Meh, you can’t deny the criticism is spot on. Hiring fucking daps as an analyst at a major over all the “t1” talent there is is absolutely ludicrous, and the entire thing about the fucking chickien handler being paid £500 a day at the expense of hiring better people for the desk is absolutely an affront to the concept of a major, being the Super Bowl/ champions league final/ NBA finals of CSGO. You would never hire such low level people for that, even if you disliked the people better than them on a personal level.
2018-11-15 22:47
expected from UK major and UK production on major lmao, shit major ever :0 chicken funny atleast they are predict all teams who lost game

How can you even say “expected from UK” when I just wrote a whole paragraph shitting on the major in the UK. It’s the fact it’s a major, it’s not meant to be all jokes and banter, I took ESL One Cologne way more seriously than the face it major, just all gimmicks.
2018-11-15 23:06
imo Katowice 2015 was ezbesttest
2018-11-15 23:10
Yeah the 2014/15 ESL majors were so good, actually felt like a world championship. Same with eleague.
2018-11-16 01:42

yeah but it's just weird having 2 Tier 1.5/2 analysts and a caster at the desk, while 2 of the industry's best are missing launders on the desk would've made more sense to me

Why do you always invite pimp? He's obviously loving liquid and hating mouz on the stream. Invite banter king Thoorin.

where is spunJ?
2018-11-15 19:13
this blows my mind how they have a t1 event without god spunJ
2018-11-15 20:14
there is no better analyst in the world than spunj, but also i am happy that he has time off to relax and recharge. thats what these guys also need, little less traveling and more relax and vacation.
2018-11-16 08:29
i mean we dont know if he declined or wasnt even invited. sure he can use some spare time like we all, but its still a shame for us vierwers to see less entertaining people

j. bardolphe can't stand thorin, spunJ and Maniac, and because it's a faceit event he decides
2018-11-17 19:07
why cant he stand spunj or maniac? i understand thorin, he is a dodgy cunt.

+1 spunJ is literally god tier talent compared to the rest of the mortals on the desk.
2018-11-21 04:20
everytime he talks about the match, some rounds.. the details and everything is just a joy to listen. He actually makes it educational to listen about what he says about the match and makes me adapt those things in my next game.

I usually on watch the mid game desk sessions when spunJ is there since he’s usually the most insightful
