Two of the most popular VALORANT casters will not be present at VCT Masters Tokyo

Recently the VALORANT fan community has received the news that two of the game’s most popular casters will not be present at VCT Masters Tokyo.

Tom “Tombizz” Bissmire and Mitch “MitchMan” McBride are the casters who have been left out of the upcoming tournament that will take place in Tokyo. Unfortunately, the casters announced they would not participate in the tournament. The news was public before the organizers officially announced it.

The VALORANT fan community has not well received this announcement. These two casters have been responsible for winning the fans’ affection over the years, so the news of their absence from the tournament has not been taken in the best way.

To announce the news of his absence at the VCT Masters Tokyo, Tombizz used his Twitter account. The caster, in a publication, comments that both he and MitchMan have been informed that they will not be able to attend the tournament held in Japan as part of the talent of commentators.

On the other hand, Tombizz adds that they both feel sad but know that this could happen at some point. He also adds that they are open to accepting other work proposals.

MitchMan responded to the comment made by Tombizz. MitchMan commented that for them, it is something new to see the tournament from their homes. On the other hand, he commented that both casters had thought about traveling alone to be present at the tournament; however, the trip cost was very high and out of their budgets.

New casters for VCT Masters Tokyo

Riot Games sometimes rotates their casters; in 2022, we saw how they changed Daniel “ddk” Kapadia and Sean Gares. This time it was the turn of MitchMan and Tombizz.

However, the fan community is not taking this last change well; some say they feel very sad about their departure, while others feel that Riot Games has made the worst possible decision.

In addition, other people have been upset with the news and are attacking other casters who could be his replacement. Among the possible candidates are:

  • Michael “hypoc” Robins and Lauren “Pansy” Scott.
  • Clinton “Paperthin” Bader and Seth “Achilios” King
  • Josh “Sideshow” Wilkinson and Brennon “Bren” Hook

So Tombizz has made another post on his Twitter account where he thanks all the love they are showing him; however, he asks not to attack other talents; he claims they are all his friends and no doubt the people who replace them will do a great job in Tokyo.

For the moment, we must wait until June 11, which is the day the tournament starts, to see how the transmissions will be without this incredible duo of casters.
