Daniel "ddk" Kapadia (born May 11, 1988) is a British former Quake III player, now popular Quake and CS:GO caster for FACEIT.


Before Daniel ddk Kapadia started his career as a caster, he was a prolific British Quake III player, representing the then legendary 4Kings and Team Dignitas, alongside players such as 2GD, and played for the UK national team. His most notable results are a 5/6th place in CPL Singapore and a 4th place in EPS UK II.

After his Quake III career ended, he started to focus on educational Quake videos. He was quickly picked up by FACEIT TV, in its early day, to cast the Quake Live Sunday Cups. After years of hard work in Quake, the transition to CS:GO came, together with FACEIT itself. Starting slowly, casting events such as the monthly FACEIT Championship and Mad Catz Championships.

From there, Daniel became one of the faces of FACEIT TV, later joined by his partner-in-crime James Bardolph. The duo now represent one of the most recognizable faces of CS:GO, commentating many premier Counter-Strike events.
