Machine returns on IEM Rio Major talent lineup

An all-out selection of 24 high-profile names will be bringing the action to life at the IEM Rio Major.

The talent list for the upcoming Major in Brazil has been unveiled, with 24 broadcast members set to guide viewers through the first Valve-sanctioned event in CS:GO outside of Europe and North America.

The $1,250,000 tournament will get started with the Challengers Stage on Monday, October 31 and run for two weeks, where it will conclude with a best-of-three grand final on Sunday, November 13.

Machine is set to return to casting duties after previously being absent from ESL Pro League Season 16

Presenting the Brazilian Major will be a quartet of desk hosts: Tres "⁠stunna⁠" Saranthus, Freya "⁠Freya⁠" Spiers, Pala "⁠Mantrousse⁠" Gilroy Sen, and Jasmine "Veracity" Kanuga.

The tournament will also feature an eight-man team running the casting side of things, headlined by the commentating duo of Alex "⁠Machine⁠" Richardson and Chad "⁠SPUNJ⁠" Burchill, who will be reuniting on the microphones after the Briton was absent from ESL Pro League Season 16.

Why is there no clear favorite for the Rio Major?

Rounding out the list of commentators are the Canadian trio of Mohan "⁠launders⁠" Govindasamy, Conner "⁠Scrawny⁠" Girvan, and Matthew "⁠Sadokist⁠" Trivett, as well as Hugo "⁠Hugo⁠" Byron, Harry "⁠JustHarry⁠" Russell, and Jason "⁠moses⁠" O'Toole.

IEM has recruited a handful of household names to explain the analytical side of things, including Janko "⁠YNk⁠" Paunović, Mathieu "⁠Maniac⁠" Quiquerez, and Alex "⁠Mauisnake⁠" Ellenberg, the latter two also working at the PGL Antwerp Major back in May.

The aforementioned trio are notably joined by Luis "⁠peacemaker⁠" Tadeu, who will be present at the Major in his home country after all despite being relieved of coaching duties by Imperial back in August.

James "⁠BanKs⁠" Banks will be conducting interviews at the upcoming Major, with the Briton also being joined on the sidelines by Anastasija "⁠Heccu⁠" Tolmačeva and Eefje "⁠sjokz⁠" Depoortere. The Latvian will be travelling to Rio de Janeiro after also being an interviewer at the IEM Road to Rio Americas RMR in Stockholm, Sweden.

Kinda sad to see Anders not be a caster though, he is the GOAT. And also remove peacemaker from that analist desk, that man has destroyed more teams than Emilia Hult has destroyed players
2022-10-26 21:37
5 replies
I wonder if Anders wanted to try something else, given that he’s one of the most loved casters and has talked ab loving skybox a lot, maybe he chose this? I tend to think peacemaker won’t contribute much compared to the better analysts lmao

Yeah could be that, very true. I mean if anyone then Anders is a perfect fit, i just would love for him to cast what might be one of the most legendary Majors hopefully

I doubt he would even work with blast. He did work with them but they told him to keep quiet about device and he refused so they fired him. Also, I think they are partly owned/sponsored big time by UAE so idk

This is just a typical talents group that ESL would hire for their other tournaments anyway. Zero surprises. I wish Bardolph would have been here given he is truly a S-class caster but ESL tends not to get him for some reason. At least, their casters are fine. On analysts, with the exception of Maniac, the rest are borderline average analysts that I usually mute and pause the stream until the next map/match happens.

2022-10-26 23:30
Best 4 casting duos in cs right now - good work. Anders didnt makes the casting cut which I understand so probably wanted to keep him in the team so created this role for him - even though he's not really known for "in-depth" analysis
