    same old same fucking old

      Yeah they need to sign new talents too! The casting scene is too stagnant now. Find: @Heflamoke | @HeflaTV

    I am not a fan of OD pixel, i think he is kind of annoying and way to full of himself. Also not the biggest fan of Slacks, sometimes he does pull of some nice jokes, but most of the time, i find him annoying and to disruptive. I am looking forward to see lyrical at a Lan though, he has been one of my favorit casters for quite a while now and i also do enjoy the constand involvement of fogged! If there is one person currently that i would enjoy seeing more/listening to more, its KoreanBBQ/Jack. I think he has a phenomenal way of casting/analyzing and he is allways very knowledgable, especially as an expert on the chinese scene. Im very curious how liquid will perform, but i can see them taking the whole thing. Id say EG and Liquid are probably the most favored to win it. Closely followed by OG, DC and probably wings, allthough i have to admit, i havnt seen them play at all since a while and have no clue about their current form.
    • Arvell "revyrain" Skynative ,
      EG doesn't participate in this tourney though. Judging from recent plays, I think it will be between OG and Liquid, followed closely by DC and Wings. Though who knows if Wings already mastered this patch 7 yet, and probably come out with a surprise strats.

        Rofl @ me I shouldnt try to look smart on sundays like that! I agee that OG is next on that list. DC on the other lost 0 - 2 to NiP yesterday. They are so very up and down in their performance ... really hard to guess if they are currently in form or not
  • Jim "ArtVandelay" Jones ,
    0 English people in the English talent lineup and 2 Russians in the Russian talent lineup... what a gip!
    • Lai "MaxienLai" Wei Herng ,
      OD Pixel is English.... and Godz is Aussie so technically English i guess.
    • Professor "changeling" Chaos ,
      More borderline racist comments plz?!? Also, it is not literally "english", but obviously for anyone with half a brain "casting in english".
  • Juan "hombre" Tamad ,
    Merlini will be sucking white dicks again while casting.
  • qwertyuiop "smart_id" asdfghjkl ,
    from SEA qualifiers TNC ?? no faceless ??
