PGL Major Antwerp talent lineup announced

An extensive lineup of on-air talent will bring you the action in Antwerp over two weeks in May.

A little less than a day after all the participating teams have been determined, PGL has announced the complete on-camera crew who will be on the official English broadcast of the upcoming Major tournament taking place in Antwerp, Belgium, from May 9-22.

Many from the Regional Major Ranking broadcast will return, but there will also be some new yet familiar faces on camera when action kicks off at the Major itself. Joining Eefje "⁠sjokz⁠" Depoortere in duties on the desk will be Freya "⁠Freya⁠" Spiers, while Frankie "⁠Frankie⁠" Ward has been appointed as the stage host.

Freya will be splitting duties with Sjokz on the analyst desk

PGL has chosen a trio of analysts in Jacob "⁠Pimp⁠" Winneche, Mathieu "⁠Maniac⁠" Quiquerez, and Alex "⁠Mauisnake⁠" Ellenberg, with the latter set to return to the desk after a stint making sideline content at the qualifying events in Romania.

On the commentators' post, Chad "⁠SPUNJ⁠" Burchill will have his usual co-star Alex "⁠Machine⁠" Richardson back by his side, with another highly popular duo Mohan "⁠launders⁠" Govindasamy and Conner "⁠Scrawny⁠" Girvan set to return after two weeks of action in Bucharest.

Harry "⁠JustHarry⁠" Russell and Hugo "⁠Hugo⁠" Byron will be back behind the microphone in only the duo's second-ever appearance on a Major broadcast, while the fourth and final commentator pairing will be Vince "⁠Vince⁠" Hill and Sudhen "⁠Bleh⁠" Wahengbam.

like dont get me wrong, I can get behind RL on the desk, he does some amazing work there, but Thorin I feel is only there for unfunny jokes and shit analysis. Like how is he even an analyst? Especially his in game knowledge is lacking hard, when compared to other good analysts, like YNK, spunj etc.

2022-04-25 21:54
Just cuz ur narrow minded and can focus and learn only one game doesn't mean he is? The guy has been following esports as a whole for 20 years meanwhile you just chat shit about him on internet forums

Get out of his balls. He is unable to make deep analysis on csgo. This is clear. I dont know about other esports. But he is unable to work as a professional on a major. There are better people than Thorin for the job. Doesnt matter if he was good on cs 5 years ago. The game change, the meta change, the players change, but he always makes the same kind of dumb analysis that any silver can make.

The issue is that almost all of his takes are shit. He hayes it when teams sign new talent and shits on thebplayer for it. Exhibits a & b, sewie2k when he first joined c9 thorin what on him for being too puggy, the rest of the community joined the bandwagon. He was fucking godlike on that roster. Broky when he joined FaZe, thorin decided that he was ass. Broky is now one of the worlds best awpers. He just calls shit with no evidence and nobrains like you decide to hate players for it.

LMAO You HLTV clowns shat on c9 for picking up stewie. Everyone did, even patriot alpha like moses was confused about the pickup. And about broky, he mainly talked about NiKo and FaZe picking up a noname t5 baltic player when they have money and resources and needed a new igl instead of an awper Didn't see any of you noobs talking or hyping up broky before 2020 xddd

I only started following CS in 2019. Do you know what I learned inside of a year? People with brains don't shit on new talent. If the scene is going to grow and improve, we need them. Astralis signing lucky was good, mouz bring up their academy players was good. Even if it didn't work out short term for astralis, it gave lucky a chance to grow and become a t1 player. I dislike this EG roster because they threw old prices together and guess what? IT DIDNT WORK. So before you shot on me as an hltv nobrains, think about how what I learned in a year thorin is still doing after following CS during source. If he had his way NIP would still be undeafeted, because he hates change.

"Giving talent chance" That's like a child's movie when the mc with low expectations exceeds them and becomes the best. Counter strike is a competitive game and bots like lucky who can't replace DEVICE shouldn't be on Astralis
2022-04-25 22:32

This is hilarious because it's absolutely the opposite of what Thorin said recently on Pop Flash. He specifically stated that the CS community often has way too high expectations for new players and doesn't give them sufficient time or support to develop, and specifically brought up Lucky as an example of this. He said that he feels bad for Lucky because his poor performances were due to Astralis not developing him properly or giving him the support a young player needs, and that it was terrible that the knee-jerk reaction of the community (aka you) effectively ruined this young man's career and we'll probably never get to see him develop into the player he could have been. If you're going to suck Thorin off and say he's the best analyst, you could at least usd a few brain cells when making that argument.
2022-04-26 01:10
1 reply
We have different perspectives. Yes, Thorin feels bad about Lucky because he maybe will not develop or have a shot at a t1 team. But at the same time, because he was trash, a great team like Astralis who have the potential to be top5 with k0nfig, blameF and gla1ve shouldn't need to keep an undeveloped player who isn't ready for t1 on the roster (+ he was replacing device, if not the GOAT then 2nd Greatest of all time) so expectations were higher for him compared to someone like m0NESY or Torzsi since in monesy's case he wasn't replacing an awper (G2 didn't even have a proper awper before) or Torzsi who was replacing acoR who was shit.
2022-04-26 17:15
PGL will hire whoever gets attention, and he has a lot of followers. Doesnt matter which caster is his friend or not. If you pay attention to his analysis you will notice that he is unable to say anything smart about the game. You will never learn anything about the game when you hear him speak . Maui, Launders and Bleh can make far better csgo analysis.

Dude, ur down bad 💀 Making up such stupid claims as following is dumb. Why then they hired someone like Vince, Maui or Bleh? They don't have a huge following. If they hire cuz of following why didn't they hire Semmler, Anders and SADOKIST??

Those guys have something to add to the table. Thorin has nothing to add, he just make some dumb takes to get attention. The only thing in his favor is that he is friends of smart people. He is entertaining to hear, but isnt smart enough to be at the major, i am sorry. They gave him a chance last year but he wasnt good.

lets be real here, he isnt a good analyst. Hes an entertainer and a pretty good one at that, but he cant leave his own bias behind, which is needed in the analyst field. Also is actual strategical knowledge and especially in-game knoweldge is lacking hard aswell

Yet he isnt qualified to be an analyst at the major? Like where is that relevant? Yes I know, that he brought light onto him, but he doesnt work regular events at all, his qualities are lacking, so why should he be at the major at all?

he has worked 8 majors and is definitely capable as an analyst, he also does analysis on podcasts and videos on his channel and elsewhere. to say he is not qualified is disingenuous.

He doesnt work any events whatsoever in the last years, disregarding majors. His YT analysis is not good. Im sorry to say that, but he is by no means an analyst worthy of being at a major. Furthermore not working any events just intself should be a reason to not work the major at all. If you are a talent, you work as one, and not only do majors. I honestly cant remember what plays he broke down in detail, or which details he said, that other analysts didnt point out.
2022-04-25 19:43
10 replies
i agree with the sentiment about not working events I think that may be the biggest issue but his analysis is solid and just cause it doesnt have flag emojis after every team and his twitter behaviour isnt focused on analysis doesnt make him worse. Where can we find in depth 40 minute analysis about the state of team from any of the other analyst talent?

Um he's got more than enough game knowledge to get by and he's got the most knowledge on scene's history out there which compliments the desk of three great. Don't even miss him not being on the desk, I'd be more salty about Frankie as stage host for this event or lack of established names in the cast. Plenty of LANs for newer talents to be had, major is crème de la crème as far as I'm concerned. With that said Thorin on the desk is perfectly fine.

Pimp, Maniac, sjokz (not for CS tho), launders, Spunj, maschine are all established names in the scene. Just because people like semmler (who doesnt cast much atm), moses, sadokist etc. are not there how is this talent lineup not the creme da la creme in your words? It has nearly all top talent of our scene from the past 2 years there. Add to that sjokz who is well known in LoL and did a few CS events before. Like thats as good as it gets. Thorin has no right being at events anymore, if he doesnt work more events during the year. That goes for all talent. You need to actually do stuff as talent over the year to work the major in my opinion. Add to that Thorin being mediocre at best as an analyst so yeah
2022-04-25 21:50
1 reply
Agreed, the only thing I would change about this lineup is the addutoin of sadokist and Moses, both been putting it their backs into it on smaller events to get their casting back up to par, and sadokist in particular deserves it
2022-04-25 22:24
Thing is, talking 40min about ones opinion about a state of a team is vastly different and easier thing than talking about neutral objective facts for any amount of time which is required for analysts. Thorins takes have never been objective when the fact is against his personal views.
2022-04-26 01:30
4 replies
do you think his most recent video about the vitality roster and how it is going not "neutral objective facts"? There are many things there that fit under that category. You can argue he has bias with larger things such as ESL but what examples do you have of his analysis of a team etc being affected his personal views?
2022-04-26 02:02

As an one example, one of the main believes he has is that in the long run teams with more money are the only teams that should be able to stay at tier1 for any prolonged period of time. Therefore he does not like any team that does not have strong org behind the team and does not like underdog stories. For example I remember few years back that he really didn't like Ence, said that they are "an anomaly" to reach top5 with weak financial backing they have and didn't really talk about cs why they reached top levels at all. I have not any of the recent stuff, there is just no point.

this is so false in every way he is a massive fan of MOUZ because they are an old esports company that is very effective at using little money to produce great teams through scouting etc. he doesnt hate underdogs and it is an objective fact that better backed orgs tend to flood the top of the rankings cause they can get better players? he also talks about gambit (c9) being a very good lineup and that the org of Gambit is very small and has been able to stay relevant through scouring CIS players. idk where you get these ideas from

You have your timeline all messed up. And while Thorin got Maui onto epicenter Maui got himself on pretty much the rest through his skills.

+1 idc about the analyst desk now i will just skip it and the casters are fine imo, whats really going to kill it are those observers, and PGL have been known to have problems with hiring good observers. maybe these guys are experienced and are good i cant be sure but i already see the same thing coming: they will miss a bunch of action all the time and PGL will not have the budget and infrastructure in place to deliver whats now standard for blast and ESL events: to pretty much always show at least a replay of anything that was missed. and on top of that they have the best observers in esports already in place.

Bad talent list. Not awful, not good, just mediocre. No Anders ? shame No Moses ? shame No Sado ? LMAO shame No DDK ? shame No Bardolph ? shame Bleh as a caster ? mehhh Frankie ?? after all she has done against you ? after all the shit she talked about the last "all star lineup" ? pls have some ego PGL Everything is good otherwise. Cool to see Freya/Sjokz duo i really want to see it. all the casters are very talented and Vince is so underrated im so happy to see him back. Who do you take to cast the final tho ? Rude question there isnt a single duo that will do the trick for a major final. They all 3 have the same level.

dont agree about a lot but imo this is a clear cut spunj and machine final, imo they are the best in the business. altho i agree hugo and harry have become world class now and deserve the slot and particularly launders whom i used to despise has leveled his game up a lot and is not anymore getting carried by scawny.

Are these the same observers that did the RMR?
2022-04-25 19:58
esl events equal blast events in terms of production, godly observers for the most part (especially rushly imo the goat observer, so far ahead of everyone else) but also replays for everything that was missed and slowmos for anything that might have happened super fast. but this is my biggest worry about the event also.
2022-04-25 20:31

ESL production is somehow underrated because everyone's busy sucking off Blast. Don't get me wrong, Blast always fantastic, but ESL has been at that same level for ages imo and doesn't seem to get the same level of credit for whatever reason. Also yeah, rushly is just an absolute god.

Interesting take. Though I don't understand how Pimp would be less entertaining in his harsh takes than someone who only gives mild takes. I think the point of talent in between games is to deepen the viewers understanding of the games and give points for viewers to focus on and therefore make the games in itself more entertaining and easier to watch. Though I can see why someone would instead think like you said.

Define bad. He is consistent in his style, clearly understands the game as well or better than other analysts and bases his takes on things he has observed in the server. All good qualities for an analyst. And then jumps into over-the-top conclusions which many people seem to hate. I don't hate it, its his personal style.

Weak, mostly the fact that pimp will be there, fucking annoying dumbass trying to be edgy like thorin but somehow only embodying his very worst and most unlikeable qualities coming off as a complete tool, at least maybe we'll get some more players roasting his ass live during analyst/player moments. Also missing a lot of good casters but at least Launders/Scrawny and Machine/spunj are there. Also frankie is so fucking stupid but at least as a stage host she won't actually have to bring anything besides welcoming the teams.

i think hes acceptable, not bad enough to mute but not good enough to pay any real attention to, gotta love spunj/machine and harry/hugo pairs tho, theyre either very good at hyping the game up or being funny and just having a convo when things are cold in the server edit: i do miss ynk tho and no rushly and prius as observers worries me a lot but well see how the other observers do i guess

yeah but theyre the last casters so they will most likely only be casting the smaller secondary matches (like challengers when there are 2 streams at once)

thats not the only reason, hes also a retard and his demeanor is annoying. nothing compares to the god tier analysis of ppl like seangares, and pimp and maniac dont get past the cringe level when they try to banter or be edgy. its super vanilla and made for 13 year olds from twitch chat.

he does quite shit on the desk, never says much useful or in depth, no charisma, no banter, im not even sure why he got hyped by thorin etc. imo this guy is completely out of place. the only thing he used to be good for was some insight into the asian scene, which has been pretty much irrelevant for many years now tho.

That is the worst talent lineup I have seen for a major. Possibly ever.
2022-04-25 20:23
yea, let's put Launders to cast (who is more good in analysis than casting), or Bleh with Vince instead of Sadokist or Anders or Moses or Bardolph. Crazy moves right here

I assume PGL is racist towards Bardolph. Last Major they were Not so crazy when you consider that PGL is so poor that they run PGL from romania. The only cheaper nation would be Ukraine... That tells you everything about them.

This time they invited the two best casting duos. I know others are legends, but just like players learn from each others to improve, so does the casters. And the hungry just improve faster than an established legend. Scrawny & Launders has (IMO) slow and steady taken over the position as the best duo IMO. They have good role balance and a their synergy still seem to be growing. Second best is Hugo & Harry. Harry has great energy, I always love listening to his smiling tone of voice.

Your arrogance is on the brink of insanity, that's my opinion. Let me know how you measure the skill of a caster. It can o ly be a fact of you are using strict parameters. If it's not exact parameters, it's not factual, and can never be. You can call it a fact a billion times, and it's still a lie. IE. You are a liar, and that's a fact proven by yourself.

Moses and Sadokist were the only ones I had gladly seen instead of Vince and Bleh but other than that I like these people, especially to see both sjokz and freya as desk hosts. Compared to last major the amount talent seems a bit fewer, for a major it's a rather thin lineup but I guess even PGL running out of money despite their budget-friendly oriented events.

There are only so many slots for talent at a major. Sad to not see my boy Anders and Moses but Harry and Hugo deserve this big time. Great seeing Frankie's return to the scene and happy to see Sjoks joining Freya as a desk host!

Not pimp pls

Not Scrawny. He thinks yelling = hype, is unfunny, and thinks he’s smarter than everyone. He makes it hard to watch matches he’s casting.

so far Im not a fan of Scrawny and Launders, because the hype that you described is just moaning, thats all he does, meanwhile Launders can explain a lot of stuff thats happening, but hes like a damn robot, 0 emotions when talking
2022-04-26 11:14
This is a good line up reflecting most of the best talent over past few years. Especially good caster choices - looking forward to it.

Alright, I can fuck with the new generation, launders and scrawny are pretty good. Harry and Hugo? Ooookay... I got used to Spunj and Alex. But seriously. Vince and Bleh????? While no Anders, Semmler, Sadokist, Moses? Wtf is this crap
2022-04-26 10:42
Where tf is Moses, anders, and sadokist?
2022-04-26 12:45
The worse caster list of all time.
2022-04-26 13:15
I don't want to spread hate or anything but I personally don't like these casters. Nostalgic or not, old casters were much better (RedEye, Anders, Semmler, DDK, Bardolph, even Pansy)

Stage host -> weak Interviewer -> awesome Desk hosts -> awesome Analysts -> weak Casters -> awesome (pansy comeback would have been sick tho) funny, how there is really only black and white nowadays.

I really try, but I don't like Pimp, nothing to do with his accent, just the way he express his opinions are whack.

Decent. -Frankie +Heccu, -Harry and Hugo +sado and moses, -Pimp +YNk and it would be optimal.
