cs_summit 2 talent lineup revealed

The California-based cs_summit has announced the talent lineup for its second CS:GO tournament, which is set to kick off early next month.

With $150,000 in the prize pool, cs_summit 2 will feature eight teams clashing on February 8-11. The team list for the tournament includes the likes of SK, NIP, and the recently crowned Major champions Cloud9.

seang@res will be part of the talent in California

The on-air team for the tournament in California will include local native Jordan "⁠n0thing⁠" Gilbert as well as Major talent Sean "⁠seang@res⁠" Gares and James Bardolph. As is usual at the summit house, where the tournament atmosphere is lighthearted and upbeat, it can be expected some of the players competing will join the broadcast talent on air to commentate and analyze the action.

Joining the talent behind the scenes will be Heather "⁠sapphiRe⁠" Garozzo and David "⁠prius⁠" Kuntz, observing from the control room. The full talent roster is:

Sweden Robin "⁠Fifflaren⁠" Johansson – Commentator
United Kingdom James Bardolph – Commentator
United States Jordan "⁠n0thing⁠" Gilbert – Commentator
United States Tres "⁠stunna⁠" Saranthus – Commentator
Canada Mohan "⁠launders⁠" Govindasamy – Commentator
United States Sean "⁠seang@res⁠" Gares – Commentator

United States Heather "⁠sapphiRe⁠" Garozzo – Observer

2018-01-30 20:26
Being a commentator for a cs_summit tournament is very different than normal commentating. There's usually at least 4 people casting, and it's a very chill environment. Sean does well in a chill environment, and because there's 4 people, he doesn't have to do play-by-play, he can just do some analysis whenever he has a good point to bring up. Quiet analyst types are way better at cs_summit than other tournaments, because you can have 2 play-by-play guys doing most of the talking and still have room for 2 analysts to give the commentary more depth.
2018-01-30 20:54
BeyondTheSummit events usually get players to cast games of other players. This lineup might not even cast all the games. Say Liquid gets eliminated early - they will bring someone off Liquid to cast aswell then if the player wants to.
