Brendan Valdes is a StarCraft II commentator, regularly casting Proleague and StarLeague for SPOTV Games.

Biography[edit]

Before casting StarCraft II, Valdes was a League of Legends broadcaster at OGN. On December 14, 2013 it was announced that he would be casting 2014 Proleague, joining Wolf and mOOnGLaDe.[1]

In July 2015, he casted his first tournament outside of Korea which was 2015 DreamHack Open: Valencia.

Trivia[edit]

  • Him, Wolf and mOOnGLaDe are jokingly called "Team Salmon" which comes from one of their conversations during the Proleague broadcast.
  • Was given a nickname "SpicySalmon" by iNcontroL at 2016 WCS Winter Circuit Championship because he was the only caster at the event using real name as his handle.[2]
  • Originally played Protoss, but switched to Terran for Legacy of the Void.[3]
