Here’s a complete rundown of who’ll be on hand for the broadcast of 2013 StarCraft II World Championship Global Finals.
Paul “ReDeYe” Chaloner
ReDeYe has anchored many WCS broadcasts this year, and he was part of what has made the live WCS Europe broadcasts such a pleasure to watch. While he often uses his quick wit to lighten up a show, he can also heighten the gravitas of any situation. Welcome to BlizzCon, ReDeYe! Try not to drop anything on stage.
William “Chobra” Cho
World Championship Series fans were first introduced to Chobra during the WCS Season 1 Finals. His excellent translations brought to light the personalities of many of the reserved Korean players, and provided some of the best banter we have had on an interview couch. Back by popular demand, Chobra and ReDeYe will be there to recreate their dynamic duo from the WCS Season 2 Finals.
Marcus “djWHEAT” Graham
djWHEAT is the eSports Veteran. He has hosted more audiences for more games than he’d probably care to admit. His love for the competition defines his career, and you’ll see that in full force as he anchors the WCS Global Finals Expert Corner. He’ll lead our analysts and special guests in a lively discussion of StarCraft II from the crucial anchor position.
Geoff “iNcontroL” Robinson
iNcontroL has a long history with StarCraft. His first major achievement was winning WCG USA in 2007. He is one of the most visible professional gamers in the StarCraft II community and one of its greatest contributors. As a member of the team Evil Geniuses, he has competed in many StarCraft II competitions across the globe, and worked as a caster or host at many more.
Yoan “ToD” Merlo
ToD performed an epic feat this year by both casting and competing in WCS Europe at the same time. A consummate professional, he excelled at both. When he wasn’t dropping Protoss knowledge bombs on stream, ToD reached rank #78 in the WCS Global Standings, and qualified for WCS Premier League twice.
Alexander “FunKa” Varrier
FunKa was a committed member of the WCS team this year, observing for WCS Europe and the WCS Season 2 Finals. He’s shown that he has the chops to be a premier StarCraft II observer. A former pro-gamer, FunKa regularly shoutcasts for O’GamingTV.
Michael “Adebisi” Van Driel
One of the most widely respected StarCraft II observers in the world, Adebisi has used his talents to showcase the skill of players in tournaments by MLG, ASUS ROG, and DreamHack. He was also on hand at last year’s Battle.net World Championship to bring us 2012’s major StarCraft II competition.
Phil “InFeZa” Bertino
InFeZa is an experienced observer from Australia, frequently covering tournaments in South East Asia. His talents caught our eye some time ago, and we’re delighted to give him the opportunity to demonstrate his skills in front of the BlizzCon audience.
