I really enjoyed moletrap casting for GOM. He has an unique personality, he is fun to listen to and most importantly knows how to be a show host and not just a game commentator. He is one of those people that will say whatever is on their mind no matter how random it is - which I personally find quite entertaining. Good luck in the future.

By looking at the LoL vod comments, the community respects knowledgeable casters (like Phreak), and hates casters with poor knowledge, who just shout mindlessly. The only thing different is he doesn't have a vocal minority supporting him because "he used to cast bw from his car".
Also, I think eventually the casters who are clueless about the game (like TB, etc) will disappear, once esports become more popular and standards are raised. 99% of casters in "real life" sports (like cricket) are those who are ex-sportsmen, and can explain the intricacies of the game.

His casting as of late was more poor than it had been in previous seasons. I repeatedly saw him on air doing things like checking his phone or being completely distracted and losing his place in the conversation. Khaldor is a much better co-caster with Wolf and I far preferred when those two would do the casting.

Agree. Would be awesome with Apollo in GSL. He's one of the absolute smartest casters out there.
Well, Apollo just moved to Sweden, i'm not sure if he wants to move again. However, having him cast GSL would still be awesome. I'm thinking (or rather dreaming) Artosis and Apollo for analysis and TB as high energy play-by-play in a casting trio. Won't ever happen
Yes Artosis + Apollo would be awesome. And Khaldor instead of TB.
Be yourself! I love teamliquid :)

Moletrap seems to like Broodwar more than SC2, I always felt that he uses his SC2 job as a proxy to live in Korea and watch OSL's / MSL's / Starleagues imo. He's just climbing up the ranks in OGN to cast English commentary in Broodwar soon!
Moletrap's definitely a passionate person given his history in casting Broodwar. But that Torch guy looks straight up like an opportunist to me, as if he'll quit his LoL job to cast DOTA 2 in a heartbeat when he becomes irrelevant in LoL
Legends never die... they end up working in McDonalds.

not sure why he switched to be honest. people liked his casting i thought? and by all accounts he doesnt know much about lol ;D
You don't need to know a lot about LoL to sound intelligent about LoL, its a very flat game in terms of meta game and the for the first 15mins he doesn't have to talk about something about the game because of the laning phase lol.
Flat meta? Have you watched any pro LoL in the last 6 months? The changes are astounding.
Jesus man these forums are fucking terrible.
