DreamHack Masters Spring 2021 talent lineup unveiled

The tournament organizer released details about the on-air team for the upcoming $250,000 event.

The 16-team event scheduled for April 29 - May 9 will feature a two-week format, with the group stage and playoffs split with a four-day break. To analyze the tactics and bring the action in the tournament, DreamHack has employed a nine-member broadcast team.

Albeit the organizer didn't reveal the exact roles for each member, Sudhen "⁠Bleh⁠" Wahengbam, Janko "⁠YNk⁠" Paunović, and Mathieu "⁠Maniac⁠" Quiquerez should slot into their regular analyst roles, with the two casting duos being Chad "⁠SPUNJ⁠" Burchill - Alex "⁠Machine⁠" Richardson and Alex "Hawka" Hawkins - Adam "⁠Dinko⁠" Hawthorne.

Finally, the interviewer and host roles will be handled by Conner "⁠Scrawny⁠" Girvan and Frankie "⁠Frankie⁠" Ward, respectively.

The following team will work the DreamHack Masters Spring broadcast:

United Kingdom Frankie "⁠Frankie⁠" Ward
Canada Conner "⁠Scrawny⁠" Girvan

If you really listen to his casting then you should notice below :- He talks shit most of the time while casting. Never talks about lost bonus,swing rounds,never hype up clutches,doesn't know history of players, doesn't know history of matches/closed qualifiers etc SPUNJ and YnK are good analyst. Launders doesn't have the skill to be a caster or analyst. /closed

well then stfu? Launders is prob one of the people, who is most fitted to be an analyst. He has been doing Demo Analysis of Pros and Casuals since over 5 years now I believe and has an insane knowledge about CS.

Even comparing him to Pimp is delusional. Idk just watch the video he did with styko I guess and tell me again how bad he is. At this point I just dont know if your trolling or actually being serious

idk mate. I just don't like him and mostly because an analyst should be able to bring more stuff into rounds. He doesn't even know coaches of each team or how loss bonus works, Vertigo run boosts etc. These are some stuff I remember and it is irritating to watch when someone with little info casts a game. Look at SPUNj, he is an analyst and how does he even catch minute smokes/flashes in every round.

Spunj used to be an IGL, which helps him a lot. Idl what game your watched but that isnt my experience at all tbh
2021-04-27 23:14

I don't have the link. Just for example, during a 100T match, when Liazz and Grata tried to do a Tspawn to B stairs run boost in Vertigo, launders casting looked foolish. He was like why they are running on the rail when they have other areas.Trust me, he was not being sarcastic at all there. Secondly, during a GenG match, when Elmapuddy was seen on the screen, launders was like who is this guy? Most of the time scrawny clarifies these details to him. Finally, I don't see any productive info being shared while he cast apart from some basic shits and nodding to launders. I don't like him as a caster/analyst. I don't disrespect your choice as well. Barring Harry/Hugo/Machine/Spunj, still there are much better casters/analyst in the scene than him. ddk/black ddk/Bleh etc. For me Semmler/Anders is also much above these guys.

Scrawny is good atleast in hyping up and to me he knows more about CS than launders. He just need to stop exaggerating.

Anders & Semmler Vince & Dust / Vince & Tombizz Scrawny & Launders Spunj is top tier analyst, probably the best with Maniac. Machine is a top tier host. Their casting style is just obnoxious with all the meaningless filler shit and the OOH AAHS. It was funny for two weeks a year ago, now it's just annoying. Sad to see ESL single-handedly bringing down the quality of casting by having them in every single event. tl.dr. Personal preferences
