BLAST Pro Series LA on-air team announced
RFRSH Entertainment has revealed the official broadcast team for the upcoming BLAST Pro Series event in Los Angeles.
Eefje "Sjokz" Depoortere returns to desk hosting duties after making her BLAST debut in São Paulo, being joined by four analysts, including ex-Cloud9 duo Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert and Sean "seang@res" Gares.
Tres "stunna" Saranthus will be running the show as the main host, while Frankie Ward will be on the sidelines as an interviewer and reporter.
Three casting pairs will commentate on the action, which will start on Saturday at 20:00, with all best-of-one matches being played on the first day of the event following the recent changes to the format of certain BLAST stops as part of the Front Row Experience, a series of initiatives "focussing on competitiveness, live- and viewer experience in a cut-throat entertainment format."
The top four teams of the round-robin stage will advance to the second day for the best-of-three semi-finals, which will be followed by the BLAST Stand-off and by the grand final, scheduled for 04:00.
Liquid, NRG and FaZe headline the team list for the North American event, which will be held over the weekend at the HD Buttercup building. The winner of the event will take home the grand prize of $125,000 plus ten points towards the ranking that will be used to determine the four teams attending the Global Finals, where $500,000 will be on the line.
