BLAST Premier Global Final talent announced

The broadcast will feature BLAST's usual lineup of on-air talent.

The organizers of BLAST Premier Global Final have announced the on-air team who will bring you the action at the $1 million tournament, featuring their favorite desk-commentator-interviewer combination.

James "⁠BanKs⁠" Banks will lead the analysis as usual, and he will be accompanied by Mathieu "⁠Maniac⁠" Quiquerez and Jacob "⁠Pimp⁠" Winneche on the desk, while Freya Spiers will conduct interviews with the teams.

BanKs will host the desk alongside Maniac and Pimp

Two popular caster duos will take up the commentators' post at the first top-tier tournament of 2021: Conner "⁠Scrawny⁠" Girvan and Mohan "⁠launders⁠" Govindasamy and Anders "⁠Anders⁠" Blume and Auguste "⁠Semmler⁠" Massonnat.

BLAST Premier Global Finals will run from January 19-24. The tournament features eight teams, including the current top three — Astralis, Vitality, and Natus Vincere —, who will play in a double-elimination bracket in the fight for the $600,000 grand prize.

The talent lineup is once again:

United Kingdom James "⁠BanKs⁠" Banks - Desk host
Switzerland Mathieu "⁠Maniac⁠" Quiquerez - Analyst
Denmark Jacob "⁠Pimp⁠" Winneche - Analyst

United Kingdom Freya Spiers - Interviewer

Canada Conner "⁠Scrawny⁠" Girvan - Commentator
Canada Mohan "⁠launders⁠" Govindasamy - Commentator
Denmark Anders "⁠Anders⁠" Blume - Commentator

2021-01-14 16:40
True, well i wouldn't call him balance as he can't balance two negatives, but he is a shining point in there.

It's amazing how they get the best casters but just throw their brains out when picking the analyst cast
2021-01-14 15:19
Pimp is funny because he ALWAYS picks against Navi and he is usually wrong... He would pick Galaxy Racer over Navi if they were in the tournament (just an unbiased perspective looking for fairness here)

I'm almost sure you say the opposite ,,,, that navi wins every time you see them ,,,, what is the difference between you and him ,,,, he gets paid for it,,,you aint get shit,,,well you are from Ukraine,,,what he earns at an event is what a ukrainer earns in a year ,,,,are you jealous ?

They are so annoying and have no clue about the game. I looked in to launders yt channel. He does demo analysis in his undershirt and says:" Oh yeah nice shot, oh he is so good at this game!" Or he talks about something unrelated to the game. Zero meaningfull analysis.

A failed (semi)pro turned shitty analyst. But that's enough of shitting on the guy from me.
2021-01-14 16:28
2 replies
He wasn't just a semi pro, he was pretty good in his roles, he just never really was star player material, but let's be honest: which analyst was a better player in their pro career? Noone comes to mind. Ppl hate on him for his accent and his kinda weird humor but imo he has a good balance between beeing a dick to spice things up and beeing a decent analyst. Him and maniac as a duo imo are really good at their job, don't forget that pro CS is entertainment for hundreds of thousands.
