CSGO Anders & Semmler Video Interview

It's been a long road to where they are now... The casting bro duo of Anders Blume and Auguste "Semmler" Massonat has pretty much cornered the CS:GO market with their exciting, passionate and humourous commentary. Right now they are a vital part of the CS:GO landscape and are instrumental in the game reaching a broader, appreciative audience.

It wasn't always like this though. Not so long ago Anders was facing criticism from sections of the community and Semmler was looking for other e-sports work after the GD Studio was put on hiatus. It's been a wild ride and one that takes a serious amount of time to detail. I sit down with both of them and go over their career path, the nature of the business, why you shouldn't be an asshole and which one of them is the big spoon.

This is a great example of why eSports have grown away from TV. 43 minutes of insight into one of the many exciting communities of practice within eSports.

Great casters that help CS:GO to rise from what some deemed ashes only one year ago. And, as stated, a great view into a niche of eSports. Thank you.

Great iview!!!
I'm glad Semmler got into this game. I heard him do some random Quake-casting on the GDshow and fkn loved it! Glad to see him transforming his skills onto the CSGO side of things.

And I've come around on Anders with the pairings he has been part of. It was a bit dreary with him going solo ALL THE TIME when he started off (but major kudos for him sticking with it). Payed off greatly for both.
