When it comes to League of Legends events, besides talented players and exciting games, the overall atmosphere also depends on casters and analysts. Even though we are reluctant to admit it, bad analysts and casters don’t raise the excitement of the live stream. That’s why Riot Games pay extra attention to choosing the team that will work on their tournaments and League of Legends All Stars 2016 is no an exception. Keep reading to find out the lineup of casters for this year’s LoL All Stars or watch the LoL Allstars Live Stream here.

Who will cast the 2016 Allstars?

According to the official release by Riot Games, a lot of familiar faces from Worlds will return to this event as well. Additionally, the lineup also features a usual group of analysts and casters from the LCS action. LPL/OPL casters such as Indiana “Froskurinn” Black and Zac “Rusty” Pye will be in Barcelona too. Since Froskurinn isn’t the fans’ favorite, Riot Games made up for that with the inclusion of one of the most popular caster. All loyal League of Legends fans will be happy that LCK caster Chris “PapaSmithy” Smith will join the panel too. PapaSmithy, who just finished his work as a part of 2o16 Worlds lineup, is one of the most beloved casters and it comes as no wonder why he’s traveling to Spain with the rest of the group.

The most eye-catching name on the list is Alfonso “Mithy” Aguirre Rodriguez, Spanish native, as well as a complete in-house Spanish team on the broadcast, the same people who usually broadcast the LVP, Spain’s domestic league. Let’s take a look at the casters lineup below.
