BLAST Premier Fall Final talent announced

Ten people will be tasked with guiding the viewers through the action of BLAST Fall Final.

The Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark will host BLAST's return to LAN between November 24-28. The event will see eight teams battle it ​out for a chance to win the lion's share of the $425,000 prize pool with six of them coming straight from the group stages held in September, while the remaining two ran the gauntlet at the Showdown in October.

SPUNJ will again pick up the mantle of analyst

The on-air talent will include Freya Spiers as the desk with James "⁠BanKs⁠" Banks coming back as the interviewer. The event will feature the return of Chad "⁠SPUNJ⁠" Burchill to the analysts' desk alongside Mathieu "⁠Maniac⁠" Quiquerez while Alex "⁠Machine⁠" Richardson will partner up with Alexandre "Archarom" Maia to bring the Royal Arena to life.

Two regular BLAST pairings will bring us the action from the server with Conner "⁠Scrawny⁠" Girvan and Mohan "⁠launders⁠" Govindasamy working side by side with Anders "⁠Anders⁠" Blume and Auguste "⁠Semmler⁠" Massonnat.

The full talent list is:

United Kingdom Freya Spiers - Host

He only spits out random words that make no sense or have any connection to the game/round. On top of that I doubt he actually understands the game fully as he seems to think like a silver. Good thing Launders clarifies some situations for him...

RL would be great analyst and he is doing a good job being the host, but Freya I feel is more emotional and engaging - therefore doing a better job during breaks between matches.
2021-11-03 21:03
i mean its not hard to be > RL but i agree. glad blast is not hiring those two grumpy hasbeen alcoholics

It makes sense that SPUNJ and Machine aren't casting together, they usually don't do blast events and I wouldn't expect them to replace the main blast casters

Yeah. Kinda got that... That's why I'm so happy to see him as the stage/arena host. He and OJ Borg are the best at it. Stunna is also good. Freya is perfect as desk host. Love her <3

Thing is its PGL so it probably will be smaller or equal to what she gets from BLAST because they're cheap fucks A lot of talent will probably say yes to the Major for less just because its the Major and theres much much more prestige to it

ohhh so maybe thats the reason RL and thorin got work again? T1 talent was too expensive for PGL? they had to bring back the thirsty desperate outcasts for cheap.

I'd rather prefer Banks at the desk than Freya, but I guess its good that they mix things up a bit, since Banks did the previous event last year as the host.
