO
2013-11-16 19:36

He gives so much time to this game and the community, thats why all the fuss, obviously he got alot of fans as he's pretty much the only English Broadcaster that spends so much time streaming all the different matches as he does .. im a fan myself, and i honestly think Anders deserves this spot than any of the casters on there (Not saying that, the casters are bad) - Tho i do not like Thorin or Lurrpis.. Id rather see Anders and Semmler who puts so much effort into making it an enjoyable game for others to watch. Anders can improve, but no one gives him the chance to do so - he is by far the most enjoyable caster i have encountered. Hopefully, next year, when the tournament will be even bigger! :-)

Personally I'd rather have Anders and Semmler!! Those guys work hard as hell, can always rely on them to cast a game and they work really well off of each other. Really good atmosphere each time they cast too, really look forward to it! <3 Anders & Semmler combo!!
