Sayle is a well known English Brood War commentator. He is known for his highly entertaining and energetic casting, similar to Korean commentators.[1]

Overview[edit]

Sayle started playing Brood War in late 2008[2], but never won any notable events. He joined the ICCup administration as a ladder admin in late 2010 and was responsible for the ladder section until April 2011.[3]

He is better known for his casting. Sayle did his first casts as an admin of ICCup, promoting one of the first A/B Tournaments after the StarCraft II Beta[4]. Although the event had been hyped on multiple sites, Sayle was arguably the key factor to its success. In between December 2010 and April 2011 the Englishman commentated more events for the Russian server, including the ICCup Clan League, ICCup Attack Shows and the AoV iCCup StarLeague. In addition to the tournaments, Sayle co-organized a show, which had the goal to explain Brood War to beginners.[5] In these months Sayle was already able to gather a significant amount of fans, despite the fact that his stream got featured on TeamLiquid relatively late.

After his departure from the ICCup team Sayle commentated most of the foreign events, including the ISL 2 & 3, Gambit Cup and events organized by his clan rD. In October 2011 the community honored the caster with a fan club on TeamLiquid[6], which was the first for a Brood War community member after the StarCraft II Beta. In November 2011 Sayle started to commentate Proleague and OSL.[7]

With the announcement of TeamLiquid Legacy Starleague 1 in January 2013, Sayle was announced as one of the casters of the tournament together with EleGant.[1]

Trivia[edit]

  • Sayle used to eat a lot of grapes during his long casts, which is why he is often associated with this fruit.[8]
  • Sayle went to highschool in the United States, but was born and lives in the United Kingdom. He was often jokingly called out as Canadian.[9]
  • Sayle claims to have found about Brood War only by a series of accidents.[10]
  • His max rank on ICCup is B-.[11]
