at least launders isn't a manlet and doesn't hype up every little play, also blu talks so fucking fast and has a really whiny high pitched annoying pussy sounding voice. he is truly a terrible caster and I don't know why anyone hired him to cast. same with scrawny, terrible caster. we need more men with deeper voices casting, not pussy little manlets

John "BLU" Mullen - Commentator Welp, looks like it's the german stream for me. Or I just mute whenever that dumb manlet is speaking. It's a shame Dazed is forced to cast with such a shitty play by play caster

Blu again? Can he seriously not talk like a 12 year old Cali girl ending every single sentence on an up speak? Like he ends every single sentence as if it were a question? Like this? Like it's really annoying? Even when he says a declarative statement it still ends up sounding like a question? If Blu were to say 'I am human' it would come out "I am human?". Anyone but him, seriously. Time to brush up on my German I guess.

2017-04-12 23:59
if we were theory crafting the worst casting lineup possible, wouldn't this be #1?
2017-04-13 00:34
Only BLU and dazed are good.
