Quote from Mark “Tralfamadore” Seidl:
“This is a great opportunity for me, and I'm really looking forward to being on the casting side of things. One of the people that has really inspired me to do casting is Day, and I think HoN could really use that top-level insight on a regular basis. I'm really looking forward to bringing some really informative tips, suggestions, and feedback to games at the highest level, because I think that's what the competitors want, as well as the more casual players looking to get better themselves.”
Quote from Nick “Breakycpk” Caras:
“When setting out to look for a co-caster, we made sure to use feedback from the community to assist in the process. We were not only looking for someone who is a confident speaker and could be entertaining, but also someone who is very knowledgeable of the game for the sake of the viewer and flow of the cast. With that said, I am very excited with our decision to pick up Tralfamadore as our official co-caster for Honcast and I can’t wait to begin working with him in the upcoming DreamHoN Event and much more. Tralfamadore is not only one of the best players HoN has ever seen, but also one of the most knowledgeable when it comes to the ins and outs of the game. He has also proven that he has plenty of passion for Heroes of Newerth and once again I am thrilled to work with him and I am confident the community will be pleased as well.”

Nice one Good luck Tralf
MoonMeander: Sometimes when I get bored at night I pretend I'm Chtuluphant and charge my girlfriend, pillow, blanket off the bed and yell "MRRHHHHHHHHHH!"
Parakletos: two kinds of people in the world: people who jump on their **** in the shower and dirty liers
Fantasy: You definitely are a GIANT contributer that I am, where I am.
You can follow me:
yay tralf! good luck, can't wait to hear you and breaky together.
Looks like HoN is going to take off again with all the recent actions by S2. I like.
seriously whats the point of posting that stupid reddit post? yea he may have been upset with s2 but it clearly shows just raw passion for the game that he hated to see die at the time, which it sadly was. picking up tralf is by far one of the best moves s2 has made and he will do nothing but good things for s2. would love to see him in on some of the game balance and future meta shifts as well. best of luck mr. tralf. hate to see competitive hon loose a legend but that is clearly from a spectator POV. you kept a dying scene alive just long enough to get it over that hump and get it into what looks like a very promising future for the competitive side of things. Looking at the big picture i expect great things from honcast as well as s2. thank you tralf for the entertainment you provided myself as well as thousands of fans over the last 1-2 years.
I'm sure this'll be good, looking forward to the weekend casts
And abit off topic, I'm sure that I'm not only speaking for myself when I'm requesting more frequent and better headsup announcements regarding upcoming casts on facebook / the actual Honcast site. Way to often lately do you start casting live without any headsup given in the "Upcoming broadcast" section of the frontpage of the site at all and way to often do the updates happen 1-2 hours prior to the actual casts. I realize you can't always predict when X or Y match takes place but I'm sure you'll agree with me when I say that mostly the updates could hit the page (the community) sooner than what we've seen the past few months.
Good for Tralf, but S2 should've picked someone else in my opinion. How many times has he bashed your company and staff?
Tralf is king!~!!!!
It's gonna be awesome to have a top drafter and one of the most clever players casting games!
Hope it goes really well!
