CASTER LINEUP

We’re also excited to reveal the caster lineup for the show, and we think you’ll be familiar with the people who will be breaking down the action on screen and providing in-depth analysis. Here are the casters for HCS Indianapolis:

  • Richard “The Simms” Simms: Halo community stalwart and one of UK’s finest.
  • Alex “Goldenboy” Mendez: Global Icon and National Treasure (his words, not ours).
  • Andy “Bravo” Dudynsky: Halo fanboy.
  • Dave “Walshy” Walsh: Halo legend with a certain knack for strategy and analysis.
  • Michael “Strongside” Cavanaugh: Halo Nation Champion and member of the 343 Pro Team.

This by far is going to be a great casted tournament. The addition of The Simms to this lineup is pretty great. Can’t wait for Indy!
