LCS Spring 2021 Record By Caster: Team Liquid

Team Liquid Caster Record

As the 2021 LCS Summer Split nears, it is time to look back at the Spring and see what information could be gained. This is an important practice as teams and fans need to find out where their advantages lie. Clearly, there is one piece of information that is rarely if ever discussed. It is one that is quite important and could signal how a team might do on gameday. This is the start of a series that will look into what the win and loss record of each team was based on who cast their game. Here is a look at the Team Liquid Caster Record for the Spring 2021 LCS Split.

*Note: This includes the Lock In and Spring Playoffs.

Match

When gathering this information, it was important to start with each match and who did the casting. The table below shows each game and who the casting duo was for each particular game. For convenience, CaptainFlowers was shorted to CF as it fit better in the spreadsheet.

TSM (3-1)CF & Kobe
C9 (1-3)Phreak & Kobe

C9 (2-3)CF & Azael

This list, as one can see, did take into account each game that was cast in a series, not just the series win or loss itself. Not surprisingly, this would play a pretty important role in helping the scores of each caster. While it cannot be seen on here, each match and series was color-coded green for a win and red for a loss.

Casting Duo

Next up was checking the win and loss record as well as the winning percentage for Team Liquid when each duo cast a game. Listed below are the results and some thoughts about these results.

DuoWinsLossesPercentage
CF & Kobe5183%
Phreak & Azael020%
Pastry & Kobe4180%
Pastry & Azael2167%
Phreak & Kobe7654%
CF & Azael9660%
Pastry & Crumbz30100%
CF & Crumbz20100%

Of the three teams that have had this done so far, Team Liquid have the most interesting and diverse casting duos. For starters, Phreak and Azael are a very common casting duo, especially for the top teams. Yet they only cast two games for TL and both were losses to 100T and EG. They also had the most Pastrytime games of the top three teams with 11. Is this another team that should have Pastry casting their important games?

For those who may be wondering, in terms of playoff series here are the results for each duo.

DuoWinsLossesPercentage
CF & Crumbz10100%
Pastry & Kobe10100%
CF & Azael1150%
CF & Kobe10100%
Phreak & Kobe1150%

Again, the trend of diversity was interesting here for TL and their casters. There is not much to tell here other than the fact that none of the big four casters had a perfect record during the playoffs for TL. Each of them lost a game but oddly none of them lost more than one.

Individual Casters

Lastly, it was on to the individual casters and their performances while casting Team Liquid. As with the last two, listed below are the win, losses and winning percentages for each individual caster.

CasterWinsLossesPercentage
Captain Flowers16770%
Kobe16867%
Phreak7847%
Azael11955%
Pastrytime9281%
Crumbz50100%

Throughout the Lock In and the first two weeks and two games, Phreak did not cast a single win for TL. Up until the C9 game at the end of week three, Phreak had been 0-4 and did not cast a single Lock In game. While he finished 7-4, TL still ended up with a 47% winning percentage when Phreak cast their games. To no one’s surprise CaptainFlowers and Kobe cast the most games and had the most wins with 16 apiece. Even though Azael had the third-most wins, he also had the most losses with nine. Lastly, Pastrytime and Crumbz combined for a 14-2 record with each of them casting more games than either TSM or C9.

Overall Thoughts

Obviously, this is something that is more done for fun and for those who may be superstitious. That said, it is certainly something that may be in the back of Team Liquid fans minds as the 2021 Summer Split begins.

It will be interesting to see whether these do carry over for this upcoming Split as it is just about to begin. Also, there will be more of these published over the next few weeks looking back on the Spring Split records for casters. Will some of these start to be trends for all teams? Probably not, but it will be fun to find out. Make sure to look back as The Game Haus releases more of these and previews every team leading up to the LCS 2021 Summer Split.
