Just a few days before the League Championship Series is about to take off, ESL is announcing the final crew for the event.
Riot’s own casters Leigh ‘Deman‘ Smith and Trevor ‘qu1ksh0t‘ Henry will assist Joe Miller and Jason ‘ButButButILY‘ Kaplan in casting the event. Both Deman and Trevor have been casting a lot in the League of Legends scene recently and were eventually rewarded for it with full-time jobs over at Riot’s headquarters.
But is this enough for Deman? No way! He will be swapping between the European and the North American tournaments to be casting just for you!
Who will host the event?
The hardworking media girl Eefje ‘sjokz‘ Depoortere will be the main host for the event. She has recently moved to Cologne to be able to host this event. She is known for her summoners recap and a multitude of interviews she has done for the League of Legends community.
Here is a statement from her Facebook
I have some awesome news friends! You will be seeing me every week… – because I will be hosting the European LCS matches from Cologne!!!
Statement from Trevor ‘qu1ksh0t’ Henry
“The League of Legends Championships series is kicking off soon and I am in the best seat possible. Shoutcasting practically every single week of the EU LCS. I don’t know how else to describe this league, other than absolutely epic. The first day of games has some amazing match ups already, GG vs EG the two heavy hitters of EUW, SK looking to avenge their dramatic loss to xPeke and the rest of Fnatic, following this match up Fnatic will be fighting GIANTS, the team that defeated them at the LCS qualifiers. The fact that there are so many great teams, and so many great rivalries, it just makes this entire league even better! I look forward to casting each and every week and I hope you are as excited as I am!”
Statement from Leigh ‘Deman’ Smith
“I just moved to Cologne and I’m very excited to be involved in Season 3 for League of Legends here in Europe – what I think we can all agree will be an amazing year for League and eSports. I’ll be hosting the weekly matches on Saturday and Sunday and on top of that I’ll be working on creating awesome content for the fans. I dont know about you guys but Im unbelievably hyped…”
