IO Esports just dropped the full broadcast talent lineup for the upcoming Dota 2 Bali Major. There are two divisions, the on-site talent who will be live at the event, and the remote talent, who will cast the games online. Check out the hosts, panelists, and casters that will flavor our Dota 2 experience below!

On-site talent features notable hosts, including the rising talent from South Africa, Snare. We'll also see must-have duos on the casting desk, namely ODPixel and Fogged, as well as Cap and SVG. Joining in on the broadcast desk will be KBBQ, former manager of Quincy Crew and Soniqs. Names like WinteR, BSJ, Fear, and SeekNStrike will also be present on-site.

The most interesting additions are Aurora and Resolut1on. Aurora is a Malaysian Dota 2 player who is also a Dota 2 gold medalist for the Commonwealth Esports Championships 2022. Resolut1on last played for Team Secret in 2022. Now a free agent, he will make an appearance on the broadcast desk for the Bali Major!

The remote talent will contribute to the third Dota 2 Major from afar. We'll see the presence of Lyrical and Trent, a prominent casting duo in the game. Interestingly, Synderen is not a part of the Bali Major broadcast, thus SUNSfan will apparently duo cast with Jenkins.

Next, we have MLPDota and johnxfire, the ultimate SEA duo, and Gareth x Lacoste, who never fails to deliver great casting on top of priceless comedy. The Bali Major remote broadcast talent is also joined by the calmer duo, Epidamnos and 343. Dktruman and KheZu round up the Bali Major talent.
