ESL announce Cologne talent

ESL have revealed the talent lineup for the $1,000,000 Major, which features 14 members across five roles.

ESL One Cologne will mark the return of Duncan "Thorin" Shields to ESL-organized events after more than two years (since EMS One Katowice 2014).

Joining him on the analyst desk will be ESL's usual host, Alex "Machine" Richardson, as well as Janko "⁠YNk⁠" Paunović and the newest RoomOnFire addition, Jason "⁠moses⁠" O'Toole.


Mitch "UberShouts" Leslie will take over the role of a roaming host

The remainder of the ROF trio will naturally be present as commentators alongside three more duos, Henry "⁠HenryG⁠" Greer-Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett, FACEIT's Daniel "ddk" Kapadia-James "JZFB" Bardolph and ESL's Lauren "Pansy" Scott-John "BLU" Mullen.

Actually saw some vids on her yt channel and watched some Streams too. She's pretty smart. But as you mentioned, she had that problem of repeating herself a lot back then. Now it's fine. The only thing that pisses me off, is that she cares more about the bantz than the game sometimes. Overall she's better than most of casters imo.

But look at the talent at ESL, other than HenryG and BLU the rest are head and shoulders above her. She's out of her depth imo

None of ESL 'own' talent casters can do better, so dont take them to a fucking major. But thats my opinion and unfortunately, would never happen as business wise it wouldnt make sense

A few days before EMS One Katowice, Thorin made some comments on Poland that ESL considered racist. These comments were made during the podcast Unfiltered, specifically the one linked below. youtu.be/R4wVBu7n6aw?t=6m40s In response, ReDeYe posted the following statement on Reddit: Duncan ‘Thorin’ Shields has been removed from the analyst/commentary position for the EMS One Katowice broadcast due to his comments about Poland that he made on a recent podcast ‘Unfiltered’. ESL does not stand by or tolerate acts of racism, xenophobia or other forms of discrimination and does not wish to be associated or employ those who make any such comments. We are deeply upset that a long time member of the esports community would display such ignorance and make highly inappropriate comments about an entire nation. Thorin’s tirade has offended not only the live audience of the show he was hired to work on, but the entire Polish production team that he was going to be a part of. I have spoken to Thorin directly this morning. It has been made clear to him that his comments were totally unacceptable and inconsistent with ESL’s ethos. It is unfortunate that we have to do this on the first day of the EMS One Katowice show, but we are hard at work to replace Thorin on the show and rest assured are determined to bring a great show regardless.

They had a meeting with ESL more than a month ago about making up. We didn't know if they did until now :D

This UberShouts guy is really bad at least get OJBorg or even Puckett now that EL is on a break for the major, heck even Pala is a better choice. (Scoots did a good job as a roaming host at DH Cluj, sadly he has said that he wont work with ESL anymore tho) Everything else is fine I guess, personally I'm not a fan of Machine and Blu, but I can live with this talent lineup, probably the best ESL talent lineup for CS since Globaloffensive has been a thing. Would love to have seen Metuz in here over Blu but since ESEA has hired Blu I can see why ESL has gone with him instead.

He didn't go into why but he announced it on Twitter a while ago: twitter.com/SirScoots/status/71413407112.. Yeah, Uber is just bad, but it's expected since they have forced him onto us during every ESL event leading up to the major in the last months.

she's so shit at what she does as well. Metuz is actually good at what he does and knows something about the game whereas pansy talks as if she knows nothing about it. so annoying to hear her cast

Fucking ubershouts? where is OJ Borg? Machine as analyst? idk it's like they just squeezed them in because they're signed with ESL. Also - Gonna be muting the matches that Pansy and Blu cast. Blu with a decent caster is fucking cancer, Pansy is alright but them together? yeah naaahh would rather listen to music. Metuz pls

OJ Borg is hosting/casting Tour De France, Pansy and BLU together ain't the best combination (She works wonders with Anders), so hopefully they mix it up.

That's pretty cool for OJ I guess Pansy and Blu is just a horrible duo, Blu seems to not know anything about the game and pansy is fine tbh just drags things sometimes. Her working with others is fine by me but with Blu it can become cancer.

LoL, I see some ppl started saying: "if ESL were able to forgive Thorin after 2 years of banning him from ESL majors, then Valve should also forgive iBP's throwing scandal and finally unban them all after those two years" :) Wooohoooo hype! Lez go! :D

Thorin at an ESL organised event? Very weird...
2016-06-28 19:17
Holy shit that's a sick line up! I'd like to have -Pansy +seangares or +spunj actually and it would be really good. Or at least give her the second casting role, when she's the main caster she's just saying the same shit over and over again, overhyping stuff, giving bad calls and stuff like that. Aswell as she keeps talking shit when a round is on its way.
2016-06-28 19:21
I'm just happy that there's JZFB & DDK

Kinda sad for Fiffy:( wanted to see him ad an analyst and also for OJBorg he is a good host overall But im glad for Blu. His rap battles against Sadokist will be amazing to watch and hear lol

Same thoughts. I think the Uber guy did a pretty good job at Major Quals, but OJ Borg can bring much more, especially on the big stage. Also happy for Blu aswell. Kinda strange that he gets so much hate, although I find him very pleasant to listen to .
2016-06-28 19:40
Tier 1: Anders+Semmler Tier 2: James+DDK Tier 2.5: HenryG & Sadokist Tier 3: Blu+Panzy ANALyzers are perfect too bad lurps can't attend. Glad fiffy isn't there.

I like James + DDK over Anders & Semmler, James and Dan are just so perfect together. I'd like Richard to be there because Richard & Thorin make for great banter. I'm happy Fif isnt there because I honestly dislike the guy alot. No idea why people like him so much. EDIT: THANK GOD Natu isn't there. He makes me want to kill myself every time he casts.

2 replies
they're rally good although the "Dan!" - "James" meme is getting old. I can live without Richard but he can be useful as you said in conjunction with Thoorin. Fiffy is redundant, there's nothing special he brings to the table. Other times his analysis is way off in between his stutter-y sentences. Also heavily swedish biased.
2016-06-28 22:08
1 reply
Yup, although I love James & DDK, to me it doesn't get old, but I can understand why others don't like it. Anyway, I think it's going to be a good major, although kind of sad Cloud 9 isn't there. ;-;
