This handsome cast of characters will be the people who will be analyzing and casting the event from Romania. Many of the faces are very familiar and have been in the game for a long time. Finally knowing who will be describing the games is always an exciting day, as they add so much to the viewing experience. It could potentially make or break a tournament.
One of the very exciting pieces of new coming from this announcement is that Paul "Redeye" Chaloner will be returning to the Dota 2 desk. After hosting both TI5 and TI6, Redeye was not asked by Valve to host the most recent TI.
He posted a Twitlonger about this after it was announced, speaking of how he had not fallen out of love with Dota, and would be returning to the desk soon enough. He had become a fan favorite over the years and it is good to see him back on a Dota broadcast.
With this announcement, it further signals just how close the PGL Open is. On Oct. 19, the action kicks of from Bucharest and will be a good barometer of what these teams will look like going forward.
