As soon i saw this i knew pimp was gonna be there. Expected Bleh to be in there too. Dreamhack always has the worst talents. Dreamhack is the only tournaments which picks the three worst desk-hosts and put them together in form of potter, pimp and bleh, but Maniac has to carry the desk for this one. I like him. Why doesnt scrawny get his casting partner launders. Is he going to solocast? Not a fan of harry & hugo. Id take scrawny and launders over them any day.
2019-11-25 16:45
Landers is trash caster bro but anyone would be better than pimp lol
2019-11-25 17:21
Yeah i didn't even read the announcement and just thought it was weird they only had 3 casters. I rather have pimp on the desk, that way you can still mute the desk segment and don't think more about him. Now he will be in 50% of the matches, so have to mute commentary as well. RIP.
2019-11-25 17:24
Yeah I won't be able to handle it either. Tbh most of the not tier 1 analysts are utter trash but he is just Insta mute every time.
2019-11-25 17:36
NOOOOOOOOOO PIMP CASTING????????? WTF MENS! ALL ECS FOR ME
2019-11-25 16:45

pimp casting is awful.. scrawny good caster but no launders :(
2019-11-25 17:08
Pimp is not that bad at casting for two reasons, he's a good player and understand the intricacies and secondly he's a bad analyst and we don't want him to do that. But Pimp should get his head out of his ass really..
2019-11-25 21:43
But he cannot fucking speak, for fucks sake! Who cares if he understands the game or not when he is literally uncomprehensible?! Maybe only you Danes would understand him, dunno :D

hehe maybe :D

2019-11-25 17:08
wtf pimp casting. I didn't even read the announcement. Until now you could escape PIMP by just muting the desk segment, now you have to mute the casters as well. SAD Are dreamhack to cheap to bring in real casters? No moses, anders, sado, etc.
2019-11-25 17:11
Imagine thinking hiring pimp as a caster is a good idea. The people behind these dreamhack events are so out of touch it's ridiculous.
