ESL Pro League S3 Finals talent out

ESL have announced the broadcast talent for the $512,000 Pro League Season 3 Finals taking place in Leicester and London from May 11-15.

The ESL Pro League Season 3 Finals are bringing a whopping $512,000 in prize money to the fore as eight teams will go head-to-head over four days in the middle of May to determine who will get the brunt of the prize ($200,000).

After having already announced the group draw, tournament format, and schedule last week, ESL have now filled in the last piece of the puzzle by announcing the official broadcast talent for the event, whose location will be split between Leicester (group stage) and London (playoffs) in the United Kingdom.


All three of these gents are on the ESL Pro League Season 3 talent list

The list sees the return of the usual suspects such as Anders Blume, Auguste "Semmler" Massonnat, Mathew "Sadokist" Trivett, Henry "HenryG" Greer, and others, as well as a few more newfound inclusions such as putting Janko "YNk" Paunović on the desk and showcasing up-and-comer John "Blu" Mullen. The full list can be found below:

United Kingdom O.J. Borg - Host

United Kingdom Alex "Machine" Richardson - Desk Host

Serbia Janko "YNk" Paunović - Analyst

Denmark Anders Blume - Caster
United States Auguste "Semmler" Massonnat - Caster
Canada Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett - Caster
United Kingdom Henry "HenryG" Greer - Caster
United Kingdom Lauren "Pansy" Scott - Caster
United States Jason "moses" O'Toole - Caster
United States John "Blu" Mullen - Caster

United States Heather "sapphiRe" Garozzo - Observer
United Kingdom Alex Rush - Observer 

The Pro League Season 3 Finals will go live on May 11 at 14:00 in the ESL studio in Leicester and we will first see OpTic take on Astralis in Group A.

2016-05-05 19:26
indeed. She may not be my favorite caster (that's Anders), but she isn't bad. All the hate is completely over the top.
2016-05-05 19:37
Actually, she is worse than dab00 :/ But she is part of esl and a woman

Never forgot abt him :/ Been his fan since I first saw him at dreamhack invitational in 2014 March. He didnt attend the last few events he was invited to due to being at a high post at twitch so he has lots of work to do.
2016-05-05 19:16

ESL "talent" WutFace
2016-05-05 19:25
We are getting there, the one position that can be improved is the Desk Host. Especially now that RL and Thorin are not a "package deal" anymore. I mean talent like RL, Sir Scoots and ReDeYe are available and you still went with Machine, what gives?
2016-05-05 19:28
Machine best!
2016-05-05 19:29
Machine works for esl
2016-05-05 19:58
So do, Deman, Kaplan and Joe Miller. You don't see them in the talent list.
2016-05-05 20:00
Joe works more of a managerial role, Kaplan is fucking horrendous, and Deman has hopefully ran off back to LoL with his tail between his legs.
2016-05-05 20:24
I know, but still it doesn't mean that they have to use all of their staff for all tournaments. It's not like there aren't other games that ESL cover.

YNK ResidentSleeper
2016-05-05 19:28
Please stop getting YNK He is not a good analyst, has never been, will never become one. Just ask Olofmeister to analyse aslong he cannot play.
2016-05-05 19:29
He is probably the best analyst in the game, just cuz you don't like him or his English doesn't mean that he is not good rofl, the way the dude breaks down individual plays/rounds is something that has been missing from the analyst disk and his views are a fresh addition to any analyst desk.

It always feels like he struggles with his english. He speaks not too bad, but i just cant listen to him.

2016-05-05 21:06
-OJ +Redeye -Machine +RL +Thorin Best ESEA LAN Finals ever.
2016-05-05 21:56
have to agree with this but i like machine as host tbh

Dude u lierrrrrr, i said the truth, accept!
2016-05-05 22:03
Thorin = besterest analyst
2016-05-05 22:06
BTW Thorin and Rlewis are going to be there. Thorin said it on Richard's last episode of 'by the numbers'. ESL wanted to mend fences because there was a reddit appreciation thread trying to get Thorin and Rlewis to be at all majors as a duo.
2016-05-06 15:42
I remember seeing a Twitter conversation between a higher-up at ESL and Thorin awhile back so this doesn't surprise me! I hope it comes true because those two really do crazy amounts of work for the community, even though they come off as a little brash sometimes.
2016-05-06 20:36
I dont watch matches where Pansy is casting, no matter whos playing. I find it that unbearable, she literally struggles at all aspects of competitive CSGO and continuously says moronic things. :-( Hope she gets better tbh
2016-05-05 22:02
Is it because she is a woman?
2016-05-06 10:03

Only one dedicated analyst? I mean, I know Anders, Sado, and Moses are all good on the desk, but only one permanent analyst still seems just a little short..
2016-05-06 01:16
No thorin. Fuck you ESL. Is it thorins fault? Well fuck ESL still. Thorin is a must-have in any LAN. Idiots.

2016-05-06 05:55
Henry G gets way too little respect. Then again what do you expect from a community that likes to watch the likes of Rahim and all other mentalists. Anders and Moses also stick to the point. Good stuff.
2016-05-06 06:23

HenryG / moses / Anders / Semmler / JZFB / ddk are the best casters you can get. No one else is close to how good they are.
2016-05-06 09:52
+1 Semmler is imo annoying sometimes, but that's me being subjective. Agree that these ppl understand the game the best and there is no one even close.

Big Talent if Pansy wouldn't be there. She is a very good caster espacially since he is a woman but I think he has no chance against these Tier1 Caster like Anders, Semmler, Henry, Sadokist, Moses!
