As the North American Star League moves to a live format for NASL Season 3, three additional casters have been added to the NASL casting crew: MrBitter, RotterDam, and Frodan. With the addition of these new casters, viewers of NASL Season 3 will enjoy an exciting variety of casting styles and perspectives.
While preparing for NASL Season 3, the casters were asked about their thoughts about the upcoming season, and why they were excited to be a part of the NASL team.
Reflecting back on Season 1, Gretorp reminisced on how he had been excited to be part of a “group of gamers, friends, and do-ers coming together to try to make a league like nobody else had before. We had high expectations, high goals, and big dreams at the start of NASL. “
Moving on to Season 2, Gretorp mentioned that the NASL team “showed the most determination out of anyone I have ever seen before in my life. We have improved by leaps and bounds.”
When asked why he was excited for NASL Season 3, Gretorp proclaimed he was happy that NASL is once again, “innovating the scene and pushing the limits of what people thought weren't plausible. We have new and improved equipment, a great casting lineup, awesome staff, and tons of motivation to deliver the audience the best and most relatable tournament that they have ever seen.”
In addition to the production improvements for NASL Season 3, Gretorp is enthusiastic about the changes in the season format, pointing out that the money on the line for every match gives each player “a shot to win tons of money in the group stages, which is something that hasn't been seen in any other league.”
In closing, Greorp stated, “We are actively pushing the envelope and trying our hardest to make the best tournament. I'm really excited for NASL Season 3 and I can't wait to share it with my fellow community members.”
When asked how he felt about joining the NASL team, MrBitter stated, “I'm very excited to be coming on board for NASL Season 3. The NASL team has really pulled out all the stops for Season 3. The production crew has been overhauled, and is anchored by a bona fide Hollywood producer.”
When asked about his thoughts on becoming a part of a larger casting family, MrBitter stated, “Kevin and I coming on means more casters, which is good for a multitude of reasons. It means casters won't burn out after 13 weeks of everyday broadcasting. It means the viewers won't burn out from seeing the same guys day in and day out. And most importantly, it means we get to keep doing what we love to do: cast awesome Starcraft.”
With regard to the new league format, MrBitter was quite optimistic, stating, “the format of the season has been improved, as well. Games will be live, and there will be live showmatches regularly. And at the end of the season, we'll have a live caster bash, the likes of which the community has never seen before. ;)”
In closing, MrBitter summarized his overarching sentiment with the following: “On the whole, everything about this next season has me amped up and ready to go. NASL Season 3 is going to solidify the North American Star League as one of the biggest players in the eSports scene.”
When asked about his thoughts on the format of NASL Season 3, Rotterdam stated that he is, “really excited to follow the progress of players for 9 weeks in a row, as it lets you see their play styles evolve.” Additionally, Rotterdam is happy about the new live format, stating casting “as many live games as possible is going to be awesome” and that “working with a dedicated crew is something that really excites me.”
Rotterdam’s fans who know that he pays close attention to statistics won’t be surprised to hear that he loves, “the fact there is always something to fight for with $150 on the line,” for every match.
When asked about the current roster of players in NASL Season 3, Rotterdam did exude a tad bit of positive bias, saying, “I'm loving our player line-up so far, and I hope my Euro boys will show the rest of the world once more what they are capable of.”
Looking forward to the Sunday ShowDowns planned for NASL Season 3, Rotterdam expressed his enthusiasm for these events, stating, “I'm very much looking forward to our show matches, which I can see turning into a real classic event that everybody wants to watch!”
In closing, Rotterdam offered this sentiment: “All in all, I think Season 3 is going to be by far the best Season NASL has run so far, and I'm glad to be a part of it.”
When asked why he was excited for Season 3, Frodan stated, “with the return of many powerhouse Korean players and the continued refinement of general Starcraft II strategies, I guarantee Season 3 will be one of the most memorable seasons we have seen yet. NASL has listened to the feedback and retains the motivation to constantly improve to bring the highest quality product.”
When asked about the opportunity to work for the NASL, Frodan stated, “I am extremely humbled by this opportunity to work with some of the biggest names in Starcraft II. I guarantee every viewer that I will be endlessly working on providing an enjoyable, exciting, and entertaining broadcast."
Thus, as the NASL studio bustles with preparations for Season 3, the casters and the entire NASL team sincerely look forward to offering viewers an unparalleled and enjoyable eSports viewing experience. Simply, the NASL casting team invites its viewers, as Frodan so simply put it, to, “Watch with us, laugh with us, and yell with us.”
