ESL has announced the broadcast team for IEM Sydney that will be held in the Qudos Bank Arena in early May.

IEM Sydney will be held on May 3-7 in Sydney, Australia, and will feature eight teams such as FaZe, Astralis and SK battling for a ~$200,000 prize pool.

anders+semmler are great casters if something sick happens - they are great at building hype and making memorable moments.

wow take it ez, i said imo. dont feel offended ;(
2017-04-19 15:05
I mean if you juxtapose Semmler and Anders with Sadokist and HenryG, HenryG and Anders are both very good analyst in terms of the on-going game, but Sado beats Semmler in every perspective. just my opinion tho
2017-04-19 16:23
i didnt feel offended at all. I dont have nothing against them. But when you have main casters that misunderstands A LOT of the plays made in the game, can't analyze the situation, and just focus to cheer up people, it's not a good thing. They miss too many things that happens in the game compare to the other casters. I preefer much more intelligent casters even without THAT MUCH excitement than only cheerleaders talking about the game. I think people should give more value to HenryG, the smartest caster on the big scene.

They used to be great, yes. Now Semmler just overhypes everything and Anders is just fat. So people who have been watching for a while now have grown tired of them. And since HenryG and Sadokist became a duo, Anders and Semmler became obsolete really.

Could have been thorin or blu which would have been worse but at least with thorin we need to listen to him for 5 mins at the end of the match and not 50 mins:/

She is sooo much better than 2014/15 Pansy She is fine imo, I agree with above, definitely better than Blu. Surprised she wasn't paired with uber though, interesting to see her duo with Moses. Also Moses PogChamp
