ESL Pro League Finals caster lineup

ESL have revealed a 11-man casting crew for the $48,000 ESL Pro League Winter 2014/15 Finals, taking place in ESL TV studio in Cologne, Germany on April 10-12.

ESL Pro League Winter Finals is only two days away, and we've already witnessed the group draw, but now it is time to show you the casting lineup for the event in Cologne, Germany.

From April 10-12, ESL's usual host, Sean Charles, will be directing viewers on-stream, and joining him will be five commentators, including RoomOnFire duo and ESL trio, Lauren "Pansy" Scott, Leigh "Deman" Smith and Jason Kaplan.


Devilwalk will join vENdetta and Machine at the analyst desk

The analyst desk will see the return of Alex "Machine" Richardson and Halvor "⁠vENdetta⁠" Gulestøl from ESL One Katowice, as well as one newcomer, fnatic's coach Jonatan "⁠Devilwalk⁠" Lundberg.

As usual, Janko "⁠YNk⁠" Paunović will be on the observing job for the $48,000 finals, this time joined by another former player from the Balkan, Aleksandar "⁠kassad⁠" Trifunović

pansy? gg
2015-04-08 19:53
I like her, do you?
2015-04-08 20:11
no, doesn't bring anything to the cast imo
2015-04-08 20:11
deman is 1000 times worse than pansy though
2015-04-08 20:12
No he's no, and btw he was practicing he watched all Katowice demos and casted them.
2015-04-08 20:27
I think she is just the right caster... I don't like Semmler ._. I don't know why...
2015-04-08 20:13
i dont like semmler either
2015-04-08 20:18
So who do you like???!
2015-04-08 20:31

FACEIT casters 100x better to me than the RoF guys. I respect what the RoF guess have done/do, but by now there are better people out there FOR ME PERSONALLY. I don't like Semmler's voice and his hype shit sounds really fake and I simply dislike it. Anders has his moments but overall it's kinda ehh. Not that I've ever watched any Smash things, I do love the passion of the casters in this video I came across: youtube.com/watch?v=8O-X0mXTG7s

black ddk? pls :(
2015-04-08 19:54
+1 for semmler and anders -1 for jkap +1 for devilwalk +1 for observers
2015-04-08 19:54
+1 for RoF +1 for vEndetta +1 for Devilwalk & jkap -1 Pansy - most annoying voice ever -1 Machine (who is this??)
2015-04-08 23:41
I think Machine is pretty good. If you genuinely don't know who he is, he was host for Katowice
2015-04-09 00:13
I agree that pansy has an annoying voice.
2015-04-09 17:30
for once not a single person i hate in the lineup, that's a change. thanks jesus and allah for not having cadian or thorin there.
2015-04-08 19:55
+1 thank goodness cadian isn't on that list, holy shit
2015-04-08 20:10
What's wrong with Cadian? :(
2015-04-09 05:00
something about him just rubs me the wrong way.. and i despite his accent. He's probably a nice guys and all that, but for me personally I can't stand him on a desk or as a caster x)
2015-04-09 10:43
thorin would be ok if he didnt always try to take the lead his accent turns me on tho
