ESL One Cologne 2020 on-air talent announced

ESL has revealed the broadcast lineup for the upcoming Cologne event, which has been divided into four regions.

ESL One Cologne will be held online across four regional divisions — Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania — with a combined $500,000 prize pool. The tournaments will run from August 18-30 and feature the highest value of ESL Pro Tour points.

stunna has been allocated the "quarantine cam" role for the event

In Europe and North America, the broadcast talent will split their attention between the regions in two casting trios. Lauren "Pansy" Scott, Alex "⁠Machine⁠" Richardson and Chad "⁠SPUNJ⁠" Burchill are the first trio who will talk the viewers through the action, with Harry "JustHarry" Russell, Frankie "⁠Frankie⁠" Ward and Hugo "Hugo" Byron also lending their voices to the matches.

The on-air team for Asia and Oceania is headlined by Jordan "Elfishguy" Mays, who has worked at several Big Events as a commentator, including the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals and the 2018 and 2019 IEM Sydney events, and is the host of the Geographically Challenged podcast, which covers Asian Counter-Strike.

Must be the ex's allegations she put on twitter - it is a little sad she was that jealous that she had to ruin his career.
2020-08-15 16:07
is he done with casting now ?
2020-08-15 20:19
I hope not but question is whether events want him to cast?
2020-08-15 21:06
damn man he is one of the best casters out there , perfect voice for that. What a waste :(

i can say you further, nobody like maniacs
2020-08-14 21:10
You spelled Pimp incorrectly.

Nah, at least pimp can speak straight facts. But according to maniac every team is perfect, every player is wonderful. :D

she's good at interviewing players and so but not as caster.
2020-08-15 20:21
pretty sure shes not a caster in this tournament
2020-08-15 20:27
ESL doesn't do interviews of players on cams I think , so why would they put her on the list if it's not for casting ? Blast Premier did , but it's different prod.
2020-08-15 20:33
Thanks for the insight.
2020-08-15 20:36
Will need to see first, but Harry/Hugo will probably be doing their usual thing, with Frankie giving some input every now and then.

No Sadokist, no HenryG, no Anders, no Maniac, they could've invited ddk and black ddk, even though they are rivals. Would've been much more entertaining for the viewer. No seang@res as well...

Only betas and pussies get annoyed by someones voices. It's even someone so far away and you don't know very well. They're just doing their job. Shut up already you fucking cringe bettors. Go watch Russian /gaules stream if u don't like the casters. Pussies.
