MSI 2021 on-air talent revealed, including Bwipo and Wadid

The 2021 Mid-Season Invitational will include a big on-air talent team with casters from every major region. 

In a recent announcement, Riot Games revealed the on-air talent team for the upcoming MSI tournament. The team includes 24 people, with Fnatic top laner Gabriël “Bwipo” Rau and former G2 Esports support Kim “Wadid” Bae-in both set to take part. Besides that, the team will consist of talent from the LEC, LCS, LPL, and LCK broadcasts.   

With the MSI taking place in Iceland, teams will be competing live from the location. For the broadcast, the analyst desk will be done live from the LEC studio in Berlin with a host and analysts. From the studio, there will be remote call-ins from around the world just like in the recent 2021 LEC Spring Split. All the casting will be split between the LCS, LEC, and LCK studios and won’t be done on site. 

To have someone from the broadcast conduct interviews live from Iceland, James “Dash” Patterson has been sent on-location to interact with the teams and players. Some interviews will also be done by Laure Valée from the LEC studio.

The 2021 Mid-Season Invitational will begin on May 6 and will see 11 teams from around the world compete for the first international trophy of the year. Originally, there were meant to be 12 teams in total but GAM Esports from the VCS won’t be able to participate due to travel restrictions. 

Nonetheless, the tournament is looking to both be competitive and have a high-quality broadcast. The feel of the tournament will likely be similar to the 2020 World Championship, where all teams played in China. Fans will still have to do without a live audience but a new champion will be crowned no matter what.   

The first game of the 2021 Mid-Season Invitational will be between Cloud9 and DWG KIA on May 6.
