And I'm hyped about warowl. Been fan of this dude since the first video I saw of him wich was match casting and never understood why hes never invited to live events. I hope he succeeds and gets more casting jobs.
2019-04-07 10:06
What happened to tosspot? I watched CS in 2013/14 but stopped for a while, and tosspot disappeared when I came back.
2019-04-08 02:41
i stuck around from 2014 till now and if i remember correctly the last event tosspot did was dreamhack valencia 2015 or some iem event ...after this never seen or heard anything about him i think i heard once that he got married and got back to his normal job but i never heard an official statement

Aren't the players the talent?? You need analysts and commentators to make matches exciting as a spectacle, but come on... there isn't a whole lot of "talent" involved. They're just fans and former pros who have been paid to talk about a video game in front of a camera.

BLAST needs to adjust their format. Thoorin is right. It has too many flaws: - Only 6 teams - All invites, no qualification (only now in Spain they added a small qualification for local teams) - BO1 are a bit too random - All teams play against each other -> Some of the last matches are bound to be for nothing. BLAST is a bit too much showmanship and not enough hardcore CS. RFRESH, pls change it to BO3 play-off, single elimination with 8 teams.
2019-04-06 20:33
Although the arguments against BLAST format are valid - why would they give up their biggest asset, their uniqueness, and make tournaments (more or less) like every other tournament organizer? Obviously they have enough viewers since their Pro Series is growing.

Yes, they are having success. But I think the format will soon feel a bit thin, and they will have to adopt. But hey, I'm looking forward to the Astralis - NaVi match in a few days. BO1... What's it gonna be??
