Former Call of Duty caster Jack "CouRage" Dunlop made a surprise return to the analyst's desk at CWL Anaheim, his first appearance at a CWL event since leaving MLG earlier this year.
CouRage was a fan favorite caster and analyst, working full time with MLG for many years, but decided to step away from casting and work on YouTube and livestreaming, building his personal brand.
He did say at the time of leaving that he planned on still being around the community and attending events, but didn't say whether he would ever return to the desk officially.
He has certainly enjoyed his time since moving on as well, gaining hundreds of thousands of subscribers on YouTube, and regularly attracting thousands of viewers to his stream on Twitch.
But with the biggest open CoD event of the year taking place in Anaheim, CouRage decided to drop by and catch up with a few familiar faces.
He announced he would take a few days off from his daily stream to attend, but fans were still surprised to see him up on the desk providing some laughs and insight into the matches.
Now a member of OpTic Gaming's content creation team, he is still very much in the loop with Call of Duty esports, but always the entertainer, he broke the ice with a joke.

He stuck around on the desk for the Luminosity vs Enigma6 match, even discussing the motivation of former OpTic Gaming player Matt "FormaL" Piper to prove he made the right move leaving the team to join LG.
If fans are lucky enough, someone at MLG may even convince CouRage to cast a match on championship Sunday, for old times sake.
