Auguste "Semmler" Massonnat, also known as "SemmlerTheRiot", is one of the main personalities seen in the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive scene. He has casted many tournaments worldwide, which include Valve sponsored Majors and league finals.


Semmler started out as a shoutcaster and broadcaster for the game Bloodline Champions. He was originally from the USA, but had moved to Sweden to be a part of The GD Studio. He transitioned into a more active role in the StarCraft community with tournament hosting opportunties, but later switched to become a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive shoutcaster on the WebTV NiPgamingTV. Semmler and his co-caster, Anders Blume, went on to form Room On Fire and became co-owners after leaving NiPgamingTV.
