With a little less than 4 weeks to go until the first Major of 2021, and the first international LAN event in over a year, PGL has announced the on-air talent for the Major.
Plenty of known names have made it onto the roster. The majority of the talent will come from the PGL ran English production for the SEA and CN DPC leagues, as it to be expected, but we'll also see Sheever, ODPixel, Fogged, and a few others join them.
The biggest surprise to the lineup is Sumichu, a host that has mostly worked within the fighting games and speedrun communities. This will be her first Dota 2 event and it seems likely that she will work in tandem with Sheever on the desk.
With all the big names attending the event, there are a few missing. Mosts notably the American quartet of Cap, Kyle, Purge, and BSJ. All of whom were staples on the EU/CIS DPC streams this year and did a stellar job. However, someone has to be the odd man out and it is understandable that PGL chooses to mainly work with talent they've worked with for the season.
With this announcement, the first Major since COVID shut down the world is now feeling more and more real. This is going to be exciting, to say the least.
