pls do not pair fifflaren with tosspot
2016-01-10 18:55
yer like i dont get it dude... henryG is a fantastic color caster, has really evolved and gotten super good in the last months, stepping up his pbp game too but ur wasting that and put him as a full time analyst, meanwhile fiffy is gonna cast saying 'actually' a million times and paired up with fucking tosspot probably who doesnt even know the spot names on the maps and just reads out the kill feed with fake excitement bcs he gives zero fucks about cs...
2016-01-10 20:24
fiff is bae, tosspot is the annoying one.

It's written in the Maniac story that he had already committed to StarSeries. So he will not be coaching the team there.

Sadokist and 2 people who can barely speak English :(
2016-01-10 18:58
absolutely no clue why richard lewis isnt there. hard to imagine he would deny the job seeing as nearly all the people he likes to work with are right there at the event... sadokist is a decent caster, could have him cast with henryG, let fiffy be analyst and send that useless fucker tosspot home. and we'd have the best desk host in esports.

2016-01-10 18:59
Who needs Russian casters anyway?
2016-01-10 19:01
Strike and Tafa are top tier casters. SL4M can add some hype to game too. Especially on LAN events.
2016-01-10 19:05
Top tier russian casters, doesn't matter.
2016-01-10 19:11
Its because of the Main stream. I think other countries have great Talent as well, but most People watch the Main one and Its in english so basically for everyone

Semmler has lately become a Pansy 2.0, screaming like a little bitch every time he sees a 2K happening on screen. He used to be a solid caster, I wonder what happened to him.
2016-01-10 19:24
dunno, you hear what you want to hear. I used to scream more, casting evolves with time
2016-01-10 19:33
nt Semmler
2016-01-10 19:39
i always thought he always just got better? in the beginning he sucked bcs he didnt even know the basics of cs, but over time he has learned to figure out everything about the basics and also where his limits are = where his knowledge ends and what he should leave to others to talk about.

his english got a lot better, and if he keeps working on that he'll be the best analyst in the scene (given that u describe thorin as an entertainer, not an analyst, which really is more accurate).

Good to see Smix. I wish that Fiffy was analyst rather than casting, he doesn't seem to create storylines or any excitement by entertaining the possibility of underdogs winning etc. He is a good straight analyst but can kill hype dead in the middle of a decent game while casting.
2016-01-11 08:12
Maniac coach plus analyst? Ez money imho he is still good enough to be a player for a top team...
