The 10 000 dollar invitational Starcraft 2 tournament, ASUS ROG Stars Invite, calls for two more familiar faces to the scene as TotalBiscuit and Apollo are announced as casters for the action packed weekend starting at 4th of November.
The last ASUS ROG Starcraft 2 tournament at ASSEMBLY Summer was a blast. Partly because of the dynamic duo sitting behind the mics raising the entertainment value of the event a great deal. Who else could you imagine casting the Stephano vs BRAT_OK game in Testbug where a spine crawler rush is being dealt with battle cruisers? It’s fair to say, these guys have talent.
The lead voice in our familiar casting duo is none other than TotalBiscuit, the Cynical TotalHalibruit, the one guy in the StarCraft 2 scene you will never want to challenge to a tongue twister duel. While his in-game actions per minute might not be world class, his words per minute certainly is, and his play-by-play can leave you staring breathless at the game, even if all that is going on at the time is a scout probe stealing five minerals.
Balancing out the duo is fittingly the ancient god of poetry and knowledge, Apollo, who brings on the deeper insight of a long-running RTS veteran and overall steadiness to the broadcast. Coincidentally Apollo is also the only StarCraft 2 caster that has beaten a Finnish tournament admin in a 1vs1 match, and that alone speaks volumes about his competence.
