CCS casters revealed

PGL has announced the casting crew for the CS:GO Championship Series (CCS) league.

Eight of Europe's strongest sides will lock horns in the kick off season of CCS, a $110,000 hosted by Romanian organisation PGL with offline at DreamHack Bucharest, in April.

On Thursday, March 5, the closed qualifiers will kick off, with two spots in the main league being up for grabs.


TobiWan to cast CS:GO in CCS league

To take the fans through all of the action in the CCS, PGL has secured the services of Toby "TobiWan" Dawson, a well-known DoTA2 caster with multiple The International events behind him. He will be joined by Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett, who has casted several ESEA events, live from PGL's studios, in Bucharest.

The casting line-up for CCS will consist of:

  • Australia Toby "TobiWan" Dawson
  • Canada Matthew "Sadokist" Trivet

2015-03-02 13:35
TobiWan is back!
2015-03-02 13:36
Tobiwan is such a good hype caster - he gets so enthusiastic about shit it's impossible to not care about the game when he's casting.
2015-03-02 13:38
Yup! I just hope he knows the game a bit :p

same :) I wonder how the dota2 scene will react if they pick CS caster for TI for example..shame
2015-03-02 14:08
From what I understand he's tried to learn CSGO recently. Though he's done a bit of casting CSGO in the past and his knowledge isn't the best, but he's a hype caster so as long as he has a decent analyst alongside him (Say Fifflaren), he'd be great. Also he's commented below so you can ask him directly!
2015-03-02 14:35
dunno how tobi is in csgo but sadokist is great, n1
2015-03-02 13:40
Nice to hear Toby cast CSGO again =)
2015-03-02 13:41
TobiWan - I hope to see you cast more CS:GO games.
2015-03-02 13:42
Be gentle CS:GO world, and provide lube :)
2015-03-02 13:42
Tip: Either have a thick skin or do not visit these forums too often. Good luck anyways!
2015-03-02 13:56
I have a thick skin, but I remember the CSGO community in Australia, they could penetrate any shell!
2015-03-02 13:57
man I loved your SLTV casting last time, just rock on ! :) Good luck

SADOKIST <3 <3 <3 !! Man that caster deserve to be in the top, seriously I didn't see him anywhere else than ESEA LAN finals but he got the talent, his voice & reactions & the commentary.. I don't know a lot about TobiWan because I'm not old enough, but I'm sure he's a great caster since everyone vouch for him :)
2015-03-02 13:58
He was in MLG...
2015-03-02 15:30
Sadokist yes, but the main event for him was ESEA that's where he got discovered :)
2015-03-02 17:51
" I didn't see him anywhere else than ESEA LAN finals "
2015-03-02 18:17
In ESEA stream, they show face of the streamers full screen & you remember it, in MLG there is much noise & the crowd & only shows players booth etc etc.. you can just hear the voice, so how can I remember ?
2015-03-02 18:35
By hearing his voice? They also showed the casters many times.
2015-03-02 18:58
It happened 2 months ago, sorry I can't remember.

I would like to see / hear rahim casting CS again!!! RRRRRRROOOOOOOOBBBBBBAAAAAAAAN RRRRRRRROOOOOKEEEEEETJUUUUUMP
2015-03-02 14:24
indeed that guy was fun once in a while. if he would have casted csgo at the beginning when there were none or bad casters (anders at the beginning wasn't great) i think we would look at different things now:) too bad.
2015-03-02 14:37
He did..
2015-03-02 15:31
Are there any records of him casting cs:go games? I would really like to see him again xD
2015-03-02 16:43
Are you 12?
2015-03-02 15:08
Well, how should I know rahim when I'm 12 Years old? What do you think is the 89 behind my name for?
2015-03-04 12:59
I assumed it is your IQ, since you like rahim ;)
2015-03-04 14:52
hltv logic...
2015-03-04 16:10
Tobii hypeee \o/
2015-03-02 14:31
tobiwan amazing
2015-03-02 14:33
omg sadokist really? if you lost the pisto l round and you have no kills in the eco rounds, he says you need to step up when you actually didn't had a gun yet. just trash.
2015-03-02 14:39
FUCKING BESTTTTTTTTTT
2015-03-02 14:44
Awesome, been a while since tobi casted cs go... but i def enjoyed his casts~! sadokist good choice aswell, like the guy alot and seems to be one of the few casting talents in murica, although hes from Canada :rofl:
2015-03-02 14:45
Isn't there a mistake? "With offline at....."
2015-03-02 14:51

It's Dota 2, not DoTA2. Although, War3FT version was called DotA, standalone one is not a abbreviation.

Im sorry to say your not and this is a true nightmare
2015-03-03 01:24
Tobiwan Kenobi?
2015-03-02 16:01
they are both very good play-by-play but we need someone with a little bit more knowledge about the actual game..
2015-03-02 16:05
agreed, lets hope they gonna include pro players with them 2 and switch game by game.
2015-03-02 16:19

2015-03-02 16:21
Tobiwan does a good job in dota2, this could be interesting.
2015-03-02 16:14
TobiWan gogogogogo
2015-03-02 16:22
yes Tobiwan , he can hype the shit out of any game !
2015-03-02 16:31
I really liked Sadokist's color casting at ESEA. Or was it moses? Can't remember. XD
2015-03-02 16:40
NICE
2015-03-02 16:50

holy shit!!cant wait
2015-03-02 18:04
Okay here's some thoughts since I'm a huge dota 2 follower. 1. Tobi might be venturing into CSGO since he's missing out in good tournaments to cast in dota. Most prestigious tourneys go to Beyond The Summit nowadays, whereas, 2 years ago Tobi got all the best tourneys. Tobi does cast MLG though to be fair. Also he casted TI4. 2. His analytical casting is mostly horrible even in dota2 after being in the game for years now, but he is the best hype caster. I wonder how this will work out in CSGO scene. I just hope he leaves the analytical part to Sadokist and just talk about the action.
2015-03-02 19:01
Tobi is amazing!! I'm not sure if he is going to be in CS as good as he was in Dota cause he is a hype caster and sometimes theres not so much hype in CS, but will see. Bes ot luck Tobi!! Totally agree with #139

2015-03-02 20:47
RIP CCS All the matches will be muted.
2015-03-02 21:08
grats sado, you are a moving up fast
2015-03-03 02:56
2015-03-03 06:44
I'm very happy to see some international casters, not casters from our country that can encounter some miss-spellings of words in romanian :))
2015-03-03 10:54
Fuck yeah i love the pokeball analogy go Sadokist!
