Anders Blume, (born December 7, 1985), most commonly known as Anders, (formerly known as illusion, when working for NiPTV), is one of the most prolific casters in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene. He hails from Denmark and is also the founder and co-owner of Room On Fire along with Auguste "Semmler" Massonnat.

Biography[edit]

Unable to find satisfaction as an English major in college, Anders began his casting career for CS:GO in early 2013 as the founder of Pugcast. After a mere few weeks of casting, he was contacted by Ninjas in Pyjamas and offered to star in NiPTV.

It took no time for Anders to gain recognition from the community. He was included in the casting lineup of DreamHack Winter 2013, after a Change.org petition garnered 631 signatures. It was the biggest CS:GO event in 2013, and Anders' first major tournament appearance. [1]

Anders left NiPTV with his co-caster Semmler in June, 2014, and the two went on to form Room On Fire. [2] To this day, Anders remains the most prolific caster in CS:GO with his voice being heard in most major tournaments.
