StarLadder Major on-air team revealed

StarLadder has revealed the official English language broadcast team for the upcoming Counter-Strike Major.

Tres "⁠stunna⁠" Saranthus and Alex "⁠Machine⁠" Richardson will be hosting the show throughout the event, with the latter also being part of the eight-man caster lineup.

James "⁠BanKs⁠" Banks and Sue "⁠Smix⁠" Lee will be conducting interviews, with the former making his Major debut. StarLadder went with the same trio of analysts from IEM Katowice, Chad "⁠SPUNJ⁠" Burchill, Jacob "⁠Pimp⁠" Winneche and Sean "⁠seang@res⁠" Gares.

stunna will be working as stage and desk host

Hugo Byron and Harry "JustHarry" Russell make their first appearance at a Major after helping to cover all the Berlin Minors. Other regular casters have returned, including the longtime duo of Daniel "⁠ddk⁠" Kapadia and James Bardolph, and the highly-popular Jason "⁠moses⁠" O'Toole and Anders "⁠Anders⁠" Blume combo.

Initially announced by StarLadder as a caster, Matthew "⁠Sadokist⁠" Trivett has clarified that he will be working as a desk host, confirming a Dexerto report that he was looking to split from his longtime commentary partner Henry "⁠HenryG⁠" Greer for the Major.

The StarLadder Major will kick off on Friday with the New Challengers Stage, the first of two stages that will be held at the Verti Music Hall. After the New Legends Stage, scheduled for August 28-September 1, the top eight sides will progress to the playoffs, taking place at the Mercedes-Benz Arena from September 5-8.

Below you can find the complete broadcast talent list for the StarLadder Major:

United States Tres "stunna" Saranthus - Stage Host / Desk Host

United Kingdom Alex "Machine" Richardson - Desk Host / Commentator

He apologized in public for his behaviour when he was drunk. Should 1 mistake define everything for him in the future?

Y people act like -aleksib is bad for ence. -Aleksib is the best choice. Here’s why... 1. he has the worst rating, and as a player who plays easy contact spots, early rotates, not anchoring; he should be getting more kills 2. Sergej is good, still young and getting better. Allu is the AWPer and is a veteran. Aerial is the entry fragger. xseveN is the support player and anchor. Imagine seeing 4 people on A ramp mirage and having to still stay on B because the bomb hasn't been spotted. 3. Aleksib is the IGL but if you look at ence’s vlogs, twista is the one planning the most. Its easy to see why he is overrated as he does the talking, interviews and looks good. 4. Dekay said on reddit that aleksi and allu have a bad relationship. You can even see in ence’s vlogs or when a game ends where allu fist bumps segej first, even sometimes xseveN and Aerial first.

These sadboy organizers need to stop crying over Thorin's meany tweets which I have to agree sometimes are too childish and shouldnt be there, but still, that doesnt take away from the fact that you wont find a more knowledgeable and overall professional (with little exceptions) with some of the best analytics ever person not to take advantage and bring him over. No matter how much you hate on Thorin, even though he tweets in a harsh way to dismoral the person, the point of his most tweets still remains valid, its just that he presents it in a meany, harsh way, but is still right judging whoever he's judging, but that shouldnt prevent him from attending the best tournaments out there, just quit crying and grow up! I will even go further and say Poland and Brazill should always be inviting him even after those dramas that happened before, even if he himself keeps rejecting the offer, just for the best content and advertisement of the event possible which Thorin does actually bring, only 13-17 year old kids who didnt follow the game since 2002 like I did would be sad boys bout this whole Thorin situation and non-involvement in events, but old enough old schoolers and oldschoolers who understand the reasoning for blasting at CIS back in the day etc and not only oldschoolers, would not be upset bout it and know he's still the best, and would agree that Thorin had to be part of this major and has to be part of the next huge events to come..... IMHO

Stopped reading after "I have to agree sometimes are too childish and shouldn't be there" was followed up by "you wont find a more knowledgeable and overall professional". Something doesn't add up. He is probably the least professional of the 20 most known casters/analysts because he keeps attacking and close to bullying teams/players as he wishes and cant stay objective like he should be as an analyst. And no, he is not the most knowledgeable, but I get that his kinda knowledge blows some younger guys away. Nothing to write home about tho if you're around as long as him, you won't be impressed by his knowledge. I used to like him, but after getting really "famous" he really thinks too much of himself, typical narcissist and he just doesn't cut it.

Noncontroversial opinion: While pimp's analysis is at least average, he isn't entertaining in the slightest and his thick accent makes him a pain to listen to. Thorin on the other hand is arguably one of the best analysts out there and definitely one of the most entertaining (while there of course are people who do not like his style).. Buuut.. he does like to say stupid, over the top offensive stuff from time to time.

It's quite sad that we don't get to see Thorin at the desk, as he is by far the most competent - and hilarious - analyst we have, now that Yanko has been wasting his time with tier two and three teams.

Good thing no one listens to the deskhosts or interviewers, they are pretty BAD. Analyst desk -pimp and fixed. Commentator line-up is pretty sick... Would've liked to see vendetta in there though.

Looks good and all but the real question everyone needs an answer to is if Prius is going to be spectator/in-game camera man.
