[VOD] Discussing Train removal, casting, and roster changes with Anders on HLTV Confirmed

The renowned CS:GO caster Anders "⁠Anders⁠" Blume joins the show at 20:00 to share his thoughts on the direction of the game and his new projects.

A handful of last-minute news, including Jason "⁠moses⁠" O'Toole' departure from Liquid and the introduction of Ancient to the competitive map pool, ensured the panel has exciting topics to discuss on HLTV Confirmed S5E38, featuring guest star Anders.

What are Anders' thoughts on Ancient?

The Dane spent a large chunk of the "online era" working on things aside from commentating and will share his experiences working on the "visualization, monitoring and analysis platform" Skybox and Double Scope, a YouTube show dedicated to CS:GO tactics and strategies.

Regular members Chad "⁠SPUNJ⁠" Burchill, Milan "⁠Striker⁠" Švejda, and Zvonimir "Professeur Burazin will also chime in to the discussion, with the focus turning to what happened in Flashpoint 3 and IEM Summer qualifiers, as well as the groups of DreamHack Masters Spring in the second part of the show.
