Today it came out that DoA, Monte and PapaSmithy won't cast at this year's MSI. And do you know why? Because Riot doesn't want to pay them as much as they should.

DoA and Monte were part of the casting crew for the last 4 major international events (IEM WC 2015, MSI 2015, Worlds 2015 and IEM WC 2016).

I personally will heavily miss two of League's best casters at MSI.

Thanks to The_Nameless_Bard for the sig!

I kind of understand this from Riot's point of view, considering they already have a very good casting crew. There's little for them to gain if they pay the full smack for extra casters if they already have others on their payroll. Regardless, shame. Doa+Deficio+Monte were a great combo at IEM and I'll miss that one for sure. I just hope it won't mean we see Quickshot cast lmfao

yeah why pay good casters when you can just cast a bunch of riot employees who don't know what they're doing?
