Cameron "Basskip" Scott is a freelance Dota 2 commentator and analyst known for high quality coverage for DotaTalk and BeyondTheSummit.

Biography[edit]

Originally born in South Africa, Basskip lived in multiple countries as a child. His father worked for the engineering firm Bechtel and his role with the company involved moving to multiple companies to oversee various projects. Currently Basskip lives in Brisbane Australia where he completed tertiary studies at the University of Queensland majoring in physics and software engineering. As a caster Basskip first got started with minor tournaments which eventually led into some small time work with DotaTalk. He first achieved notability in the mainstream when he cast some games for BeyondTheSummit in the 2013 season of WPC-ACE league as well as Sina Cup Season 2. In 2014 he was invited to cast The International 4 qualifiers with the North American hub and subsequently was also invited to cast at The International 4 itself in July.

Basskip is a passionate caster but also has ambitions to succeed as a player. He has played semi-professionally for Australian teams "Team S" and "Why Should I?". Team S enjoyed some success, notably attending the Defense of the Australian finals in 2014.

Trivia[edit]

The name Basskip is a hybrid between the Pokémon character 'Mudkip' and the musician and artist 'Basshunter'. Basskip said in an interview "At one stage I was trying to come up with a handle for Garena and my friend suggested that if I ever produced a techno album then my name should be Basskip." [1]
