The EPICENTER XL effect can already be seen as one of the duo casters from Moscow will make another Major appearance next week.
The recently ended Major featured six casters who were for the first time ever involved with a Dota 2 Major. Some more experienced, some really at the beginning of their careers, the EPICENTER XL Major commentators were given a chance last week to break into the scene.
Just returned from Moscow two days ago, Nick “BreakyCPK” Caras and Grant “GranDGranT” Harris were announced as part of the broadcast crew for the third to last Major before The International 2018. However, the entire English talent for MDL Changsha will not make the trip to China, instead, they will be gathering up at the Beyond the Summit studios with a few exceptions. Seven casters and analysts will be at BTS while Trent “TrentPax” MacKenzie, Dominik “Lacoste” Stipic, Treephob “Xyclopz” Tiangtrong and Nick “BreakyCPK” Caras will cast remotely.
The MDL Changsha Major talent list also includes one interesting surprise as compLexity Gaming’s manager Joshua “Chef Josh” Schmidt and the former captain of the team Kyle “Kyle” Freedman are both going to be present at the BTS headquarters.
