Have we reached the point where people have forgotten about Bardolph and DDK?


desuetude25

Well, the last truly big event they casted together was the FACEIT 2018 London Major, which was 3 years ago. Sadly ~~black DDK~~ Bardolph didn't cast anything in 2019 according to Liquipedia, and ~~white Bardolph~~ DDK only casted in the 2019 Starladder Berlin Major, without Bardolph as a partner. They both did cast in Flashpoint seasons 1 and 2, and while those tournaments can be said to be big they did occur during the online era. The heyday of Bardolph and DDK as a casting duo is probably ancient history to many of the newer followers of pro CSGO.


thisisntus997

DDK has been casting Valorant for a while iirc


desuetude25

At least he isn't retired but I don't follow competitive valo...


WhoIsDollar

Him and Sean Gares are the one reason I watch some Valorant matches.


AdSpiritual6239

Great casting for worthless seeding matches


sankalp4

Riot didn't even reach out to DDK for their biggest tournament, his talent is being wasted there.


mikhel

The casters Riot had at Masters besides Pansy and Sean were pretty fucking atrocious. I can't stand the fake manufactured hype style that permeates all of Riot's broadcasts.


shadowtroop121

as most people on the val subreddit will tell you, if you want interesting casting on val majors you have to watch plat chat.


ArmshouseTV

Bro what is this paragraph


desuetude25

Please cast stockholm major


Toannoat

the bleed-out of culture and personality we had during the last two years is truly sad.


i_drink_your_cum

what do you mean??? you get to listen to pimp and maniac amazingly charismatic analysis!!!


Tostecles

Bardolph and DDK casted Blast LA in 2019


desuetude25

Huh. Liquipedia lied to me literally unplayable


nxscythelynz

you mean ddk and black ddk? or bardolph and white bardolph?


WayDownUnder91

Considering they haven't casted anything big in years yeah.


ImpenetrableYeti

I mean bardoloh is a toxic asshole on faceit so hopefully


[deleted]

What sad times are these when passing ruffians can refer to James "Yet-to-frag" Bardolph as such.


FlamTheDead

Put some respect on Black DDK's name.


xtcxx

Some say visionary


ElAtiendeBoludos

Thats not just any caster, thats Black DDK with White Bardolph


siccun

I believe you mean 'Black DDK with White Black DDK'


Chosen--one

This duo as been of the things I miss the most since starting to watch cs again.


ArmshouseTV

Hi


berzhan

Miss your casting, man


ArmshouseTV

Thanks! The guys who fill most of the calendar don’t hire us but we here.


ortisfREAK

Any news on flashpoint and when we might see you casting again?


Breete

Time for Flashpoint 4: Electric Boogaloo


Dapplication

Hello black DDK! Just asking, did Valve contact you before the operation about this? I honestly wonder And do you hate being called Black DDK?


ArmshouseTV

Not specifically. But... I don't hate being called that at all.


zRandyMarsh

Interesting “but..” there We will look into this here on Reddit for years to come.


DrunkLad

> Not specifically. But... Aight, 11 days later and I'm guessing you can talk about it now since it's official: Was the "but" a hint at you being a caster on the Major? Can't wait for it btw!


DrunkLad

Also, just for a bit of context: "Black DDK" was stuck because his nickname back then was JZFB and no one could remember it. His co-caster was DDK, so "black DDK" caught on.


inf3ctYT

The disrespect is unreal


arvaq

please forgive this uncultured child which is OP


anonhost1433

Relax, the whole comment thread is litterally centered around Bardolph, this probably brought more attention to James.

ArmshouseTV

Of course. It’s available to download but I might need to update the link

ah yes if it isnt NIPTVanders


cHinzoo

Oh shit, another caster commented 👀


Im_Dallas

Hi caster!


ObsidianJones

Miss ddk


YaqootK

The frustrating thing about watching him cast valorant is the fact that he is SO GOOD at the colour/analysis side of things but the pacing of Valorant does not play to those strengths well He was always amazing at breaking things down in the early phase of a round but in Valorant as soon as those barriers come down it's straight into play by play due to the early engagements. But I have to say his play by play has improved massively so I guess there is silver lining!


Ishaan863

the first pro tournament I ever watched of CSGO was DDK and Bardolph casting a Dreamhack event. I remember thinking that's some great casting. And it was.


lemmnnaa

I miss Bardolph. He is the man.


NeonPrankster

Wasn't it based off of Bardolph?


G2Climax

Bardolph invented scuba diving


ArmshouseTV

Finally getting the credit I deserve


NeonPrankster

I see! Thanks for the correction!


HateSpeechPromoter

Davida “Goggles” Fernandez is based off of flamie


Zale_0215

how dare thee op forget thy name of sir James Bardolph and squire DDK


I_Propose_Parlay

Put some fucking respect on his name


mawin007

scuba skins on De_dust De_mirage lol


painXpresss

Now we also have Danny Trejo and Private Vasquez(Aliens) as T agents. Nice


Kenz0wuntaps

Bring them back dammit


tzinga7

I have seen bardolph say in his stream that ESL won't simply hire him for casting. Such a shame that a caster of his likes is inactive in ESL events due to this. And as pointed out by many, DDK is now casting competitive Valorant.


wvarp

I'm gonna be honest, I got into CS right before the pandemic (1 month or 2 before) and I could barely tell its Bardolph and don't know who DDK is.


AzulaMilk

"This caster" smh put some respect on Bardolph's name
