Here’s Who Will be Casting at Worlds

In about two weeks things kick off for the 2016 League of Legends World Championships and one very important thing is who will be casting, hosting, and analyzing this whole shebang.

Well have no fear as Riot has released a list of those who have been invited and accepted said invites to this glorious event. You can find the complete list at the bottom and there will be some pros, coaches, and former pro hopping on and off the analyst desk from time to time.

Now, notably missing from the list, but not from our hearts, is the OGN LCK casting duo Christoper “Montecristo” Mykles and Erik “DoA” Lonnquist. This has pretty much all been talked about on Reddit so I’ll just gloss over the important parts. DoA was invited, but isn’t accepting it because of personal projects and work in Korea. Montecristo on the other hand was not invited and will be working on the new OGN Overwatch League kicking off come this October with DoA. Both released statements about being invited and not being invited and both were very professional.
