The broadcast team
Bringing you live commentary, analysis, and world-class banter throughout the event will be the mighty Turin, Italian Spartacus, Janet On Occasion, and Creative Assembly’s very own Dogbert.
One of the most prolific and informed commentators of the Total War series, Turin is master and commander of a Total War: WARHAMMER and real-time strategy channel on YouTube, delivering a heavy focus on competitive multiplayer, tournament breakdowns, and game analysis.
From WARHAMMER and WARHAMMER 40,000 lore videos to Total War campaign and competitive matches, Italian Spartacus covers the many facets of these overlapping worlds with encyclopedic knowledge and a terrifying Gollum impression.
Janet On Occasion
Janet On Occasion, rather misleadingly, is a full-time man. A man who plays Total War: WARHAMMER on YouTube. Expect multiplayer battles with his trademark Queen’s English accent as well as dual tactical and cinematic viewpoints driven by a love of the WARHAMMER fantasy setting.
Hosting the event and helping with commentary will be Creative Assembly’s very own James “Dogbert” Given, a former pro gamer himself and veteran of Total War livestreams.
Working closely with our commentators Turin and Italian Spartacus, we invited eight top players to take part based on their skill, reputation, and flair. Check out their player profiles here to learn what each competitor will be bringing to the Everchosen Summer Invitational.
To show off the madness of Total War: WARHAMMER II’s free-for-all battles to the fullest, we invited and recorded eight well-known streamers and YouTubers fighting it out for your amusement – watch these matches back with expert analysis from two Total War multiplayer designers.
Saturday – Streamer Showmatch
Sunday – Total War Content Creators Showmatch
