The 2019 KeSPA Cup's previously cancelled English broadcast was revived just before the beginning of the event, casters Max "Atlus" Anderson, Brendon "Valdes" Valdes, and the English broadcast production crew have only needed a day to prove that it was worth re-instating for a fifth consecutive year.

 

Despite having an English broadcast for every season's iteration of the KeSPA Cup since its inaugural event in 2015, the 2019 KeSPA Cup did not plan to have an English broadcast until T1 CEO Joe Marsh, with support from fellow LCK organization Gen.G, offered to help fund the English cast.

 

Traditionally, Atlus and Valdes have both fulfilled the role of Play-By-Play Caster, but the duo was able to find a healthy back-and-forth with just enough analysis to balance the zaney energy during the two best-of-three matches that took place on the first day of the 2019 KeSPA Cup.

The casters weren't the only folks making sure the English broadcast was proving its worth to the KeSPA Cup. The production of the broadcast featured fully translated graphics and statistical analyses to ensure Western fans are recieving the same quality of viewing experience as the those watching the native broadcast local to South Korea.

 

Atlus and Valdes' fellow LCK caster Nick "LS" De Cesare and former LCK caster Seth "Achilios" King, who most recently casted the 2019 Overwatch League season in Burbank, California, are allegedly joining the broadcast in the following days as the KeSPA Cup continues to unfold.
