IEM Katowice on-air crew announced

ESL has announced the on-air crew for the upcoming IEM Katowice Major, which features 11 members.

CS:GO's next Major will see five people switch around on the analyst desk, with desk hosts Alex "Machine" Richardson and Tres "stunna" Saranthus accompanied by a trio of well-known figures and former professional players Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill, Jacob "Pimp" Winneche, and Sean "seang@res" Gares.

As previously announced by Daniel "ddk" Kapadia, he and James "JZFB" Bardolph will miss their first Major since they first commentated at one at DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca.

Vince and moses will once again cast together at the IEM Katowice Major

Anders "Anders" Blume is another notable name missing on the list, as instead Jason "moses" O'Toole will pair up with Vince "Vince" Hill, with Henry "HenryG" Greer and Matthew "Sadokist" Trivett selected as the other duo of casters.

The full talent lineup of IEM Katowice, which will span three weeks from February 13 to March 3, looks as follows:

United Kingdom O. J. Borg - Stage host

United States Tres "stunna" Saranthus - Desk host
United Kingdom Alex "Machine" Richardson - Desk host
Australia Chad "SPUNJ" Burchill - Analyst
Denmark Jacob "Pimp" Winneche - Analyst

Yes he said thing directly to you that were racist definetley wasnt just drunk one day and blurted out the n word.
2019-02-08 19:43
Oh, so being drunk justifies acts now ? Great!
2019-02-08 20:05
Im not saying its fine just saying he isnt racist for it. People lose control when theyre drunk and do stupid shit. For example say the n word on a livestream
2019-02-08 21:00
Not only that. He told the guy how to kill himself and HOW TO DO IT. While a lot of children were watching. But meh.. he was drunk.. it is all fine, right ¿
2019-02-08 21:02
Brazilian education is so fucked jesus christ i literally said it isnt right you fucking retard. Have you ever been drunk and done something stupid because your brain isnt functioning properly. It happens to everyone he just livestreamed it so it looked worse.
2019-02-08 21:09
No. I have never done that. Maybe Im not a drunk retard. "It happens to everyone". KKKKKK. Sure everyone tell to small kids to kill themselves and how to do it. Yeah. Thtats pretty ordinary. Nice brain, mr Ivory Coast.
2019-02-08 21:11
Just proving it again that your retarded im saying everyone "when theyre drunk" does say stupid shit and do stupid shit i literally said the only difference is that he was livestreaming also wheres the fucking proof there was little kids watching. You are just assuming this.
2019-02-08 21:38
Yes. He was drunk, but thats not an alibi? I dont know how law works in there, but over here being drunk is not an alibi for anything. Its pretty much the opposite.

Again im not saying its ok im just explaining why it happened and why it doesnt make him racist. Even all the other talent backed him up because they knew he wasnt racist just knew he fucked up

He had a major salary dispute with ESL, where ESL refused to pay for Thorin's travel fees, because he was dropped from the event for some reason.

2019-02-09 13:06
only 2 casting duos ok
2019-02-08 19:19
I'm surprised Scrawny and Launders aren't up there, since they are ESL talent for NA pro League, they're probably the second best combo ATM behind Matt and Henry...

Not many organizations support players with full-time contracts. Many players have to support themselves while working a job. Plus, there isn't much coverage for CS tournaments. Signify and Entity have are only 2 org I'm aware of atm. Entity added 2 serbians players - djoxic and dav - to the lineup so maybe now the scene will get some much needed exposure. Let's see.

Jesus christ do you think it is a choice or what I can admit it sounds incredibly stupid sometimes, but It is very hard to speak english with a more fluent accent when you don't speak it regularly and since they live in Denmark and speak Danish thats just the way it is. We didn't invent the language, do you care to remember that? You are literally on your period

No worries burgerbrain. Tbh expected nothing less than such a pathetically weak comeback Think if it was the other way around, and danish was the primary language and americans had their own language and would have to learn danish. It would literally be the exact same thing and we danes would be sitting here demeaning you, according to your own brilliant logic. Cleraly you are not the sharpest knife

2019-02-08 19:42
Disappointed that there are only two caster pairings - I know certain people within the community were heavily outspoken about certain talent not being hired at the Faceit major, but if they're not equally or even more outraged about there not being three full pairs then they're nothing but hypocrites. With that being said, all four casters are objectively great and in my opinion top tier. I just feel sorry for them having to cast so many games each.

Do people think Pimp is a good analyst?
2019-02-08 19:58
Guys, let me help you: Anders just had gotten a new born. Being 3 weeks away from home now cant be his wish. James is the VP of FaceIt Media. DDK is his co caster. Obviously both are not really asked by ESL. The casters are fine, with maximum of 3 Bo3 in the groups per day and 2 Bo3s in the playoffs. Whats wrong are the 3 analysts. But with YNK being coach, nothing being a player, thorin cant go to poland and Natu/Vendetta/Fiflarren are all shit analysts, there is not much left. The B-stream is organised by Joe "dont call me Joe "Joe Miller" Miller" Miller. The casters presented here wount cast the B stream.

Thanks for not inviting ddk and Bardolph, most boring caster duo ever. Sad to not see Moses and Anders casting the final, like in old times. Only you newfags think that Bardolph and DDK is the legendary caster duo. It has always been Semmler, Anders and Moses.
2019-02-09 13:36
No Anders and my boy James "yet to frag" Bardolph?K watching only Astralis matches...
