In an interview with The Score eSports, Sadokist, the popular Canadian CSGO caster, spoke about his new CSGO podcast with HenryG as well as many other things, here we’ll talk about our favourite answers.
Sadokist was asked about their setup, in the press release announcing Drop The Bomb it was mentioned they have a studio setup, he followed up by saying: “We’re doing it out of an Airbnb setup…
“In other words, Henry and I will be side-by-side. It’s not going to be crane cameras everywhere or teleprompters.
“It’s not a full studio per se, but it’s not webcams. It’s going to be done with high end cameras. I’m not going to give you the numbers, but we just spent a ton of money on a boatload of gear and we’ve hired a full-time producer, Tom Newman, and we’ll be setting a new standard for podcasts.
“If you look at esports as a whole, everything is great as far as live coverage, but where’s the ESPN show? Where’s the SportsCenter? Occasionally there are weekly shows and the LCS has some stuff with Riot, but they’re kinda out in their own in the world. We don’t have anything like that in CS and there’s clearly a need for it. There’s so many tournaments going on, it’s hard to keep track of everything and we want to bring all of that together.”
He was then asked to give his opinion about Na`Vi where he said: “the interesting thing with s1mple is that he’s always been known to be a troll … I’ve always said that the one team I could see s1mple playing a role on is Na`Vi and I think it’s because he respects them the most. In his mind they are the best players in the world. Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács is the best AWP, and it’s always been, he’s said it himself, his dream to play on that team. Now we get to find out if that’s true or not. Now we find out if s1mple will in fact respect them and hopefully mature into it.
“Unless GuardiaN makes the decision himself, there’s no way GuardiaN’s being a secondary AWP to s1mple. If you do look at the double AWP setup, Marcelo “coldzera” David and Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo are probably the best double AWP in the game right now, but s1mple and GuardiaN could easily rival that.”
