ECS Season 5 Finals on-air team announced

FACEIT has announced the complete English language broadcast team for the ECS Season 5 Finals.

Matthew "⁠Sadokist⁠" Trivett headlines the talent line-up for the event, with the Canadian caster returning to action from a six-week hiatus following a controversial livestream session.

He will be joined by several other popular figures who make another appearance at an ECS event, including desk host Alex "Machine" Richardson, analysts Tomi "⁠lurppis⁠" Kovanen and Jordan "⁠n0thing⁠" Gilbert, and casting duo James Bardolph and Daniel "ddk" Kapadia.

Sadokist will be commentating on the action at the ECS Finals

Adam "Dinko" Hawthorne and Alexander "Hawka" Hawkins, the winners of the Community Caster Challenge, are also part of the official talent line-up and, according to FACEIT, " will commentate during the finals."

"The ECS Finals are one of the major highlights in the CS:GO calendar and it’s always an honour to be part of it," Bardolph said.

"The talent lineup for Season 5 is excellent as always, I’ve known each of the talent team personally and professionally for years and I’m so thrilled to have everyone back together at Wembley."

That's because all teams have revenue sharing with Faceit. So prizepool is less relevant. And that was announced back in 2016...
2018-05-19 12:33
90k go to regular season teams, only 660 in finals. as i said, it's been like that since season 2 :)

And to be fair, he regretted and apologized.. he was drunk and shit even though i think it's not an excuse.

So ironic how so many white nerdy social justice warrior kids got so offended by matt's controversial stream, and then in the end matt is hired by Bardolph, who is black, and seemingly not really offended. Great to see him back, and great to see faceit hosting a major.
