YNk, natu, Metuz join RoomOnFire

The RoomOnFire talent team, who up to now featured four members, have added a new trio - Janko "YNk" Paunović, Joona "natu" Leppänen and Vince "Metuz" Hill.

RoomOnFire started out as a trio who have appeared at many international tournaments, including Anders Blume, Auguste "Semmler" Massonnat and Halvor "⁠vENdetta⁠" Gulestøl.

Since then they have added analyst and color commentator Jason "⁠moses⁠" O'Toole, who has casted numerous Major grand finals alongside the usual duo.


YNk joins RoomOnFire

In an announcement called "Room On Fire Revitalized", the talent team welcome three new well-known figures - Janko "⁠YNk⁠" Paunović, Joona "⁠natu⁠" Leppänen and Vince "Metuz" Hill.

As the eSports industry continues to grow, we too want to evolve and transform. What was once a basic concept - a stream and some skins, designed to share Counter-Strike: Global Offensive content among friends and other like-minded eSports enthusiasts - has now been re-shaped to include new streams, in-depth vlogs, videos from events and international travel, as well as a host of competitions and raffles where you can get your hands on all kinds of merchandise.
We are happy to announce the official formation of Room On Fire Media, the next step in the evolution of Room On Fire, an organization gathering some of the most talented commentators and entertainers together under one roof. 
Furthermore, under a single banner, we want to inspire the next generation of professionals in our space by providing a platform for the development of existing and new talent through workshops, promoting good industry standards for talent, and providing some of the industry’s most enticing and exciting content.

I thought this project is long dead since they just get hired for every event anyway? Or is this trying building a monopoly buying all the best casters etc.? lmao
2016-08-31 13:31
Nice, Ynk = ResidentSleeper unfunny guy Metuz = shitty caster for tournaments that can't afford good ones natu = thinks he knows shit because he played "professionally"
2016-08-31 13:32
YNk is good , the rest suck tbh. fake anders & allu's.old coach...and that's there proffesional names
2016-08-31 13:35
ynk is the worst ever
2016-09-02 14:33
Ynk is really good, but natu's constant stuttering is super annoying
2016-08-31 15:47
ynk best analysis, doesn't need to be clown Metuz- better than Pansy and BLU, can't hire Anders and Semmler or Sadokist and HenryG for every match, Metuz and MegaMan are just behind them. Natu suck, right.

YNK- do i need to explain? really? metuz- ultra standard caster, just cant compare him against anyone from top10 imo, boring guy, no hype, doesnt have his style. So, for me this story is over after Anders and Moses, sorry guys.

Natu is a v boring caster. Not a big fan of metuz either, but I guess he's okay.
2016-08-31 15:16
YNk? really? He can't speak London at all. Everytime I hear him, I want to type voice_enable 0 or Right click on him -> Block communication.
2016-08-31 15:17
lol
2016-08-31 15:27
He can speak english very well, it's just his thick Serbian accent that's letting him down sadly. + he's got a good knowledge about the game and seems to be a very funny guy to have around (other people working with him are probably happier to have a guy making jokes). Really dunno why there's so much hate about him.
2016-08-31 15:48
I completely agree. He's the best analyst in my opinion. Pretty intelligent about the game and notices a lot more compared to some other analysts. His English is pretty good and I kinda like the accent. It makes for dry humour. The rest of the casting and analysing talent in the game seem to all like working with him too.
2016-08-31 16:45
He's fine. Metuz as well. Natu the only one I wouldn't pick.
2016-08-31 18:01
