Are you a loyal fan of the League of Legends franchise and passionately follow the LoL esports scene, players, and teams? Then you know that the whole experience wouldn’t be complete if there weren’t League of Legends casters.
Who are the casters?
Casters are the ones that provide you with all the information about games, players, teams, and other news from the world of League of Legends.
The best and most detailed understanding of the game comes from the moderators who’ve played it themselves. The casters and analysts are the game’s voice in any professional League Of Legends broadcast. Their job is to comment on what’s happening throughout the match while providing knowledge and insight into champion matchups, jungle paths, item builds, and skill interactions.
Like any commentator, casters need to be prepared for unexpected developments, know every team and champion, and adequately convey the live match experience to all viewers. The caster has to have a magnetic personality, speak clearly and be interesting.
You’re probably familiar with some of the most popular faces, but here are the top 5 casters of all time.
