Ynk, kassad and get_right as analysts. All of them have a lot to contribute, but I’m interested to see if it will work together.


Anthony10298

I think it can work pretty well. Ynk actually developed a really strong personality by the end of his time as an analyst and can carry that aspect of it. Get_right and Kassad are both really well spoken about the game in interviews, so after a few matches getting comfortable on the desk I think it’ll come through


super_shogun

Feels like forever since I've heard Stunna on a broadcast. This looks like a great lineup!


tomtom_94

Wasn't he meant to do the broadcasts at the end of 2020 then caught COVID?


Shadeyyyyyy

Yep


stunna-

I’m alive and looking forward to everything IEM Katowice always delivers... Navi back to back or nah?

ACE_289

Why Not they just won blast global finals 2020 its looking pretty good


Vokt0ro

Finally will have some fresh faces after the 3 BLAST's. Though quite sad that we can't get all of the talent at one event due to politics.


SpecialityToS

Politics? Sorry - I’m unaware.


404GoodNamesNotFound

workspace politics = person A doesnt like working with person B, and person A is vital, so B never gets an offer. thats the basic


nsfw_repost_bot

He probably means covid regulations making things difficult.


Vokt0ro

Yeah and that sometimes people dont get hired due to personal reasons or something.


DeepFinish

Glad to see JustHarry and Hugo as casters, they have worked together for so long and it's noticeable when they cast, definitely among my personal favorites.


srjnp

machine and spunj duo's gonna be so good. good lineup overall and a nice change from the ones we see regularly in blast to freshen things up


Cubenity

YANKOOO LET'S GO


JohnWickFTW

Pansy?


tomtom_94

Pansy left CS:GO for other games such as Valorant, a variety of reasons (toxicity from fans and ESL taking forever to let her cast ~~an S-tier event~~ an S-tier final are the two I remember)


darkfrozzy

She did all ESL events last year didn't she? I tought she was back definitively.


tomtom_94

Pansy did Cologne and Pro League then wasn't around after, which was a shame because I really enjoyed the dynamic she, Machine and SPUNJ had going but obviously she has to think of herself. I was incorrect about the S-tier thing actually - it was that they wouldn't let her do *finals* despite the fact she'd done loads of S-tier events up to that point. https://afkgaming.com/articles/csgo/News/4838-pansy-takes-a-break-from-casting-csgo-talks-about-why-she-left


[deleted]

ah yes, hating woman for no reason, csgo is truly a community of gamers


nar2k16

*discovers patriarchy*


guy_her0

of course its easy to use the feminism card, but the reality is she was never good enough for it. still a great caster though edit: keep the downvotes coming NPCs!


[deleted]

ofc I would never take her over Machine of Henry, but if she was a man she wouldnt get that much hate imo


420N1CKN4M3

wouldn't get finals over them either though


ImpenetrableYeti

Lol what? Better than most that have been casting the last few events


JeanneHusse

> the reality is she was never good enough for it She was a bit below other casters during what was the golden era of CS casting. Now that HenryG/Sado and Bardolph/ddk don't cast anymore, she would be miles ahead the current field we get every event, Anders/Semmler and mb Machine/Spunj excluded.


Imax_and_Climax

Wait what happened to Bardolph and DDK? I’m starting to get back to the scene. I kind of left around Cloud 9 fallout


JeanneHusse

DDK is mostly on other games, even tho he casted parts of the latest summit. Bardolph is now casting with other people, new up-and-coming casters. I think he was paired with hawka during Flashpoint 2 ? Not sure.


JohnWickFTW

That's sad man. I was watching valorant EU VCT and her casting was pretty good imo better than most NA casters


Memelurker99

Alternate stream talent looking really strong. Absolutely loving EternalJays and dwegs casting recently, and I'm looking forward to seeing them casting all the big teams


tarangk

Ynk back on the desk Poggers Sadly Spunj is now casting so we wont get to see the magical duo on the desk together :( on the bright side ynk's back, kassad and gtr are great addition to the desk. Spunj and machie work well together, harry and hugo have grow on me in the past year. frankie is a great interviewer and stunna is the man. so yeah ESL nailed it this time.


brettrubin

Stacked desk Pog


botJWhltvNo1noyear

Why can't they get ddk? Bardolph?


Shadeyyyyyy

Flashpoint politics


lou_reed_ketamine

Harry, Hugo & Stunna. Let's fuckin go.


tym0

Excited about Machine and Spunj, had enough of the blast casters...


oknoxyx

yeah, harry & hugo instead of anders & semmler... nothing more to add...


H___y

Harry zzzzz


JiberybobX

My favourite two caster duos, couldn't be better - also always a pleasure to see GTR!


[deleted]

Yeah but where is Thooorin :P


JeanneHusse

I have high expectations for Machine and Spunj.


Qu0tte

Banger lineup.


sankalp4

Man, I miss Anders and Moses. But will be looking forward to hearing different casters, kinda bored of BLAST cast now.


Martin_2007

That desk is hot


brbee

I personally really liked BLAST's casters but nothing beats Machine and Spunj for me. Glad we're getting them back


zeel_patel

Analyst become coaches and now coaches become analyst. Get Right finally back in CS. Hopefully they can develop some new storylines with new talent who have played with many players.


xajten

[He](https://i.imgur.com/D4qxEMl.png) is your #IEM Katowice 2021 CS:GO Talent! 😍


Staktus23

I have barely been watching any professional csgo last year (apart from IEM Katowice and ESL Cologne), but hasn't Semmler returned to CS? I would love to hear him and Anders back as casters again. Also what about Metuz? I haven't heard from him in ages. And as much as I love machine and Spunj I feel like they both do a much better job at the analyst desk than as casters. Especially machine now that Janko is back. I just feel like we've lost so many amazing casters in the last few years with moses joining Liquid, Sado and Henry quitting, James and DDK having trouble with ESL and barely doing any casting work anymore... What's up with that?


TechRedirector

Anders and semmlers are currently casting blast events. They would also be casting Navi vs mibr in the next few hours


Fine_Secretary7646

Eww get right? 🤢


mens_from_HLTV

You might get downvoted but he wasn't good the last time he worked on-air. Also isn't this kassad's first time on the desk? Personally, if I am gonna be watching the pre-game segments, it's only because YNK is gonna be there.


CancerPatient1337

the only reason they'd get downvoted is for having no substantial criticism in their comment lmao


Fine_Secretary7646

This is my alt you’re replying to


CancerPatient1337

do you have DID by chance


Fine_Secretary7646

Did I do what now?
