Apollo is probably the best caster out there right now. Spot on analysis, able to distinguish essentials from superficialities .. sees the map, understands the game-flow, knows what is important for viewers RIGHT NOW and able to put it forward in a casual "talking among friends" kind of way. Plus he has an absolutely gorgeous English accent. Where Artosis can get too bogged down in details, Apollo nails the heart of the action. Pure talent. Pay him liberally, cause he deserves it.
You go Apollo !!
Now, if only Dreamhack could get a seasoned Korean observer too (no one single observer outside of Korea knows how to observe sadly), I would be in heaven!

How curious that grubby finds himself on the player roster for this very Dreamhack as well as the casting for MLG. Something does not add up here..
I was wondering about that as well, wondering who got it wrong.
I'm guessing Grubby won't show up to Dreamhack
Grubby won't show up to Dreamhack indeed.
Z : JD, Stephano, TLO - P : Grubby, Squirtle, PartinG, Oz, PandaTank, Le ToD - T : MMA, Polt & Flash — Root for TL, TSL & Millenium — DH Summer '13 : 3 Frenchmen in Ro16, who would have thought?
damn..... id rather see TB than incontrol making his european jokes that are not funny... Nice to see wolf tho! Will be interesting to see Wolf/Apollo they are both so technical casters will be interesting + i think they can develop some chemistry.
Idra is the most overrated pro i swear - someone in chat, after aLive 4-0. Foreign team: Empire Korean team: Startale

One would think that you'd bring someone like Husky or DOA or Day9.
Husky? Please ...
Husky is proberly the most important caster the sc2 scene has ever got or will ever get. The amount of new fans who got introduced to starcraft becuase of Husky is breathtaking
I'm not saying he's good or bad, but doing good PR does not automaticly mean you're a good caster ;P
OT: This is really awesome news! I think iNcontroL will be an excellent host as he's got a great personality, great insight into the game and he does fantastic interviews. Apollo and Wolf are both awesome on their own and I really hope they go well together as a team and this should be one of the best casted tournaments I have ever had the pleasure of watching!
And for people wondering why they haven't signed Day9 and others for this event, this is not nearly as big as Summer/Winter, and will most likely never be. Signing (example) Day9 would be incredibly difficult for anything but the huge Summer and Winter-events. Simple because these Opens aren't as big. And Day9 is bizzi.
