CSGO caster Machine roasts “whiteboard” Twitch streamers

Counter-Strike casting pair, Alex ‘Machine’ Richardson and Henry ‘HenryG’ Greer mocked “whiteboard” Twitch subscriptions while plugging the Premium Pass for the ECS Season 8 Finals.

Both Machine and HenryG are casting veterans within the Counter-Strike scene. Richardson has flirted between the analyst desk and casting, which provides for some unique ad-lib commentary. 

While Greer has long been a staple name within CS:GO, which was recently recognized as he picked up Esports Caster of the Year at the Esports Awards. Given the pair’s array of talents, they often bounce off each other — producing some content both in and out of the server.

Machine’s transition back into casting was aptly timed, since HenryG and Matthew ‘Sadokist’ Trivett full-time casting duoship came to a halt back in August. 

HenryG and Sadokist were a casting duo synonymous with big CSGO moments.

Ever since, the British pair have frequently casted together. Most recently, the pair were bouncing off one another at the FACEIT ECS Season 8 Finals, in Arlington, Texas.

While transitioning to Fnatic vs. MIBR’s second map, the pair provided a shrewd plug for ECS’ Premium Pass. HenryG prompted: “What would be the most exciting way to actually spectate this game if you were going to?”

After explaining the benefits of the Premium Pass for the cost of a “normal Twitch subscription” Machine jested: “So instead of just putting money in the pocket of someone who puts your name on a whiteboard, you can put your money where your mouth is…”

Continuing with Richardson’s play on words, Greer asked: “What happens with the whiteboard?” Machine then responded: “Well, what happens is if you press subscribe, your name gets written on a whiteboard…”

“I know exactly who you mean. It’s nice to see your name up in lights on the big screen!” HenryG joked. “Small price to pay,” Machine added, before bringing it to a close. “Or ridiculous price to pay, depending on your perspective.”

Although the pair perhaps poking fun at certain Twitch streamers, there seemed to be no malice intended with the skit, especially as no specific names were mentioned. 

The ECS Season 8 Finals appear evenly poised, as the playoff bracket will see the current top four teams in the world lock horns in Arlington.
