The British League of Legends (LoL) color caster Dan ‘Aux’ Harrison has joined the English-speaking broadcasting team of the Chinese LPL.
Aux announced that he will be a full-time caster for the LPL on New Years Eve 2022.
The message comes after that Aux had a successful time as an LPL guest caster during the 2021 summer season.
Aux has a troubled history in the UK League of Legends, having played as support for Excel Esports for nearly two years, helping Excel win its first ESL prem in late 2017 before moving on to casting.
Aux has occupied the NLC – the European Regional League (ERL) for Great Britain, Ireland and Scandinavia – as well as the now defunct UKLC and the Amazon European Masters in summer 2021.
Now he is making an impression in the Chinese League of Legends and will report on games between organizations such as the current world champions Edward Gaming, Team WE, FunPlus Phoenix, LNG, Royal Never Give Up, Top Esports and more.
The LPL’s English speaking talents this summer included British casters Joe ‘Munchables’ Fenny, Irish casters Robert ‘Dagda’ Price and Oisín Molloy, Australian casters Jake ‘Hysterics’ Osypenko, and North American casters Jordan ‘Lyric’ Corby, Alex ‘Magical’ Whieldon and Lennon ‘Mazel’ White.
Esports News UK expects some of them to return to the English-speaking LPL broadcast team in 2022 – an official announcement is expected in the next few days.
A few months ago, Oisín and Dagda also cast the World 2021.
Last week, on this feature on the NLC in 2022, Aux Esports News UK said, “The general salary level [for players] has grown so much, and while it has become more expensive to compete with other ERLs, it has allowed the UK to compete a little better – we were closer to winning the EU Masters than ever before. And I think the teams at the LEC Academy will benefit from increased competition. “
