Capitalist: "Would be great for Dota if CIS finally got a title" - Position 6 Highlights

posted by joinDOTA Staff,
This week Dan welcomes the one and only Austin 'TheCapitalist' Walsh to Position 6. The caster has been a staple in the Dota scene for years and makes for an excellent guest with lots of interesting insights.

In this week's episode, Capitalist explains how he prepares for his casts. While many people believe that good casting is just a product of spontaneous creativity, he is not afraid to admit that he takes notes, has some witty remarks up his sleeve, and prepares interesting information for his audience. All the stuff, commentators come up with doesn't just come "from the top of your head" as Capitalist argues. He learned much from traditional sports commentators and tries to implement their approaches into his work.

With only a few weeks to go before The International 2019, Capitalist also dares a bold prediction prior to the Dota World Championship: in his opinion, neither Vici Gaming nor Team Secret are going to claim the title but a team from the CIS region.
