What's wrong with good old moses+pansy duo? And sadokist+HenryG is probably if not the best then one of the best duos! They are almost on every tier1 tournaments. They aren't there for nothing!

Why would you -ynk though? Him and spunj are the only analysts in the scene right now who actually know what shit they're talking about. Others are just like headless chickens. In fact casters like Anders and Moses could make better analysts than almost any others.

i dont mind him in tournaments that dont have faze in it. his bias levels is off the charts lately and disses teams and players left and right. justbecause he is articulate doesnt mean hes head above others. i like him when its not about faze.buy his knowledge ofplayers and teams lessened thesepast year. he just became an another thorin. follos only the top 10teams and is clueless about the rest of the scene. there are far too many good analysts on the scene already. id take maniac over him any other day. and spunj>ynk by a mile

I mean its a great one ya, BUT..... i dont see whats so special bout it other than having no names for stream b, could have at least hired Vince and Dust for B stream and secondly my main concern is where is THORIN, CARMAC? huh? Actually maybe you are right, you made it surprising cause im surprised not to see Thorin on the list :) gl everyone and lez go! :D

Pansy instead of Anders? Really? Also thanks for bringing back GOD BORG and SPUNJ. If Friberg is 'the big surprise' that the CEO tweeted about yesterday, then that's just disappointing

Can't we switch out this Wanko Character? He seems like a proud dick when he stands behind this desk, and he is sooooooooooooo fucking boring.
2018-02-24 23:43
Where the hell is anders? And where is ddK and legendary James? No offense to any of this roster, but they are at EVERY SINGLE event. GIEF ME JAAAAAAAMES!
2018-02-25 00:27
I wish Machine would be commentating over the games. For me hes one of the best at commentating

No Thorin, YES!!!!
2018-02-25 01:58
Pansy is there to equal out the equality for all the left wing cry babies. Minimal knowledge caster and plain boring.
2018-02-25 02:35
Happy that thorin doesn't get invited. Doesn't deserve it since he's been such a prick to HLTV. His banter was great for the first 2 days, then it became some weak shit and his ego was through the roof since he attended this event.
